    The Frozen Wilds is more of Horizon Zero Dawn, and that is in no way a bad thing. The expansion offers some closure on certain story threads whilst telling a self-contained tale that’s perfect for this ruined world you find yourself in. There’s little in terms of mechanical upgrades to the game, but Horizon never needed that in the first place...If you’re craving 15-20 hours adventuring in a world crafted by artisan game designers, you can’t go wrong with The Frozen Wilds, which is easily one of the best DLC packages on offer this year.

    If somebody had asked me a few months ago how to make Horizon Zero Dawn even better, I probably would have said "just give me more". That's exactly what I got with The Frozen Wilds. My biggest criticism of The Frozen Wilds is that the story does not match the main game.

    As much as I loved all the activities that Wilds provided on the side, Thunder’s Drum continued to call my name. Centering the world around the mountain provides compelling motivation to keep pushing through the main quest. I was equal parts interested in advancing the central storyline and in exploring all the side content that Wilds had to offer. That’s a rare, and joyful, feat for an open world game to achieve. Wilds pulls it off.

    Horizon's DLC Frozen Wilds feels like a very natural extension of Zero Dawn. The new snowy location markedly separates it from the rest of the game, and powerful new gear gives you more than enough drive to discover the region's secrets. It's not a dramatic step forward – but if you loved Zero Dawn, then this is a snow-capped version with more addictive, beautiful and barmy adventures in a world you'll happily be buried in for hours. Roll on the sequel!

    This addon can defend its existence with its head raised. The Frozen Wilds add on comes only with little improvements and a weaker story than the original game. But it does not lose the excellent gameplay and in 10-15hrs gametime it offers a selection of the best.

    Don’t venture into the Frozen Wilds expecting clues as to the nature of Horizon Zero Dawn 2, then - in truth this is barely HZD v1.2. Instead, revel in a sizeable single-player, story-driven expansion that harks back to a time before season passes, loot boxes and downloadable dress-up kits, and which also provides an excellent excuse to revisit one of the year’s most enjoyable games.

    The Frozen Wilds introduces many poorly-designed elements which make it a lesser experience than its brilliant base-game.

    Magnificent as all hell and perfectly weaves itself into the HZD narrative and feels like a seamless continuation of the world we've beenMagnificent as all hell and perfectly weaves itself into the HZD narrative and feels like a seamless continuation of the world we've been given. An absolute must-play alongside the main campaign, and my favorite part about it is that it doesn't lock itself behind an invisible wall until a certain point is reached -- you can access it anytime at all. It's easily the most satisfying piece of DLC I've played in a long time...and I hate DLC so take that as you will. Expand

The story gives you a little more background on what is happening with the machines and how they were created. Graphics still look amazing, controls are tight and feels good to shoot that bow again at giant animal machines. Some fun side missions and interesting NPCs. HZD is definitely my game of the year for 2017! Expand

If you enjoyed the main game then it’s definitely worth purchasing The Frozen Wilds. Much more challenging than the main story. I played it during my second play through on Ultra Hard NG+ and it was a very rewarding experience. The final boss is no joke! If you’re playing HZD for the first time, l recommend playing on a higher difficulty. Next for me is Assassin’s Creed Origins! Expand

Pros: DLC Is challenging (it's like playing hzd on ultra hard to me), new weapons are interesting, setting looks gorgeous, side quest are fun. The So-So:, hard to see sometimes during night and snow, challenge can feel overwhelming sometimes compared to original. The Cons: story mirrors that of original in almost every way, only two new monsters, banuk aren't as interesting as they look. To end, it's a good dlc but treat this as a by the book dlc, and not expect anything mind blowing. Expand
