Basically, if you’re a completist and you didn’t finish everything in Arthur’s story, you’ll have to start over. And if you thought it was a slog the first time, just wait until you have to do it again. Red Dead Redemption 2 does a lot of things right. Say what you will about the length of the story, but it’s truly moving and does a great job as a prequel, setting up the events of 2010’s Red Dead Redemption. You also have to credit the attention to detail in every little thing the game shows off, living or not. It takes video game realism to another level, and there’s a good chance you’ll never see another game hit this bar until Rockstar makes some sort of follow-up. But goodness gracious, are Red Dead 2’s controls godawful or what? Whether you’re playing as Arthur Morgan or John Marston, it doesn’t matter %u2014 they both move like they have cinder blocks strapped to their feet.
