It was a week of “transmedia” entertainment in the world of Kotaku reviews, with big games like UFC Undisputed 2010 and Red Dead Redemption (finally!) reviewed alongside new books and movies. What’s next? Reviews of chicken sandwiches?!
Red Dead Redemption Review: Feel Good Outlaws
Our most glowing review of the week goes to Rockstar’s wild west open world adventure, with its stellar single-player and great online dust-ups. Bugs and nitpicks aside, highly rewarding.

Budding racing game designers should pay close attention to United Front’s “Play, Create, Share” kart racer, the LittleBigPlanet of arcade-style driving games.
UFC Undisputed 2010 Review: A Light Heavyweight Rematch
THQ’s annual MMA sim excels at delivering a punch, but its online mode is hardly a knockout.

The Art Of Uncharted 2 Review: Glossy, Glossy
Would you spend $US300 to look at the gorgeous art of Kotaku’s Game of the Year for 2009? We tell you if it’s trash or treasure.
Metal Torrent Micro-Review: Not As Good As A Coinstar
It may not be as much fun as turning coins into dollar bills, but Arika’s downloadable shoot ’em up does meet the genre’s basic requirements – spaceships shoot, things blow up.
