    Potential to be something great

    |
    Posted .

    Horizon is a game I've wanted for a while, but it came out at a busy time for me. Right next to Breath of the Wild, so it kinda got knocked down my backlog peg until I finally snagged it for around $20. At that kind of price point, buy the game. No more review needed. But, ignoring price, there is some things that I see as positives and negatives to the game. Places where it could be so much more than it is, and places where it actually exceeded my expectations. The biggest place where my expectations were exceeded are performance and graphics. I play on a standard PS4, so I kind of expected some choppy frame rates here and there, and maybe some blurriness. But the game is for the most part, rock solid 30FPS and the graphics are gorgeous. Not just on the environment, but the characters as well. You can really tell the art department earned a major bonus and vacation here. I can imagine those with Pros and 4K displays are in for a treat. Gameplay-wise, I'm not as sold. There's plenty of approaches to combat, but the game also easily allows you to brute force everything. The game seems to wants a degree of resource management and stealth, but stuff is so plentiful, you can just go in blasting and walk out fine with fully stocked supplies. The difficulty will be what you make of it, but knowing the out of brute force is basically always there, it takes away a lot of tension that would otherwise be present when fighting a giant robot dinosaur. My other complaint is that the traversal in the game just isn't as free as it could be. For such a detailed open world, climbing is all done via convenient yellow moss and incredibly convenient hand grabs. All the climbing basically feels like autoscrolling. The game isn't as open as the world it's in, and that can be a bit disappointing. I also feel there's a bit of imbalance between Robot and Human encounters. I won't touch spoilers, but the story is very interesting. It certainly isn't perfect, and maybe I'm just cynical, but if you're familiar with sci-fi stories you'll probably pick up on whats happening pretty quick. The performances are stellar though, so even if you see the plot right away, it's still a fun ride. Even the sidequests, for the most part, have the same meat levels as main the story, so the game rarely feels padded at all. Easily a good recommendation, a solid exclusive for Sony, and I'm sure a franchise in the making. A single playthrough doing everything will range around 40 to 50 hours.

    One of the best open world games in recent memory

    |
    Posted .

    I thought this was a fantastic and eye-opening game with one of the best open world experiences in recent memory. First of all, it had a fantastic and unique setting, blending both a primitive, hunting world-view with a sci-fi aesthetic as well. In that it reminds me a bit of Far Cry Primal with a bit of Mass Effect. As a result, the combat, the bulk of the game-play was more interesting than usual because you're using primitive hunting weapons, like spears, bows and traps, to hunt machine animals that can be very powerful and can often one-shot or two-shot kill you. The graphics and visual look of this game is honestly I feel, the best I've ever seen on consoles. The Order: 1886 is the only other game that compares but that was a very linear game, while this was a seamless open-world game which is much more impressive in my opinion. Lastly, this also had a very compelling story. Like most open-world games that's not really the focus of what you're going to be doing, but it was surprisingly very interesting and poignant. This is a very impressive game, and one of the clear best of the year thus far.

    indie studio makes AAA game

    |
    Posted .

    Guerilla is not EA. they're not blizzard. they're a small European game company. responsible for making the killzone games, and now this beautiful game. The story is post-apocalyptic. animal-like machines populate the world. that's pretty much all you get at the beginning. the story is one of the best things about the game so that's all i will say on it. The gameplay is fluid, never overly punishing, but a level of challenging that remains fun, even if you die a few times. YOu hunt machines, use materials you gather from machine kills/plants to craft ammo, potions, etc. everything except armor, weapons, and weapon upgrades can be crafted. There are so many secret/hidden areas that you will spend many hours searching for because finding them feels rewarding. Even without the loot you get from them, finding a cache, or any other hidden objective feels like an accomplishment. Not because they're overly hidden, but because you figured out what to look for, or you made it through an obstacle course to the top. I highly recommend this game for fans of the Witcher 3, or any other open world game.

    Top three games for PS4 for me

    |
    Posted .
    Owned for 1.5 years when reviewed.

    Horizon Zero Dawn is a must own game if you have a PS4. Combat is amazing and complex, story is engaging, and the crafting and RPG elements are refined. The difficulty does ramp up rather quickly, but the learning process is fun, and there are a ton of side quests to help sharpen your skill. I would probably only rank God of War or The Last of Us higher than this game.

    I had no expectations at all for this game. First open world - the developers of Killzone (which I didn't like at all) - how could this be good? Anyways, I bought it because of all the good reviews and I don't regret a second. The only thing that could have been done better is the facial animations and voice acting. Not a big deal for me, but I understand that some of you guys are complaining about that. Could also have been added much more side-quests, there is few of them. Main story (+ some side) is 30 hour-ish, I completed the game 100% (platinum) in 40 hours. There could have been added a lot more to this huge world. I didn't feel attached to any of the characters tbh. The first few hours is perfect, but something is lacking after that.

    Best game I've played in years

    |
    Posted .

    I love this game - I'm about ten hours into it and still having a great time. HZD has a great story, interesting characters, and an intriguing post-post-apocalyptic setting in which humanity has reverted to a kind of pre-medieval setting, with tribal groups vying for territory and facing an onslaught of mechanical beasts that roam the land. The mechanical and biological creatures that you kill can be broken down into components that allow to craft or trade, and there is a fun element of stealth and strategy to the hunting. It's open world with a story you can progress as you like. Some have complained that this is an "SJW" propaganda piece, largely because the protagonist is a woman and the society she is from is led by an order of matriarchs. I personally don't find the game "political" at all, and most of these design and writing choices fit the world perfectly, and have historical precedent in many societies. Kudos to Guerilla Games for their great work!

    Polished, Pretty; Otherwise Fairly Conventional

    |
    Posted .

    I was very excited when this game was first unveiled. Crazy machine enemies, a bow-weilding main character, a huge open world to explore--what more could I ask for? It didn't hurt that the game is very pretty and polished either. However, for all the things the game does right, the developers didn't really trust the player to really take part in creating the fun, or, I guess, playing. What I mean is that, even though the game is open-world, there's very little room for any kind of creative approach to play. In pretty much every encounter or mission, you will tackle it the developer's way or you can take a hike. One small example of this is how the game deals with climbing. In some games (*cough* Zelda *cough*) you can shimmy up just about any surface provided you have the stamina. Others, like Assassin's Creed, are a little less free, but still allow you to make use of visible handholds to mount climb things that should logically be climbable. Other open world games are still more restrictive, only allowing you to climb certain kinds of surfaces or make use of certain kinds of repeating handholds (think Far Cry 4), while others let you climb anything with a reasonably shallow grade (Fallout/Elder Scrolls). In Horizon, Aloy can't get up a ledge any higher than her hip unless the developer has marked it with yellow paint or rope. There is almost invariably only a single way to climb up any vertical landmass or feature as well, which means that exploration boils down to walk to feature, circle looking for yellow-marked pegs or rope, then spend about a minute holding the stick pressed up. There's no skill and no imagination involved. They might as well have made climbing a quick cutscene like they made rappelling and ziplining. The one area where you, as the player, do have some control and creative freedom is in creature encounters. The enemies are varied and initially challenging to figure out. Their designs are also pretty amazing visually and creative in terms of function. That said, once you've fought a particular enemy a few times, you're not going to see anything new from them. In fact, once you've fought the first enemy, you've pretty much seen it all in terms of enemy a.i. All machines pretty much behave the same way. They spot you and then proceed to launch ranged attacks until they can close, then they'll screech and try to tackle you. Rinse and repeat. There are no enemies that wait under the water to drag you to your doom as a crocodile might or pick you up and drop you like an eagle. None exhibit pack behavior and try to swarm you with coordinated attacks. Also, everything from antelope robots to giant carnevores are equally thirsty to chase you down and kill you. It would have been nice to see a variety of enemy strategies based on their body type. Finally, and this might seem like a minor complaint to some, but I found the bow combat to be singularly unsatisfying. There's a nice variety of bows, each of which has its own ammo types, which was a nice touch. You can also tweak their stats via mods, which is also nice. Unfortunately, whether it's firing ab ice or an explosive arrow, every bow behaves essentially the same. There is no arrow-drop/arc whatsoever, much less windage, so you have no need to really aim your shots. Just put the crosshairs where you want the arrow to go and squeeze the trigger. It's more like firing a slow-reloading sniper rifle (though even these have bullet drop in most modern games) than aiming. In short, it has the least satisfying bow combat in any game I've played. Seriously, Far Cry 4, a game which is primarily a shooter and came out towards the beginning of the generation, completely spanks Horizon in the arena of making its bows feel like bows while also being fun to use. The upshot is that, despite the creative setting and wonderful visual design that defines its open world, Horizon: Zero Dawn plays very much like your average linear third person shooter, right down to the glowing "you can climb here" single paths to any objective.

    An Unforgetable Journey

    |
    Posted .

    I was a little late coming to this party, but I'm glad I came around. HZD brings together amazing gameplay, gorgeous visuals, and a compelling, mature story. From the brief intro video, along with the hints at combat, stealth, and strategy to come, to the driving storyline, and ultimately, to the epic final battle, HZD kept me glued to my PS4 from start to finish. It was one of those games that left me sleep deprived because I wanted to complete "just one more mission." Although there are some filler "fetch" side quests to keep you busy, the main quest is always there to drive things forward. While is possible to acquire every skill, there's plenty of variety in the path depending on play style. If there's one complaint I have, and it's a very minor one, the quality of the voice acting varies greatly. Some of it (most of it) is quite excellent. There were some dialogs that were a bit jarring because the acting just wasn't that great. If you are into story driven open world games, this should be your next purchase.

    Where did this game come from?

    |
    Posted .

    It's been a while since I've sat down and played a game for as many hours as I have this one. My PS4 has been sitting idle for several months now and when I came across this one, I decided to pick it up after reading some reviews. I can confirm that this is one awesome game! The story line is intriguing and the gameplay/graphics are great. The fact that you are in a post apocalyptic world with bizarre machines acting like animals roaming around...weird! But it does have the element of a mystery to it as well. I am pretty deep within the game and probably have put about 25-30 hours into it and still have plenty to do. I've heard that the makers of this game are planning on releasing some more downloadable content later this year as well. The game has everything that roleplaying fans like. Level up your character, weapons...plenty of side quest...great story, and some really neat creature designs. Excellent game and really look forward to pushing through to the end to find out exactly what is going on with these machines!

    Game of the Year...so far

    |
    Posted .

    In a week that also includes the legendary Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild PS4 debuts Aloy in Horizon Zero Dawn. I am playing on PS4 Pro and there is no console game that comes close to how HZD looks in pseudo 4K. Very stunning, not only that the game plays very well and while I've only begun the hunting, gathering, and crafting seem to be very fun!

    How an Open World Video Game is Supposed to Feel

    |
    Posted .

    Horizon: Zero Dawn was helmed by the Killzone developer Guerilla Games. Their Killzone franchise was amazing, but it was definitely time for something new. I see Horizon Zero Dawn getting game of the year for 2017. It has hours and hours of action packed fun. The open world layout is enormous and there is little to no load times. The only load times you will see are fast traveling, booting up the game, and restarting at a checkpoint/camp fire after dying. The voice acting and storyline feels so engaging. It makes me want to hear what every character in the game has to say. The side quests and errands also have a strong story element just like the main story line. The fight/sneak mechanics force you to think up an attack strategy for every enemy encounter. The massive amount of dialogue choices you can choose from for the main character Aloy helps to show more human emotion and involves more feeling of interaction with NPCs. This is a must play and must own video game. Prepare yourself for hours and hours of phenomenal nonstop game play. It's a game that's hard to put down.

    Tremendous achievement

    It's hard to believe this comes from the Killzone devs, which is a beautiful but straight-forward FPS series with a somewhat formulaic narrative. This game, by contrast, has an imaginative narrative, and a likeable, strong lead character. It's refreshing to see a woman who is sarcastic, witty, and confident, while also having vulnerability that doesn't define her. Open play is incredibly satisfying, and the ambient dialogue and animations just feel so natural and make the world fun to run about in. Also, robot dinosaurs man. I platinum games I love, and I platinumed this (which you can do in one playthrough).

    Best open-world game ever

    |
    Posted .

    If you break any open-world game down to its constituent elements, they all suck. Elder Scrolls, GTA, Assassin's Creed .... they might be good experiences overall, but if you isolate their driving, or their combat, or their story .... everything sucks. Horizon is the passing of a threshold for the genre, because most of its elements are legitimately great. The combat is a purified version of Monster Hunter, the story is very good, there are amazing character moments, the graphics are insane, the side quests are involving, the world is beautifully crafted and detailed, and it's just plain fun, from moment to moment. It might be the best game ever made.

    Excellent Adventure!

    |
    Posted .

    This has to be one of the best Action Adventure/RPG games on the PS4. It takes a little while to get used to the controls and combat functions but once that happens you will really enjoy the game. There are no guns to speak of except later in the game but it's mostly a bow & arrow and spear which are upgraded as the game progresses in addition to various traps. More powerful weapons are a must since some of the beasts are tough to take down in addition to human enemies. The game is similar to Far Cry Primal as to the basic mechanics and adventure portion but the difference is that you hunt down mechanical beasts instead of prehistoric animals. The graphics and sound are top-notch with smooth-as-butter controls and gameplay. The game is lengthy and can take about 40 hours to get most of the tasks and errands completed before getting to the final boss battle. It's a game that should be part of any PS4 library.

    Robot dinosaurs. That's all that really need be said about Horizon: Zero Dawn to warrant checking it out, but there is so much more to love about this game. It's got a strong female protagonist; a lush, vibrant open world to explore; complex, fast-paced, rewarding combat; deep and engaging main and side plots. The cinematography during character dialogue leaves something to be desired, but everything else shines. I'll be first in line for the sequel.

    So, I'm a pretty solid FPS gamer, not so much an RPG one. I was very hesitant to get this game because it's not what I usually play. However, after playing for even 30 minutes, I can tell you I love this game so far. It's ABSOLUTELY 100% the most interesting storyline of a game I have ever played. It draws you in from the beginning cutscene and then maintains that energy throughout. The use of technology and careful tactics in this game is very important, and I would recommend to anyone who is still hesitant about it! Note* I did have an issue where voices could not be heard from audio logs and the first cutscenes (not sound effects, only voices didn't work), in the event that happens, load the game to any checkpoint, go to settings and change the audio speaking language to French, then exit the menu and listen to an audio log, the go back and change to English. This reloads the English language packs and worked perfectly for me! Happy gaming!
