I’ve never concerned myself with reviews, I just watch gameplay videos and if I like the look of them, buy them.
Video games are of course completely subjective, so to argue over which game is the best is a futile subject. I enjoyed Horizon but that was about it.
With regards to the controls of RDR2, they are, as are all Rockstar games, very simple to master.
I loved the first RDR but have been positively un-hyped about this one. 3 hours in though and I’m loving it. I highly recommend it to any who are on the fence.
