    Brace yourself for boring tasks

    In an effort to be realistic, Rockstar lost sight of what makes games fun. Sure, it's cool to talk about horse testicles, and how the characters beard grows, how clouds go about in the sky.....but it does get boring if you're doing it for 60+ hours. The GTA formula is getting old as well - the control of aim is still AWFUL, and the limitations on how to do missions is stricter than ever. It's a step back from Red Dead Redemption (the original).

    My brother wanted this game for his bday and after listening to him explain it, I went and bought it. So glad I did. Its truly an open world concept and the map is huge. I like the concept of reality the game makers included (i.e. the time it actually takes to get to another town on horse, the energy you exert pushing your horse to hard or even running to for too long, the decisions you make including how you answer questions). There is so much to do within the story mode. I cant even imagine what the online play is like.

    This game...is more than a game...it's an experience. I honestly can't believe just how much content is in this game. I feel like I've barely touched even the surface of what this game has to offer. In fact, that's the only "negative" I have to say about the game...this game is HUGE. It will take a big chunk of your time away. I'm 30 hours in...and I'm like 31% done. Hello?! Still, the game is really just a ton of fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys story driven games with tons of content.

    I didn't play Red Dead Redemption so I was a little apprehensive going straight into RDRII. I watched a few of the videos of gameplay online and got intrigued enough to purchase it. No regrets so far. The storyline is straightforward and it doesn't require that you have played the previous title. I find that the gameplay is a blend of several games, so it's comfortable getting into the game's style. I am a HUGE skeptic when it comes to new games, but this one doesn't disappoint.

    Vague, unhelpful, unrecoverable instructions

    This is a game where the directions for play are incomplete and unhelpful. Occasionally something pops up and disappears before you have the chance to read it. There is no log of ongoing tips. The story is non-existent and the action play is boring. Where is the protagonist going with all this? Who knows? Worst, the action is completely dependent on crimes committed. You need money, you rob, kill, shoot. No reason other than it gets money. No story line. Where does the "Redemption" come in? Who knows?

    Definitely the deepest Rockstar game yet. The world is alive and vibrant. The characters are realistic, plentiful, and varied. The story is compelling and immersing. From a technical standpoint the controls are familiar but still managed to be a vast improvement over GTA V. And even though it's hard to create a video game where the missions stray from the typical go here, do this, talk to/interrogate/rescue/kill this person - the missions feel like they genuinely serve the story and are not time fillers.

    This game is awesome, much different than your average open world. You're running around, even on horseback, in a country western setting from the early 1900s. There is a lot to do in this game to keep you busy between story, gambling, and side missions. The 4k graphics look pretty well for a console game. Just a little difficult getting used to the controls and setup of the game, but is easy once you get the hang of it. Would recommend for anyone that likes open world and something other than your average shooter.

    Typical big budget Rockstar game

    I kind fell for the hype, but this is pretty much any Rockstar game that came out Post-GTA4. It's a big budget title with clunky controls and repetitive mission types. The voice acting is phenomenal and the atmosphere is amazing. However the gameplay is dull and typical of any Rockstar game that came out after GTA4. I miss the days of GTA3/Vice City/San Andreas where it was just about having fun. Now it's all about trying to make things like a movie and forgetting about the gameplay.

    Well, as predicted, Rockstar has done it again with blowing me away with Red Dead Redemption II. The Story is one of the most emotionally driven narratives I habe ever played and does not pull any punches. This game is a masterpiece. Arthur Morgan has became one of my favorite protagonists in gaming. If you love the first 2 Red Dead games, Red Dead Revolver, Redemption, and even western in general, get this, you won't be let down.

    Probably one of the best games ever made in my opinion. Rockstar definitely goes the extra mile on all aspects of their development and it shows. I haven't been this engaged in a game in quite some time, there is just so much you can do. Hunt, Rob, fish, treasure hunt and the storyline is engaging to boot. Graphically it's a masterpiece, especially paired with a HDR enabled display. I'm primarily a PC gamer, but this is one of the few games that make me enjoy my PS4 pro even more. What an experience!

    This game has been difficult to put down since I started it. It's definitely the type of game that requires patience and a willingness to be emersed in the world. If you take your time to progress through the story and take in everything it has to offer, you'll realize it can easily take half of your day without you knowing it. Red Dead Online is a work in progress, which was always expected, but the main story has enough to hold anyone over until RDO gets to the point that GTA Online is at now.

    I'll start off by saying, I wish this were released on PC as well. PS4 feels a little sluggish and the controls a little clunky. I'm not too far into the game because well, there's so much other stuff to do that I haven't progressed in the story. Just been exploring, playing blackjack, and having some shots at the bar. I can see the potential though - I don't think it'll make my "best games of all time" list or anything, but it's fun once you get going (the first story/mission seemed to drag on forever).

    I like RDR1 better than this one. RDR2 requires eating to stay alive in this game. If no eating and doesn’t get hurt/hit still decreasing your health? This is crazy. Eating in real Life is nothing compared to this game. If get hurt and eating for health gain would makes sense. It took a while to pick up items which kill the fun! I don’t know why the developers think this is great idea? Walking so slow on long trip made this boring as well. I just sold this game and lost $13. I need RDR1 remasters for PS4!

    rockstar did it again! we have been waiting years for the next chapter of this game and the delays were well worth it. absolute blast to play this game, story mode is very interesting with fun side missions. with two different endings, the game is really up to you. legendary hunts and animals are really interesting, but wait until you have the right equipment. i havent played online yet; i assume it will be like gta 5 and people randomly killing you non stop, but i will give it a try when it is out.

    I have not been able to stop playing this game since I got it. Well I do stop but I haven't played anything else. I had just started playing Assassins Creed Odyssey and I haven't picked it back up since getting this. This game is HUGE!!! There is so much to do and I haven't even scratched the surface. The graphics are outstanding. It doesn't explain quite a few things so you have to dig around to figure out how to do some features. Overall its a great game. I'm just sorry I never played the first one.

    I was skeptical at first. I'm not a hardcore gamer and almost never purchase the long story mode games with 60+ hours of gameplay. I may change my tune moving forward or at least just hope for more Red Dead in the future. This was amazing, I got lost in the world and found myself wanting to go back for more every day. It's been months and It still is not boring to me yet. I started a new game and am exploring even more now. Get this and have a blast.

    I'll be honest, it starts up VERY slow. It's slow, so many different things are thrown at you at once...I have to wear certain clothes, I have to shave, I have to bath, I have to do this and that. Now that I'm past the initial parts of the game and I know what to do and have a good grasp of the game I am really enjoying it. There is always something to do away from the story, hunting, fishing, stealing, etc. But like I said, if it seems slow at first just push through and you'll begin to love the game.

    Agonizingly Slow & Boring

    Seasoned gamer. This game is painfully slow and tedious with terrible controls that are only briefly explained. I don't understand how this game has such great reviews. It's a beautiful world but it's ruined by the worst gaming mechanics I've ever seen. I've revisited it 4 times now and cannot get into it at all. I'd rather play HZD, TLOU, Uncharted, GoW, or Assassin's Creed for the millionth time than slog through a single playthrough of this game.

    This is my honest opinion of the game. It was just okay for me. I feel like the story mode is dragging. I haven't touched my PS4 for the longest time because of Nintendo Switch and after receiving this as a gift, I tried it right away with so much excitement. Hadn't I played Breath of the Wild before this, I would have given this 5 stars. The loading of the story is very slow for me. I just became so used with the open world exploration BOTW. But all in all, I enjoyed this game.

    All the random interactions and story pieces that people rave about are great but the gameplay doesn't live up. Rockstar were more interested in creating a great story and believable world than an amazing gameplay experience. The gameplay isn't bad, but it's not great either and I've found plenty of small annoyances to counter act a lot of the small gems that get posted about online. I'd still recommend the game but with the understanding that it's not the perfect game that it seems to touted as.
