In addition to yesterday’s debut of Official Trailer #3 for Red Dead Redemption 2, select outlets around the world published their first look features after seeing the game. Read on for a roundup of what they had to say and check out each site for full previews and exclusive screenshots.
“Well get ready to have your socks knocked off – RDR2 is graphically majestic. The sceneries are breath-taking, the panoramas and the whole ambience is very impressive. It’s rich, it’s dense and it’s chock full of details… The attention to detail is everywhere and plentiful, RDR2 offers a sheer volume of detail never seen before with a degree of polish that only Rockstar knows how to do. Mind blowing.” – Jeuxactu
"After finally seeing Red Dead Redemption 2 in action for the first time, it’s clear that the next great Western is not a film. It’s Red Dead Redemption 2… The Old West comes alive in Red Dead Redemption 2 not solely through its environment, but through the characters the player interacts with; from brief encounters with travelers on the road, to Arthur’s weather-beaten gang compatriots, to the lawmen and last remaining rival gangs pursuing the gang who loom large over the proceedings. This is a world as beautiful as it is violent and unforgiving and Arthur is a product of it as much as the folk he encounters." – Telegraph
