Kallie Plagge
9 / 10 (PS4)

Push Square
Robert Ramsey
10 / 10
"Red Dead Redemption 2 is Rockstar's best game, and it's gripping from start to finish."

Ryan Meitzler
10.0 / 10.0
"Red Dead Redemption 2 may just signal the dawn of a new era for open-world games, and it's an experience that I have no doubt players will be investing tens (if not hundreds) of hours into its immense, deep world and completing its story full of action, suspense, and deeply investing character moments."

Xbox Achievements
Richard Walker
"A stunning, elegiac western that features some of Rockstar's best writing to date, Red Dead Redemption 2 is also the studio's finest open-world to date, handcrafted with real, tangible care and attention, defying the boundaries of what a video game can be. Arthur Morgan will also inhabit a special place in your heart, as a likeable, relatable rogue striving to find his way in the world."

Chris Carter
9.5 / 10.0 (PS4)
"Red Dead Redemption 2 is the epitome of ambition and like most things Rockstar, will meet the expectations associated with it. With all of the advancements since the last Red Dead and everything they've learned from Grand Theft Auto V under their belt, the series is in a better place, able to provide a more natural and less gamey world to explore."

David Meikleham
"One of the top three open-worlds of all time, and the best game Rockstar has ever made. An all-time Old West masterpiece."

Critical Hit
Darryn Bonthuys
9.5 / 10.0 (PS4)
"Red Dead Redemption 2 is a story of endings and new beginnings, of the birth of legends and the consequences that come with creating a myth. It's all wrapped up in an immaculate presentation, told over dozens of hours and adventures that leads to an inevitable conclusion: Red Dead Redemption 2 raises the bar for the sandbox genre and stands tall as the definitive western game of this or any other generation."
