Just the story mode alone is massive and truly incredible. Great writing and storytelling will have you immersed on a roller-coaster of adrenaline throughout the entire game.
This game is by far the best-looking game I have ever played in my life. From the deep shadows to looking over the world on top of a mountain, there is a chance you will forget you are playing a video game. The animals look as if they came straight out of a national geographic episode. Even when they attack you, the mechanics used are just so beautiful. With over 200 different species of animals, hunting is now better than ever. Updated shooting mechanics makes hunting feel surreal and whole. Getting a perfect heart shot with a bow and arrow will put the animal down and yield a perfect pelt. Use a high caliber rifle and shoot poor, the animal run far where you must track it down and on top of that, you’ll damage the pelt. With all the animals there are 16 different legendary animals you can hunt. Collect their parts and you can take them to the trapper for special rewards and outfits.
Horseback riding in Red Dead Redemption 2 is simply amazing. The movement of the horse looks super realistic it’s almost as if you were just watching a video of an actual horse. There are 19 breeds of horses in Red Dead 2. Depending on the one you get, some are built for speed others are stronger but slow but for every horse you must take care of it. If you over feed it, it will become fat and slow. Starve it, it become fast but weak. This applies to yourself as well. You can choose to buy your food at the store or you can hunt it and cook it over an open fire at a camp you made in the forest. There is also a ranking system of good or bad. You can choose to be whatever you want. As you can see there is a lot of things you can do in this game. If you are looking for that open world game to be played however you like Read Dead Redemption would be the best choice possible.
