Red Dead Redemption 2 review

RDR2 is such a ride, it is filled with a lot of feelings from happiness to enraged revenge. I think that to this point there’s no such experience as Red Dead Redemption 2, is as raw and slow as the developers wanted it to be, for me it was for the best but sometimes it felt a little tiresome or repetitive, then again is so masterfully crafted that even that seems on purpose. More often than not, also, it seemed to me more like a MMO game than a single placer AAA game, the thing is massive and almost every chapter feels like a AAA game on itself. Everything in this game begs to be praised, the writing (which is magnificent), the music, the animation, sound, even the Graphic design of labels of food, billboards is Amazing.

I’m not sure if I’m a big fan of westerns but I sure like a lot of them, and similar to the last entry, this game has a lot of references, even tho in my opinión it seemed to me that they took a lot of inspiration from Tarantino’s D’jango Unchained and Hateful Eight in a very good way. There’s a lot of things and themes they managed to discuss here, current themes that can easily be applied in the game’s exaggerated and romanticized World and they did it great.

As for its main character, I fell in love with Arthur from start, it has the perfect balance of cold killer and sweet guy, and as outrageous that sounds it Works flawlessly, Arthur is now easily one of my top 5 characters in gaming. Not everything in this game is perfect, there are some minor technical issues that can be sometimes frustrating but never a big deal, also there's a lot of "walking" both at feet and on horse so if that's a problem to you, maybe you can skip this game, but it also encourages you to explore and find new things at every corner, similar to Breath of the Wild. 

I think that this game is not for everyone, I think I can compare to a Nolan movie, sure is a blockbuster Hollywood movie but is well done and has a lot to say that can separate itself from the rest. I love how the characters made me feel angry, happy and sad, and those moments where I totally transformed into a gunslinger will stay with me for the years to come.

Rockstar has undoubtedly created a piece of art. The story is long and a bit slow in the beginning, but tastes like a mature wine with an aftertaste of your action's consequences. It looks much more like a classic book than a movie.

Story: remarkable with a lot of details
Soundtrack: memorable
Gameplay: fun with a lot of shooting
Graphics: awe-inspiring

Very good game. Definitely a long haul game but the quality of detail and engaging world is top tier. Where this game really shines though is it’s protagonist. One of the best written and real characters we’ve ever seen in a game hands down.
