    Horizon Zero Dawn truly expresses how videogames nowadays are an art form, if not only through its visuals and storytelling, then certainly through its expertly incorporated combat. A glee-filled experience through and through.

    It’s one of the best games of the last few years – but the PC version especially is a sight to behold, so much so that returning players should absolutely consider double-dipping for the PC version of Horizon. It really is that much of an upgrade over the PS4 version. Not only do the graphical and technical improvements make the world much more exciting to explore, but the increased framerate and ability to use a mouse elevate the combat to new heights. The PC platform allows Horizon Zero Dawn to be the best game it can be.

    Horizon may be slowly getting older, but it hasn’t lost any of its exquisite qualities. This is still a brilliant action adventure in an original open world filled with well-crafted stories. And, thanks to the PC port, it looks (and moves) better than ever before.

    If you don't have a PS4 or just want to enjoy the game on PC with better graphics, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition would be perfect for you.

    Despite some of my qualms with the production and PC port quality, I highly recommend picking up Horizon: Zero Dawn for the PC. Yes, there is some risk of encountering the issues that others have seen, but fortunately, Steam's generous refund system serves as a comforting protection against wasted money. Overall, it's an easy recommendation for all cohorts of gamers. Players who didn't have a PS4 can experience a well-crafted world with a captivating story to flesh it out, and those who already played it back in 2017 might still enjoy the PC version's improved visuals and frame rate. This is a great way to refresh your memory on Aloy's adventures before the sequel releases in 2021 for PS5.

    On a modern computer, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition looks absolutely stunning, thanks to new visual options - more frames per second, adjustable FOV... There are some technical flaws, but it doesn't prevent from enjoying Aloy's Adventure and its magnificent post-apocalyptic open world, even if it feels a bit redundant and not that refreshing in terms of stage work and dialogues.

    A very workmanlike open-world game. Great to look at, competent overall, and charming when it tries something new, but formulaic when it doesn’t - which is most of the time.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Alloy is a great character and is perfect for a game like Horizon Zero Dawn. The concept is so good, map is beautiful and has so much to explore. For me the death of rose was one of the most emotional moments. Playing is ultra difficulty is even more fun. Guerilla games have truely made a masterpiece. A game that I will always remember and can't wait to play the sequel. The progression system keeps pulling me back to play it more. Expand

The world and the side quests were interesting to go through, but the balance is terrible, one of the worst balance in any game I've seen, the side quests and characters could have been more and the ending of the game upset me, the story is completely untold. I hope there will be a sequel to this game with the same interesting segue and fixing all the bugs. At the very beginning of the game's release on PC there was a problem with the launch and optimization, because of this I give the game a 7 and not 8 points. Expand

    Feel the same way about this game as I did when I played it on PS4 a few years back, it is a gorgeous open world that does not do anythingFeel the same way about this game as I did when I played it on PS4 a few years back, it is a gorgeous open world that does not do anything spectacularly well, but manages to always look gorgeous and provide newer players with a substantial amount of (albeit repetitive) content to entertain them for hours. I still hold the feeling that this game was massively overrated and there are so many RPGs that do it better, but it does get a few points for its originality and world design.

    Unfortunately, the optimization on PC is absolutely dreadful, and downright laughable at times, which is why it sits at a 3 for me. Framerate issues, animation issues, bugs and visual glitches, runs poorly on Nvidia hardware, and maybe a few other issues I have not read about yet. This is another case of a console port that was rushed to market for the sole purpose of extra revenue. DO NOT BUY it in its current state. Developers need to do better to earn the money from the PC market, these kinds of efforts are unacceptable.

    Are you a'h'uel tam? 6 дней прошло, патча нет, новостей о патче нет, предварительной даты нет, обновлений нет. Выкатили новость в твиттере,Are you a'h'uel tam? 6 дней прошло, патча нет, новостей о патче нет, предварительной даты нет, обновлений нет. Выкатили новость в твиттере, мол работают над патчем, ЕЩЕ БЫ ВЫ НЕ РАБОТАЛИ. ИНДИ разработчики делают подобные патчи за пару дней, сейчас прошла почти неделя, НЕДЕЛЯ КАРЛ. И это крупная студия? И это бывший эксклюзив от Сони? Это самый настоящий плевок в лицо от разработчиков. Я всех призываю обрушить оценку игры до минимума, пока вы будете жрать ****но с ложки они дальше будут так поступать! Самое ужасное, что не объявлены сроки, многие купили игру и безответно ждут новостей. Не позволяйте разработчикам Вас игнорировать! МЫ НЕ БУДЕМ РАБАМИ Expand
