Red Dead Redemption: First Impressions

I found the first couple hours of this game to be almost agonizingly boring. But ever since I acquired a lasso and the Dead Eye ability, I've begun to feel like a bona fide cowboy. Here's hoping that Redemption proves itself to be more than simply "Grand Theft Horse"!

@schizogony:  Yes this needs to be etched on stone tablets and brought to the people.
@RAmpersaND: It get's better once the plot actually starts which, from the sounds of it, is where you are now.

@schizogony: Thanks. Please do.
 
@simian: Yeah - a couple of my friends urged me to push past "the tutorial", and they were right to do so.
