Red Dead Redemption (2010)
Defiinitely my vote for game of the YEAR
This has got to be one of the best (if not THE BEST) sandbox game that I have ever played. Rockstar keeps on pumping out great quality games and I'm sure they will keep on doing it for a long time.
The story (If you have been living in a cave) goes like this: You play a FORMER outlaw named John Marsten who was apparently left for dead after a botched robbery and he left his gang that day and tried to go straight. He got married and has a son, they lived quietly on a ranch and John had tried to forget his past. for several years he was at peace with the world.
Unfortunately that obviously did not work out at all as the government wants to use him to find his old gang members and they do that by keeping his family hostage.
The game (built on RAGE which was used on GTA4) looks great and very realistic. From the style of the clothes to the buildings, horses, etc. All of the towns in the game are teeming with life with people going about their daily business.
In fact you can do so much in the game like play poker, hunt wild animals, collect on 'bounties', hunt for treasure, ride around aimlessly, or just admire the view from the top of one of the many hills and mountains. There is so much content in this game that if you had to take out all of the content that is not needed for the story, and had everything else as each as it's own game, there would be like 20 or so, just like in Grand Theft Auto 4.
Expect nothing but the best of what Rockstar has to offer and this is one of the few games that was really worth the price of purchase (unlike TERMINATOR SALVATION where I had finished it in a mere 6 hours) and will keep you entertained for months to come.
Normally I am a bit skeptical when it comes to sport movies but when I heard that this one was being made I hoped to myself that Clint Eastwood does it justice as many of us South Africans that were alive at that time (and also like myself went to see the final match at Ellis Park) still have very fond memories of it. This film does not fail. It doesn't even come close to failing. But what the film did show is that sport and politics can be used to bring people together. And yes Morgan Freeman, in my opinion, did not fail as Nelson Mandela. Matt Damon was good (his South African accent is probably as good any American can do it, and the best that I have heard in any American financed movie) as Captain Francois Pienaar but the real scene stealer is Freeman. The rugby being played in the film was real. The 'plays' in the film were real. Everything about the film was about as close to the event as it can be. Don't watch it on a small screen, it literally begs to be watched on a HUGE SCREEN!!!
