Red Dead Redemption 2 review
Exceptional

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the greatest video game ever made. I’ve never been more immersed in a game than in this wonderful western world.  The story was fantastic. Arthur Morgan is the best character a video game has ever had. The visuals of this game were spectacular (minus a few character models that weren’t bad, but were not great). The sound is great. The level of detail in this game has never been done before, whatever game is second place isn’t close.

Some people complained about the controls or feel for the game. I did not. The game makes you take deliberate actions but I found my Arthur Morgan was a badass gunslinger who didn’t have difficulty completing his tasks. Some people complained that this games pacing (specifically the opening) is too slow. I did not. I think the slow beginning forces you to pay attention to the incredible detail this game has to offer, and it does it in a way where you just think you are discovering things on your own.

This game took ~45 hours to complete and usually I am fatigued at that point and just pushing towards the finish line. I wasn’t fatigued. This game kept me fully engaged and entertained for that long, and it barely has any rpg mechanics. I wasn’t grinding for the next perk or upgrade or piece of equipment that makes my character better and gives me a sense of accomplishment. I was buying Arthur a sweet jacket and trimming his beard. I loved every minute of it. I don’t know how they pulled that off.

Final Score: A++

The story is a masterclass in character development, with a rich cast of characters that are all well-written and expertly voice-acted. The game's themes of loyalty, betrayal, and morality are explored in a nuanced and thought-provoking way that will leave players thinking long after the credits roll. The game's mechanics are also top-notch, with smooth and intuitive controls that make everything from horseback riding to gunfights feel satisfying and realistic. The online multiplayer mode adds even more replayability, with various activities and challenges to keep players coming back for more. Overall, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece of a game that is well worth the investment of time and money. Its immersive world, gripping story, and expertly crafted gameplay make it a must-play for any fan of Westerns or open-world adventure games.
