    Horizon Forbidden West is a masterpiece. The foundation that Horizon Zero Dawn has laid is improved in every way, whether it's gameplay or story. We have amazing graphics, charismatic characters, an intriguing plot and an addictive, varied and challenging gameplay.

    If you’re willing to take your time and explore through the ruins of a fallen society, where every other corner is teeming with machines that you’ll need to be at the top of your game to destroy, then Horizon Forbidden West is an incredible game and a world that we wanted to return to many hours after the credits rolled.

    Horizon Forbidden West is the perfect evolution of the saga. It doesn't add many pieces to its gear, but the ones it does add are so subtle that they enhance the experience considerably. Guerrilla has built a world in which it is a pleasure to get lost thanks to its infinite possibilities. A universe that has its own personality and that comes for an Aloy that is even more courageous and dedicated to become a complete inspiration.

    Horizon: Forbidden West builds on the solid foundations of Zero Dawn and does not only expand them, but stabilizes them by fixing a number of unnecessary shortcomings of the first game. Fixing some annoying mechanics, reworking combat, exploring and side quests are some of the positive changes that will be appreciated especially by players who have found the open world of Zero Dawn boring.

    Horizon Forbidden West is a step above its fellow open world games because it goes out of its way to ensure that everything is worth doing, not just the main story. It's more of the same from Zero Dawn in a lot of ways, but with significant improvements across the board to create a generally superior experience. And while Guerrilla said that Horizon Forbidden West isn't being held back by being a cross-gen game, it will be exciting to see what the studio can do when building a Horizon adventure from the ground-up for PS5. In the meantime, Horizon Forbidden West is another must-play PlayStation exclusive.

    Horizon Forbidden West is, in many ways, a sensational journey. You can definitely tell that Guerrilla Games listened to a lot of the criticisms Zero Dawn received and devoted themselves to fixing them. The result is a game that reinforced the strengths of its first installment and complemented them with a world that feels bursting with life, genuinely exciting combat, and small improvements that deliver an overall experience with fewer bumps in the road. Sadly, several design decisions ended up being a string that limited its potential. Forbidden West could have been a generational impact, but it will pass as just another great open-world adventure.

    Horizon Forbidden West fails to live up to its predecessor in just about every way. While the world and its many new machines are stunning, the experience is bogged down with confusing design choices and variation for the sake of variation - making Aloy's newest adventure one to forget.
