Fantasies lay in the corridors of imagination. Video games aren’t based on real life but they take you to another world, where you unleash the beast inside you, live the life you always wanted, and drive the passion that you see in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Rockstar has been pulling marvel after marvel. They have left nothing, literally nothing when it comes to open world action adventure. From the modernities of the 21st century in GTA 5 to the end of 18th century in Red Dead Redemption 2, the game has been well worth the wait. Yes, Rockstar, with Red Dead Redemption 2, has nailed it yet again. Another story of outlaws, another gang of looters, another journey to the forbidden aisles and another anti-hero drama has become a favorite among serious gamers.
The journey starts with the chills of black water where winter is harsh and blizzard is covering up the entire region, food is scarce, and survival depends on killing or hunting. Our gang Van De Linge is surviving on minimal supplies and is on a verge of sneaking past the law after a ferry heist.
The story is prequel to the last outing of Red Dead Redemption and is much intense.
Arthur Morgan and John Marston are the core members of the gang and they are traveling to new embankments with the gang. The story is prequel to the last outing of Red Dead Redemption and is much intense.
In this release, the Era of 18th century is displayed to make the story as real as it could possibly get for the players. From the honking of the steam engine to the depth of the ocean, the players are living it. We brew, we hunt, we kill, we set up camps, we tag along with people in the suburbans, hence everything one man living in wilderness would do to survive. Our fashion goes back to those dates.

What developers have more focused upon, in this particular outing, is the impact of bonding. We rely on a horse to get us from one point to another, therefore have to take care of the horse like we take care of ourselves. More focus on the horse, stronger the bond. A better bond with the horse helps in riding and traveling fast. Another binding aspect is sharing. Whatever we earn, we share it with the gang so it not only increases mutual respect and fairness but also helps in making the gang stable since they require funds to sustain themselves after travel.
We can play the game with different attitudes i.e. use dirty tactics or clean. The way we proceed, it changes the outcomes for us. So it’s left to the players to decide if they want to be among the good outlaws or the real outlaws which are constantly chased and hunted by the bounty hunters and have enemies in every second town they visit. More ruthless decisions makes the game more enthralling and there is too much to fight for!
This game is a masterpiece, it raises the standards once more. The developers have created a fabulous environment. Day and night cycle is amazingly portrayed. With every passing hour the change in weather and aroma around us makes it more interesting. When we skin animals after hunting we can actually see the details. We gather herbs to survive an we travel towns to buy stuff. We find rare species of animals so we can sell their hides to get rich. We are a scavenger, we are a hunter and we are a shooter. Gang missions is the main aspect. Killing and robbing is the crux of the game which cannot be neglected.
It is very well crafted open world outlaw adventure game. A jam packed ride with full of options and decisions powered by a balanced script. Nothing can describe this other than ”’sublime’.
