‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ Review

Not even 24 hours after its release, Red Dead Redemption 2 was being labeled the best game of the year, and trust me, it is. There are so many components that make this game so enjoyable.

First of all, the graphics are almost photorealistic. I was blown away when I began the first chapter of the game. There is something awe-inspiring in every storm, every sunset and every tree across the world of RDR 2.

Another component that makes RDR2 so great is the character development and the dialogue. From the beginning of the game, I felt attached to the main character, Arthur, and the attachment only grew more as I learned more about his past. Not only this, but Arthur’s relationships with others are developed well and established early on in the game. Each character feels like a real person.

I have always been a fan of open world games because there is always something for you to do, but I sometimes find after a while all the side missions get boring. I can’t say this with RDR 2. The side missions aren’t pointless and they develop not only Arthur as a character, but his relationships with other characters as well.

The events really tell a lot about the character’s relationships and personalities, and the cinematic approach during missions really brings the game full circle.

I can’t say anything bad about this game because it’s painstakingly beautiful in every aspect.
