Can Red Dead Redemption 2 Reach The Heights Of The First?
Many people will tell you that the greatest game that Rockstar has made is Red Dead Redemption. It is an absolute masterpiece. Honestly, it is so good, you have to actually sit and really think hard about anything that is wrong with it! Amazing story, great presentation, incredible voice acting, and gameplay that mixes exploration, shooting and just a whole lot of fun. It is one of the best games of its generation and it is pretty crazy Rockstar have the guts to try and top it.
So far we have only had a very short teaser trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, but it was enough to get us all very excited. Well, obviously the game is going to be set in the old west. But what ties will it have to the first game? The Grand Theft Auto series of games come and go with very little to do with each other (well apart from the expansions) so it is not to be unexpected that despite the old west setting, Red Dead Redemption will not have anything to do with the first game.
At the same time, the original Red Dead Redemption is set long after John Marston has tried to change his ways so maybe, Red Dead Redemption 2 could be some kind of prequel of John Marston when he was part of his notorious gang that he was hunting down in the first game?
No matter what, expectations are sky high for Red Dead Redemption 2 and you will be hard pressed to find a single gamer who thinks that Rockstar is not up to the challenge of making the sequel even better.
