Masterpiece in man y ways but not all..
19 November 2018
Yes indeed there is much of RDR2 that's an iconic masterpiece in tech and in storytelling, but there are plenty of gameplay frustrations that are unforgivable in a AAA 2018 title.
Character control is janky and imprecise, the cover system is inconsistent - leading you to end up standing ON cover in the line of fire rather than crouching behind it, the gunplay is like trying to wrestle with a live snake, and the autosave checkpoints can be up to 40 minutes gameplay back.
Some real controller-snapping stuff here that most other titles perform well. There's absolutely no way this is a 10/10 unfortunately.
