    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.

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.

    After the long wait, finally Rockstar fans can play one of the finest games this generation. Red Dead Redemption 2, for those with the hardware capable of running it, is the best western gaming experience we could ever have hoped for.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is a masterpiece. No other game has ever tried and succeeded to capture a sense of a time and place long gone while also blending social commentary so well. The addition of a multiplayer mode that's a real step up from Rockstar's last effort makes Red Dead Redemption 2 unmissable on PC.

    An absorbing tale that will test your machine and tear ducts. A game that did not suffer from being brought to PC. RDR2 is worth overcoming all the shortcomings, since it is one of the best games of the decade. [Issue#300]

    It’s not perfect, but the PC version of one of the greatest games of the generation is definitely a sight to behold. Even with some room for improvement, PC players will enjoy making the most of their hardware with Rockstar’s latest title.

    This monumentally huge game, full of unprecedented detail and atmosphere of the Wild West, simply has no equal. Its PC port isn’t perfect by any means, especially regarding the mouse and keyboard controls and the clunky interface.

    An epic masterpiece of modern gaming, whose PC launch is unfortunately marred by potentially serious technical issues.

    The PC release of Red Dead Redemption 2 is without a doubt visually breathtaking to behold, but a wide range of issues at launch sour the experience of revisiting Rockstar’s captivating Western.

    I, like many others, bought this game upon release. I put about 40 hours into it before I bailed. It’s not that it was a bad game, it justI, like many others, bought this game upon release. I put about 40 hours into it before I bailed. It’s not that it was a bad game, it just felt boring to me. I didn’t “get it”. But, in June of 2019, I started over on the PS4. Since then, I have put over 1000 hours into both the story mode and online. I have 100% in story mode and I haven’t played any other game since. For about 6 years, I was playing exclusively FromSoftware games as they were the only games that held my attention. Somewhere after a few dozen hours, everything just clicks. The tedious, silly tasks no longer seem tedious. Everything seems to have purpose. It is, quite literally, the greatest video game ever created. From the amazing story to the insane graphics. I just get lost in the world. At this point, I can navigate with only a compass. I understand why so many gave up and thought it was boring. For those folks, if you have ANY interest in video games, give it another try. It has earned the top spot in my mind that was previously held by Final Fantasy VII since 1997. This game is the greatest game of all time. It sets out to do everything a video game is meant to do and does it all. This is the ultimate playground. Don’t let it pass you by. Expand

    It is an unfortunate thing that Rockstar one of the most prolific game developers that bring us such amazing experiences give little love toIt is an unfortunate thing that Rockstar one of the most prolific game developers that bring us such amazing experiences give little love to the pc community. They used to make wacky goofy games and one offs that pushed the envelope in different directions and took risks but Take 2 is a disease riddle with corporate money addicted micro transaction loving soulless garbage. I love Red Dead and put hundreds of hours into it and more on the remaster before Red Dead 2 but this is unacceptable. Why is it that the pc is an after thought that developers just throw crap at a wall and hope it sticks? The pc is what gave Rockstar it's billions of dollars from online and mod communities yet they give so little of a f$#% that it hurts their well earned reputation. Red Dead 2 is an amazing well built story with compelling characters and story beats that keep you committed and engaged throughout it's lengthy campaign. This is one of the most engrossing and beautiful experiences I have had on my Xbox one X but the pc version is a hot garbage fire that is unacceptable. You are made by your customers and destroyed by the same people who once held you in such high esteem. The years of love and childhood fond memories can only last so long before you start to get torn out of the past by just how greedy and disrespectful these devs have treated this community. There is noaccident that CDProject Red is held so high as the gold standard of how to treat your community and give them what you want yourself from a game. Once you put money above fun, exciting stories and strip single player dlc out for some boring "community" mods and games as a service nonsense you deserve everything said about you and seeing so many who loved you starting to leave. You make games for the love and enjoyment it gives you and everyone who interacts with it's world. People give their time, attention, and hard earned dollars for a product when there are so many games that they do not have to support or give you that valuable commodity. Step back and really think about how this affects your company and make a decision money or enjoyable enthralling stories that change the industry because you are almost a shell of the once great Rockstar.

    Yesterday me and other players were attacked by a cheater. He blocked the exits in the store with chests and began to spawn all the playersYesterday me and other players were attacked by a cheater. He blocked the exits in the store with chests and began to spawn all the players there, and there were also chests, and players opened them and ordinary players do not know what kind of chests they are! Ban not wine players who are not to blame that they are trapped by cheaters whose mass is in the game and they have nothing to lose and they have accounts for cheating And ordinary players suffer and you ROCKSTAR do not understand who is right and who is wrong - your company sucks and your game is low for this down! It is not the wine gamblers who suffer from your consequences! Expand
