Watch the trailer, seriously. Rockstar Games are masters of this stuff. Done? OK, what's the deal, Max? You're just some hired gun? Fighting a bunch of other hired guns? Oh, police? Private military? Craziness!
As entertaining and explosive as the single-player campaign is, I'm much more interested see more of the game's multiplayer offerings. Red Dead Redemption's given me more confidence than ever in Rockstar's ability to create competitive experiences that are just as deep, involving, and fun as the single-player offerings.
