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.

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.

This game has heart; the kind of heart that is difficult to pin down but impossible to deny. It is a wonderful story about terrible people, and a vivacious, tremendously sad tribute to nature itself. There is so much beauty and joy in this expensive, exhausting thing. Somehow that makes it even more perfect—a breathtaking eulogy for a ruined world, created by, about, and for a society that ruined it.
