Let’s talk about Graphics and Music. What we saw in trailers wasn’t a lie it was all true. Beautiful grass and vegetation, trees, ponds, animals (some cute and some brute), Skye feel excellent. There are dirt and mud when you walk or ride the wind will blow your clothes and hair. Engaging actions and firefights with such real graphics that you can’t take your eyes from, beautiful music and sound effects to compliment all the beautifully crafted scene, it’s so mesmerizing we enjoyed it a lot.
We can go on and on about graphics and music and story. Rockstar Games and delivered a Marvel. We are sure you’ll enjoy this impressive game as we did.
