The endDeveloped by the creators of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption, Red Dead Redemption 2 is an epic tale of life in America’s unforgiving heartland. The game’s vast and atmospheric world also provides the foundation for a brand new online multiplayer experience. America, 1899. The end of the Wild West era has begun. After a robbery goes badly wrong in the western town of Blackwater, Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang are forced to flee. With federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, the gang has to rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. As deepening internal fissures threaten to tear the gang apart, Arthur must make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang that raised him. [Rockstar] Expand

    Amazing not only for Western lovers. No other game has probably offered so many options to express yourself in the open world, and at the same time did not have such an interesting, rough and moving story. A magnificent experience, with a slightly slower start. [Issue#291]

    Red Dead Redemption 2 tests the boundaries of interactive immersion. Few games look this good, play this well, and have this much to offer. It begs you to slow down, turn every page of its dramatic tale, and savor every last breathtaking detail. It challenges you to be prepared for anything, and make the right decisions when your choices matter most. Arthur Morgan is the lead, but the world takes center stage to pull you in. With a list of challenges left to finish and an online mode launching soon, we plan to spend a lot more time in Rockstar’s unparalleled recreation of the old west.

    A titanic videogame, a masterpiece that, like everything, will have passionate lovers and other players who will not get too caught up. Everything also depends on thematic genre and preferences. Maybe not everyone likes stories of 'Indians and cowboys'. But this interactive universe created by Rockstar tells a fantastically-constructed story and allows us to live a unique adventure. And for that reason, we believe that this production touches excellence. And for that, it establishes the first 10 in the history of IGN Spain. Good trip, cowboys!

    Imagine an arthouse movie with summer blockbuster production values, as if Terrence Malick had been given a Star Wars movie. Imagine if Ubisoft had made Gone Home. Like Arthur Morgan himself, Red Dead Redemption 2 is meditative, laconic, a slow burn, drawn out and unhurried, sometimes even morose, more concerned with characters than spectacle. Let us go then, it suggests.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 turned out better then we could ever have hoped for. Rockstar knows how to create a vast open world teeming with life, in which Arthur and the Van der Linde gang seek fortune and glory. A new standard for action adventure games has been established.

    With its amazing open-world, well-written story and deep characters, Red Dead Redemption II is a roller-coaster full of emotions. Controls may feel a bit clunky at times, but still: this is a masterpiece.

    Red Dead Redemption 2's evocative, often beautiful sense of place exists insofar as it is still convenient to the player, which harms some of the desperation and hardship the game means to convey.

You can play it without having played the first one but if you did play RDR1 then you will end up appreciating it even more after you had finished RDR2. The game feels really good tto play. The animations and physics are the best I have seen. The graphics are only rivaled by a few other games like Detroit: Become Human and God of War. Expand

    Es PERFECTO. Nunca me gustaron los juegos western, pero este me ha enganchado totalmente.
    Tiene mundo abierto, pero no es como la mayoría, sino que este está VIVO. Puedes seguir la historia principal, pero a la vez el mundo sigue a su bola y te pueden ocurrir cosas aleatorias y no programadas, como que te atraquen, o te ataquen repentinamente, o que alguien necesite ayuda y puedas ayudarles o perjudicarles o pasar de largo indiferente, y todo tiene sus consecuencias.

    Es tan inmersivo, que a veces cuando acepto una quest, me quedo tan absorto que 2 horas después me acuerdo que tenía que entregar esa quest!

Неспешность сюжета и геймплея в какой-то момент начинает бесить, но это забывается, когда ты доходишь до финала (имеется в виду не эпилог). Интересно наблюдать за становлением героя в процессе прохождения, красивые пейзажи, интересный открытый мир. Expand

The story is pretty good considering i found myself eager to see what happened next. The music was good, and even atmospheric at times. The only thing I can complain about is a certain story decision Rockstar made in the late game but I won't go into that cause of spoilers. All in all hands down my favorite title of the year. In my opinion I think it deserves the 97 for this gen console.

    I even thought it was good enough to play through a second time cause of the replay ability it has So many side quests, countless interactions, and a lot to work towards. I don't regret the 60 dollars I payed for it in the slightest, and I can't wait to see what multiplayer has to offer.

    Overall I think Rockstar outdid themselves on the story mode alone, I would recommend it to anyone and especially western lovers.

My horse does nothing other than run my into **** and try to get me killed and she refuses to jump over any obstacles and yet I just spent 5 ****ing agonizing hours riding on this stupid poor excuse of an animal trying to find a bear in "bear territory" and yet all of a sudden bears must have gone extinct because there is NO ****ING BEARS... WHAT THE ABSOLUTE **** IS THIS STUPID **** Why is it I can find a ****ing legendary animal in 30 seconds but I cant find a ****ing bear in 5 ****ing hours.
