Red Dead Redemption 2 Review | GameGrin

James Martin reviews Red Dead Redemption 2, writing: "I can tell you straight off the bat something that Red Dead Redemption 2 definitely isn’t: Grand Theft Auto in the “Wild West”. It seems to be that’s what people were expecting, but even looking back to Red Dead Redemption from 2010, the slow pace and meticulous attention to detail throughout every part of Red Dead Redemption 2 should really come as no surprise. But it’s Rockstar’s unquestionably stunning consideration of the smallest things that makes this game something truly special… if not without some strange choices."

I like the game. The detail is utterly staggering. That said the randomness and touchy nature of the NPC's is starting to wear thin. They immediately start shooting. I walked into the sheriffs office, and suddenly I was wanted with a $10 bounty. For nothing. I wish you could control the level of edginess of the character as it is detracting from the game.

This game is 11/10 in story, characters and music alone. Gameplay was fine, but could have been better.

gamegrin need to get those clicks in eh?

To be fair, it's not much different than the average user score on metacritic.

That's because of all those PC fanboys who hate Rockstar because they dont put their games on PC, and all the kids who played GTA5 expecting some kind of crazy playground, but instead we got this amazing emotional story-driven experience. People cant appreciate stories these days.

Which only serves to show how hated by the internet crowd a game is.

You can't just put that down to the PC crowd. To counter your argument, I could say that the only reason people are giving 10's is because they are Red Dead or Rockstar fanboys.

Everyone has opinions. If someone said a 8/10 for this game I'd say that's perfectly valid too. The story could have been trimmed down and controls can feel odd at times. Personally I give it a 9/10 and would say it's R* best game to date but it certainly isn't perfect.

With all that said this article clearly is after clicks. The review comes late, is one of the lowest scores from the critics and is from a not well known site. It's not hard to work out.

Did you read the review, or just scroll to the score and get outraged?

There are plenty of complaints about this game. If you don't agree, fine, everyone has different opinions.

"I can tell you straight off the bat something that Red Dead Redemption 2 definitely isn’t: Grand Theft Auto in the “Wild West”

Good because I find that GTA v is very overrated.
