Goofs

When Jack Marston confronts Agent Ross, he tells him he saw him kill his father, but at the moment John was shot, Jack was at least a mile away from the farm, escaping on horseback with his mother. They turn around and go back after they hear the gunshots, so there was no way Jack could have actually witnessed Ross killing John. See more »

Quotes

Bonnie MacFarlane: Are you a religious man?
John Marston: Not in any real sense. Sometimes I tell myself that things happen for a reason. Like what brought me here was fate come-a-callin. But nobody made my path but me.
Bonnie MacFarlane: We all need to look for answers somewhere. Some in big ol' books, and others in big bottles of whiskey.
John Marston: Believing in some kinda divine purpose ain't gonna bring me my wife and kid back. Past is who we are Miss MacFarlane. And there ain't no changing that. Faith is a luxury I can't afford.

Western of the highest quality
6 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I not gonna go to into detail but I will say this is simply the best game ever made.

This beats previous favourites such as Resident Evil 4 and Grand Theft Auto IV.

This is a masterclass in what a game should be.

I insist people go out and bye this.

You won't regret it.

Even if you aren't a fan of the western genre you should get this because it has a brilliant story and breathtaking missions.

Don't let me down.
