Rockstar Games have proven their open world gaming capabilities with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2. The game is truly a masterpiece for fans of cowboy games.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is an interesting game. Fun is pushed to the background in place of realism and a dedication to keeping the world grounded in reality. You’re a guest and you have to play by the rules, and Rockstar lets you know this by dictating everything and putting a limit on what you can and can’t do.
Rockstar Games has a reputation of setting new standards for open world games and with Red Dead Redemption 2 they've done it again. The entire world is a technical masterpiece and one of the most believable virtual worlds ever created. Complementing this incredibly polished world is a story full of layered characters, each with purpose and desire, that makes the entire journey worthwhile. What unfortunately holds back Red Dead Redemption 2 is the difficult controls and sacrificing convenience for realism. Red Dead Redemption 2 takes a lot of risks for taking a more realistic approach that doesn't always work but the phenomenal story and the outstanding open world makes this a western no one should miss.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the true Western experience that you've been looking for with an incredibly lengthy and narrative driven campaign that promotes complete freedom.
Red Dead Redemption 2 has problems when it comes to its moment-to-moment gameplay but its attempt at pushing the boundary in mechanics, interaction and narrative within an open world that’s one of the finest ever crafted, almost more than makes up for its faults.
Rockstar have redefined open world gaming in blistering fashion. If you don’t own this game by now you owe it to yourself as a gamer to experience an absolute classic. My only concern now is how do Rockstar top this.
Despite it having some wrinkles, Red Dead Redemption 2 introduces more than enough innovations to provide one of the most immersive and captivating open world games ever made.
