    Honestly, I don't trust IGN's take on a Rockstar game one whit. Red Dead Revolver was great, but it was also so much not a typical Rockstar game -- the Capcom roots really show.

    Hopefully, this'll be good, but Red Dead Revolver shone because of gameplay systems, which isn't Rockstar's forte.

    I hope the gun combat is much better than GTAs. I'd really like a good western, especially one with a huge sandbox world, but if the gun fights aren't fight it won't work. My worry is it'll just feel like a reskinned GTA. And it better have some good multiplayer modes so I can have an online posse to cause trouble.

    Trains with horses carriages or some other time lapsed travel would be easy.

    so they are supposing that the map will be even bigger than GTA San Andreas, what the biggest map in a game ? Just Cause(though the map is this one is pretty repetitive) ?

    This game is a cool surprise, but I really hope it doesn't feel too much like GTA. I really like GTA4, but I think after the retail game, and the DLC, and more DLC to come, I'll be all GTA'd out if Red Dead Redemption also plays mostly the same.

    Those interviews are pretty good. They've definitely captured my interest. Lookin' forward to this title, but I'm assuming it's a long way off.

    I'd still like to see more detail about combat. When I think of westerns, one of the first things that comes to mind is sharpshooters and trick shots. Firing rifles at long ranges using those weird rifle sights, and shooting guns out of people's hands. It sounds like they want to go for realism, but some of those westerny tricks would be nice. Oh, and they should have single action pistols that you can fan.

    I think they mentioned in one of the articles about being able to shoot the guns out of people's hands and shoot their hats off and stuff.

    Sounds pretty cool, I'll probably pick it up even though I can't bring myself to finish GTA IV or even start the Lost & Damned.

    Awesome. I'm hoping the gun play is better than in GTA4. GTA4 is all about the vehicles, but westerns are all about the gun fights.
