Yeehaw! Red Dead Redemption

Red Dead Redemption, due out from Rockstar Games this May, is the open world Western we‘ve been waiting for. GTA meets Dirty Harry, if you will.
A recently released gameplay video gives us a better idea of what to expect in the final game.
For starters, we‘ve never seen horses rendered so beautifully in any game. It certainly trumps the horsies in Oblivion, horse armour or no.
Hunting looks interesting, but we couldn‘t help wondering how Rockstar will keep the sprawling landscapes of the Wild West interesting and engaging. Vice City or San Andreas, for instance, are chock-a-block full of people and moving traffic. It would be somewhat harder, we imagine, to conceptualise entire valleys of rattlesnakes, wandering bandits and armoured carriages. If anyone‘s up to the task, though, it has to be Rockstar.
