The graphics on this game are amazing! The map is huge – it takes 16 minutes to cross it on horse back. I love the more in depth-ness too, like how you can actually have to skin the animal for a few seconds rather than push a button and it's done instantly. You can customize everything on Arthur as well as you horse. There are around 200 different animal species in this world of Red Dead, 19 of which are just the different breeds of horses you can break, train and own. If you pre-ordered and got the pre-order bonus the War Horse you receive is a beast! When I was playing it in the same room as other people they remarked that the cut scenes were like watching a Western movie. I highly recommend this game weather you have played RDR1 or not!
