Best games of 2010 (part one)

I've decided to talk about what games I enjoyed the most of 2010. I hate to say this but for me as a gamer 2010 was not a good year. The start was slow and the end had only a few ket titles that kept me entertained however this does not mean that all the games sucked, the best games are up as some of the best games of all time. So I'll start with one which I've been waiting a long time for.

3. Red Dead Redemption

The thrid best game of 2010 and there is a big difference between this and the fourth best game of 2010 (I suppose its Call of Duty or something.) Red Dead Redemption is a rooting tooting cowboy adventure, its a game I have been waiting for since Red Dead Revolover which had the action but no sandbox world to get lost in. Then a few years later Gun came out and it was the best cowboy game I had ever played for the weekend. So I've been waiting for a cowboy game with the world to have fun in, waiting since the PS2. So When the new Red Dead game I was (needless to say) excited about it and well It was well worth the wait so what makes it the third best game of 2010 well I'll start with graphics.


This game looks better than any other game, from the landscape to the wildlife to all the people everything looks like it should. On my first day of owning this game I went to explore. I found the highest mountain I could find and looked over the land as the sun set over the desert. I sat on my horse looking out over this new world and thought that this could be one I care for, one where if bad things happen I would see it happen and feel bad about it. I then rode down the mountain made camp and waited till sunrise before making my way back to town. This world is full of nature and wild life so watching this world is better than any other world but who wants to watch?


This is the most important part of any game and Red Dead has plenty to keep it going, from the start with horse riding to hunting to fighting outlaws to robbing banks. This is a game you play your way as you ride around in this world, anything you point at you can make dead. To start with the missions are simaler to GTA and are possible the weakest part of the gameplay, it follows the simple stucture of talking to someone, riding somewhere, talking to someone else, shooting alot of things then maby riding somewhere else to shoot some more things then your done for another day. Its what you do between missions that makes this a truely amazing game. Hunting is great because there are some many diffrent types of animal to hunt, from the humble duck to deadly bear anything that moves can be filled with bullets, skinned and sold. There are flowers to go gather, poker games to win bandito hideouts to smoke out and prostitutes to save from stabbings. There is alot to do and not much time to do it in, well theres plenty of time but who cares go see this world.


The music in this world is nice and the sound effects work well, however one problem (Elsewise I wouldnt have botherd with sound and just skipped to scoring) and its that the game keeps playing the rattle snake sound as a part of music. So every now and then I freeze and dont know what to do, only to find that it was the music.


Grapics 9/10 as close to perfection without actualy being perfect.
Sound 10/10 sound doesnt bother me too much but this game has it.
Gameplay 8/10 there is a shit load to do but to be honest most of it is just messing about.

Overall 9/10 Almost perfect but just has something missing.
