This is a fantastic action game. Rockstar knows how to make great games.. I am a fan of all the GTA games, midnight club, and other games and I have to say I am impressed with this game... The characters are fantastic in this game.. John Marston the protagonist is really funny, interesting and a family man. The single player in this game MAKES U WANT TO LOVE THIS GAME.. it reminds me of the movies 3:10 to yuma, the good the bad and the ugly, the proposition, a fistful of dollars, and Open Range.. The game takes the cowboy genre to far beyond. This is one of the best western games ever... Besides the missions which are typical GTA style (kill somebody, protect somebody, etc) the minigames are fun, like texas holdem poker, knife on hand, blackjack, and others.. Also u can hunt deer, horses, and birds and is pretty fun. The multiplayer is good but can grow stale if u dont play with friends and the only complaint i have about it is the cheap kills and hard multiplayer community... Also another complaint is that the graphics do not look amazing but good at least.. This game is like 50 dollars now and is easily one of the best i have played in 2010.. do yourself a favor and pick this one up!!!
