This game is one of those that shows that even though it isn’t perfect, it’s still thoroughly enjoyable, there’s a massive world to explore, plenty to see and do and loads of different characters and storylines to complete. Yes, it has its issues, but these can be easily looked over to see the bigger picture of what the game is trying to achieve.
For my first ‘Dragon Quest’ experience, I thoroughly enjoyed myself. The building aspect wasn’t tedious, there was always a method to the madness, but not restricting it in the sense that you had to build this and that, there was always that balance that gave you creative freedom, while sometimes helping you along.
Overall view of American Fugitive is that this could be a brilliant game on the Switch, it’s presentation is brilliant and it looks beautiful, there’s destruction to be had all around Redrock but the issues with the game mentioned above kind of hold this back, plus the bizarre choice when respawning after death just brings the game down from all out gang warfare to playing with super soakers. If you can get past the annoyances, I would say go for it and give the game a try, it does have potential but again, the downsides can’t be ignored.
Would I recommend this game? Yes, purely because it is so much fun to play, it's random, over the top and bat shit crazy. I guess that is one thing that sets it apart from other open worlds, I don't think there is much if anything that is as crazy in the open world genre as this is. Rage 2 will more than likely consume a lot of hours of your time with all the different things there are to do within the world, but it's so much fun that you probably won't even notice. Just one more mission?
On a whole I do have to say that the game does fell like the complete package, with all the extras such as characters that you can select from, all the DLC that was available being included, you are getting your monies worth, however, the technical aspect of the game still hold it back slightly. That being said, if you’re a fan of the series, or never got around to playing it the first time around, you will definitely enjoy the game.
This is one of my most anticipated games and after playing it, I was right to be excited about it, and what the future DLC is going to bring for us. If you’re on the fence about it and have friends that play, give it a go, it’s good solo but so much more fun in a group.
