It's just too big and too complex. Those who have time for gaming will love the depth and attention to detail, but if you are a casual gamer, like me, who has a couple of hours a week to play and wanted more of what Red Dead originally offered in great gameplay and story you will be disappointed. I don't want to spend those 2 hours cleaning my guns or horse. I don't want to find myself wanted by the law because i went too fast in a built up area or accidently shoved a pedestrian, I don't want to get overheated because I am wearing the wrong clothes. I just want to hop on my hoss and galavant across the mid west completing missions and meeting people.
Many will call it a masterpiece. And in several ways it is. But for me, I stopped playing after 2 weeks of trying, and I doubt I will start again.
