This is an all-time great: a masterpiece that deserves to be mentioned alongside Ocarina of Time, Half-Life 2, Metal Gear Solid 3, Skyrim, and most recently, The Witcher 3. It’s also the best game of the past five years. It moves with the clumsy heaviness of a 19th century locomotive, but like that locomotive becomes unstoppable once it builds up a head of steam. Or might they shoot first and ask questions later?

Of course, all of that – whether you’re playing on the lowest or highest settings – now comes with a comprehensive photo mode that I’ve not been able to stop using. "Some may struggle with its initial blast of uncompromising pacing". Mind your direction, for it is perilously easy to broadside a passing civilian and instigate a firefight, or to collide with a rock or tree, sending man and horse careening catawampus to the ground. As well as the new graphical enhancements and a couple of minor gameplay additions, like new bandit camps and some new weapons and mounts, the PC version of Red Dead II adds a heavily customisable photo mode. He’s a master marksman, horse rider, and gang leader. “I suppose our reputation as a company was that we’re profoundly antisocial, histrionic and looking to be controversial,” Dan Houser told the New York Times in a 2012 interview promoting Grand Theft Auto V. “And we simply never saw it in that light.

Performance itself has been really solid so far, but it’s worth noting for those with lower-end machines that it is a very resource-intensive game. Before wading further into the Old West weeds to tell you exactly why RDR2 is the best game of the last half decade, it’s difficult to entirely separate the adventure from the recent accusations levelled at Rockstar Games.

The caravan is driven east—yes, east—through grasslands and plantations, to swamps, cities, and beyond. Yet the two are more than separate links in a chain of iteration; just as often, they are complementary halves of a whole. Micah, een snel schietend bendelid met een grote bek, beklaagt zich er bijvoorbeeld over dat hij in het tijdelijke onderkomen in de bergen geen eigen kamer heeft, en Arthur wel. And we know that John’s son Jack is doomed to take up his father’s mantle of outlaw and gunslinger. It’s epic, human, introspective, and dramatic in its own right, all the while placing its predecessor in a new and even more touching light. Arthur werd als kleine jongen door Dutch onder zijn hoede genomen en geldt sindsdien als een van de meest betrouwbare kompanen van de bendeleider. The thrill of playing Red Dead 2, like with many other Rockstar games, comes not from how fun or empowering it feels on a moment to moment basis.
At the moment the only issue I’ve had is glitching menus when changing HDR from on to off, and a crash when I decided it might be sensible to put MSAA up to 8x at 4K (see: it wasn’t). This wonderful, unusual game was clearly a titanic logistical undertaking. Red Dead 2’s horses are meticulously detailed and gorgeously animated, and move through the world like real animals, right up until they don’t. Seemingly every minute reveals yet more surprises. A small town jail break and a big city tram chase are two of my favourites throughout the story, but the absolute highlight is a shocking full-stop banger at the end of chapter three, set in the plantation ranches of the Bayou to the south-east of the map. "It’s an example of the sort of high caliber storytelling we all deserve in 2018". The story is so well told, you’ll emotionally invest more in a horse during one crucial scene than you did even for Kratos in this year’s stellar God of War revival. Characters may ask you a question or request your help, after which highlighting them will give you the chance to choose a response. Red Dead Redemption 2 is primarily a story about nature. PC is the best place to play last year’s best game. Yet how to reconcile that reputation with Red Dead Redemption 2? The world of Red Dead Redemption 2 is expansive and engrossing, even while—and often because—the process of interacting with it can be frustrating and inconsistent. Red Dead Redemption 2 biedt fijne gameplay met veel cowboy-actie, een werkelijk adembenemend mooie spelwereld met prachtige lichteffecten en beelden die fotorealisme soms behoorlijk goed benaderen. Compare this Wild West epic to GTA 3’s blocky Liberty City and its cast of fugly thugs you probably kneecapped on a tiny TV 17 years ago, and the evolution is astounding.

The question I’m ultimately trying to answer here is not so much ‘should you play Red Dead Redemption II?’ because I can say now, having played it for over 100 hours last year, that I absolutely think you should – it’s the most accomplished and well-crafted open-world game since The Witcher III.

Now let's never speak of the serpent slurping incident again. Thanks to the first Red Dead, we already know that he fails. Het verloop van het verhaal is enerverend en staat bol van de memorabele momenten, met richting het einde van de game nog een verrassende plotwending. This time, they’ll find their peaceful paradise and settle down. Once I randomly struck up a conversation with a disabled Civil War vet who said he remembered me from the last time we talked, which led to an extended, apparently unique conversation concerning Arthur’s life and feelings about what was currently happening in the story. Engrossing, unbelievably detailed world; well-written script full of carefully considered characters; technically astonishing audio-visual production; brilliant acting; very good horses. The “secret” part of that open secret evaporated somewhat over the past week, as a controversial comment by Rockstar co-founder and Red Dead Redemption 2 writer Dan Houser set off a cascade of revelations about work conditions at the notoriously secretive company. Again we take control of a steely-eyed gunslinger in a wide-open, abstracted version of the American West. Couple this with extensive wardrobe options, which let you tweak everything from your antihero’s shirts and vests, to even the spurs on his boots, and few open-worlds give you this much agency over your character. As such, RDR2 is a game of big themes and even bigger ideas. You understand, don’t you? Let’s start with foliage. You are Arthur Morgan, the low drawling, pistol-spinning right-hand-man of gang leader Dutch Van der Linde.

It has no heroes, only flawed men and women fighting viciously to survive in a world that seems destined to destroy them. We even know how he dies—not in a blaze of noble glory, but alone and cold, with no one left to stand by him. In de intro van deze video hebben we het per ongeluk over 'het najaar van 2019'... we leven nog steeds in 2018, natuurlijk. The game is saying that progress is a cancer and that humanity poisons all that it touches, but it was forged at the apex of human progress. Animation production coordinators.

I enjoyed your creative narrative prose over the the technical trappings of FPS and other “data.”. Were Red Dead Redemption 2 loaded with cheap satire and eye-rolling commentary, that approach would come across as a frustrating bit of ass-covering. In a cute nod to CJ from GTA: San Andreas, the outlaw also loses or gains weight if he eats too little or too much – don’t worry, the results are less cartoonishly exaggerated than shoving Clucking Bell bucket meals down Carl's throat. I began to see fewer buildings, and more trees. Niet alleen Arthurs positie in de bende, maar ook de relaties die je als speler opbouwt met de diverse leden groeit en verandert gaandeweg.

It wants you to simply be in its world, and to feel like a part of it.
