An astounding open world unlikely to be rivalled until well into the next gen, saddled by a throughline from the last.

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game of rare quality; a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era.

Red Dead Redemption 2's stark, slow depiction of America's fading frontier is a monumental work straining against stubborn mission design and stability problems.

One of the top three open-worlds of all time, and the best game Rockstar has ever made. An all-time Old West masterpiece.

It has - in my opinion
Wait
Wait a bit before buying the game. They updated it in December 2020 and it broke the dialogues in your camp. No matter how you are dressed, your gang members will comment about how lightly dressed you are for the weather. I thought it would be minor, but it ended up destroying the immersion. I thought this was a rare and old bug, but I learned it was a new one AFTER completing
2 / 5
I haven't finished the game and generally I enjoy it a lot. But after some frustrating bugs and I just wanted to come a write a review. First of all, you can't hear anything in the game. You need to set the sound on the highest option on your computer, so you would hear the dialogs in the game. The game was released for PC a year ago and they haven't managed to fix the sound.
Masterpiece
Absolutely a MASTERPIECE !! Rockstar have done everything in this game, an emotional long story with several characters to love and hate, a wonderful open world full of wilderness and lots of green space, small towns and big cities, lots and lots of side quests and random quests, many of mysteries in the world to discover during your journey, amazing attention to details in
