I gotta say, I am darned impressed with the horse-and-rider animations in Red Dead Redemption. Also, the writing and the voice acting - it's simply spot on for pretty much any western I have ever seen. Alas, I still suck at anything harder that 'casual' and even on 'casual' hostages have this tendency to die while I am still trying to figure out how I am supposed to shoot the ones holding them. But I am getting better.

I heard (on a Bethesda Podcast, in fact) that it takes about 4 hours to figure out how to play the game and another 4 hours to get any good at it, but it's completely worth that time. It's taking me a bit longer (not shocking at all) but I have to say I agree with the statement.

Deadeye makes everything much easier once you get it.

I missed the message about how to even turn Dead Eye on, so ... that kind of sucked for a while, until I found where in the journal all that kind of stuff is collected. That, and looking at walkthroughs and the like. You can be just screwed if you miss a little message while desperately trying to do what you were told to. If you ask me, that's a bit of a design flaw.

Actually after a while when your deadeye is upgraded, it basically makes you unstoppable.

For a real challenge you'll have to head up in the mountains and try killing a Grizzly with a knife :P

It's taken some tenaciousness, yes. But then, I find the animation of the main character dead sexy, which helps me hang in there. ;)
