Red Dead Redemption 2 Knows All The Formulas To A Perfect Review
Rockstar’s latest game Red Dead Redemption 2 is breaking the internet as favorable reviews are pouring in, ahead of its release. Based on 72 reviews, Red Dead Redemption 2 holds a 97 on Metacritic for its PS4 version. Its Xbox One version; however, is an additional point up with a 98 rating. Rockstars previous games GTA 4 holds a record-breaking review rating of 97. And with the lifting of the review embargo, Red Dead Redemption 2 has dethroned GTA 4, ending its reign of terror.
A Record-Breaking Review
The earlier version of this game held a 95 review rating. But it looks like that Rockstar has really upped the game with the sequel of its already lucrative branding. The PS4 version outperforms GTA 3 and GTA 5 in the rating game, falling short only to GTA 4. While the Xbox One version, although being the same game, has topped GTA 4 ‘s record as well. The reviews also are strongly indicative of the fact that these ratings are to stay.
The Narrative Style Of Red Dead Redemption 2
The first catalyst in the making of this landmark game is certainly its lifelike, wieldy, long, West-World narrative. The fulfilling story length of this game has set a benchmark for other games, and critics are particularly awed by the intriguing twists and turns in the story. There are side-tracks and main chapters, both of which are thoroughly and sophisticatedly defined. Kudos to the team of 2000+ artists who have worked earnestly to churn out these exhilarating individual stories on a lawless land.
It is a huckleberry for the best single-player gaming experience. The challenging nature of this masterpiece is truthful. The visuals truly justify the magnum file size, and all the mechanics and control features blend well to give an exuberant feel of semi-realism. There is also a single difficulty level to keep all the players, quite fairly, on the same page. But, it will only be a matter of time before gaming enthusiasts work out cheats and change this.
Learning From Past Experiences
Red Dead Redemption 2 is the true embodiment a gaming ambition. Rockstar is quite aware of the expectations its entails and it satisfyingly meets the expectations associated with it. There have been a lot of technological developments since last Red Dead. And apart from this, Rockstar has also learned a lot from the Grand Theft Auto V under its belt. The game surpasses the genius of all previous ones with its less-gamey more-explorey tone. And thankfully, it does not meander away from a rich, competitive gaming experience while narrating its fable.
