Red Dead Redemption 2 is of course on everyone's lips right now, and the easy consensus among critics and fans alike is that it's yet another rich, meticulously-crafted open-world experience from the crowned kings of the genre, Rockstar.
However, that doesn't mean it's perfect. Not by a long shot.
There's already been a decent amount of blow-back from some fans frustrated by Rockstar's design choices throughout their western epic, and as ludicrously entertaining as it is, it clearly could've been even better with some fairly simple changes.
It's not always easy to concede a game's flaws when you're madly in love with it, and while there's little doubt that RDR2 is one of the best games of the current generation if not beyond, it's also not above being called out for some of its more baffling mechanics and developmental decisions.
Though it'll be a while before the game's honeymoon period wears off and fans can more "objectively" assess its merits, these are the most apparent gripes from spending almost 40 hours with Rockstar's latest opus...
