Red Dead Redemption 2 review
Meh
by Scottie G

A bland, western grind. Red Dead Redemption 2's cinematics and atmosphere are enough to draw you in for a solid few hours of first-time gameplay. Though well before the midway game point, the missions begin to become tedious and repetitive - "go to X point and talk to X person before riding to X point and shooting X". Although there is enough detail in this beautiful western world to keep you busy exploring for days - the clumsy controls, broken law system, tedious hunting and crafting and dull traveling become a nuisance and makes we wonder if this game is as polished as it should have been. I've been a massive Rockstar Fan since the very first GTA and have played GTA V multiple times on multiple consoles but there is something really lacking in the main mission quests and character progression, by the midway point I was really pushing myself to get through the main story and had little difference between new game Arthur and End Game Arthur (besides most of the characters becoming frustrating and unlikable - WHERE ARE YOU LEENNAAY?). I really have to question the review sites who have posted this as being almost perfect - it's an 80 out of 100 MAX.

i once played poker for 4 hours against an NPC, i lost. However i did shit myself during the poker match and that was enough to let me enjoy the beauty that is this masterpiece 15/10
An incredible feat in gaming.  Truly a masterpiece.  I've never played a game that was so consistently and deeply immersive.  The story is great, the characters are fantastic, the animations carry weight, the gameplay is slow but that only helps the immersion and cowboy sim feel of it.  Pulling from influences in western movies, traditional American folk tales and folk music, the Hudson River school of art, and real history, it creates a world that feels real, lived in, and instantly familiar. 
I am not wanting to finish this game because of it's quality, seriously, it is in my top 3 games of life 
The first and only game that I went for 100% completion. There is no better game than this in terms of immersive story telling, world building, characters you actually care about, graphics and sound. When the end came around (before the long epilogue), I think I actually teared up. No game has ever made me tear up. Rockstar, please stop wasting your precious developing resources on Red Dead Online and make a tru RDR 2 DLC, or get on with your next massive open world project.
