Red Dead Redemption £33.74 @ Tesco Entertainment [PS3 & Xbox 360 Games]

The old west has been reconstructed in all its glory, in Rockstar's latest and arguably most impressive title to date.

NB: You'll need to use the following code to pick up the game at the advertised price: FTSL15-1

You can round up a copy of the game on either the PS3 or Xbox for £33.74 from Tesco Entertainment, which'll make you a saving of just over £3 on the next best offer of £36.95 from Zavvi.

Red Dead Redeption is an absolute delight to play, whether you're riding across the plains, hold-up behind a rock during a shoot out, or talking to the numerous eccentric characters strewn throughout the land.

The story becomes more intriguing as you progress through the game, beginning in America then venturing into Mexico before returning to the United States once more. Marston's past is slowly revealed during conversations with the people that he meets, who each come with a set of unique quirks and traits.

The sheer magnitude of things to do will keep you going for hours upon end, and I find its very easy to get distracted from the main storyline, simply by wandering through one of the towns, or travelling on the road. You'll encounter strangers who ask you to complete tasks for them, be able to take on jobs at sheriffs offices and cattle ranches, choose to go on bounty hunting missions, and you'll even encounter unique events whilst riding around that need your immediate attention.

Gun fights are packed full of action, thanks largely to a vast array of weapons, nice covering system, and some wonderful character animations. Naturally, you'll be able to use a trusty six-shooter, but you can also pick up repeaters, shotguns, knives, dynamite, and the ridiculously powerful buffalo rifle. The covering system is a vast improvement on other Rockstar game like GTA IV, in fact even at a distance you'll slide across the ground to rest safely behind an upturned stagecoach. Enemies will react in unique way when shot, and my favourite so far has got to be the unlucky few who have got caught in their stirrups and dragged away by their own horses.

Red Dead Redemption is the best game I've played so far this year and I think its going to take something extremely special to knock it off the top spot for 2010.
