BORN UNTO TROUBLE
Blowed the dust off from old PS3 and desided to play once again one of my Top 5 favorite games of all time ’cause the newest Red Dead Redemption is only few months away and the hype is almost unbearable.
From the start this game brought some good and almost nostalgic memories back from 2010 and couple years after that when I played this game through over and over again first at my Xbox 360 console and later in my PS3. It means so much for me, ’cause im a huge western fan, fan of Rockstar games and of course all the time I’ve spent on it.
The open world of 1910, nearly end of wild west era is full of life, activities to do and interesting people to meet. From hunting to gambling to unlock outfits and earning reputation. From treasure hunting to helping strangers to see this magnificent looking American and Mexican borderland.
The story itself is so great revenge tale and conclusion very sad. John Marston is very likeable and charismatic antihero who get sucked into this journey by force and has to bring his crimeful past out once again to face it and put it rest once and for all.
Supporting characters are just so fantastic like in all Rockstar’s games. They each have colorful personalities, interesting stories to tell and places to take you.
Graphics, lighting and atmosphere are made so perfectly which are the best features in this game, that you will stop admiring and feeling this beautiful land more than once. Gunplay and sound effects are also so realistic, that you can almost feel the recoil and smell the gunpowder when you’re into some intense duels or hectic battles against banditos.
You can clearly see that Sergio Leone’s westerns has inspired Rockstar while making this western epic and also Ennio Morricone’s music.
This is a masterpiece and I have nothing else but high expectations its sequel which is hitting our shelfs in upcoming fall.
