    Where has this game been all my life!

    After 80 hrs on the main campaign and DLC on Normal and then, another 60 hrs on NG+ Ultra Hard mode, this is definitely the best open-world game for me so far. What I love about HZD is that it has a very good balance all around. Besides robot dinasaurs, tribe, and archery, I came into this game blind; I didn't even watch any of the trailers and boy I'm so glad I did! The story completely caught me completely by surprise (once you reach the "The Grave-Hoard" quest, everything will begin to tie together so be patient). Each side quest is different: each either gives you a different view of the main story line or complements it (rather than mindless random tasks for an NPC that has nothing to do with the main story). I like that the story doesn't have a clearcut right/wrong: each side has their own perspective. The collectibles (metal flowers, datapoints, ancient vessels, and vantage points) also give you more insights about the past. All the NPCs are have great personalities with decent back stories that I like them all. Your conversations with some NPCs vary depending on your dialogue with them and/or other NPCs at a certain order. The combat is smooth and fast-pace; I love the thrill of taking down different machines with various methods depending on their strengths and weaknesses (those hunting grounds are good boot-camp for beginners). I heard some complaints about melee combat but this is NOT the focus of the game: you are doing it wrong if you try to hack-and-slash a Thunderjaw, Stormbird, or Fireclaw/Iceclaw to death! You do need to level up and gather materials but as long as you do all the side quests and tutorials in the game, you'll never have to worry about these things (at least I never had to purposely go out of my way to farm for lv/materials at Normal difficulty, though you will definitely need to on Ultra Hard because items cost a ridiculous amount of shards). You can override machines and/or use them as your mounts or fight buddies. Last but not least, Aloy's sass is priceless! HZD is definitely one of the most visually-stunning game that I've seen on PS4, just look at the screenshots! I'm forever thankful to have photomode. The characters' mouth movements are not the best in the beginning, but you can see a vast improvements in the Frozen Wilds DLC so I'm not too concern about it if they were to make a second installment. I must admit sometimes I override these machines and spend a lot of time in photomode just to appreciate the effort that Guerrilla Games put into this game. p/s: Shards and Mods farming tip: go to the spot right above the Sun Ring that has 2 behemoths and 2 longlegs, then use your corruption arrows (if you can't override them yet) to have them kill each other and enjoy the loot.

    Great game but no masterpiece

    This is a great game but it is not the masterpiece that everyone claims. The start of the game did nothing to draw me into the story and I questioned myself if I really wanted to continue playing. However, as the game goes on and you start to understand what is going on I really started to love the direction the story was heading to. A strange mix of old weapons, clothing, and tribes along with all of the futuristic weapons and robots. However, towards the end of the game the story just dies down and ends, leaving you wanting more, which is surely to set up a sequel. This game, like most open world games nowadays, is filled with tons of time wasting filler. It took me around 40 hours to beat the main story and another 20-30 hours to finish the "dlc" and get almost every trophy. When really it should have took me less than half of that if it weren't for all the filler. Don't get me wrong, more content and a longer game is great, but not if a longer game is only longer because of filler content. Alot of the things you do in the game seems like direct rip offs of alot of other open world games, specifically the ubisoft titles. (Far cry, assassins creed) From climbing up machines to uncover the map to taking out fortresses. The fortresses are even set up almost identically like those games with an alarm that you can disable to prevent reinforcements from coming. The crafting system is extremely frustrating at times, trying to locate the specific machines or animals you need in order to craft certain items. You will go to where the machines/animals are suppose to spawn just for them to not spawn and you end up running back and forth looking for them for 30 minutes but then when you finally find and kill them the items they drop are random and they end up not giving you the items that you need to craft so you spend another 30 minutes finding and killing countless more until you get what you need. I'm not someone who normally looks up walkthroughs but in order to save me countless hours of trying to craft the items I wanted I had to look up videos for the best spots to farm with this game. With all that being said it is still a great game and I would highly recommend it to everyone, however it is not the perfect 10/10 masterpiece everyone claims.

    On a PS4 Pro and on a large screen, UHD display that supports HDR, this game has no equal. This game is a poster child for justifying upgrading a PS4 or TV or both. It is that good. The early parts of the game where your character and protagonist, Aloy, is a child gave me chills simply on the merits of its graphics alone. This makes the world feel very alive and helps to make up for very good but not great gameplay. The setting changes as you get into the game, so it is not all out in the wild also. There are “dungeons” (I use term loosely to avoid spoiling anything) (10/10 for graphics, atmosphere and setting) It has been described as an Action RPG, but it is really just an action game where you level-up and can spend skill points to improve abilities. With about 15 hours into the game and level 20, those abilities don’t really make for unique experience, and the game will play the same for just about everyone. In terms of gameplay though, it is derivative of a number of previous titles, but does carve out a niche with a few mechanics. At times it feels very much like Assassin’s Creed. Others like Far Cry 4. Then it feels like the Tomb Raider reboots and Witcher 3, and finally Metal Gear Solid V. There are creatures to climb to the top of to unlock locations on your map. You can hide in brush and whistle for enemies to come close and stealth kill. You can tag enemies from a distance to help with taking out a bandit camp and turning it over to your people. Story driven quest lines and choices that rarely have any impact though to how the game progresses, and often the conversations are monotone and bland. (8/10 for gameplay) Quest lines can be selected and unselected at will from main story-line quests to errands or side quests. The side quests so far are ok, but a lot of travel involved, and feels unnecessary. In the early game, travel by foot is preferred and most players will use as opportunity to get better at playing game, etc. However at mid game when it shows I have to go from one end of map to another, you still have to run or ride the first time to unlock fast travel. The story lines of the quests are very good, but not Witcher 3 good if that is the standard. (7/10 for Story so far) Equipment upgrades can be crafted, and the game allows you to create customized quest for regents needed to craft these updates. For example, an ammo pouch upgrade from 4 to 8 slots may name some metal shards and some skins or bones from a particular animal. Apparently, most rabbits in this game are invertebrates, as you may kill several before getting one with a bone needed for crafting. There are close to a dozen different pouches that can be upgraded 4 times each I believe, and I am still taking time to hunt for parts to upgrade. There is probably a merchant I can get them from, but overall just annoying. Perhaps there is later game equipment, but a lot of higher end rare equipment can be purchased early game and none feels unique so far. Unfortunate that these upgrades are available to the player from the start and a grind. Upgrades work like skill trees where you have to upgrade to each level one at a time. Why not just upgrade to level 4 pouch if the game tells me what I need, but you have to go through each one. Inventory cannot be sorted, and weapons/armor cannot be compared side by side. Hoping for patch. (5/10 for crafting and upgrades and equipment) This is not a fast paced game, but I suppose one could focus on the main story and get through faster. There are collectables and locations and other places to explore off the main story. I enjoy that, and one of the aspects that reminds me of the Tomb Raider games. There are items to find that give back story to the post-post-post apocalyptic world you are in, and I have had fun tracking down. Overall, very good game and hard to put down, but I do realize some may get bored with side quests, slow pacing, and grinding aspects. Amazing visuals that cannot be beat. (8.9/10)

    Well, you've seen the reviews from others and there is a reason why. I really don't have to say anything more than what others have already said. If you want a game that demonstrates HDR and all of the goodies of your 4k TV, this game is it. If you want a well-thought out and planned storyline, this game is it. If you want to see opportunities to continue on AFTER you have beat the normal mode, this game is it. It's an open world, which is incredible in itself. There are only a few places in the story where you are constrained, but even then you can abandon that quest and go off and do something else, though you'll depart from the story line - which is necessary for continuation. The character animation is incredible as well as the world. If you take the time to enjoy the storyline and not just blow through it like some can, you'll find an incredible background to this game. Once you beat the game on normal mode, never fear - more new options become available when you do hard modes - specifically, customization of your main character. So, they give you a reason to keep playing. I am still playing the game, although I have long since beaten it and the expansion, Frozen Wilds. I enjoy just going out and farming for items and fighting machines. I don't even ride mounts because they can move really fast and I want to enjoy the scenery by moving on foot. A game that will keep you entertained for many hours (days, months?), you will not regret this purchase. Now that it is $20 WITH Frozen Wilds, it's hard not to buy this game. If you don't own a PS4 Pro, this would be a great reason to invest in one now. I find the greatest fun is playing on the hardest mode - enemy health bars are removed, machines and wildlife are more susceptible to your presence (unless you have a stealth outfit), you take more damage, and you just can't be careless. There are some machines that will one-shot you if you take the brunt of their attack. A great feature of this game is the Photo mode, where you can take a picture of your character and enhance your photo shot with the many of the tools they give you (overexposure, aperture, time of day, etc.). This is just a gorgeous game to behold and a fantastic game to play.

    This game is truly overrated. The graphics for the environment are stunning, yes. The time flow--sunrise to sunset--is beautifully done. The rendering, shading and textures are all amazing. But that's really it. The characters are largely forgettable, and the animation used on them is inferior to that of the landscape. Although they LOOK okay, once they start talking, the realism is gone. The eyes are expressionless, emotionless. The characters themselves are difficult to bond with; their personalities have little depth or feeling. As Aloy, you become little more than an errand girl, getting called upon to find beads, hunt meat and talk to elders. You get sidetracked by these errands to the point that the lackluster plot and main quests get lost in the shuffle. I wonder if that was deliberate. Quests have to be activated, too, or you forget them. Game's got a bit of a learning curve, too. This is an okay title if you're looking for something with an openworld mmorpg feel, but if you want a truly story-driven game, various environments to explore and intense bosses fueling continuous action, this isn't the game for you. For those of us who like to immerse ourselves in the storyline while stylishly kicking some serious pixelated butt, this game is pretty much just pretty to look at. Replaying? Only if you've exhausted the rest of your game library.

    Received this on release day December 5. Started the game on the same night and it is amazing. The graphics are great. I have a PS4 slim and a Vizio HD smart tv 39 inch and it looks great, so you DO NOT need a PS4 Pro or a 4k tv to enjoy this game. I'm only about an hour and a half into the game and so far the cut scenes and game play dynamics are pretty easy to pick up - that being said, if you are like me and have never played a game like this, you might have a bit of a learning curve learning the controls since this game makes use of the directional pad, the touch pad, and the L1/L2/R1/R2/L3/R3 controls on the controller more than some games as it has several different menus you can pull up and access and many different controls/actions for the character. Talking about game mode - I chose normal difficulty, and so far in the tutorial section of the game it has not been hard, but that may change as I progress. There is a pretty clear explanation of the different difficulty settings when starting the game, and normal mode is described as a balanced game play with a decent amount of challenge, and I believe you can go in the options and change the difficulty while playing if needed, so do not worry too much about it. Definitely take a few minutes to familiarize yourself with the controls as soon as you get out of the beginning tutorial before you venture out into the open world. One thing is the game was loose in the case when I opened it, but it was fine, no scratches, and I have heard this is common with PS4 game cases even when you buy a new sealed game, but apparently the discs do not scratch easily. Make sure to take out the booklet insert and turn it over to get your Play Station Store redeem code for downloading the theme and the digital art book (THIS CODE HAS AN EXPIRATION DATE!!)

    Great price, right off the bat. You will have everything on the disc. As for the game itself, it makes a very good first impression to an open world game that is filled with an intriguing premise, some very solid gameplay, and some absollutely gob-smacking graphics and art directions. Its not a perfect game, the RPG mechanics are somewhat basic, although if you are the type of person who doesn't much experiences with RPGs, this is just the right amount of complexity for people who are looking for a more straightforward action game. However, for an action game, it attempts to be something different. It doesn't rely on traditional shooting or driving. There's archery, there's some melee combat, there is stealth involved, it allows for some creativity in how you approach enemies. It involves alot of traversal over land, some climbing. Your enemies can be very small, they can flank you, they have their own attacks, they can be big fellas that require you to be very alert and evasive. And then you can find yourself in a situation with a combination of enemies, both land, water, or in the air, and things can get really hairy and chaotic and you will need to use every single move and weapon at your disposal. Given its futuristic sci-fi premise, the fairly decent lore that the game establishes, you can tell that this game is the start of a very promising franchise. We need more games like this.

    First time playing, about 30 hours in and could easily see another 60+ with exploring and trying to collect everything. The story is unique, and really wants you to take your time discovering the world, but also allows a direct approach if that's more your speed. If you liked the most recent two Tomb Raiders, this game is absolutely for you; with similar game machanics and on a far more massive scale. Along with a few Mass Effect aspects. A post-apocalyptic survival, with fantasy elements woven around sci-fi and sentient machines. And for the first time, for me, there is a real fight or flight response. Some groups and specific creatures, you always avoid regardless of level; if only to spare your resources. ** NOTE: Outfits and Weapons included content** It is the same Deluxe content. You will get the added resources, tokens to trade for free to any merchant, for a treasure box, HOWEVER, the outfits and weapons tokens will NOT show up in your inventory, until past the open-world point. Be aware that you will have to wait and progress the main questline for the majority of items -- a difference from the Deluxe Edition to the Complete Edition) **Frozen Wilds DLC + Deluxe Content** It is within the same download disk for the game, only extra code is for the "Art of Horizon Zero Dawn" insert on the inside cover.

    An unexpected gem

    Horizon Zero Dawn portrays a well-realized world with a well-considered, well-written lore. It is a world which you will want to revisit, which is good because the complete edition offers more of the game by including all of the DLC. While a great experience, it's not perfect. Combat can get repetitive rather quickly, especially on the MUCH longer battles with tougher beasts. It doesn't help that the combat system isn't very engaging. The cover system is hit-or-miss, as enemies seem to be able to spot you in some cases while being oblivious to you in others. Also, if you strike from cover, even if the beast didn't see it, they often seem to be able to pinpoint your location with unreal accuracy. The open world, for as beautiful as it is, suffers from the same open-world sandbox conventions found in Far Cry, Assassins Creed, etc.. That is to say, climb a tower, unlock a map and all the markers, make your way to the marker OR follow a clearly marked trail. Repeat. This can get tedious if it's not your thing. And if you do venture off the beaten path, invisible walls are prevalent and numerous. Overall, a very good if not great experience. Still absolutely worth your time at under $20.

    One of this generations most solid and fun gaming experiences, hands down. Entirely original in its narrative, the game on the whole feels like a blend of Terminator and Jurassic Park, with gameplay similar to Tomb Raider. That comparison, like most, can be seen in many different lights, but by them I mean that you’ll run around as female protagonist Aloy, fighting off mysterious robotic dinosaurs in the future’s past. The story is solid and engrossing. Gameplay is tight and incredibly fun, with lots of choices at your disposal. This is probably one the most choice-oriented games you’ll play in terms of combat. The world is lush and full, especially with the complete edition that offers the Frozen Wilds expansion (on disc). Highly recommended for all types of gamers, as this is the type of game that has something to offer everyone. It is a lengthy game, even with just the story players are looking at 40-50 hours of solid gameplay.

    I got about 5-6 hours into this game, and i know that i've barely scratched the surface, but i just cant get into it. The combat is very dull and simple, just slow down time and shoot for the head on every enemy = GG. While i love the ability to slow time for lining up shots, i dont think that should be the main aspect of the gameplay, or really, the whole aspect. The melee combat is absolute crap. Maybe it gets better later on, but my goodness is it bad for the first few hours. The story hasn't gripped me, i do want to know what happened to the early humans and why there are nothing but robot dinosaurs left, but the story telling so far is very lackluster and boring. The dialogue feels stale and lifeless. Honestly the only thing i've enjoyed about this game is the huge, beautiful, open world. Some enemies are quite unique and interesting, but they can all be cheesed so bad it makes trying to actually fight them pointless. I hope that when i do return to this game i'm able to enjoy it more than i did, because it has a lot of potential, but for now this game is going to collect dust.

    We picked up this game, we were relying heavily on reviews and were thinking "why not? it might be fun." The graphics. The fluid gameplay. We werent only impressed, we were blown away. There are times in the game where we stop "playing" and just look around at the amazing job of lighting and the details. Whether you're into adventure, strategy, collecting, or just need a good time-killer, Horizon Zero Dawn is a gorgeously-rendered game with many different ways to play. The game is fairly intuitive, which is great as it focuses heavily on hunting and combat. (If only you could play cooperatively with friend....) The story mixes mechanical and organic for the enemies (and friends?) throughout and there is never a shortage of things to do with many quests, errands, side quests, tutorials, and collectible items and trophies. I highly recommend Horizon Zero Dawn. It would be a fun and addictive game at any price, but at under $20 now, it's a steal.

    Working full-time makes it so you cannot play video games as often as you would like or used to. Due to this, I am rarely buying AAA titles when they are first released and have an endless running list of games I want to try. I purchased this complete edition when it was running on sale and could not be happier. I've put in around 30 hours into the game and am still not to the expansion portion of the game yet and can tell why this game was mentioned in the GOTY category. The open-world and questing is reminiscent of Skyrim, while the combat system is immersive and entertaining. The only downside to this is I do get some motion sickness after hours of playing. I mean come on, there is nothing like taking down giant robot dinosaurs in a game that is actually great. If you haven't gotten around to playing this game yet, it is a must buy for any PS4 owner.

    When the argument comes around about which platform has the the best library of exclusive games on it, this game is one of the great examples of how Sony really want to own the crown of this generation of consoles. From story to gameplay, cinematics to graphics, this title has it all. With a phenomenal lead character and great voice acting, this experience makes you feel a part of the world and not just a person....playing a person. Convincing as it may be, I really recommend this game to anyone who has yet to experience it and owns a PlayStation 4 - especially with its recent permanent price drop. What. A. Gem. My only gripe is that on the PlayStation 4 Pro, the performance mode does not allow this title to reach 60fps. It seems it’s either locked at 30fps or 4K resolution. So, if you own a Pro and had thought this will boost fps, it only does so by making sure it rarely dips below 30fps.

    Horizon Zero Dawn grabbed me from the opening cutscene and I was hooked the second the main theme and title came onscreen. I just knew I was in for something special. If you don't enjoy open world games and Ubisoft-style map markers you might not enjoy this game. But if you don't mind those things then there is a lot for you to sink your teeth into. The world they've built here is very interesting, following the story to its conclusion was a blast. The music is incredible though the combat and stealth tracks can get a little repetitive. The combat is nice and fluid, easy to get used to, GET THE TIME SLOWDOWN WHEN AIMING THE BOW SKILL FIRST! It'll make the combat so much better. The machines must all be seen to be believed, they are stunning. The DLC is quite meaty and for this low a price you're getting a lot of bang for your buck, I'd recommend giving this game your best shot.

    Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition is absolutely worth playing, no doubt, but for me, there are some game play issues that prevent it from being perfect. One of those issues being dealing with the camera while battling some of the more quicker and powerful robots. You're dealing with the camera looking at one direction, while a robot is shooting from the opposite direction. Also, the decisions of some of the enemies is questionable. In one minute, the robot is tearing me from limb to limb...but then they lose sight of me and go back to their default position, despite being in a very small area. Thanks, I guess? Regardless, it's a very good game and worth playing. Ashly Burch's and Lance Reddick voice acting is phenomenal! Beautiful graphics and a very intriguing plot! Much credit to the writers and directors for employing a diverse cast of characters.

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started Horizon: Zero Dawn, but by the end of the story, I couldn't wait to continue exploring this fascinating world. A post-apocalyptic setting is nothing new, but the fact that this takes place after such a setting and sees humanity really resettling and forming back into civilizations was very interesting. Some players may be disappointed to see that it's not a full RPG, particularly considering there are no story choices, but I actually loved that, as it only used the RPG elements that I particularly like in games, such as skill trees. For $20, getting the full game, Frozen Wilds expansion and a few extra goodies is an absolute steal and one that I can't recommend enough for those that own a PS4.

    I didn't know what to expect but this game seemed like a lot of fun, similar to open world games like Assassins Creed Origins. If you've ever seen the show The 100, this kind of reminds me of it. A good mix of futuristic tech with simplistic survival...with robotic dinosaurs. Who can say no to dinosaurs of any kind?? Right from the opening scene this game has stunning visuals and the concept of the game and story are very well done. It's a lot of fun to run around collecting things in order to upgrade weapons and other stuff since the environment never gets boring and there's always something to do. I would absolutely recommend getting this game if any part of you thinks it would be fun. Trust me, you'll like and get addicted to it. I don't play a lot of games but this is one that deserves some attention. Doooo it!

    I received many great reviews from my friends about this game. However I am not sold. I have beaten the game, received Platinum Trophy and am left asking myself, "why all the hype?" Granted the game isn't bad. But it is just a copy and paste of so many other games put together. Granted it is the good parts of those games, without much of the bad. I feel that if it were not for the story, i would have been very disappointed with my purchase. I normally go into details with Sound, Graphics, Story, Replayability and so on. But in this case everything is just Ok. I enjoyed my time, but never found myself on the edge of my seat. I waited until a very deep sale to buy this, and so at the time of this review, anyone should buy it (as it probably won't go above 40 dollars at this point in time.

    Boy, did I underestimate this game. I'm fairly new to the PS4 world and I only have a couple games so far, including Horizon: Zero Dawn. I did my research about H:ZD beforehand and usually the 'open world' concepts turn me off, but my love for strong female protagonists in storylines won me over this time. The game is brilliant, to say the least. It's beautiful to look at. The combat is simple to understand, but challenging when it calls for it. The open world isn't too overwhelming, because your quests usually don't reach more than 5 or 6 at a time and when you 'activate' one, it shows you where to go. The story is interesting so far. Some of the writing is a little cheesy, but that's a minor con. Did I mention how beautiful this game is?
