Video Games > Red Dead Redemption 2 > First Thoughts

08/12/2019 18:10

I was a massive fan of Red Dead Redemption and waited patiently for its PC release, alas it never came. After many years it went into the cupboard with my Xbox 360 never to be played again, despite the many happy hours I spent trotting around the dessert and reeking havoc in the town of Armadillo.
Needless to say I was very happy to hear Red Dead 2 would be coming to PC, and my sister and brother in law kindly bought it for me last night as a birthday/Christmas gift.
My first impressions of the game are very good. The Hateful Eight-esque opening didn’t capture my imagination in the same way Red Dead (1s) train journey across the desert did, but I was more than happy to jump into my role in a gang desperately pushing though a blizzard to escape (the law?).
The opening missions before it drops you into free roam were quite long, around half an hour to 45 minutes, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, however if I were to create new saves to mess around on I feel it may be a bit frustrating to have to get though that long opening gameplay before I can cause trouble if there is no way to skip it.
I am very happy to see more survival elements in this game and I am sure it will make riding around the map trying to make some money and explore every nook and cranny all the more interesting. I cannot speak for the story yet, however I have liked what I have seen so far. The game also looks amazing and the attention to detail is very cool. Rockstar have consistently been releasing amazing games since GTA 4 and I am sure this will be no exception.

On a side note, every time I jump into a game like this and have to kill wolves a little piece of my heart breaks. They always look far too much like my dog Freki.
