“Red Dead Redemption II” completely immerses you into the American frontier. Whether you are robbing a train, getting in a fight at the saloon, or just simply hunting to survive, the game offers many opportunities for players to immerse themselves in the Wild West.

The game is a prequel to the 2010 game “Red Dead Redemption.”

“Red Dead Redemption II” was released Friday, Oct. 26, and had the highest grossing weekend ever on next-generation consoles. It’s easy to see why.

RDRII is an open-world game filled with many things to do.

Set in 1899, the game follows the adventure of outlaw Arthur Morgan. Morgan is a member of the Van Der Linde gang.

He is a conflicted man who knows right from wrong, yet he doesn’t always make the right decisions. The gang is living in a world where outlaws are a rare breed.

Throughout the main story, Morgan and the gang are running from the law, settling in new places, and just trying to make a life for themselves.

You never know what to expect while playing. One minute you’re riding your horse to a new location, the next you’re being attacked by a pack of wolves.

The decisions you make in the game change how honorable, or dishonorable, you are. The amount of honor Morgan has affects how people treat you.

This creates a captivating play style, causing the choices you make to have repercussions that stick with Morgan.

RDRII is receiving great reviews from players and critics. IGN gave the game a 10 out of 10 saying it “might be Rockstar’s best story ever.”

Noah Ross, senior, enjoys how the game transports him to another era.

Ross said, “I love the adventurous parts it brings from the past and how it makes me feel like a typical American gunslinger.”

Besides the story and play style, RDRII is beautiful. The open world is filled with breathtaking scenery that really brings the wild west to life.

You could be in the rustic southern town of Rhodes surrounded by bogs and wetlands or in the northern mountains admiring the snowy slopes and deep valleys.

All in all, RDRII is a unique experience with an exclusive play style.

Packed with a 60-hour-long story, there is plenty to do in this game.

If you are looking for something to make you feel like an old-fashioned bandit, this is the game for you.
