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

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.

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. 

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*

I wouldn't worry. RDR2 has nothing on the game play design of BotW. The attention to detail is astounding in RDR2 yet the game play so far is the same old. Control wise BotW also works much better. They are two very different games.

You can better compare it to Horizon zero dawn. RDR2 might be better than that, except for now the clunky controls and not so good HDR use are holding it back a bit. For world design it easily beats HZD, of course weapons and enemies are kinda limited due to the setting.

I haven't played AC odyssey, that should be a better comparison. Both trying to be semi realistic 'limited' by accurately representing a time period.

Can't wait to play more. I need to head back to camp as apparently my weapons are on my horse there.

Also majorly, the uses of a physic engine that changes all the dynamics of how you explore the world and combat your enemies.

To be honest, comparing these 2 games isn't a worthwhile venture since you can point out so many things that are just not the same by design.

Case in point, the tutorial section's of both.

So far I havent seen the greatness in this game.

All are quite different indeed.

Botw: Smaller play area you get dumped in immediately with lot of fun things to find and do while learning the core mechanics. At first you don't even realize you're in a restricted area, then your mind gets blown when you get to the real world.
RDR2: 2 to 3 hour linear mission that fails when you leave the path. (you get to chose whether you want to do hunt or assault first)
HZD: Shorter linear mission to dump you in a restricted area. Takes 10 hours for the game to open up and get good.
Spiderman: Short linear mission with vertical learning curve, not the best idea. But damn those controls are polished to perfection.

Really. all 4 are amazing to play and if anything stands out as falling behind it would be Tomb raider. I don't feel like picking that up anymore at all after starting RDR2.
