GameSpot has gotten a hands-on play of Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption.


Having wrapped things up with Irish, we moved on to an exclusive look at one of the game's more unsettling characters, Seth Briars. He is, to put it bluntly, completely insane. He's a prospector driven mad through a combination of too much sun and an obsession with finding buried treasure. When you meet up with him for this mission, he is in an animated conversation with a long-dead corpse, and things just go downhill for him from there. Fighting your way through a set of bandits with the madman on your tail--and quite often charging out in front in his lust for his treasure--is a fairly tense affair, and the game's Ennio Morricone-style music adds to the atmosphere.

Check out the rest of the preview here. GameSpot also talks about the Dead Eye targeting system and a little about the animals of the game plus some activities. Part 2 will be released tomorrow.
