Are RDR2 missions fun like GTA 5 and storyline is an absolutely masterpiece like GTA 4? And will the game be able to launch on PS5 because it's backwards compatible? And plz no spoilers because I haven't play the game yet.. if RDR2 is going to launch on PS5 too because it's backwards compatible then i'll just wait for PS5 to release so that I could play this game, GTA 6, Watch Dogs Legion, Cyberpunk 2077, God of War, Bloodborne, Dark souls and etc..

Both questions are very objective but uh:

 

1) It's a very different game from a GTA so the missions are different, but there's a lot of great ones. Lot of them revolve around big shoot outs.

 

2) I'd consider IV's story anything but a masterpiece IMHO but I'd consider RDR2's story to be up there, it's really good.

 

As for backwards compat, PS5 and Xbox Two will both have it so RDR2 will play work on them but it remains to be seen if there will be any sort of visual upgrade patch for the consoles. Also no news on any sort of remaster.

It's great, the only problem I'm having is frame-drops in cities on base PS4 (consoles huh), clunky controls and slow looting, but missions and story are great. Have fun!

Story isn't as engaging for me as GTAIV was, when I felt a strong sense of consequence for my actions during story, but this is more cinematic and it drags on and on after chapter 4.

 

Missions are fun to begin with but, again, by chapter 5 mostly descend into shootout number 1,365 against hundreds of spawning enemies. Missions are very linear. In comparison I'd suggest that they are not as varied or fun as GTAV, even when you take out abominations like the Yoga mission.

RDR1 and RDR2 are rockstar's greatest storylines next to the IV Saga. 

 

The missions aren't wacky or outrageous, but I'd argue the acting, character and gameplay are perfect substitutes, not everything is a hollywood blockbuster with massive explosions.

Missions are way more fun than the missions in GTAV but the story is way worse than GTA IV. I will not spoil anything, but to me the story is great during the three first chapters. The fourth chapter is not great but still ok but with some side quests that are really fun. The fifth and the sixth chapter and what follows really destroys the story to me. 

 

Do not get me wrong, the story if it was a movie or even better a drawn out and long drama akin to Deadwood it would probably be a really entertaining and good story. As it stands though, the two last chapters and what follows more often than not feels so out of place and frankly those chapters are really not very fun to play. Even the quality of the missions suffers towards the latter half of the game with some exceptions of course. 

 

Would I recommend you to buy the game? Yes I would, without a doubt! This may seem strange as I am very critical towards the last half of the game but the good things in total, outnumbers the bad things.

Red Dead Redemption II is a very different game to Grand Theft Auto despite their similarities. I'm going to say that the missions straight up aren't as fun as GTA V in regards to the action and objectives. The missions can be very linear at times and often they can drag on a little bit with shootouts being very common. GTA V's missions are more over-the-top and action packed, such as Monkey Business and Minor Turbulence, so the fun you'll get here is from the actual missions themselves. However, RDR2's missions instead are more story-driven, and if you can engage with the storyline, which is very engaging in my opinion, then you can get a good bit of fun out of it. GTA V's missions may be more fun in terms of action and objectives, but story wise they aren't the most engaging in the series.

 

Now comparing the storyline to Grand Theft Auto IV, that is a very hard decision. GTA IV's story is arguably the best in the GTA series, but both Redemption stories are fantastic as well. For me it kind of depends on what you're into. If you prefer crime drama stories then GTA IV's story is going to do it for you better, but if you prefer western stories then RDR2 is going to do it better. For me I can't personally decide since both appeal to me, though based on how much I've replayed them I'd say GTA IV's story is the slightly more compelling one since I've played it three times at my own free will. I've had no desire to return to RDR2's full story despite it being one of the best Rockstar stories there, but then maybe that's in part because of the linearity. Once you've done it once, you've pretty much done it.

I look at the metacritic, I saw the game gets a lot of hate even more than GTA V, so I'm afraid if I play it, I will hate it as well.. i'm really afraid.. but I'm still going to play it.. GTA V was a masterpiece so even though the game gets a lot of hate, i'm going to try to give it a shot and see if the game is fun or not.. becuz GTA V put my expertise really high for RDR2 and GTA VI..

In my opinion it's hands down the best game Rockstar has ever made. Like it's not even close.

The missions are much better IMO.  It is a much slower pace and should be part of your expectations.

Let me tell you just this:

 

Story- and singleplayer-wise, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the best game Rockstar ever made.

That sounds hopeful. How long is the game?

 

GTA V felt short compared to IV and especially San Andreas.

I'd say absurdly long - definitely more story content than any other Rockstar game, and it's not close.

I believe there's 104 official story missions, but then there's also about a dozen unofficial camp missions, about a dozen Strangers & Freaks mission threads - each of which is broken up into multiple missions, some of which are pretty lengthy. And there's even some random encounters in the game world that are as long and involved as official missions in GTA IV or GTA SA (or GTA V if you want to count the heist prep).

 

I genuinely don't think I've heard a single person complain that the game is too short - which was a very pleasant surprise given the direction that Rockstar seemed to be moving in prior to RDR2. A few people have complained that it's too long though!

 

On missions & story, obviously it becomes a little more subjective. But my own opinion is:

 

Missions - GTAV > RDR2 > GTAIV

Story - RDR2 > GTAIV > GTAV

Personally I spent entire two weeks playing almost only RDR2 for at least 1-2 hours per day.

I didn't play story strictly though. Like others I spent a lot of time in chapter 2 just free roaming, messing around, exploring and hunting.

 

And even after those 2 weeks I just reached the epilogue, where I started over to make a more complete playthrough.

 

It depends on your playstyle, but there is plenty to see and do and you can certainly spend a lot of time within the game.

That's less than 30hrs of gameplay 🤔

That's encouraging, that's even a few more than San Andreas I think. Well, you won't be hearing that complaint from me.

I believe it's exactly the same number of 'Official Missions' as San Andreas.

 

But the number for SA includes several optional mission strands (like the Wang Cars missions, and the God Awful Zero missions that I still have nightmares about), many of the equivalent of which aren't included in RDR2's total, and of course SA didn't have S&Fs or Random Encounters.

 

In short, there's a lot more story content in RDR2 than there was in SA, or any other Rockstar game.

I think I wasn't quite precise there.. some days (especially weekends) times piled up to several hours a day.. I think I had something like 60 ~ 70 hours in it by main story shift to epilogue..

i played the game three times.

 

First playthrough:. All sidemission, challange, pelts before story mission to get 100% (as a good guy)

Second playthrough: played only storymission as a bad Arhur (bad guy :-D)

Third playthrough: First storymission. I played all sidemission, challenge, pelts after the credits...  (as a good guy)

and my current playthrough is again. playing as a bad Arthur but no auto aiming, no dead eye and bounty in every state... doing just story missions

I've put around 300 hours into Witcher 3. If anyone's played both, how would they compare in length?

The Witcher 3 and the DLCs makes that game a monster, so even if RDR2 is a huge game it cannot compete with the Witcher 3 in that regards. In regards to how entertaining and the level of quality of said games, that comes down to personal preferences. Personally I like both games but for very different reasons but RDR2 is not as lengthy as The Witcher 3 but it is still a game that will take 100+ hours to complete all missions and challenges.

If you like balls-to-the-wall action, i’m not sure you’ll like this game, it’s very slow in places.

 

if you like open-endedness I don’t think you’ll like it either. I thought the story was depressingly linear. Some individual missions are the most on-rails things I’ve played in years.

 

if you like ambience, atmosphere, nature, chilling out, watching a sudden storm go by, looking at views from the top of a hill, or riding a horse along a stream, then it will be the best game you have ever played, and you will love it.

 

up to you really
