The employees of a major retailer, GameStop, were given a presentation of the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2. It was during the latest GME 2018 (ended on August 30th) when the GameStop employees got the chance to watch a 20-minute presentation of Red Dead Redemption 2, the next second title of the franchise owned by Rockstar Games.
Following this presentation, the employees shared their opinions on Reddit and the least we can say is that they are not happy with the title.
The 20-minute Red Dead Redemption 2 presentation deemed as bored
“Nice game, but most of the time, we saw a riding simulator. Very difficult to stay awake. The shooting scenes looked decent, but the bank robbery was slow. The game will be great and will sell like crazy, but this demo was very boring. Don’t get me wrong, I still think the game will be fantastic, just that the presentation was a bit boring to watch,” said one of those who watched the 20-minute Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer.
Others went even further by renaming the Rockstar’s game as Equestrian Simulator 2k19 and stated that the demo was painful to watch and boring.
While these words are cause for concern, other opinions on the Red Dead Redemption 2 demo reassure us a little
“To put things into context, everyone was exhausted from the past week, and that was the last thing they showed us,” another participant explained. “I dozed off for a minute, but the game is beautiful. The world looks so meticulously built, and the demo was a flawless example of the gameplay mechanics, the open world and the physics that the game can offer. I didn’t play the first episode and didn’t feel any excitement when I announced this sequel, but I left the presentation wanting to play it,” he added.
One thing is certain, the buzz surrounding the upcoming Red Dead Redemption 2 is far from finished, and new previews and presentations are expected in the forthcoming days.
