Rockstar Games never seizes to amaze us. After the release of the amazing Grand Theft Auto 5 and Red Dead Redemption, Rockstar is back, and they’ve come back stronger than ever with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2.

The Wild West has never felt more alive with one of the largest maps they’ve ever made. There’s plenty to explore, from the small desert towns and saloons, to large mountains covered in snow. Not once will you find yourself bored traveling through the beautiful landscapes in the game.

Taking place in 1899 in the Western United States, players take the role of outlaw Arthur Morgan. Arthur is a member of the Van der Linde Gang, a group of outlaws who are trying to survive from government forces, and other rival gangs.

The game isn’t short either. Clocking in about 60 hours of story missions and side missions, there’s more than enough for you to do. And the story is nothing short of amazing. It finds a way to keep you hooked. And the cinematic cut-scenes only add to it.

The game play is exactly what you’d expect from a Rockstar game. It has plenty of gunfights, stealing, and driving (This time it’s horses and carriages). It feels very smooth, and like GTA 5, you have the option to switch between first and third person point of view. Both perspectives add to the game, and you don’t feel like you’re missing out on something in either point of view.

The game is available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece, and well deserving of Game of The Year. The game from start to finish is amazing, and seems to do almost nothing wrong. It’s a slick, beautiful game that will keep you invested the entire time. This game is well deserving of a 5 out of 5 stars.
