What do you think of RDR2 so far? (for those who are playing it)

Forums - Gaming Discussion - What do you think of RDR2 so far? (for those who are playing it)

Simply the best game ever made (even though I haven't finished it yet).
No other game has as much work and attention to detail put into them as this. Everything works like it would in real life and you can do almost anything that you could do in real life. You can for example hijack a horse by riding next to it and jumping on it. Or you can fall from your horse if you hit a tree pranch. And the animations couldn't be any better/more life-like.
One of the best things about this is the wildlife/animals (the map is also the best ever, especially the forests, which look unbelievable). There are around 200 different animals and they behave like they would have the AI of real animals. So this game also works as a hunting simulator.
This is the most captivating game that I have ever played. It also looks so good that it could easily be a next-gen game. It will be almost impossible for future games to surpass this.

Well I'm only ten hours in or so.

The ambience is insane. Rdr1 used to make me cringe from some sort of atmospheric euphoria and this one does it in many different ways. The music and implementation is incredible, I think it might be my favourite yet as well as just the SFX, I'm chilling to the the menu music now with the crows and dogs and crickets. It feels real and solid. This is a game I'd play without missions but with the general GTA mission structure so far,which is enhanceda bit I find it much less like missions and more like a beacon for you to start a journey and qho knows where it'll end up. And those journeys are frigging solid and well crafted. VA is amazing in every instance, the graphics are probably better than even Horizon somehow but falter just a tad around the edges at times. Weather, lighting etc is all dynamic and the best in an open world yet. It does many 'bests' or 'bests of open worlds' and I've never been so impressed by an open world this early on, this is around the time the cogs and workings start to show and the structure falls into place, hasn't happened here, it feela like I'm stracthing the surface and there is an ocean underneath and I can't quite gage it's depth. My jaw keeps dropping as I play. I keep hetting distracted in the best of ways. I often get killed on purpose to restart a cool mission for it's vibe. I keep cringing up from insane ambience euphoria and brain orgasms. I'be only just started.

The one , minor complaint I have is the controls are a tiny bit stiff and Arthur is a tiny bit clunky at times and the looting animations take a bit to long. I widh they could be skipped. It's no more stiff than GoW or The witcher 3 though and those games transcended their faults in this manner. I'm surr this will too.

It reminds me of RDR1 mixed with the systems or Kingdom come deliverance and somehow BoTW vibes are coming through all of that, not surr why but it's a good way and not an negative. Oh, and there is a heavy feeling of the witcher 3s influence here in world and mission design. A sort of feeling of more choice than there actually is.

I'm going to down now and play It until tomorrow night as much as I can. I'll update later.

My take is RDR1 + Witcher 3 characters+ TloU like formula.

Finished prologue, go deep into open world.

One of my friends randomly found a dead body with the letter to Bonnie Macfarlane. Actually he kindap a train, fought the trail/bountyhunters, enjoy vistas, go out and this.

Now im trying to check its true, will update later.



Got to the 2nd chapter, played for around 3-4 hrs, and all I can say is, can't wait to get back on it tomorrow, this is one of the games that has great animations, and the little details is so good that people find it a chore, so unfortunate.

I love it, played it for 9 hours straight on launch. One of the best games I've ever played.



AMAZING. It's honestly making Zelda BOTW look completely obsolete a year after it's release.

I still haven't played BOTW yet, i hope this game doesn't ruin my experience. 



I lost my hat in a fight, now im hatless 😂😂



Enjoying so far... clunky as hell... but hey thats rockstar.

Not really doing a lot, still trying to understand what I'm supposed to do.....

Favourite part so far is going to town with Lenny... has to be one of the greatest game sequences I've seen since wolfenstien.
