So now that I've completed gta4 I realize that was good practice for this game. In fact I have to ask, what are the essential differences between Red and gta4? It seems like it's designed in a similar way as gta4 and also includes a list of characters who give you various missions. Is the premise the same in that you have story missions that you can follow in a linear way to complete the game, with side missions if you want to linger? And what's the story? Just arresting or killing the cowboy gang you meet at the beginning?
