Red Dead Redemption 2 is now available on Xbox GamePass.

What does that mean?  It means isolation doesn’t need to be over for another good 100 hours.

This is a Rockstar game, and if you know Rockstar, you know they make addictive, entertaining, control gripping gaming, just look at Grand Theft Auto.


First of all, if you didn’t play Red Dead Redemption 1, don’t worry!  RDR2 is a prequel to 1, so technically, you’re not missing anything but a few Easter Eggs.

So, if you haven’t played this game yet, you’re in for an adventure.

Let’s start with the great story telling.  The characters are so captivating, you’ll find yourself not just wanting to hunt down the evil doers that do you wrong, but you’ll want to lasso the varmints, tie them to the train tracks and watch that iron horse steam down the tracks and leave them to be nothing but a red mist!


Despite what serial killer tendencies you may now have, this has a story that will have you mourning for characters you lose, saying to yourself "just one more mission", and not sleeping for a while.


Gameplay for this is simple, guns and weapons are plentiful, and with the open world and your imagination, exploration is endless.

No spoilers, but the best part of the game, is that the missions can be so different.
Which brings me to my favourite mission:
Getting drunk with Lenny, hallucinating your way through weird fighting gameplay, and I won't get into what you get up to once you sober up.


Although I admit, there are some negatives to the game.

Online multiplayer has some issues, the constant long travelling by horse, and the amount of intricacies to just simply stay alive was a little overwhelming at first, but it's still a really enjoyable game.

And there's so much to do, from collecting every last plant, pelt and bounty, to playing with friends online.

Overall, there’s obviously a reason this won so many Game of the Year awards and perfect scores... and now it’s FREE (if you already have Xbox Game Pass).

So, even though I already bought the game on midnight launch and played it right through (see video below) , I’m ready to start this one up from the beginning again.
