Red Dead Redemption 2 received “universal acclaim” from critics, according to review aggregator Metacritic.
Game Informer gave the game a full 10 out of 10, writing: “Rockstar Games has outdone itself again with Red Dead Redemption II.

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. Even after finishing the lengthy story I can’t wait to go back and play more.” In another 10 out of 10 review, Electronic Gaming Monthly wrote: “Criticisms often come easier than compliments, but in the case of Red Dead Redemption 2, I am at a loss. This is one of the most gorgeous, seamless, rootinest, tootinest games ever made, and if you voluntarily miss out on it, you’re either not a gamer or in a coma.”
US Gamer gave the game 4.5/5 stars and said, “Is Red Dead Redemption 2 better than the first game? Very much so. Is Red Dead Redemption 2 perfect? No. Rockstar Games has crafted this huge, beautiful world with an attention to detail that’s astounding…Despite those small issues, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a fantastic game that should keep players satisfied for another eight years.” In its 9/10 review, GameSpot praised the story, characters and animation and said “Red Dead Redemption 2 is an excellent prequel, but it’s also an emotional, thought-provoking story in its own right, and it’s a world that is hard to leave when it’s done.
