A Full Review
I played red dead redemption 1 like. . . five years after release? My parents had beat it 100% and the only weapons I was aloud to use were the lasso and knife. all i could do was ride around helping people. And it was GREAT.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is so much more. I spent an insane amount of time just riding around. The graphics are so beautiful, that sometimes I just look at the scenery. And you can take pictures. I started quests like 10 hours in the game and like 20 hours in I got an Arabian. (The best breed of horse) It felt like such an accomplishment!
All the quests I've done are appropriate, if you're alright with killing people of course. There are 2 quests that you might think are a little to much for your kid though.
You take some girls to a town called Valentine because they are bored. One girl is in the hotel and you walk in a room to find a guy standing over her. She's not nude or anything, outside the hotel I'm pretty sure she tells you he hit her? Don't quite remember.
2. At the end of this quest, "We loved once and true" a boy tries to kill himself. I don't know how gruesome it is, because my parents did it for me, but you try to shoot the gun out of his hand. If you fail... well...
The game really encourages you to be good. It's a lot of management, but, say, you kill someone. you will lose honour, and even if you pay the bounty, people will treat you harshly in the street, saying stuff like, "We don't need you to cause any more trouble."
Wearing bandanna's in town or having your gun out causes people to be uneasy.
Sorry this was so long! Please let your child do the quests as they're SO important to the story! oh and if YOU played rdr1 and didn't let your kids, explain what happens so rdr2 makes more sense. John and Jack Marston are in the game. And it explains how John got his scars.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE play this game! It's beautiful and detailed and just so much fun! ugh. Anyway, bye
(You can get drunk in the game. Takes A LOT of boos though. one quest he does get drunk, but it's hilarious, he starts hallucinating his friend everywhere. F word is mentioned, Sh** word more often. but for good reason. Falling off a cliff and your horse has died? Yep you'll hear a Sh**)
