    Great Cowboy Game

    Red Dead Redemption was released nearly 10 years ago and still counts as my most favorite game. This new version of the Cowboy genre is more of the same goodness that I liked about the original. Playing the main story line of a bad man, robbing and shooting your way through the countryside and towns is fun and often hilarious. The game is wide open and each NPC reacts to your actions. In one instance I was down along a raging river hiding among rocks while the posse was on a cliff far above me. I took a pot shot at them and apparently spooked their horses. I soon had horses and men raining down on me as they all fell to their deaths. Unexpected and pretty funny.

    One of the Greatest Games of our Time

    It isn't very often when gamers pay the hefty $60 price tag and get more than they were expecting. But with Rockstar games like Red Dead 2, this is the case and we are very fortunate. Red Dead 2 has an expansive single player experience told with great storytelling and artistic detail. Rockstar always manages to tell an engaging story for a video game and it makes some movies look pathetic in comparison. For the visuals/audio, Red Dead 2 is entirely next level quality. Beauty is shown in the varied Western landscapes while the intricate detail is more noticeable in the town's/cities. If you're 17 or older, this game comes highly recommended.

    Open World Excellence

    Rockstar has proven yet again they are the king of open world games. The open world in this game is so inviting with so many things to do it almost overshadows the missions. The main thing about this game though is you really need to get into a mindset comfortable with the slower pace of this game. Otherwise you might think it's boring, etc. but that's just because we have so many twitch shooters out there that gamers have been force fed fast action games and when a slower paced game like this comes along they have a hard time adjusting. But don't fall into that trap, let yourself acclimate to the speed of this game and it will pay off in spades!

    This game is amazing. The graphic is amazing (base PS4 model), the world is amazing, all animations, everything about this game is perfect. It is an ideal "being a cowboy" sort of fantasy. I love westerns and wild west setting and this game is dreams come true. The world is one if not the best looking world game ever designed. Everything is so well designed that is breathtaking. There are almost 180 animals in game, the world feels organic and alive. I like gun play and all game mechanics. It is stunning bro. Well deserved 10/10. Game like this is released once every 8-10 years to I will make the most of it. Living the dream wooo hooo !

    Red Dead Letdown

    Red Dead Redemption 2 looks beautiful the moment you start up the game. However the dull and repetitive gameplay, the tedious missions, and overall boring atmosphere really make this overly realistic game not worth your time. Sure it has received a lot of commercial success but even those who bought day one haven't went back to play the game because of how dull the game truly ends up becoming. In 2019 the shooting mechanics shouldn't be this bad either. This game is nothing more than Grand Theft Auto 5 with a Wild West coat of paint with rinse and repeat gameplay.

    RDR2 is worth all the hype. It’s immersive and almost impossible to stop playing. The graphics, characters, and voice acting blows my mind. I admit the controls could be easier, but this game reminds me of westworld. Every NPC seems to have a story and you have the freedom to do whatever you wish or follow any story you find intriguing. It’s very immersive and well thought out. Definitely worth $50-$60 as the game is massive and the main story alone takes about 60 hours to compete. But with as much additional things you can do on your own and additional stories or side quests you can follow, the gameplay is endless.

    Ok so I’m a long time fan of rockstar games starting with the original ps1 GTA. RDR2 is indeed a good game but the only thing is that you really can’t enough this game without every 5-10 minutes running into a cut scene. Throughout the whole game you’re running into cut scenes and although you can skip them, you really don’t want to otherwise you’ll be lost in the story. This game pretty much reminds me of a soap opera that my mother would watch. Honestly it wouldn’t be so bad I’f it didn’t have so many cut scenes. Rockstar probably would’ve been better off turning this into a animation movie rather than a game.

    I love the old west, and this game and its realism certainly brings it! Will keep you entertained for hours. Think of it as a Wild west GTA (same developers). Graphics are amazing. One word of advice, if you have a HDR tv, turn HDR OFF in the game settings. Its been proven by several tech sites, the HDR implementation in this game is fake and actually worsens the graphics (sends a HDR signal to the tv, and makes them think its really HDR, however it does not have any of the HDR benefits), you can google it and you will see, even reputable tech sites like digital foundry recommend turning it off).

    Amazing Game, BUT

    Everyone else talks about how amazing the graphics, story, and depth of the world is, and I say to that: it's true. HOWEVER, I'll list a couple of things that I don't like and you can make your decision based on that. The gameplay and shooting itself is sluggish and delayed. If you cannot stand that, it's not a game for you. If horseback riding for what seems minutes at a time while you try to slowly get to story elements or locations are not your thing, then don't buy this game. If you can get over the above 2 issues most have with RDR2, then by all means, but it!

    Had this game pre-ordered for almost a year. Loved playing RDR. RDR2 is a pretty awesome game and worth the money paid for sure. Only thing I'm not too pleased with is the numerous items in several categories. One in particular that I'm not a fan of is all the tonics. Way too many kinds for both the player and the horse and just makes it difficult and time consuming to select or figure out what to select based on your need. Perhaps after playing for several hours, which this game has a lot to do, it won't be such a big deal, but starting out it's kind of over kill for no apparent added benefit to playing the game.

    A Beautiful Game, But YMMV

    After waiting nearly a decade for this sequel to Red Dead Redemption, I wasn't disappointed with the presentation, endearing characters both new and old, the variety of missions. If you can stick with it, you'll definitely be rewarded with a memorable story and beautiful cinematics. However, the pacing might immediately turn off some gamers, in the aim of being more immersive, the developers have turned every activity into a chore, whether hunting, crafting, riding or even looting. Folks who enjoy frenetic action games or like their open world games like Bethesda's should probably rent this first.

    If you liked Grand Theft Auto V, you’ll love this game. This game is basically Grand Theft Auto in the old West. Lovers of the show Deadwood and the old Clint Eastwood movies like the spaghetti westerns will not be able to stop playing this game. It puts you in control of the old west. With very similar controls as GTA V, get ready to spend hours playing it. You will take on missions to help yourself and other characters in the game, meeting new people and accomplishing tasks. This is one of the most addictive games I have ever played. Rockstar spent eight years making it, and if you ask me, it paid off.

    RockStar did a beautiful job on this game. The graphics are amazing, the interaction one can make with cp; A+. Love how the story makes these people feel real as if they lived before our time. My only problem is that it is so easy to get a bounty on your head and almost any little thing, Im running from the law. Ex: I was riding my horse on a trail and ended up running into another rider, yeah I killed him, but I rode off and about few seconds later a witness saw the body and magically knew it was me? However I still give this game 10/10!! Best western game I have played yet!

    Good but not Great, Highly overated

    Red Dead Redemption II feels really dated. Not much has changed since the previous game which came out over 8 years ago. Amazing visuals and entertaining game play do not save it completely from terrible and clunky controls. A story that drags on a bit too much into the mundane with so many characters one could care less to keep up with. Red Dead is funner played running around than terrible mission structure that plagues the flow of game play. Though this review sounds negative the game at its base is very fun and for those seeking 60+ hours of game play will find more than plenty to do here.

    This game deserved all of the hype. It is an absolutely fantastic game. The story is intriguing and the social commentary is frighteningly relevant even though the game takes place over 100 years ago. The gameplay is good. The main reason to dislike this game is that it can be a bit slow. The main character, Arthur, moves like a tank and he doesn’t shoot and react as quickly as some FPS fans would like. However, I enjoy the option to go fishing, hunt, and do in-game chores. All of these things help me relax and it’s a nice way to mix it up when you get tired of the shoot-em-up gameplay.

    Best Rockstar Game Yet

    This game is a cinematic marvel. The production values are evident throughout each moment as you're taken back in time to run with outlaws clashing with the encroachment of civilization. The gameplay isn't changed drastically from previous Rockstar games. If you aren't a fan of the shooting or the control of GTA V, you probably will dislike this. A multitude of other systems are introduced to simulate survival and maintaining a camp full of fellow outlaws. Most of these systems are inobtrusive or can be ignored. Overall, I recommend this to people who like Rockstar's previous efforts.

    This game has not left my PlayStation since its release date. There is just so much you can do in this wonderfully made open world game. Side quests are fun and dialogues are great. The attention to detail on this game is on point. I played mostly open world the first couple weeks while following the story here and there. The story is well written and Rockstar did a great job with the main character. You really feel like an outlaw. This is a slow and relaxing game, but everything feels like is going at the right pace. I can’t wait for multiplayer to start sometime the end of December.

    This game has so much depth you could play it for a month straight and still not get close to 50% of everything done in the game. The story is a little less fun than the og red dead redemption (characters not as cool or likeable as john Marston nor do their reasons make you want to finish the story line) but it is still a nice little adventure. This game does have multiplayer and it is still being refined. Grand theft auto online is still an ongoing thing so you know red dead will at least see another year online

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is easily one of the best games of 2018. The game features a great story, with perhaps the best protagonist ever in a Rockstar game. There is a huge world to explore with tons of content. The main storyline itself is around 40-50 hours long, and with all of the side content, a player could easily spend 80-100 hours on the game. The online portion of the game is lackluster, but I would consider that to be a separate entity in itself, so I wouldn't lower my rating due to that. Overall, an amazing game that almost everyone should enjoy.

    Narrative wise this game is amazing. The story about Arthur Morgan and the gang are top notch. The open world is stunning but there is a lot of gameplay problems. The horse riding to every mission that is halfway across the map is annoying. The base camp doesnt really matter towards the end. There isn't much to do after you played most of the story. Upgrading your stuff is pretty pointless and there isn't much stuff to spend your money on. Hunting and fishing are a waste of time. Don't even get me started on the online aspect which was extremely disappointing.
