I think the game is fun.
Having a blast.
I enjoy the controls nice and weighty. I really enjoy the camera shake when things get fast and heavy. The shooting is very satisfying. I need more things to shoot.
The survival mechanics are interesting, I can’t really fault it, it’s not overly simple and it’s not super complex. You can live on crackers and cigarettes, Kentucky bourbon if you fancy. I am underweight.
I really enjoy the horse and riding around. I enjoy the environment the aloneness in some areas, it’s nice to just ride and chill. I think this game takes a different mind set than is popular in other fast past shooting games. I wouldn’t call this a shooter. I see why folks say the buttons are unresponsive or clunky or slow. Actually actions can be strung together, you can tell the character to do one things while it is still doing another for seamless transaction like a fighting game. I honestly think people are taking the game too fast like a Nathan Drake game or something. I still haven’t really fast traveled.
Yeah the strangers and freaks repeat,the same guy is trying to shoe his horse even after his horse knocks him in his head, it’s still a game after all.
I dunno if my expectations were too high, I felt hyped like everyone else. I got a slow paced (even though everyone is always rushing me in missions) methodical game that takes a little planning and micromanaging to get safely from one place to another. The adventure is the trip.
For me I think this game is legend, I will be playing this multiple play throughs and for years to come just like MGS Phantom Pain.
The music is very fitting. I enjoy hunting in this game more than any other-and I don’t like hunting in games. The side missions are really enjoyable. Money has a point in the game. It takes a while to get use to all the small games mechanics buttons and timing for everything. You mess up if you get flustered or move too fast. Trying to feed yourself, while trying to do dead eye, while trying to stay in destructible cover with a flanking A.I. I bet alot of folks get over whelmed cause it’s alot. Took me a good while to get use to dead eye and I will still get wrecked on a quick draw if I ain’t careful.
The trick is being prepared and using those binoculars. I can’t over state how much I love the horses. I ain’t lose one yet. I love doing trick turns and going fast in crowds drifting. It feels good to pay off a bounty, it feels like paying bills in real life. There is a feeling of freedom that comes with it. It’s very restrictive which goes with the theme of the game. It really controls your behavior.
Oh and the guns. Augh, I ain’t even a gun lover. I don’t know anything about them. But these old school weapons make my day. It took me a long while to get use to how slow everything is in shooting. You have to make shots count.
I love the shootin, the riding, and while it is way too easy to be a good guy they have some really nice choices the player can choose for themselves that is not cut and dry.
