Red Dead Redemption 2 is in America, in 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must choose between his ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a 2018 action-adventure game developed and published by Rockstar Games. The game is the third entry in the Red Dead series and a prequel to the 2010 game Red Dead.
In simple terms, this game is brilliant. The atmosphere in every single moment is perfect. Along with the soundtracks and other background noises like bird songs or the whistles of policemen, or the rivers. Rockstar has got this game spot on with this. Nature feels real. The noises of the river and small things like a hoot as an owl flies by create such a surreal backdrop.
Then we get to the actual gameplay of this magnificent experience. This is indeed an experience, not a game. You’ll only understand what I mean when you play it. Key moments are displayed perfectly and with the clever use of soundtracks, slow-building tension, and the further environment. It does indeed make the player on the edge. Then you get to meet the gang. With the excellent blend of very in-depth character development, they, along with Arthur, you get to see develop into even more complex characters. So unique.
Arthur Morgan is a gentleman. Throughout the story, you see how this man, with all his witts, sees people for who they are. He sees and feels like a real person. A person who stays true to himself. Once he gets TB, he knows that he doesn’t have long left, so he goes on a redemption spree. That’s the main story anyway. Then with the many endings, which I will not mention, you go onto the epilogue. John Marston, who you will remember from the first red dead redemption. Watch and experience as he builds his old life and gets revenge. Not as good, as the main story but great nonetheless. The last mission is worth it.
Rockstar Games knows how to create a good game. Yes, it is slow, to move from one place to another on horseback, but the game is so jam-packed with detailed side missions, hidden features, and extremely detailed story missions, that it’s all worth it in the end for me. It’s one of the most beautiful games I’ve ever seen, in terms of quality. It’s incredibly realistic, more than most games out there. Like GTA V, Rockstar stepped it up with the quality and the storytelling, compared to their previous games, and it is even better in this game. They built such an intricate and fascinating life history for all the characters, and you find out as the story progresses. You find yourself almost building an emotional connection to the majority of the main characters by the end. And of course, they made the story perfect as a prequel to the first RDR, Blackwater and New Austin are very close to being identical to the first game, which makes it all the better. As I said before, it’s just incredible the amount of detail that went into this game. In terms of Online… It’s constantly improving as time goes on. It hasn’t gone off the walls like GTA Online has, and you get money in return from Online missions that you play, unlike GTA Online. As I said, it’s continuing to get better and better, with new missions, and businesses, it’s a similar idea to GTA Online’s businesses (except the RDR Online businesses won’t cost you a small fortune in shark cards or whatever.) Everything fits in perfectly for an outlaw out in the country of America, in 1899. (Just like GTA Online, RDR Online is set a month or so before the story starts.) Also, the amount of maturity among players Online compared to GTA Online is staggering. There is much less griefing, and players are a hell of a lot more respectful than they are in GTA Online. I give this game a 10/10, it’s a really good one. And give Online a chance as well, it’ll just get better and better.
Red dead online is good. In recent months, small things like gang encounters and wolf attacks add the necessary edge to the game and add depth to it. The variation in businesses also adds a range of different features and activities that players enjoy. Also, players on this game seem so much nicer than on Gta, you can encounter them without being blown up. Then there is the different set’s hope that rockstar continues with these improvements.
