Red Dead Redemption 2 is a open world game , so there are lots of things you can do outside the main story , for example , you can find random events on the road like helping someone with his horse , a challenge , etc . There is also the ability to chose what are you going to do , sadly this won't have any effects on the ending but is a cool way of shaping the character in the way you like.
With Red Dead Redemption 2 Rockstar games crated a new way of Fast Travel , by pressing a button you will enter in a cinema mode in which the horse fallows the rode to the destination. You can customize your character and horse , you have to clean / change your clothes , there are special clothes for winter/summer.
The horse has lots of things added , he can die , you can sell it and buy another one , you can name it , you have to give him food from time to time , and similar with most games you can whistle and he will come to you. They also added the possibility of hunting and fishing , for money or food , you also need to make sure what weapon do you use to hunt the animal , this influences the price of the pelt. You can transport peoples/ dead animals on the back of the horse.
My opinion about the game and should you buy the game?
In my opinion the game is just to worth it , Rockstar Games worked a lot in doing this game , and you can see in the gameplay and story , the story is very well written and the gameplay is just so large and complex that even if you don't want to make the main quest you have someting to do . There are many random events and side quest , there is also the fishing the hunting witch in my opinion can make a game on its own. The game has around 50 hours only with the main story , you can easily pass over 100 hours with some side quests and some hunting.
Overall the game is really the best from 2018 , as far as i know i don't think that i going to be a better game this year , i hope you enjoyed my article.
