Horizon Zero Dawn is a perfect proof, that if you give developers creative freedom and time, it will get you a sweet reward. For fans of action adventures and wonderful worlds Horizon is the obvious choice. [Issue#272]
While the main storyline was lacking, there's a reason good world-building is critical to good fantasy, and like I said, this game nails it. I loved about the game was the way it used Aloy's Focus to force you to examine things. Each new area becomes a crime scene as Aloy examines and analyses what's been left behind. It's a clever way to blend the idea of technology into this otherwise primitive world.
Overall an excellent game, from its world design, gameplay, and characters.
Story is generally easy enough to follow, but expect LOTS of reading if you really want to get into its lore and backstory. It was overshadowed by BotW releasing around the same time, but I found it to be just as enjoyable.
Guerrilla Games did it. Horizon: Zero Dawn is one of the best Open-World games of this generation. It's a wonderful action-RPG set in a vast and unforgettable universe, with a solid (but conventional) plot and - most of all - challenging gameplay.
Even though it's not without its issues, Horizon is an excellent title and a must have for all PS4 owners. It offers a refreshing open world environment, a compelling and mysterious story, a fantastic main character, and innovative gameplay. Not only is it one of the best action RPGs I've played in a while, it's also one of the best games I've played in a while. Even now, after the credits have rolled, I'm still having a great time trying to fully complete the game. Horizon is a truly special experience, and it's one that even non-RPG lovers need to have.
Horizon Zero Dawn is disappointing. It has a story that I struggled to care about (complete with massive expository dumps—yay), a bland protagonist, and overtly repetitive and constraining missions that worked against its open world sensibilities. When Horizon Zero Dawn hit its rare strides—from its gloomy Cauldrons to traveling across its sprawling vistas—it only made me wish the rest of the game were as worthwhile.
A decent enough story and world to complete the main story and explore with enjoyment, but it is nothing outstanding, and there are plenty of problems beside. Side quests are poor, graphics are jittery and full of strange artifacts, which gets in the way of an otherwise beautiful world. Gameplay is good at what it does, but what it does isn’t that interesting to begin with. This is a game worth playing if you have nothing better to play.
This game looks amazing at the beginning. General design is good, the world is stunning but it ends here. The gameplay gets boring really fast, I already knew I'd drop this game after a few hours, I lasted for 5 before closing it one last time.
Characters are boring, gameplay is ripetitive and not excting at all against monsters, while is simply horrible against humans. I tried to give it time but couldn't even reach level 12.
Overrated for sure. The story is so cliche and combat **** because there is zero counter to enemies. Good graphics but soulless game. Texture popin is so close to the character that it is annoying. Aiming **** on console.
