Red Dead Redemption 2 Still Among Best Looking Games To Date

Expert Verified By

Red Dead 2 Elevated Visuals To New Level!

Red Dead Redemption 2 is the latest release from Rockstar Games. Having sold over 46 million units, it is considered one of the most successful titles in the industry.

Red Dead Redemption 2 excels in narrative and world-building but also offers detailed visuals. Rockstar Games knocked it out of the park in the visuals department, and this has led to the game often looking better than the newest titles five years later.

Fans have taken to Reddit recently, discussing the game’s impressive visuals, with many believing it is still unmatched in graphical fidelity.

Why it matters: A graphical leap has been a crucial part of each console generation. However, Red Dead Redemption’s visual fidelity helps it compete with the latest games made for the capable hardware of current-generation consoles.

Almost 5 years later… Is there a game with better graphics and attention to detail than Rdr2?

The title is packed full of details. It includes some of the best animations, facial models, and environments in the industry. Rockstar Games’ lighting was also a leap beyond most titles from 2018, mesmerizing gamers in the world of Red Dead Redemption 2.

Even without the use of ray tracing, the game’s global illumination manages to impress. The impressive lighting is further complemented by high-quality shadows cast by the light from the sky.

While the game offers a vast open world, nearly every part looks distinct and maintains a high level of visual fidelity. Rockstar Games’ high-quality work has ensured it continues to impress to this day.

Although this is already praiseworthy, the game runs much better than many games released today. It can run well on mid-range PC hardware and was among the few games to run at native 4K resolution on consoles like the Xbox One X.

However, the immersive and realistic visuals are just one part of the puzzle. Red Dead Redemption 2 has an engaging narrative with memorable moments and a rich cast of characters.

All of this means that the game ends up being one of the best offerings from the studio and will likely be remembered fondly for several years as a highlight of the eighth console generation.
