How did the world media evaluate “Red Dead Redemption 2”? Talk about artistic perfection from a “now” perspective!
It’s been two and a half months since the shock was released … I feel that it’s time to talk about ” Red Dead Redemption 2 ” (hereinafter ” RDR2 “) as a whole. Many players will have cleared the story mode of the main game, and “ Red Dead Online ” is also a beta version (as of January 2019), but based on the current situation that it has been released safely, “ RDR2” What is the ultimate open-world that Rockstar Games has pursued? The 2018 Game of the Year acquisition is also a masterpiece that is within range, but in this article, it is called “RDR2” with points that the author paid attention to, which is not mentioned much in the media reviews. I would like to try to explain the video game, which has a high degree of artistic perfection.
A storm of rave reviews from various media
“RDR2” has been highly acclaimed for its magnificent world view, beautiful graphics, extraordinary attention to detail, and the game design that combines all of them.
“PLAYSTATION 4 and XBOX ONE’s most highly rated game in history”
“Best Masterpiece” (IGN score 10/10)
“Best Open World Game” (Weekly Famitsu 39/40)
In Japan, which has a different view of history, the world of western drama is not familiar, but from the perspective of Europe and the United States, the world and drama depicted in “RDR2” are real 100 years ago. There was the law, common sense, and consciousness of that era, and it was dominated by ethics that were very different from the present, and you may come across.
“RDR2″ is often compared to the Rockstar Games signboard title ” Grand Theft Auto ” (hereinafter ” GTA “) series, but the only thing that is similar is the open-world game design. I can’t think that what I’m aiming for is the exact opposite.
Yes, “RDR2” has a serious story to the fullest. The “GTA” series is ironic to modern American society and has a high degree of gag overall, including the story. Of course, there is a serious flaw, but the craziness that makes me laugh somewhere is emphasized. Especially, I feel that ” GTAV ” was remarkable.
A large gathering of strange people-encounters with “strangers”
However, even if it is too serious, it should not make you feel heavy. It is true that rock star-style gag is firmly studded in the heavy story.
Mad Scientists’ Ambition (models are Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison, who existed at the same time), weird beast circus troupe and sideshow entertainer, or “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ” deep blue murderer family and mystery Although not directly related to the main mission, such as serial killers, a recluse living in abandoned villages, and villagers who believe in myths, this world of strange people is full of madness and laughter. I often admire that Arthur is keeping his sanity. Many eccentric weirdos appeared in the previous work, but this time the craziness has been greatly upgraded.
The general magazine’s major media ” NEWSWEEK ” describes “RDR2” as “an order of magnitude more beautiful”, but its beauty stands out because of its dingy side. After confronting strange people and winning the battle, Arthur (the author) climbs a small hill alone, smokes high-quality cigarette smoke, and regrets his actions. The beauty of the condor and the setting sun gliding under its eyes is certainly hard to describe.
