About

America, 1899. The end of the wild west era has begun as lawmen hunt down the last remaining outlaw gangs. Those who will not surrender or succumb are killed.

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 must rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

From the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America at the dawn of the modern age.

Red Dead Redemption 2 reviews and comments

Simply the greatest game ever made, which was my opinion when the first one was released. It's story is perfectly written and captivates you and sucks you in from the very begining to the very end. Outstanding!
«Blew my mind»
«Just one more turn»
Red Dead Redemption is a game I always remember. I was a year out of college and sort of didn't know what I was going to do with my life. I remember being down in the dumps a bit living with my roommate in Concord NH. I loved Rockstar games and remembering looking up Red Dead Revolver and it looking like a game I probably wasn't too interested in. I picked up Red Dead being skeptical and it ended up being one of my favorite games. A character you could become obsessed with, John Marston. 

Cut to 2019 and Red Dead Redemption has been replaced. That gunslinger I once loved has been replaced by a caring bad guy who is self-aware of the bad deeds he continues to do. He can't help himself and he knows that, which is probably why I love his character so much. With one of the realist villains I can remember with Dutch Van Der Linde and some of the most realistic gameplay in a videogame, I was enamored for 80 plus hours of gameplay. 

I can't wait to remember it again.
Red Dead Redemption was an interesting game but surely nothing groundbreaking. It had its own personality and taste but was brought down by its slow-paced, clunky and repetitive gameplay. This prequel is no difference.

Rockstar obviously put a lot of effort into creating an immersive and visually stunning setting. All locations are beautifully crafted, incredibly rich in detail, and full of things to do and places to explore. Like in most open-world games, the map is enormous just for the sake of it, with most events concentrated in the rather small cities and camps, but I guess that's how it really was back then. While graphics are impressive for a game of such scale, I wish they could work a bit more on at least the main characters' models. Facial animations and skin textures are pretty good, but hair mostly looks like something from a late seventh-generation game.

The story is nothing new but delivers: it's backed up by a lot of memorable, all-round characters, and writing, acting, and direction are top-notch for a videogame. It was great to meet the rest of Dutch’s gang and see their development throughout the 40+ hours of the campaign. The connection with the events of the original game is well thought, and Arthur is a surprisingly likable main character. It takes quite a considerable amount of gameplay to get to properly remember everyone, get attached to them and finally get sucked in, but it will pay off in the end.

The gameplay is incredibly outdated: controls are clumsy, unresponsive, and convoluted. Combat and shooting suffer the most as everything is as flat and clunky as it was in the first game over eight years ago.
Missions are repetitive, monotonous, and rarely rewarding. They can all be summed up as endless horse rides, shoot-outs, and fetching/moving objects with not much interaction. The game also decides to reset or change your inventory depending on the mission, leaving no room for strategy in selecting good equipment. The rest is just an endless list of way too many unnecessary and tedious chores to remember. Shaving, trimming, hunting for food, cooking, eating, cleaning weapons, wearing the right clothing, looting, collecting money, taking care of your horses, etc. Most of these tasks surely add realism but are not that much fun to play. The game also gives you the opportunity to donate part of your rewards and loots to the gang to update the camp, which I liked, but it's mostly minor graphic additions and some provisions which you can easily find in the game anyway.

Overall, I really enjoyed the story, setting and characters, but the monotonous and outdated gameplay needs a lot of improvement. It would still recommend this game if you like open-world experiences but this is far from being the masterpiece professional reviewers are talking about (7.2/10).

The campaign was incredible, I'd never been so engrossed in a single-player experience. It's like a whole other life you live as Arthur Morgan.
«Can’t stop playing»
«That ending!»
After finishing this game, every other game feels like garbage and certainly not worth to be paid with the same currency.
«Blew my mind»
«OST on repeat»
I felt like I was there, so immersive! Rockstar outdid themselves this time. What a game!
«Can’t stop playing»
Only downside is a kinda clunky gameplay.  Everything else is phenomenal. 
«Blew my mind»
«Can’t stop playing»
This is by far the best video game ever I LOVE this game it’s so easy to get lost in and there are so many things to do. Rockstar Games is my favorite game company and the usually do an exceptional job with their games and this exceeded exceptional by my standards. 
«Blew my mind»

One of the best, most well executed stories in gaming.
