Red Dead Redemption 2
Back in the saddle
Ben’s Pick! “I’m not going to shoot anyone. I’m just going to ride around looking at all the gorgeous views.”
Our anticipation for this sequel began the instant we finished its predecessor, so we’ve been waiting, let’s see now, around 2427 days. Not that we’ve been counting or anything. But could this be the difficult second game? Can Rockstar really improve on what was already a near-perfect experience and richly realised Wild West? Absolutely it can. We’ve seen the developer continue to break the mould, over-deliver, and push its juggernaut GTA series forward with every new instalment, so there’s no reason to believe it can’t work the same magic here. We may only have seen a single trailer, but this already has to considered as an early contender for 2017 game of the yeehaw.
