Be that as it may, when the open-world Western action game was initially released, it overwhelmingly took a positive reaction from both fans and critics. The video game was built on the RAGE engine and ran on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Some critics even stated back then that it is the best game to hit those two systems, Polygon reported.
Anyway, in the original title, a player will portray the main protagonist, John Marston, who is forced to take on work from a gang after his wife and son are taken hostage. The game has a person playing in a third-person perspective, as that person ramble through 1911's Mexico, as well as the western United States.
