    How the west was won

    I didn't play the last Red Dead Redemption, however I was never really a Grand Theft Auto person and had my skepticisms about this game. However, there is no denying this is a technical marvel in gaming. The world is vast and beautiful, the characters are intriguing, the action is intense, and Rockstar did an amazing job with their attention to detail. The game can be a little slow at times with it's travel and dialogue, but I feel it's intended to make you sit back and appreciate the experience. One thing everyone should do though upon starting the game is to adjust your settings. Turn dead zone to zero and look sensitivity all the way up. I highly recommend people check this game out, although it might not be for the inpatient and kids.

    Tap Tap Horse Riding Simulation

    I loved Red Dead Redemption 1 so much I went on a spaghetti western movie kick for nearly a year. RDR2 sounded like more fun but what I really feel like I was doing was riding a horse. Tapping and Tapping to get places. Now don't get me wrong, the entire game is drop dead gorgeous the voice cast, the soundtrack was good but oddly chosen at times and characters were great. It was just everything in between. I love exploring games but this felt empty of life in some places you'd expect more. And more life in the corners you don't expect it. All in all it wasn't a waste of time just not that great of a game. I left expecting more. Maybe I have always given RDR1 too much credit these years later. Not bad, but far less memorable than it's predecessor/sequel.

    I recommend you read non critic reviews of this game. It is very slow and does little to entice you to keep playing. Visually it is beautiful and it is clear the developers took time to make this a really in depth experience. However, it feels like you are doing chores too often and hardly having fun. The control scheme is awful: movement feels very clunky and difficult to manage especially while riding a horse. It’s easy to accidentally hit people and have the law sent after you. Looking for items or information across the menus is a nightmare, and further slows down an already slow game. I give the game 3 stars for the graphics and atmosphere but take two away due to the lack of fun and pace. I would not buy this until it is much cheaper.

    I'm a fan of the Grand Theft Auto games but this was the first Red Dead game I've played. Figured I'd give a shot because it got great reviews and I know a lot of people that like it but it wasn't for me. The story and dialogue are entertaining but where it loses me is how slow everything is. Movement is slow, to pick up items is a chore, to run and go fast on your horse you have to constantly tap a button (I didn't mind this in GTA because at least you had cars where you could hold down the button). I know they wanted to make it a huge open world and have a lot of RPG elements, but for me everything loses it's fun by making it so realistic. I like video games to escape reality and only play the fun parts but in this game it just feels like your doing a bunch of chores to get to the exciting parts.

    Similar to GTA but on horses and hunting

    Think of Grand Theft Auto but in the Wild West. Same concepts, do missions or roam the land causing trouble. The story line is great along with the gameplay. There's alot of little details in the game to look out for and you'll probably spend alot of time hunting for pelts/skins. Some good changes is the way the "Wanted" mechanic works. A different method of punishment for causing trouble in town. If you cause trouble the Sheriff will hunt you down, When you manage to flee, a bounty is placed on your head. The difference here is that you can return to town and not get shot at by the sheriff. However every now and then, wherever you're at, bounty hunters will come after you. In order to remove it, you need to pay a large sum of money to have it go away.

    I bought this item as a gift for a family member and they did not approve of the game. Before gifting a game like this, I would advise you to see what other games that person is interesting in before purchasing. The reason for this is the fact that once this game has been opened it CANNOT be returned for another game and at most you will only be given 20 dollars as a trade in. No fault of the game but something to take note of. Game Review: That being said, its a game of the year for the PS for sure. If you had at any point played GTA or Red Dead this game won't disappoint. The only bad thing about the game is if they continue to charge people for ingame currency in multiplayer and if you are a parent, I would not advise to get this game for anyone under 16.

    Good game, but highly overrated

    By no means do I think this is a BAD game, but it's certainly the most disappointing AAA title ever made, in my opinion. The first RDR is one of my ten favorite games of all time, and I still pick it up to play to this day, almost a decade later. I was so excited about this game, that perhaps it couldn't live up to its own hype, but unfortunately, if crumbles under the weight of its ambition. This is more of a horse riding simulator than an actual video game; there are some outstanding characters and voice acting, but the action is clunky and dull for the most part. This is a must play for those who want to get the backstory on Dutch's gang, but unless you want to spend all of your time brushing a horse, taking a bath, and walking SLOWLY through camps, stay away.

    Game of the year

    This game is hands down game of the year. So much you can do. Such a huge map. NPC's with thousands of reactions. I haven't played a game this religously in literally years. You could spend hours roaming the mountainside, fishing, hunting, doing missions...pretty much anything. This is the first time in years a game has actually given me chills while I'm playing it. When riding your horse and you hear someone scream in your headphones you make the decision to go help them and risk being robbed or change your good/evil meter back to good. The more good deeds it changes the way the storyline goes, the more bad does the same. It's pretty crazy. This game does deserve the M rating it gets however so don't go buying it for your kiddo thinking its just a cowboy game.

    After generating incredible hype, RDR2 definitely delivers. The prequel to the first Red Dead Redemption is a mountain of a game, offering many, many hours of fun, story-rich gameplay. It’s important to note that RDR2 can’t be rushed through; to truly appreciate what it has to offer, you must be willing to take your time with the game. It isn’t constant action, and as a matter of fact, there are long dialogue and travel scenes. Also, if you have never been a fan of Rockstar’s games and their “weighty” controls, you may not be able to get into RDR2. Unsurprisingly, the game is absolutely gorgeous, and the writing and voice acting are better than a lot of western films. RDR2 isn’t for everyone, but for those who do enjoy it, it’s one of the greatest games this generation.

    Rockstar Games went above and beyond expectations.... Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece. The Good: - Visually Stunning - Great character development - Large immersive open world - Amazing Soundtrack - Fun missions (Train Heist) - As Arthur Morgan you literally feel like you're part of the story... The Bad - Controls can be clunky. - No 2 player Offline. - Few days learning curve give it some time though! The Ugly - The stakes are high, you do bad and your character will suffer. Your horse dies and it's permanent. Honestly anything bad I have to say comes from just nitpicks. I really enjoyed this game. As a casual gamer, I can't really imagine going back to a game that isn't made by Rockstar at this point. Simply astonishing....

    It's amazing how frequently content (gaming, movies, etc.) can be over-hyped to the point that once you consume it, it just doesn't hold up to the hype; RDII lives up to hype generated during the long awaited release. Is it perfect? No, but any of us can find flaws in even the most scrutinized content or product before release. The real question is whether those items detract from the overall experience or fail to impart new experiences or a depth of knowledge that gives more meaning. That doesn't exist here. It can be slow at times and there are some pieces that you must commit to but those requirements bring a greater amount of depth and realism to the experience. It's well balanced and worth it in my opinion.

    Red Dead Redemption was maybe my favorite game of the last generation, and this one expands on it in nearly every way. Not just the story of this gang before the events of Redemption 1, but also on the world and the gameplay mechanics. Any time I lose track of time playing a game, that's the sign of how much I enjoy it. I've only gotten up to Chapter 3 so far, but the main missions I felt have been done really well and feel epic, while all of the side stuff (helping out your gang, chance encounters, side activities) have been a lot of fun. I suspect this will be the only game I need to play for the next couple of months, provided I don't get through it quickly with late night play sessions.

    Like GTA 5 the reviews about this are a bit too hyperbolic. They generally claim that it's a 'revolutionary leap for the genre' that 'fundamentally changes the standards we have for gaming stories'. It's a very well-crafted game. And as far as its cut-scenes it may be better than anything that's come before. But as a game as a whole, it's only really an upgrade from what came before. It is very recognizable as a Take Two game. The gameplay is not nearly as stark and survivalistic as people make it out to be. It's not as realistic as people make it out to be (the shootouts are still spaghetti westerns where you're easily gunning people down by the dozen). It's just a very well-crafted game.

    This is not the Masterpiece that many reviewer are making it out to be. I will say it is unparalleled in it's attention to detail. Story telling is well thought out and the voice acting is solid. With that being said there are a few thing which I feel hold the game back from being truly great. Too much time spent riding from point A to point B can make the game boring at times. Also, the controls still feel clunky. Arthur Morgan, the lead antagonist, feels like he weighs about 500lbs. Many of the controls are mapped to the same button which can lead to frustrating moments. Despite some of it's flaws, fans of the original and newcomers alike will enjoy their time spend in the Wild Wild West.

    The most important thing to understand about this game is it is NOT GTA but in the wild west...Red Dead Redemption 1 and 2 are both about creating an engrossing western experience. It is not just running around shooting everything, it is being a cowboy. You have to take care of your horse, your guns, and yourself. The story is rich and full of unique and awesome characters, the combat is very satisfying and all the different things you can do are tons of fun, whether it be hunting legendary animals, fishing, poker, or just riding around on your horse taking in this insanely detailed game world. Pick this game up!

    Rockstar is the best when it comes to open world games. Red dead 2 doesn't disappoint at all. You'll find yourself in a vast open world set in the late 1800 or early 1900. The game is pretty much like a grand theft auto with so many things to do whether it's hunting, fishing, helping random strangers, finding hidden treasures. I love the dynamic weather that occurs and it's just a very beautiful looking game overall. The story alone will take anywhere from 70-80 hours. I've put in a good amount of time into the game and I'm only 26% done. Don't miss out on this amazing game. Definitely worth the 60 bucks and even better if you have the gamers club discount. Thanks for reading!

    If there is such a thing as the perfect video game experience, this is it. A game for me I thought could not get anymore immersive than “The Last of Us”, but I was wrong. Rockstar did their thing with “Red Dead 2”!!! The story is phenomenal, has you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Makes you invest your time into the story of Arthur Morgan and his gang buddies such as his mentor Dutch van der Lin. The level of detail to this open world game is just beyond words. Wow. I could not be happier with this game. If you thought the first Red Dead, or GTA5 was huge, wait till you play this game. You will not be disappointed, and I haven’t even got to play online yet!!!!

    The REAL Game of the YEAR!!

    By far, this is the game of the year. Yes... I've played God of War... Yes.. I've played Spiderman.. Yes.. I've played Super Smash Ultimate. Still.. this is the game of the year. No other game has nearly as many customizable options than this game. I mean, you can even choose whether or not he takes BATHS! Come on! lol Seriously though, 10/10 reviews on most sites. This is the game of the year. The only gripe I have is that with the ONLINE play.. its a money grab. You basically have to PAY for Gold bars to upgrade stuff that you need to win. Its just as bad as NBA 2k19 in that area. But online is basically a completely different game. The CORE game is awesome. 5 stars.

    I've been waiting for Red dead's sequel since it was released, and I was excited about it. I'm still enjoying, it's just one of those games where I like it, but don't hate it. My issues with seems to come with all the micro managing things you have to do within the game, the story itself while good it's pacing is a bit slow. There'll be times you get bored waiting for something to happen and it doesn't. I give it to rockstar, they really did put their time into it and it shows. Visually it is stunning and amazing. I still am currently playing it in time I may change my mind on the pacing, but for now it stays the same. I don't regret my purchase one bit.

    It takes some getting used to. And, quite frankly, the way it handles certain things like dealing with your inventory and item management, and character management are quite awkward. But the main thing about this game is that they are providing you with a large setting in which things are happening, many different small stories. And its up to you to come across them. Alot of these things may be things that you just stand there and watch like its a scene from a tv show. Other things will make you want to step in and intervene and change the outcome. There's TONS of them, and they are all done with an extraordinarily high quality. It makes this a world for you to explore.
