When walking around in the vast world of Red Dead Redemption, random events can occur. This pacticular random event can be found by following the noise of guns firing. It can be heared from maybe half a mile away and if you listen very well to the 3D sound you can pin point the location of the shootout. This way sound is used to enhance the game experience. Also: the sound of your gun firing sounds realistic and statisfying. Furthermore the music makes excelent switches between action packed and peaceful moments. Notice the switch as soon as the bandits are defeated. Last: the balance of sounds is done very well. There is a lot going on but every sound can be heared. The galloping horse, the naying of the horse, the shooting, cursing people etc.
