Been playing it. Gonna review it. And I find it making me feel kind of uncomfortable.

I liked the first one a lot, because at least you could play the character as a generally good guy if you wanted to. This game... You can still kind of do that but there are unavoidable parts of the game where you have no choice, and I don't like that.

I haven't played the first, but I just stared playing 2. I think it's kind of frustrating. My horse died and now there's no way for me to get around.

I've started the initial write-up and I think the m orality section is going to be longer than the gameplay section. Sheesh. They really hit all the points.

Did you ever post a review for this game? I’m interested in reading it.

My thoughts: definitely not for the kiddies. I didn’t care much for being forced to be a bad man early on myself. In the end though, I think it worked out for the story they wanted to tell.
Spoiler:
One of the most interesting things I’ve read from players who finished the game is how some people started the game playing Arthur as evil as possible, but started changing the way they played after he found out he was dying of TB. It was also clear that all of the bad things you do early on end up having dire consequences for Arthur and the entire gang.
There’s a lot worth discussing in the story of this game, but for anyone adverse to playing the role of an evil man, I wouldn’t recommend.

I just submitted one, so you should see it soon.

I've been playing Arthur as noble as I can, but it feels disconnected when the story forces evil acts.

I know its a bit late to the reply, but I completely agree with what they did with Arthur. Why give you any good/evil reputation options in the game if there are certain quests where he has to be evil and then that lowers your reputation in the first place? I mean, I understand that he is an outlaw, but those quests where he has to collect money kind of messed with the way I was trying to play Arthur in the first place. At least with the first game (now its been many many years since I played it so I could be wrong), but I don't remember them forcing you into any situation where you had to be evil (or I completely blocked it out of my memory).

The controls were a pain to figure out, I got a bounty because I accidentally mugged a person because someone moved in front my me while I was trying to get to my horse and apparently the option it switch the button to was one where I attacked the person. Other than that, I thought that they did a good job with the actual game play if it wasn't for all the story missions that made me question why they even give me reputation options in the first place.
