Red Dead Redemption 2
In 2010, the creators of Grand Theft Auto released a new open-world experience for gamers to enjoy called Red Dead Redemption. Starring the rooting, tooting cowboy John Marston, this action title put players in the violent world of the Wild West. 8 years later, Rockstar Games have returned to the Wild West for another adventure, with this one taking place 12 years before the first Red Dead Redemption. In Red Dead Redemption II, players will live the life of an outlaw on the run, dodging police, bandits, and other curious characters. With a huge map packed with missions and activities, you'll be entertained for dozens of hours in this tale of the turn of the century.
Main Game Features
- Massive open world with tons of shops, activities, and characters
- Over 100 unique missions
- Extensive hunting, fishing, and crafting systems
Red Dead Redemption II takes place in 1899 and focuses on the Van der Linde gang, a group of outlaws who are forced to turn tail and run when a heist goes sour. Playing as Arthur Morgan, the right-hand man of the gang's leader, you'll need to gain favor with local townsfolk while planning your next heist. However, as old age rears its head and Arthur's morals are tested, he starts to doubt his place in the world of blood-thirsty criminals. Like other adventures made by Rockstar Games, Red Dead Redemption II has a remarkably effective and emotional story. The lengthy main story path will take players well over 50 hours to complete, taking them on a memorable journey across the developing United States. As a mercenary and robber Arthur Morgan constantly puts his skills to use, often helping people in need while occasionally robbing the as well. Over the course of your adventure, you'll meet dozens of unique characters with riveting stories and problems. Be careful who you get attached too though, as Red Dead Redemption II is often brutal and unforgiving, with characters often dying off as soon as you begin to like them.
Red Dead Redemption II plays very similarly to both the original Red Dead Redemption as well as Grand Theft Auto IV. After a handful of introductory missions, players are introduced to the open map of the Wild West and set loose. Riding on your trusty horse companion, you'll travel to nearby towns and outposts, picking up missions and participating in activities. Although the game contains over 100 missions, they are all incredibly unique, tasking players with robbing banks, eliminating enemies, and even drinking with their friends. Apart from the plethora of missions available, players can also undertake a slew of side-activities and distractions, ranging from hunting and fishing to playing horseshoes and poker. It's great fun to take a break from shooting bad guys and sit down for a card game every now and then. There's a tangible sense of realism to every gameplay mechanic as well, providing an immersive quality that is unmatched by other games in the genre. Players must clean their weapons and horse, upgrade the gang's camp, maintain hunger and thirst meters, and more. This can make the game a bit overwhelming and challenging in the beginning, but before long, these seemingly complicated systems will become second nature.
You can always bet on Rockstar Games to deliver an exciting, immersive, and enjoyable open-world game to lose yourself in. Red Dead Redemption II is no exception in that case, providing a seemingly endless supply of entertaining gameplay, missions, and unlockable content. Even once you've finished the epic and emotion main story, you'll likely still have a ton of missions and activities to pursue. The inclusion of a standalone online multiplayer mode is also awesome, allowing you to group up with your friends and take on the Wild West together. Regardless of how you play it, Red Dead Redemption II is one of the most impressive and engrossing open-world games of all time.
