Red Dead Redemption 2 is the prequel to the highly successful Red Dead Redemption developed by Rockstar. ¨RDR2,¨ which has been anticipated for 8 years, has lived up to all the hype accredited to it and so far has outshined most games that have been released in the same month or even those before it. The game introduces new characters as well as bringing back old ones which add familiarity to the game if the customer played the first one and as well as fresh experience.

First off the story of the game is incredibly captivating. It doesn’t get boring and can go from lazily riding a horse through the wilderness to having shootouts with rival gangs in populated towns. The missions all feel unique and are artfully made having the player riding through expanses of forests to mountains seamlessly. If the customer does not want to play the story edition, there are plenty of side missions and activities to do that will provide extra experience points and cash.

The game also has a wide variety of animals for the player to discover and add to the player’s compendium. The player can hunt these animals in the game and use them to upgrade the camp or sell them for cash or use them to cook food. There are also a considerable amount of weapons and gadgets to aid the player as they explore the games immense map.

One of the game’s key features is the level of customization within it. Players can change just about everything. Such as changing the way the horse looks by changing the color of its hair or the way its tail look. Everything can be left up to the player and there are almost a thousand different possibilities.

One of the more annoying parts about RDR2 is that when the player is wanted by the law you can’t do missions. That is understandable, however, it takes a foolish amount of time to unlock again. The multiplayer has been out for quite a bit, but still remains unfinished and mostly unpolished. So far all seems well with the game as it has very few glitches and bugs. Overall the game is amazing and it lives up to its predecessor.

I rate it 4.5 maroons out of 5.
