We've sat through a few hands-off sessions for Rockstar's Red Dead Redemption, each time wanting more and more to get our hands on the controller and behind the rifle scope.

Thankfully we were given that opportunity a little while ago, and can bring you the verdict, which at the moment sees the game comfortably positioned to out-perform GTA in terms of engagement and control - especially in the action department.

We also have a new video for you to check out, which corresponds to the gunplay mentioned in our preview, which you can view here. We were also given a stack of new screens which you can see samples of below and the full host right here.

This will prolly be banned seeing as it has location damage and you can shoot someone as they're crawling along the ground.

Looks awesome though. Pity it's not coming on PC...yet.

wasnt really keen on this game to start off with, but after seeing a few of the video's lately I've changed my mind. Think its looking really cool, cant wait to get my hands on it.

I can't stress enough how infinitely better than GTA it is. Such a different game with a different feel, and I have a feeling it's going to be a massive undertaking

I've never really rated any of the games that have come out of R* San Diego, always seemed to have just been riding the GTA success coattails of R* North.

Hopefully this one can change my opinion.

damn i still remember pre-ordering Red Dead Revolver. Loved the first one and this one looks pretty darn good as well.

The last few GTA games have been developed really well, even Chinatown wars is a solid game. The problem for me though is personally im getting bored of what to me is basically the same thing over and over again. Hopefully with this they will be able to bring something fresh and different, there really aren't that many great western games around.

I didn't really take any notice of this game as I thought it sounded gay but last week I caught up on all the shiz here and on GA. Now I am pretty excited.

This, mafia2, god of war3. Gotta dust off my ps3. (my comp wont be able to run mafia2)

hmmm mafia 2, you can expect 2K to ramp up the marketing on that one once bioshock 2 has released.
