  1. Gameplanet

    11 November 2018

    Despite stumbling at the very beginning Red Dead Redemption 2 cements Rockstar Games’ place at the very top of the games industry. It’s been eight years and well worth the wait. Read more

    • The best open-world to date. Excellent story-telling and presentation. A real sense of exploration and discovery.
    • Dull, plodding, and over-long opening chapter. No Performance Mode for PS4 Pro.
  2. Press-Start

    25 October 2018

    Red Dead Redemption 2 is a triumph in world-building, character craft and downright skulduggery. Being bad has never felt so good as Rockstar toe the realism line while still keeping their sharp, trademark tongue in cheek. Read more

    • The World Is A Miraculous Achievement, The Game Has Heart, Attention To Detail is Unrivalled, Stellar Performance

    Red Dead Redemption 2 has been a highly anticipated game for a couple of years now and it doesn't disappoint, the whole game and open world feels very real and alive, great action, side missions complemented by awesome voice acting, random encounters with strangers, wild life and story.

    A wide expansive world, interesting plot an engaging action. Become a bounty hunter, game hunter, cardshark or just plan on misbehavin' This game will take you back to the last days of the outlaw when the west had been won and civilisation was squeezing the frontier out. Read more

    It has lots of stuff to do and it is really well made, although it does still have rockstars signature clumsy combat mechanics. It is great for just doing random things and the storytelling is really good. The biggest criticism i have come across is the bounty/wanted system. Read more

  4. "Par Excellence"

    I'm a fan of the previous game so my opinion is a little biased, however, when you strip away the hat, boots and gunbelt, the systems that work in the background to create this open world experience should be applauded. Well done Rockstar. Read more

    Been waiting for a good game for ages, Far Cry 5 should have been it, but nope let down, THIS IS THE GAME PEOPLE, hours and hours of missions/side quests! Read more
