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.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 raises the bar for sandbox adventure games. It’s organic in a way almost unseen in any genre, creating an authentic open world that is as cohesive as it is compelling. This title will set the bar for action adventure games for years to come.

    Unquestionably 2018's best game, and an all-time open-world masterpiece. [Christmas 2018, p.89]

    Red Dead Redemption 2 stands shoulder-to-shoulder with Grand Theft Auto V as one of the greatest games of the modern age. It’s a gorgeous depiction of an ugly period that’s patient, polished, and a huge amount of fun to play, and it’s combined with Rockstar’s best storytelling to date.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't just a masterwork with an unparalleled attention in details and world development, but a real new milestone in its genre, capable of further shortening the distance between movies and games, but without sacrificing gameplay and complexity. A game that everyone should play.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 lives up to everything and more with what Rockstar Games have promised. More importantly, the gameplay is enjoyable and accessible, the story engaging and the characters are interesting, however what Rockstar Games have achieved is creating a truly interactive, immersive and massive open-world game that feels solid and you can almost imagine that you are part of this world.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 may not be perfect, but its minor shortcomings are like tiny blemishes on a stunningly beautiful face. In a way, they only serve as a reminder of how this world isn't made for perfection. Every single aspect of the game will put you into the very shoes of an outlaw roaming America with his gang as they try to escape the law long enough to make the money needed to disappear for good. It's an epic, memorable and engrossing tale which also elevates the open world genre to new heights with the brand new interaction system, a cast of memorable characters and a ton of high-quality content to play for a long time.

    Red Dead Redemption 2’s missteps are few. The autosaving system is a little bit cruel, leading you to replay failed missions not from a pivotal point, but often from the very beginning of the mission or the section; the game should have taken cues from Ubisoft’s Far Cry and implemented far more friendly checkpoint saves. And while horseback riding in this game is largely fantastic, it’s odd to spend so much time tapping a button just to create your horse’s pace. This is intuitive -- but it feels unnecessary at times, too. The entire Red Dead experience, though, feels fantastic overall.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 isn't a game that should be taken lightly. This is true in most of Rockstar's long list of games, which often overwhelmRed Dead Redemption 2 isn't a game that should be taken lightly. This is true in most of Rockstar's long list of games, which often overwhelm the player with their sheer size and mechanical depth. Red Dead Redemption 2, however, stands out as a pinnacle among masterpieces. You may, understandably, assume that I'm simply riding the "Red Dead hype wagon" but, unless the game drastically changes after the first 10 hours or so, this is certainly not the case.

    From what I've experienced so far, Red Dead Redemption 2 offers the player an unprecedented amount of options in what to do and how to tackle the, both optional and integral parts of the game. Fortunately these options do not overwhelm the player, but are instead revealed progressively, allowing you to first master what is already there. After several hours spent with the game I was still constantly being surprised by a steady stream of new features and added complexity to pre-existing mechanics.

    All this depth, however, wouldn't be worth 2 cents if it wasn't for the incredibly high degree of fine tuning and polishment that went into the game. The frame rate stays smooth and constant throughout the whole experience and, incredibly enough, so far I haven't encountered a single bug during my 14 hours of playing the game. Rockstar have certainly nailed the shooting mechanics, but there are also more discreet options for those who aren't completely certain that lead is the be-all end-all problem solver.

    To summarize: Red Dead Redemption 2 is a must buy for anyone looking for a deep and fleshed out experience, that gradually unfolds during many hours of game time. It's not a game that you can rush through over the weekend (though, admittedly, I myself might in retrospect have been a bit too hasteful in order to experience as much as possible in a short time window). If you're willing to put in the time however, Red Dead Redemption 2 is guaranteed to offer you a complete and thrilling experience, brimming with possibilities for the player to discover. If I have one complaint regarding the game it's that it didn't come out sooner.

    RDR2 WOW para mi de lo mejor de este año, buena historia, buen ambiente con hermosos paisajes y detalles de muy geniales a muy tontos y granRDR2 WOW para mi de lo mejor de este año, buena historia, buen ambiente con hermosos paisajes y detalles de muy geniales a muy tontos y gran variedad de cosas, llevo 103 horas jugadas y me falta por terminarlo al 100%. Este juego no es para todos, con esto me refiero a los que les gusta apuntar y disparar, todo rápido, en este juego hay que tomárselo con calma nooo es GTA y es el viejo oeste, es mas lento sobre todo al inicio y si eres de los que siguen la historia y no hacen nada mas que jugar las misiones principales, claramente sera aburrido, tienes muchas cosas secundarias por hacer, desafíos, cazar, encuentros con personas desconocidas etc. Claramente tiene fallos como todo juego, pero en un juego de este tamaño se perdona, por ejemplo los múltiples glitchs que hay, también el sistema de combate es un poco tonto pero se acepta y espero que el online sea igual de genial, sobre todo con tus amigos.

And that Animals and humans make footprints... that's just.. wow.. It took me 1min to get mind blown... I also like that they have a euphoria like physics... I'm never going to get tired of playing this game! Expand

    The best video-game in recent years..

    The visuals are jaw-dropping. Outdated controls. Realism. Objectives in missions feel repetitive
    The best video-game in recent years..

    The visuals are jaw-dropping. Outdated controls. Realism. Objectives in missions feel repetitive (like shoot bad guy, take (so on, so on) from A to B. Character development is pretty solid here. A saddening, tugging on your heartstrings ending.

    Overall, the best western game ever created.

Die Steuerung ändert sich andauernd. Die Menüs sind mehr als hakelig und unbequem. Viele Situationen sind nicht nachvollziehbar. Sinnloses umherreiten und vorallem zurückreiten.
    Instant kills durch Tiere ausserhalb des Bildschirmrands.
    Man wird mit Textboxen erschlagen links oben ne Meldung inne Mitte unten Untertitel, Rechts unten inne Ecke wird angezeit das ein Knop gedrückt werden. Unnötig nervig und kompliziert.

    Warum keine verdammte Syncro ? Definitv am falschen Ende gespart !
    looten ist extrem angsträngend. Warum wird das mitnehmen von einzelnen Waren begrenz ? Den Whisky kannst du nicht mehr tragen aber 3 Flaschen Rum schon.
    Was für komische Statusanzeigen habt ihr euch da denn einfallen lassen.. Kerne und Ringe, ganz toll.

    Ich laufe in den ersten Spielminuten durch eine Stadt, werde von sonnem Typen angequatsch, der haut mir eine rein - 15 Sekunden später hab ich ein 90 Dollar Kopfgeld, 90 Dollar... soviel habe ich im ganzen Spiel noch nicht gesehen... 90 Dollar. :D haha

    Zu oft, nervt und frustriert das Spiel einfach nur.. habe es in 4 Spielstunden bestimmt schon 10x ausgemacht, weil ich keine Lust mehr hatte.. oder Angst das der Controller im TV landet.

    Die Grafik ist sehr Hübsch... aber das wars... Online hat kein Inhalt, die Story is ne Katastrophe.
