so with this special amazon UK edition you get the red metal box that you can see in the picture next to the videogame. But the red box is empty. It looks like it’s suppose to have the game inside because you have space for both discs however why did they send this empty box with nothing in it ? As you can see they send the normal plastic box with the game and the download code for the horse and the kit and the map but why did they not put it in the red metal box ? However I think this “empty box” edition is worthy the money because the normal version game costs the same but with this one you get a horse and a super cool steel container for the best game of the year!!
The game is great, exactly what I was expecting. Rock star games never failed me.
A slow, long but great game - it's like another world.
I love how these newer games are so cinematic with such high attention to detail and amazing graphics. I am playing this on a PS4 PRO with a 4K TV and it is truly breathtaking. That said, I actually think that the graphics on horizon zero dawn are marginally better (but Red Dead 2 offers better interaction with the environment).
The gameplay is good, although a little slow to start - perhaps I am being inpatient, but I played for at least 45 mins and it still felt like I was in the tutorial section.
Also, I have a confession to make, I haven't played Red Dead 1 nor have I played any GTA (not since it was 2d and birds eye view anyway) and the movement of the character feels a bit restrictive in comparison to Horizon Zero Dawn - perhaps this is common in GTA/Read Dead games?
I am hoping that it is not too badly influenced by the planned micro transactions in game which seems to be slowly eating away at fairness in games and creating a 'pay to win' industry.
Overall, happy with this purchase and it came with a free collectible Steelbook (was the same price as the version without) - but bizarrely, the whole package (game box, steelbook and packaging) absolutely reeked of cumin. Not sure why, but very odd.
You get steel book, game with data disk and play disk, a map and a code for dlc which is for war horse and outlaw survival kit. This is well worth it as the out of this is the same as the game disks on there own. The game is large 105gb and takes a while to install but graphically this game is leagues ahead of all the others, the interaction with the world is realistic and it is easy to get lost playing this game for hours. Best game for monetary value would definitely recommend.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a fantastic game. Deserves all the praises as a story, characters and acting. This edition is great. You get the game, extra steelbook case, downloadable extras and map. Just get it.
