I’m halfway through Chapter 4.

The world is insanely large, immersive, and detailed.

I’m having a lot of fun but I think the first game is better for a lot of reasons. If I wasn’t sinking crazy hours into this game I would say I’m disappointed.

I’m hoping it finishes strong. And there’s lots of story-based DLC.

Think few of systems are clunky enough but willing to stick with it. Can’t get to grips with cores at all. Hunting very in depth. Think a lot of it is geared to teaching you systems for to play online. Plays like a tentative RPG than a traditional 50/60 hour single player. Definitely steers you away from main story to just living in the world.
Enjoying it so far, still only on chap 2.

I have 2-3 more missions.

My criticism doesn’t matter because this game will make more money than god but the story is mess, the controls are clunky, and the connection between its “new” superficial gameplay features and narrative is tenuous at best.

I give it high marks for graphics, detail, art direction, shooting mechanics, hunting, and first person mode.

The rest is deeply flawed.

It sticks the landing though.

Beat the game today. Have to agree with this 100%.

Still a fantastic game, one of my favs, but clunky controls due mostly to the elaborate animation of the main character becomes tedious after a while.

Nah, I did a good amount of exploring, fucking about, and all that.

It's just RDR on steroids and I was expecting something a little more fresh.

Same.

I like it a lot.

I would've:

Hidden Text:

Re-worked Chapters 1 and 2.

The beginning is my biggest gripe.

And removed/seriously changed Chapter 5. Garbage. Even if I "get it" in terms of the story.

My biggest complaint re: the controls is the bindings of L2/R2. I accidentally shot my gun a couple times.

It's also a pain to change weapons and ammo. The weapon wheel is showing it's age and limitations.

It's crazy to think RDR was 8 years ago. And SA is 14. O_O

Re: The Video Game Console Thread

Considering buying a PS4 after over a decade since the last time I bought a console. The reason?
Ace Combat 7. The PS2 trilogy is among the best games I've ever played (with Il-2 Sturmovik, Hearts of Iron IV and the STALKER trilogy) and I couldn't miss that, especially since I could get my hands on Valkyria Chronicles 4 as well. Plus, some other titles I'm interested in have been announced for the platform, such as Metro Exodus.
Of course, the two last games have been announced on PC as well, but my dinosaur is unlikely to run them, and I don't see myself building a static gaming PC or sinking money into a gaming laptop, so PS4 it is.

I'll give RDR2 a try if I can play it at a riend's house or something like this, because I'm not that much into Wild West stuff and prefer not throwing money away for a game I'm not sure to like.
