The Red Dead Redemption 2 "Constructive Criticism" Thread

Recommended Posts

éX-Driver

My only real complaints are the lack of bloody guns. When I was promised 50 weapons, I didn’t expect 30 of them to be melee weapons with no difference beyond skins.

there’s 3 revolvers, 3 or so rifles, 4 or so repeaters, and 4 or so shotguns, and that’s it. I mean, yes. The Colt 1873 is basically all I’d use anyway, but the distinct lack of guns common to the era is an insult. No Sharps 1874? No Colt 1860? No Deringer? Ridiculous. Then there’s precisely ZERO muzzle loaders, in spite of them being still ridiculously common in the era. And that’s not even to mention the ‘rare’ guns from Redemption 1 that we lost like the LeMat and Evans carbine. Our only hope is post-launch DLC. But we shouldn’t have to wait for DLC to restore cut content that was in the first game. Those ‘X’s Cattleman’ and other assorted legendary guns just ain’t cutting it. I won’t be happy until I get my Sharps 1874.

 

as a side note: I find it stupid we can’t take the scope off the Remington Rolling Block. Those things are legendary for hunting big game, but not for having scopes. If I want to use iron sights, I should be allowed to. Makes the gun far more usable. Those classic Malcolm scopes are only useful at the exact range they’re designed to be used for.

Okay....

I just realized those OS terminator Bounty Hunters murdered my racebreed horse(Or something similar to that) and I was stuck with a Tennesse horse that wasn't the one I already maxed out

Went to replace my race horse.... and it's no longer even an option in the shop. WTF? That was ZERO dollars so I'm assuming it was one of the DLC horses

If I can't get another I'm going to get real annoyed. I liked the way it looked

This game technically and visually is some achievement, but now I’m a good few hours in I am going to list, for me, what I think are its faults

 

I’m finding the game clunky, fiddly to control, and not sure whether it wants to be a slow-paced RPG in the vein of Skyrim (but not deep enough) or an arcade action adventure like its predecessor.

 

John Marston was a more likeable protagonist. Arthur just sounds a bit retarded.

 

There are bugs and glitches galore from what I see. (One of the coat outfit renderings glitches flashes black as if not finished)

 

The core / stamina mechanic has become a real bore.

 

Walking in camp etc is reeeeaaally slow.

 

The "hold down" mechanic of the buttons to perform actions is annoying.

 

There is no video editor function for creating videos and images, which feels like a massive missed opportunity in a game like this. It is begging for it.

 

I dunno. It just feels too ambitious, and has definitely lost something from the first. I am finding it a bit of a chore to play. They have gone for this realism angle, but realism and micro-management of those aspects in video-games can end up being really tiresome. I'm having to stop and eat food because the character has no core strength, I'm having to feed the horse, have a bath, have a shave, sleep, pick up my hat after every fight, get weapons from the horse. The slightest infraction has me then having to raise money and travel to the post office just to pay off bounties.

 

I'm sure that some players are loving this aspect of it, but for me, who just wants to get on with it, it's all a bit too much.

I feel like something is missing, couldn't pin point it at first now I understand, the world feels empty like Skyrim Vanilla. 

 

Example, Skyrim was talked about & paraded (like RDR2) by Bethesda. Dynamic this, intergrated that.. But when you played it while graphically looked good the World felt empty. 

 

I'm getting the Same vibes from RDR2. Example, when Arthur is on a Horse in the fields or generally from most of time of traversing, the lack of Wildlife is there. 

 

In RDR1 You came across a random bunny running into the scrub you could choose to skin or it looked ambient as you road through, flutter of birds, random deer. In the RDR2 Leaked Gameplay it just seems dead, lifeless. The Game is visually stunning & the animations are on point, the atmosphere is just not there. 

 

Can't see any flock of birds, random critters or indication there's "life" like How in RDR1 you could.  Just not feeling it anymore, can't feel it. 

 

 

 

Leslie Benzies was to Rockstar what RARE was to Nintendo;  The essence. Now he is gone so is the atmosphere & the void is showing.

 

Shouldn't of got rid of Leslie Benzies R*. A house divided cannot stand & getting rid of Benzies is like shooting yourself in the Foot, or like destroying the foundation & then wondering why the house is falling. 

What are you talking about?!!

In my opinion, RDR 2 is full of life, most of the time I can't go from point A to B without running into a situation that I wasn't expecting at all. Hunting whatever I find along the way to provide for camp.

I dunno maybe we're just playing different games, cause in mine I'm having a blast.

I really don't have many complaints.  I even got used to performance drop in towns. But still I have 2 for now:

 

1. As other pointed out, lack of firearms is disappointing.  I didn't expect all 50 weapons to be firearms of course,  but to offer only 3 revolvers? There are so many guns that should have been in the game, from Remington 1875, Le Mat (centerfire version), over Colt Navy all the way to Derringer.  I was even hoping for some imported revolvers such as Bull Dog, Webley or Nagant. Not to mention lack of rifles/repeaters . Huge disappointment so far.

 

2. Wanted system. Why I can't defend myself without being chased and shoot at because of 10 dollar bounty? I am going to pay it but it is hard when half a city is chasing me just because 2 guys drew their pistols on me without any reason.  Only exception so far is Rhodes,  beautiful place. Already gunned down  4 guys in self defense and no issues.

Shame the company won't learn their lesson from f*ck'n their loyal players of their previous title but ya expected most wouldn't pass on it. I'll be watching from the side lines to see what happens.

Ill put a cowboy hat/boots on my GTA character though and stand on the unused horse track by the never opening abandoned Casino then easy way out for celebration!

The thing that caused me problems was accidentally drawing my revolver and shooting some innocent NPC when trying to interact normally.  Still don't know why that happens.  But then I've got run away, while killing some of the townfolk, and I end up with an increasing bounty.  Annoying.

Just got to the part where you buy a new horse (Yea taking it slow) and I had to laugh. 

 

Customising your horse? Really? Horse Santos Customs...

 

We all know what's gonna happen with Online...I mean I like it but the same thing is gonna happen with releasing new over priced Horses and customisations.

Maybe you pressed R2 instead of L2, it happened to me once.

I generally don't mind it but some of the options are weird.  I am not sure how historically correct is, but dreadlocks on a horse?

Haha. I didn't read into user's reviews because of potential spoilers hidden in there, but from what I read in another forum, it's mostly players who're complaining about no PC version. Deliberate and childish if true, I'd say.

Sorry to summon you but when you get the "Aim Weapon" promp you need to press it and not hold it then the LT/L2 command becomes Aim and the RT/R2 command becomes fire as normal. What you did was hold it even for a second too long and fired.

Yea, I had to laugh. I mean it is literally a Mod Shop for your horse. Cant wait to see what utterly stupid stuff they churn out.

This is why you have a long list of save slots. Before you go into a mission/encounter, always save a save save in a seperate save slot.

if you f*ck up, just reload the save save. 

Dumb question but how do I save in slots? The only way I’ve found to manually save is by sleeping and that doesn’t give me any options to pick slots.

If you go into the main menu, there's a 'Story' tab, and from there you can save your game manually at any time (although probably not during a mission).

Don't interact or stay near people with your mask on.

And don't stay near someone who told you to leave.

The latter kind of sucks, since he still drew his weapon on you for no good reason, though.

I don't get the complaints about it not feeling "alive" either. I've lost count how many times I've seen rabbits, deer, birds etc on my travels. It's hardly a ghost world, but it would be dumb if you always saw animals and people. It's a Western. You need isolation and tranquility every now and then. 

 

That's not considering how people will remember crimes you've committed. I mean I don't know about other games like RPGs, but as far as R*'s own stable goes it's hand down the most "alive" map they've ever made and this coming from someone who adores GTA IV.

 

Anyway I've been playing for about 16 hours, but I only have some slight niggles.

 

-The horse controls can sometimes feel a bit wonky. I got stuck in a space with a stage coach while I was being shot and died.

-I miss horseshoes and liar's dice.

Yeah complaining about it not seeming alive is a mad one, imo.  If anything, the game world feels a bit too alive at times with so much wildlife around at the same time.

1)A lot of pissed PC players(Saw this one guy complaining about the graphics on his laptop) 

 

2)Idiots(Saw this one guy giving it a Zero because he was pissed multiplayer isn't released yet and was explaining how multiplayer is a priority these days so they should ditch SP and release multiplayer.)

Consoles are on par with one another, all of them, except for resolution (and ambient occlusion on Xbox One). What, do you want the deep wilderness to be full of people as if this was a city like LS?

 

I really have a feeling a lot of the stuff in this thread is from people who haven't even tried to play the game and are just taking some complaints as gospel and immediately agreeing for the sake of it.

f*ck no, Arthur's sh*t eating grin is f*cking hilarious.

Seriously if I had just lost a big amount of money and the other guy gave me that grin I would knock his teeth out. They captured "sh*t eating grin" perfectly.

i may be wrong but in the total progression tap it says that there are only 5 bounties to hunt down.

 

seems to be a very small amount no?

 

same with chance encounters aka random events,only in chapter 2 and i already have done almost half of them.

 

are these numbers just a goal you have to beat and there are actually more of them?

Open your menu with the options button, select Story and manually save it in the Save Game section. If you want to keep your saves save, disable Autosave in your settings, or save a backup save in several slots. Hassle, I know, but from experience, it will save your hide from time to time.
