Red Dead Redemption 2
Top Critic Average
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.
Red Dead Redemption 2 is a game of rare quality; a meticulously polished open world ode to the outlaw era.
An astounding open world unlikely to be rivalled until well into the next gen, saddled by a throughline from the last.
An incredible technical achievement and a hugely accomplished Western epic that, despite a few minor flaws, represents Rockstar Games' most engaging and ambitious work so far.
One of the top three open-worlds of all time, and the best game Rockstar has ever made. An all-time Old West masterpiece.
Rockstar has once again created a game that redefines the open-world experience. Red Dead Redemption II is a triumph that every gamer should experience for themselves
After Red Dead Redemption 2's story concludes, a huge epilogue begins, and the game's already gargantuan map grows even larger. I'm eager to dig into this postgame, where it seems I'll be free to focus on taking in the beautiful, meticulously simulated world, rather than hurling myself into the middle of it.
RDR 2 succeeds as both a prequel to Red Dead Redemption and a story in its own right, and though it can take some patience, your effort is well worth it.
Red Dead Redemption 2 offers up an astoundingly engrossing world that's remarkably easy to get lost in.
