Rockstar's ultraviolent open-world take on the Wild West genre has been attracting excellent reviews and a massive fan base... but it's now dipped below £30 thanks to Simply Games. They're currently willing to part with Red Dead Redemption for £29.85, which will save you £4 compared to Tesco Entertainment's FTSL 15-1 voucher code price. Note that this deal only applies to the Xbox 360 version.
Red Dead Redemption allows you to step into the sweaty leather boots of former outlaw John Marston, who's forced out of retirement with a truly horrifying ultimatum. Tasked with bringing his former gang mates to justice, he sets out on an epic tale of revenge, redemption and lassoing random people for the sheer unadulterated hell of it.
The world of RDR is huge, beautiful and absolutely brutal. Massive open vistas, plains and mesas evoke scenes from classic Westerns- and whilst they're a little empty and lonely compared to the likes of Fallout 3, they're an absolute pleasure to behold. Mounted combat, gunslinging and lassoing are all handled extremely well- and as you'd expect from a Rockstar title, RDR doesn't skimp on the nasty. There's even an achievement for lassoing a woman to the train tracks! A bevy of subquests and expansive multiplayer free-roam modes provide a huge amount of content and value for money.
Whilst a few clipping and AI issues occasionally get in the way, RDR is an anjoyable and mature romp through one of the most impressive open worlds we've seen in a long time. Why not check out Tom's full review, pardner?
