“RDR2 is a game of two distinct halves: the cinematic story you have little control over, and the sandbox where you rob trains and then spend your haul on hot baths and nice hats, because you’re a gentleman thief, dammit. These two sides are constantly butting together. All the while the game’s story of spiralling despair and tension is working hard to sell you on how dire your situation is, it has to contend with the fact that you can piss off and go herb collecting for five hours.”
Despite the grandiose cowboy narrative coming considerably at odds with the slower-paced sandbox exploration, he sums all that up with calling it the “definitive version of the definitive Rockstar game.”
