Eight years! TO Rockstar Games are there took eight years to create a game that followed in the footsteps of Red Dead Redemption – a title that left many players in tears, including me in 2010. Technically a prequel, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the story of Arthur Morgan, a gunslinger who survived the Wild West in the late 1800s.
If you know something about Rockstar Games, you probably know about Red Dead Redemption 2 and the clamor that surrounds it. But is it really worth it? Well, I spent dozens of hours in Arthur's boots exploring the Wild West, and let me tell you that without a doubt the best open-world game I've ever played.
Arthur Morgan takes into consideration
Red Dead Redemption 2 different from any open world game I've ever played beforeAnd believe me, I've played many games in my life. So what makes Red Dead Redemption 2 special? Honestly, you really have to play to appreciate it, but here is my overview of the game –
Note: we had the PlayStation 4 version for review and all screenshots were acquired on a PlayStation 4 Pro (Rs. 39.990) in 4K.
The Age of Outlaws & Gunslingers
Red Dead Redemption 2 takes place in the 1899, ie 12 years before the tragic events that took place in life of John Marston . Unlike the lush vegetation shown in most trailers, the game will take you to the snow-covered mountains, where Morgan and his gang are on the run trying to escape from "Blackwater" after a robbery.
The broken band
The gang is starving and freezing cold. Not a pretty sight to see your companions in pain and agony, but own the that the game really shines. Make you cry for tragic events, but it makes you do Rockstar and throws a mixture of surprises to accompany it.
The Red Dead Redemption 2 takes place before the original game, so you already know that the band will fall apart. Honestly, at first I thought that Red Dead Redemption 2 would pick up where the last one started, and continued the story of Marston's son, Jack, but I'm glad that Rockstar has decided to tell the story that leads to the tragic events seen in the previous title.
"Red dead redemption 2 return characters will make you smile"
More than anything I was happy with see a completely different side of Dutch – a charismatic leader who (alert spoiler) will be kicked out and killed by one of his 12 years later. And not just the Dutch return that made me smile. I was happy and a little surprised to see other characters like Edgar Ross, Abigail and others who made an appearance in the game.
Arthur Morgan threatens a stranger
A charming cowboy
The main man, Morgan, an excellent protagonist of this story. the type able to show off a clean-shaven look and get the mutton chops. Morgan looks scary, but don't judge him by the gruff tone in his voice; may be occasionally funny when he drinks something at the Saloon, but he never forgets that even a cold-blooded murderer. There are certainly moments when you see the warmth and excitement of Morgan shine, especially as he tends to his steed .
Morgan loves his coffee
"Look, I'm not a good person. I'm a murderer. "THE dialogues like this add a punch to the character of Arthur, despite those softer moments. Props on Rockstar to write and offer a protagonist cos powerful and versatile .
Arthur Lightens Up from time to time, but a cold-blooded murderer in the heart.
Honestly, I was very skeptical about the protagonist of Red Dead Redemption 2, but I'm happy to announce that you'll have a great time at share the screen with Morgan, get drunk, make coffee and ride a horse.
Arthur Morgan – The brute with a heart?
The Wild West Vista
Part of the reason why I can't stop myself from playing Red Dead Redemption 2, despite the fact that the main story missions are laboriously long, due to his world incredibly detailed and expansive . Give her Blackwater shores to beautiful mountains of Overlook to iron of horse, all exquisite, as if it were hand painted.
Rockstar has clearly spent a lot of time paying attention to every detail, and the result, mind you, is very good. I was lucky enough to play this game in glorious 4K, and I can tell you that every corner of this incredibly detailed world . He talks a lot about Rockstar's resources and the effort required to make it live.
Look at the glory
Red Dead Redemption 2 also feels more realistic compared to other games like, for example, the Rockstar GTA V, mainly due to the animations. Corpses, for example, must be physically abused before looting . The guns must be armed before firing. Heck, you also have to prepare your coffee and pour the stew into a bowl before you can hit "R2" to consume Arthur.
The main story of Red Dead Redemption 2 runs parallel to the side noises.
Yes, it looks like a thankless task, but I absolutely love it. I wanted to play such a realistic game like this forever, and it's no wonder that I love Red Dead Redemption 2. It brings you closer to the ground and the world adds a layer of complexity that no other title can equal at least today's standard. Red Dead Redemption 2, just like most open world games, lets you travel fast. However, you will have to manually unlock the feature (surprise!) By acquiring a map in the Morgan field.
also admirable as you can interact with anything and everything in Red Dead Redemption 2. You can stop and smell the roses (not really), pet the dogs, capture 30 different types of fish, or just sit and have a conversation with a stranger in a bar or with your loved one . These are small details like these that inject real life into this virtual world, and probably the reason why I see myself returning to this game even after I have completed the main story.
Arthur with his flame, Mary
Mustache or mutton chops?
The character customization was epitome of Rockstar games, so it's not really a surprise to see him return to Red Dead Redemption 2. But what is really wonderful, once again, how incredibly detailed everything is. When it comes to physical appearance, facial hair, body weight, etc. About Morgan they will change over time. You will begin to shake your beard if you are unable to free up time at the camp for personal grooming, and begin to gain weight if you continue to fill it with food.
Morgan needs a shave, and it's up to you to do it
Too much alcohol not good – Not in life and certainly not in Red Dead Redemption 2
Customization and character updates, by the way, are not just limited to Arthur's clothes. You can (and really should) level up on yours horse and also buy some significant field updates . Oh, and I told you you should clean your guns of occasionally, to be sure that it continues with the harsh life of the Wild West.
This is my hunting rifle; there are many like this, but this is mine
The Return of Dead Eye
Dead Eye was undoubtedly one of my favorite elements in the original Red Dead Redemption, so I was happy to see him come back here with some significant improvements. You can touch "R3" (aiming a weapon with L2) to activate Dead Eye and now evidenzier the critical areas on the target . For example, shoot at the feet of a grizzly bear make it easier to slow it down by slowing it down. It sounds like an obvious move, but easy to forget when an angry 600-pound Grizzly is pointing at you.
Dead Eye will slow things down to buy you some time
While we're at it, let me tell you that Horse Bonding also a great addition to the game. I took it very seriously from the moment I was introduced. As you would expect, there are a variety of different horses in the game, and every horse different.
Remember, your horse can die and there is no way to bring it back.
Unlike other games, you can't just jump on any available horse nearby . You can only count on the horses you have tied with, as others will kick you and abandon you when they hear a gunshot or see a predator. Trust me, the Bonding with horses can really make or destroy your experience in Red Dead Redemption 2 . So take care of this and don't let your steed die otherwise you'll have to buy a new one and start over.
Don't mess with your steed
You may have seen it in trailers and screenshots revealed by Rockstar, but I say it again – Red Dead Redemption 2 has the most impressive lighting and weather effects I've seen personally in a game . I recently played Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which was praised for its game lighting, but RDR 2 is the cake for me. The undeniably cute game, and leaves others behind in this regard.
Glorious morning sun
impressive to see how light passes through, for example, a wooden ceiling or between trees when they are in the woods. I suck for good lighting in games and I love it here.
The sunsets are spectacular in Red Dead Redemption 2
Also character models and well animated horses represent a great experience. Remember, this is a game where yours poorly maintained weapon will keep rustso don't be surprised if you find yourself in the main story admiring the amazing attention to detail.
I spy on another booty
Rockstar Games has always been good with dialogues and Red Dead Redemption 2 is no exception. However, the background score, music and audio effects add to that fantastic immersive feeling.
He usually doesn't pay too much attention to game music, but Woody Jackson has done an exceptional job here. the same composer who scored all the Rockstar titles from the original Red Dead Redemption, but this, in my opinion, is still his best work. From terrifying assault sequences to cowboy celebrations, the background score brings out the best in every scene and somehow it fits perfectly.
I can write a lot about amazing sound effects, but something which you will have to try yourself to understand . From sound of splashing mud during the rains on the dry leaves crumbling under your feet in a jungle on a sunny day, you can hear every pin drop. You know that Rockstar paid a lot of attention to details when you can hear a difference in the shots and tell if a bullet was fired on a mountain top (with crackling echoes) or inside a house (a muffled blow). something that they could easily have avoided and no one would have noticed. But Rockstar, being Rockstar, has done everything possible to perfect it.
Get closer to the killing
Red Dead Redemption 2: the greatest title of the modern era?
Having spent a good deal of time with the game, it's easy for me to tell my experiences and share some glorious screenshots, which, by the way, look like a work of art. But no praise would be enough to show you why Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the greatest AAA titles of all time. You just have to play with it. Red Dead Redemption 2 a long game, but you'll like it without exception.
I played many modern and open-world games like The Witcher 3, Metal Gear Solid 5 and Grand Theft Auto V. from Rockstar. But I've never seen this detail and the atmosphere in any other game. He explains why Rockstar Games took 8 years to deliver it.
I have zero doubts in saying that Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game not to be missed. Rockstar not only managed to stage his greatest narrative hat, but it also offered a level of attention to detail never seen before in any film or television program, let alone an open-world game. a skillfully realized title, and the time to return to the Wild West.
