Okay, so RDR2 is too realistic. Remember Gran Turismo 4? Like that. It's a western simulator. You lose your horse in the middle of nowhere he's gone. You're walking. You get hungry. You get tired. Things will eat you.

The map is huge. Riding to mexico feels like ... riding to mexico - on horseback. If you don't brush your horse periodically he gets slower. You have to feed him periodically if you're riding hard, kind of like the first one, but you can only carry one sidearm on you at once, so you're very reliant on your horse for carrying weapons. You have to bow hunt in this game. Guns make too much noise, and ruin the pelts you get so you can't make things with them - the only way to get satchel upgrades is tracking and hunting. It's slow. You get hungry. You have to sleep. Things will eat you. etc.

RDR 1 was the pace you'd expect of rockstar and was a fantastic game that's worth picking up an old ps3 to play by itself. RDR 2 ... not so much. It's a beautiful game - masterfully done - but the pace will bore you into a coma. It's like watching the Godfather series that way.
