The endDeveloped by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world also provides the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience. America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang has to rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal fissures threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang that raised him. [Rockstar] Expand

    It's a game of restraint, but with some brutal sucker punches; the tale of a one-man cowboy army who is nothing without the people around him. It's a game about the fear of the future that reaches astounding new technical heights, and makes Rockstar's previous games look and feel like ancient history. It's a resounding triumph to which there is only one reasonable response - and an appropriate one, too. Hats off. [Christmas 2018, p.104]

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game of rare quality; a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era.

    There is a constant question as to whether or not games are art. Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game that is going to be used as evidence for that argument from here on out. It is quite likely everything people who played Red Dead Redemption would want or need it to be. This game is, at times, a power fantasy that allows people to give in to baser instincts and revel in chaos. It is also an examination of honor and morality in a man who is callous and hardened. There are even times when it explores and embraces downtime in the same way a Studio Ghibli does, practically begging players to savor the vistas, watch wildlife, and enjoy the ride.
  5. There is now way to explain this masterpiece with a few words. All we can say is, that's a next generation game, before next generation and it's amazing.

    With its amazing open-world, well-written story and deep characters, Red Dead Redemption II is a roller-coaster full of emotions. Controls may feel a bit clunky at times, but still: this is a masterpiece.

    Red Dead Redemption 2's evocative, often beautiful sense of place exists insofar as it is still convenient to the player, which harms some of the desperation and hardship the game means to convey.

    One of the best games I have every played. Even throught it's faults it still manages to be a great expirience. This is game is somewhereOne of the best games I have every played. Even throught it's faults it still manages to be a great expirience. This is game is somewhere between a 9.5 and a 10. The characters and the story are both really good. However I feel this game lacks a bigger ammount of straight up side quest where you begin a mission and play throught it like you would throught a story mission. There is a lot of collecting side quests which can be fun but too much of them can get a little boring. The movement and the controls feel really clunky, especially indoors. I encountered a lot of situations when Arthur would just start climbing on boxes and tables and not to mention the terrible default setting for the gun play. I have rated the game 10 because I hope rockstar will fix some of the issues in future updates and I definitelly look forward to the release of RDR2:Online and potential story DLCs. This game is absolutely a must play for anyone that owns a PS4 or XBOX ONE Expand

    Absolute outstanding video game, graphics are out of this world and one of the best stories i have experienced in a while. The small thingsAbsolute outstanding video game, graphics are out of this world and one of the best stories i have experienced in a while. The small things such as brewing your own coffee and having to bathe, eat and keep your horse in good condition really gives the player an reality feeling and it feels like the horse you own is like a pet and you don't feel like bathing it or feeding it is a chore. To conclude my rating is really high due to the overall enjoyment this game has brought me and i hope the online takes this game to the next level. Expand
