Once in the Wild WestThe theater had read from the hanger, and Western - with a plot strings, which certainly appears revenge, betrayal, or search for justice. However, neither the first nor the second or even third in the game there. The protagonist of John Marston - a man with a dark past and a difficult fate. Son of a prostitute and recidivist, he was a child left to himself, and the first years of his life were spent in an orphanage. In his youth, he contacted the company and became a nasty thug. But years later, still managed to get out of the cesspools of lawlessness and even started a family, but another twist of fate put an end to his idyllic future plans. Now he works for state agents who are required to find and catch (or kill) Bill Williamson - a former partner in crime, and the sister of John. This offer impossible to refuse, or suffer family hero.
Does not lag behind the visual element and sound. Bill Elm and Woody Jackson wrote a great soundtrack, in collaboration with famous singers and groups: Jose Gonzales, Jamie Lidell and Ashtar Command. Dialogues delivered beautifully, but the style is very reminiscent of "Inglourious Basterds" by Quentin Tarantino. Without a literate world the local dialogues would have lost the lion's share of appeal, and largely thanks to the tasty language achieved the desired game atmosphere.
Grand Theft HorsesIf you think that the RDR - this is GTA IV with horses, you are absolutely and totally ... right. Rockstar and the GTA - it's like Lenin and the Party: say one thing - mean another, and vice versa. The legacy of the games about Niko Belik project got not only the engine but the gameplay - a huge world that is constantly something going on. Included also: a set of several hundred primary and secondary missions, a wide selection of weapons and support items, and of course the horses, which here, too, countless.
At our first meeting RDR is more reminiscent of Mexican prikornuvshego a sultry afternoon under a tree after a glass of tequila. It seems that in the game and do something special there is nothing, but unhurried plot entry only strengthens this conviction. Nevertheless, the first impression is deceptive: in less than an hour later you find yourself on the ears mired in twists and turns of the main and additional jobs, fight, walk away from the chase, save their lives and take away other people's. Duel with the local analog Slo-mo (Dead Eye), performed excellently, and just shooting did not cease to please the eye and after 10 and 20 hours of passage. Redemption, as well as GTA IV, requiring an average of 20-25 hours for the passage story campaign, and somewhere around 10-12 - to a secondary mission. This does not mean that you will pass it strictly for that time, because it the glory of such projects - they can live with.
The top tenRed Dead Redemption - certainly a new word in the genre of games with open world, the best game in Western history, and while the main contender for the title of "Game of the Year. Is it better than GTA IV? Rather no than yes.But the creation of Rockstar San Diego is uniquely furnishes the famous series on the part of the attention to detail, and the local Wild West is perceived holistic eclectic metropolis of Liberty City. This is the case when the fault does not want, and occasions for quibbles we practically do not. One word - ten points, ladies and gentlemen, ten points!
