    I'm a Grey Beard

    I'm a grey bearded 40+ year old gamer who remembers when Atari's Pong first dropped and I gotta tell you that this is the best game I've ever played. This game is an accomplishment of effort and creativity. Thank You Roc... Read Full Review

    Magnificent

    What a game. I was unsure if it would be good (was expecting a sequel, not a prequel), but it is fantastic. The lack of fast travel (you can do it, but it is not easy and not obvious), made the immersion even more enj... Read Full Review

    A Westie modern eighth generation golden boy that will be a future classic!

    This was the first Rockstar game that I have owned. I got it as a Christmas 2018 gift and it took seven months for me to beat it's whole story driven playthrough! It has a lot of mechanics that require you to take care o... Read Full Review

    Red Dead Redemption 2 has a beautiful world and a stunning game

    I had never played Red Dead Redemption (1) but I had heard so many good things about it that when Red Dead Redemption 2 was announced I couldn’t help but be excited for it. The commercials for the game looked like... Read Full Review

    Great game, must play, minor flaws

    There's not much point in writing a review for a game that almost everyone's played, so here are the main points:Good (but not great) story. What really shines is the character development, though. Keeps you invested not... Read Full Review

    No words.

    This game is a straight 10 out of 10. Only missing a better online but, ay, it's still a beta by the time i'm writing this so. All the low-score comments in this website were wrote by some old guy just trying to ruin ... Read Full Review

    The grittiest and most authentic depictment of what the Southern US was/is and heck of a game while immersed in it.

    Coming virtually out of thin nowhere with this huge slice of wish fulfillment, Rockstar delivers the goods and more with this excellent prequel to the hit PS3 Red Dead Redemption. This is easily the biggest game of the y... Read Full Review

    This game was a huge disappointment.

    Sorry, but I'd rather be playing Red Dead Redemption, or even Red Dead Revolver, both of which are infinitely more fun than this turd. From the writing to the gameplay, and even the so-called "voice actors", this game su... Read Full Review
