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 open world game i have ever played. Graphics, animation, detail, gameplay just simply astonishing.

really good so far. characters seems a little stiff and it started off a little slow than i'd liked.. But I love the hunting and the animals



I'm surprised by the mixed response on here so far. I'm looking forward to starting it later today.



I find myself going off the beaten path and checking out random things that look interesting regularly. Somehow Rockstar managed to do this without making the weapons as fragile as Micah's ego. Imagine that...

Fantastic game. Have you guys discovered the uhh... suspended half corpse with the message yet?



It's the best game of the generation and very deserving of its 97 Metacritic score. Rockstar, CDPR and Nintendo cannot be touched when it comes to open world games this generation.

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.

Yeah, lol. The Lenny mission was hilarious, almost on par with the similar quest in The witcher 3... almost.

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'd play BoTW first if I were you. They have upped the cieling on the things BoTW done best, the atmosphere the exploration and the emergent 'narratives' while getting lost off the beaten track. I'm no boTW head, I thought it was a decent game, 8 out of 10 maybe at most but like the other user said it makes BoTW look obsolete, well in done aspects anyway. It obviously doesn't have physics based puzzles and what not. That said it is also making TW3 and even Horizon Zero dawn look a generation behind in many aspects as well. It is raising the bar in many ways so if you think that will affect your enjoyment of previous open world games I'd skip this until you have played the others first. You should 't have any issues however if you leave a stretch and play a few different genres after this to cleanse your pallet after RDR2.

It wouldn't honestly two sets of difference experiences. Also I would not take contest opinion of BOTW, he has been actively downplaying it for better part of a year, even calling it niche. I highly doubt he has even played it at this point.

On actually anything for that matter.

I'm not through the opening yet, played for 2 hours so far. It's slow, controls are the usual mix of bad aiming and steering. The body 'maintenance' mechanic feels unnecessary and seems to merely be an excuse to gather a ton of food crap to carry along. Body count is silly again, it took forever to loot all the bodies after the first big shoot out.

Yeah, it definitely feels unnecessary. I didn't buy RDR2 so I could have a DayZ/Rust like survival experience. I hope they patch in an option to turn that off in the near future. 

Yea that is so freaking dumb man. Bloating the game with useless junk. The beginning is slower than Twilight Princess. *fall asleep emote*
