Released just two weeks ago, Red Dead Redemption 2 is already on its way to becoming the best-selling game of the year with nearly 17 million copies already sent to stores around the world. A real tidal wave that is not surprising considering the excitement surrounding each release of a Rockstar title, and the cult dedicated to John Marston’s adventures. It must be said that eight years of withdrawal is a long time, and it’s high time that Rockstar gave us a new ration of far west, of which they have the secret.
Two weeks was also the time it took us to get an opinion on Rockstar’s latest production. An ambitious, massive, rich, gripping title, but also unbalanced, heavy, and annoying when he starts. So yes, we took our time. Time to see everything he had in his stomach, to dissect the impressions he left us with a rested head, so as not to judge him, for good or for bad, in the heat of the action. And believe it or not, it wasn’t easy because Red Dead Redemption 2 made us see all kinds of things, for better or for worse. So, let’s stop talking and let’s get this show on the road.
If we find them in such a dangerous situation at the beginning of the game, it is because of a robbery that went wrong. A dark affair that pushed them to leave the town of Blackwater without turning around, and that will leave much deeper after-effects than each of the protagonists seems. Without revealing too much about the story, because it is what makes Rockstar productions so special, know that we will follow the tribulations of this band as they wander. Hunted by the Pinkerton, a detective agency determined to eliminate the threat of “free thinkers” like Dutch and his own, harassed by rival gangs, our band of cheerful lurons will move from Charybdis to Scylla, towards a future they hope will be better.
