Good game and and fun but mature content

This game is based on cowboys. There is nudity when Arthur (the main character) is taking a bath, nothing is shown. There is also language like s**t f**k and more. Overall, great game but for adults

Fine for 9 and up

For kids, this has no sex/nudity, the only inappropriate time does not even occur in the main story, it’s only if you go to a hotel and get a deluxe bath where a clothed woman washes your legs, which there isn’t even a point doing, a little bit of language but nothing like gta, and there is only some characters that swear, most do not.

It's over exaggerated

This game is great though there is swearing and violence but if your mature you can handle it. There is a reason to be good if you kill more people you lose honor the worse your honor is the harder it is to play the game due to increased prices. The nudity is just, horse genitalia. It really is a awesome game and, if you think your kid is mature enough this game is for them. The gang members due help each other out in tough situations in most parts of the game you can gain honor by helping people out.

Much more appropriate than other Rockstar Games titles

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a great game. In some parts it can get a little gory and violent but, nothing too bad happens. If your child plays Call of Duty and is mature enough to understand that you should never commit any bad actions that you can in do in game in real life then this game should be fine. You can smoke, eat cocaine gum, and get drunk. There is not much sexual content or nudity which is surprising due to it being made the same company as GTA. Overall this is a great cowboy game that should be fine for anyone about 11 or up.

Perfect for a 13 Year Old with Maturity

Red Dead Redemption II is appropriate for a 13 year old with enough maturity to handle the intense situations. The game does feature violence and frequent swearing but if your teen has the maturity to handle it there would be no need to worry. Additionally, players will have a choice to be a honorable outlaw, helping out local citizens. The game promotes teamwork, love, and loyalty. In conclusion, Red Dead Redemption II would be a suitable fit for your teen!

Overthinking parents please read this.. You need this

This game is one of the best console games in the 21st century. Great grafics. Great gameplay. Great story. There isn't "TOO MUCH VIOLENCE" IT'S GAME. If u play Fifa it doesn't make you a professional football player. If you play Batman it doesn't make u a superhero. Why would this make you a drug abusser, a killer, a robber....... THE BEST F**** GAME.. there is literally no sex in this game. Overexagerated Pricks. If you think that the impersonation of women is bad. It's because the game is set in the late 1800, that's how it was. There is no sex scenes. No available prostitution. There are scenes with domestic violence but they are there so you can save them.

Best game of 2018! In many's opinion.

I love this game. Not just as a video game, but also as a movie. Everything about it is great. Sure it may be a little violent but its around the same as pg 13 movies. The idea that the minimum age to enjoy this masterpiece is 18+ is laughably crazy. Another great thing is that this game has good diversity and female representation like never before in a Rockstar game. I don't even think the reviewer believes that, but put that so he could keep his job. Play this game and have fun with it and let the experience change you for the better.

An absolutely Amazing experience!

I’m 11 years old and have to say that this game is outstanding for pre teens. It simply teaches the consequences of crime and the punishments you can receive if preformed. The game is “NOT” bad! The story revolves around a gang searching for a safe place to hide out after a failed robbery, but while the gang koves from place to place they successfully save 9 families from freezing to death. During the course of the story the gang helps others while also robbing/killing some people. The only reason, though, the gang does this once again is to provide food for the settlers they saved. By the end of the story the main protagonist realizes that crime, no matter what, is bad while the leader slowly loses faith. The ending shows redemption and why never to commit crime. But... there are a few scenes where evil is presented. In one scene a gang memeber runs into a house and murders a family just to get his back while you stand outside and listen. Another scene shows the gang leader go into a house and kill a mothers 23 year old son off screen. The mother shouts in distress as the gang drags her away. If your child is mature enough to understand the point of the story and the innocence of the ending, then keep the game away. But if your child loves fun gameplay (you spend most of your time doing non-violent activities) and a great story, This is a game to buy. Also keep in mind that there is some foul language such as Sh*t, A**, H*ell, and around 4 uses of F*ck in the entire 66 hour long story. I hope this helped out.

Not that bad

I am a kid that has played the game for about 4 hours and I Can say it is not that bad. There is no sexual content and no drugs. Violence can be avoided by using revolvers.

Very good, but on the mature side.

I think that this game is for 13 year olds and up, unless your child is a mature 11-12 year old. It is probably not suited at all for ages 10 and under. There is quite a bit of swearing and alcohol/drugs in this game, but no human nudity. The closest thing to nudity is horse genetallia. You can also skin animals, just like hunting in real life. However, if you are an animal lover, I would not recommend this.

My new favorite and the best game I've ever played.

This is the greatest game I've ever played. It has so much detail, so much to do, so much fun, it is amazing all in all. But not for kids. It isn't as bad as the GTA series, but still rather bad. You're weapons range from knifes to dynamite. You can kill animals and humans alike. Rifles and pistols leave bloody bullet wounds. Knifes leave stab wounds. Shotguns and dynamite can be used to blow off limbs and even cause heads to explode in gory and realistic fashion. You can use Gatling guns with similar results. You can beat people to death. You can hogtie people and throw them into fires/off cliffs or feed them to animals. You can run people over with horses or trains. You can witness events such as public hangings and amputation of limbs. But killing humans is usually optional, unless you're doing a mission where you have too, and if that happens they're either criminals or you're defending yourself or your friends. Most violence is much different from a Call of Duty WWII, but that game is the most graphic of the series. You can hunt and skin animals. You can find scenes of torture and death. I've seen one of a guy hanging from the bottom of rail tracks torn in half with intestines hanging out and lots of carnage of the ground below, along with his head severed pinned to the log with a note in his mouth. You do have the option to rob stores, banks, trains, and people. Some women are depicted as prostitutes, but no actual sex is seen. Some cleavage. Lots of swearing. F*ck, sh*t, [email protected]@rd, @$$, [email protected], hell are used frequently. Use of the N-word given the time this takes place in. You can get drunk, smoke cigarettes/cigars, and chew cocaine gum. You can buy gold for the online edition with real money. You can help people in the game or kill them. You can talk to strangers in the online mode. This is the greatest game I've ever played and highly recommend for mature teens and up.

Red Dead 2 is amazing.

Rockstar really outdid themselves this time. This game was really worth the eight year wait. but the game is way too graphic for kids.

why you should play it

I have played this game. This story is very good and made me cry in some parts and I cried hard and laugh in scenes so hard around the game. It's wild west and you can learn about life at this time. the game is super realistic and the npcs act like real humans. Their are moments where Arthur and other characters talk about the good of life. Expect money and smoking and violence. The game is a beauty . It teaches about animals and plants and has over 300 Easter eggs and references and interesting stuff. I have been playing rated m games since 2012 and now i'm in 7th grade. People that talk trash about these games are idiots and missing out. Forget fortnite. People only say shit and damn and other stuff. Yes Micha can be racist but the people he is racist to beat the crap out of him.

Fantastic game about the aspects of a dying west

Honestly an insanely immersive game here. There is a tiny bit of nudity, but not that much honestly. Bit gory, but the incredible story and the fantastic world is unparalleled.

BUY THIS NOW!!!

This game is amazing on so many levels. You would love this game if you like a good story. The only things you would possibly need to worry about is blood and gore (which is hard to notice) and language (if it bothers you). Even though some of the reasons why this game is rated M is because of sexual content, nudity and drug use, there is no nudity in the game and at all and there is very infrequent sex talk/jokes which is easy to miss and the only drug use is characters smoking which wouldn’t not be expected because it is a western game.

Great for ages 9 and up.

I'm surprised that the game is rated 18+.
