Started off a little slow but as soon as you leave the snowy mountain area and set up camp, you are allowed to free roam. My God does this game shine and feel new. It manages to make the world feel alive which is so hard to do in a video game. Switching between first and third person is awesome too. Cant recommend it enough so far.
What situations do you use first person? I've been playing in third person pretty much the entire time
Always in third person when riding a horse. I just figured out that If you set a waypoint, begin on your way and get your horse into a gallop, enter cinematic mode and you can sit back and watch the scenery and let your horse auto ride to your destination.
I like to use first person when playing poker, in some intense situations like when I was riding at night and stumbled across a KKK meeting and a burning cross. Ive killed some legendary gunslingers and taken their revolvers and sometimes it's nice to have a shootout in first person and admire the weaponry. Like to fistfight/stab people in 1st and if I'm raiding a house or camp and looking for things to loot I prefer it as well.
