8/10 The story was becoming pretty stupid and a mess from the "to save innocents some innocents must die" (for exemple making the sister die after like 2 min of us finding her even tho she was there for days was just to add forced drama )part but the story cought itself near the end (not the dlc)and saved itself especially with the few last cutscenes The Story in general 8.5/10 The story with the details related to it 7.75/10 I hate the king he can't do shit by himslef The graphics ,art and character designs are good so is the animation The music is kind of good but not great tbh in other hand the voice acting and sound effects are great The combat systeme is great But Being witnessed by a group of animals while running is way more deadly than the bosses somehow And the final fight itself (without the dlc) was kind of crap but the cut scenes afterward were great Anw overall 8/10 still better than uncharted 4 (7.25/10)

I bought this when it came out..... I've lost HOURS of my life just running around doing anything I want. This enormous open world is one of the most amazing things..... Now if only Bethesda could apply that to the Fallout series.....

I hate this game because it sucks you in at first with its beauuutifulll graphics but quickly becomes dull experience. The enemies are annoyingly easy to take down , the side quest are so annoying and unimaginative and the main story is just okay at best. Typical sci-fi stuff blah. There isn’t really any progression in the game, you level up but... it ... just means you can carry more or do more damage ? Big friggin whoop lol now the annoying bad guys go down 50% faster. My god all you do in this game is follow the compass icon to your side quest. This game is beautiful garbage nothing more. Gameplay is very very boring, story is average but the side quest will bore you so bad that the main story is too much of a chore to even remember and the voice overs feel off half the time. I hate how the main character Sounds like she is from 2017 with sass and attitude but everyone else sounds like they are from brave heart. Total garbage. The only way I could imagine someone enjoying this game if is they did LSD and hallucinated they was in the beautiful world of the game. I give this crap game 3/10.

geoo zeii , the character models look kind of bad especially the facial animations. I remember one side quest where a girl was asking me to save her mother or something. A very sad and hopeless moment and the NPC had this smirk on their face because the game designers didn’t do any facial animation. Maybe spend less time on the plants and more time on the heart breaking moments ???????

It's not one of my favorite games like I thought it would be, I love it but there's just something that I haven't heard someone criticize yet...the progression system. Why are there so few outfits and weapons and much more variants?? I felt like I went through the entire game with the Shadow outfits and I rarely ever had to change anything besides the coils/weaves. For the genre of game it is, there should be dozens of outfits and weapons, but they made it even worse by giving you the best items pretty much at the beginning of the game. In reward boxes you never got anything with high value. You couldn't ever change the spear or modify it and there's only one hidden outfit throughout the game! Seriously it's such a huge let down what they did with that aspect, it pretty much ruined everything for me.

This review sucked lol it didn’t accurately describe the game at all
Jacob Sample (20 days ago)
The Witcher 3 style sidequests that have full fleshed out stories take a lot of time and money to make, especially for a game that will have hundreds of them. CD Project was able to pull it off as they have a strict "coming when its ready" policy that gives them all the time they need to make the game as good as possible. Unfortunately, most games studios don't get this luxury because they have publishers that set specific release dates they have to make no matter what.

The hunting is incredible,the combat just feels so damn good.The only problem that I have with this game is the combat against humans/melee combat, it works but you'll notice that the game was made for robot-dinosaur hunting first and foremost.

Bro if the side quest characters are blend in HZD then in AC origins they are complete robots
Kim RRB (22 days ago)
I actually loved the side quests!! I liked how all characters you meet seem like realistic people, they have humor, they flirt a bit with Aloy and they're all remarkable in their own way. Another big thing is that when you're done playing this game you can start again on a another difficulty level. It goes from easy to ultra hard and even easy ain't that easy. You can choose to keep your inventory when you start over or just start again with nothing.

The Watchers just annoy the shit out of me now and I'm 43% through. The flying ones are annoying and flap around too much. Take too long to kill. I loved the game up until this point. Now I'm over it. One thing I thought was silly was that you are prompted to talk to a lot of people around you and they say something but your character is never able to reply. You just look at them while they mutter. That could have been done better.
Annie (26 days ago)
Agree with this review. I was really impressed with the detail and variety of the machines and the incredible landscapes. I got very into this game, this is why I was really disappointed when there were some tedious quests and many machine boss battles that seemed to never end, used all your ammo and were unfair to the player. I hate investigative type side quests and there were a few of these I had to plod through. I got very disenchanted about the Armour Quest where you don't get the special armour until near the end of the game when you need it to fight the larger machines and flying ones much earlier. I think a lot of people have been annoyed by that. There was also a glitch early in the game where a crucial item, a power-cell, was locked up permanently behind gates and made inaccessible though you weren't told that you would need it later when you were near it. That was really unfair to the player. The voice-acting was great with at least one surprise sci-fi actor appearing. Aloy's voice was great, unlike the main female character in Mass Effect Andromeda. There were definitely some 'wow' moments in this game, for instance the view from the top of one of the tall machines while it's walking. I was really impressed. It's still worth buying, for sure.

Jamil Rahman (29 days ago)
Only con of Horizon zero dawn is that once you play it, no other game will satisfy you, this game is by far the greatest game I've ever played in my life though it already won game of the year for 2017 I reckon it could possibly still be the game of the year for 2018 as well, yes it is that good
theBatman (29 days ago)
Bought this game on sale for 19$ so I can't say I'm too disappointed. I still CAN NOT BELIEVE that this game is the best selling ps4 game.. that's a huge clue to ps4 having the dullest fanbase in all consoles. This game is so left-winged that it completely destroys the lore in game. As you progress you'll see every race in these tribes. LOL. How realistic. NOT. If any of you know anything about history it's that we've always been divided and enslaved by superior races. Sorry cupcakes. That's how the world runs. Yet you see black,yellow, races of all color getting along through this "horrible time in game" yet there is no talks of murder, rape, or any war time atrophosies. Hmmm. Not to mention you play as a female character.... give me one famous female in history that could do half of anything A lot does in game... exactly. 100% fake. The only evil guys in the game are indeed that, guys. I'm ashamed that so many ppl ranted and raved about such a poorly thought out game. The lore is complete rubbish and you only stupify yourself if you indulge in such fantasys. can we not have a serious well thought out realistic game style game that offers fantasy elements. Does everything have to be politically correct so no one gets hurt???? The graphics are awesome. Lore + story = hell naaaaaa naaaa naaaaa I'd rather play Rome on the pc

Maeguk (1 month ago)
only thing I didn't like is the facial expressions animation. It's so inferior compared to what the game strives for. It's ridiculous, the discussions are badly staged and the camera work is also subpar for the other quality level of the game. Nowhere near to what Naughty Dog has achieved. Also to some extent I had a feeling of "have played this already", namely things resembled to Red Dead Redemption. But otherwise it's a recommended buy.

Cody Cigar (1 month ago)
This game is painfully boring, the animation and the story kind of suck, the combat is meh. Don't get me wrong, though, the graphics and gameplay animations are great, but cutscene animations often SUCK. Everyone is just frozen still the whole time, but their faces move, often awkwardly. The phoneum tracking is really fucked up, leaving lip sync ridiculous in most scenes.

Played it quite a bit when it was just out, took a long break from it and now I can't bring myself to play it for more than 15 minutes. It's hard to explain but for some reason it doesn't really grip me. It looks gorgeous, the theme is cool and the gameplay is good, but somehow it's missing something in the plot to make me want to keep playing.

Mr. Shneeblie (2 months ago)
Scarred Praetorian she is a clone, so she has a adopted dad, who actually sacrificed himself to save her from an explosion. And I guess so, mostly because the game doesn’t worry about love interests so she doesn’t have anyone that flirts with her.
Mr. Shneeblie (2 months ago)
Scarred Praetorian you want everyone in everything to be a man and when 1 game or movie with a female protagonist comes out you call it feministic. Actually, your not really sexist, just an asshole.

Kimbap Tempura (2 months ago)
This is one of those games where the forced diversity is obnoxious. All white men in this game are evil, or kind of pussies. All the strong characters are either Black or female, or black female. It's not horrible but obvious and heavy handed. The game is good though the controls can be wonky as fuck, and menus are a bit of a mess. Also the tutorials give you too much info on obvious shit and no info on important and intuitive shit. There are problems but when all is said and done, this is a must own/play for anyone who owns a PS4. It is just jaw droppingly gorgeous and USUALLY fun as fuck...just set your expectations a little lower and you will be pleasantly surprised.

I'm wondering whether or not this should be my new game. The only thing that bothers me is that it sounds like it might get a bit samey. I bought Assassin's Creed Syndicate and L.A Noire not long ago and those two games bored the hell out of me. I hope if I buy this it's not going to be a repeat of that.

This and God of War are essentially the only things that make me want to buy a PS4. I’m usually okay with missing out on exclusives; console exclusives on both sides of the PS/Xbox fence haven’t really impressed me as of late... though since the release of the Switch, Nintendo seems to be picking up the slack in that regard. But these... Ugh, I’m drooling.

The ability to decide some of her social outcomes feels a bit weird when they clearly wrote her to be young, brash, and a bit judgmental because of it. It feels out of place having the ability to go super nice in some interactions when she's written in such a way that she'd obviously only ever use the brain or fist options in those instances. This is one of my more enjoyed pick ups. I haven't been inspired to play an adventure game in a long time. It may have elements similar to Far Cry or Assassin's Creed but you have to understand that to some of us, we have NO DESIRE to play those games. I like robots, post-apoc, and a lot of other themes that show up in this game, so it was a fresh experience for me. I could not more highly recommend it.
I liked it for the first few hours but 10 hours in I'm bored as hell.

Okay yeah this game is good the first time you play. But trying to replace a side quest that are really annoying And replaying boring story. I don't think so. The game does it have that quality that gets you into it. It's a really bad game with a lot of boring scenes where you're trying to figure out what created what in the in the world and yeah the game play was good but after a while it just gets really boring. I know people are going to think differently about it but the voice acting was horrible, the weapons were not that great the scenery was good but I felt that the robots were a little much. And yeah it's just really bad if you want a game they going to decide to resell or never use this game is for you but if you want something that's worth your time I prefer anything else than this game

Umair Saeed (4 months ago)
This was an amazing game there is no way of explaining how good it was the feeling of unease and adventure and being scared shitless as son as u leave the Nora tribe and entering the wilds where they are super tough creatures being with alloy form her birth and the satisfying feeling of finding what happened to this world the landscape and the realism of the tribes and how it feels like a real place where guards actually protect people push them away from danger and how the structure of cities and the roads feel so realistic and the sound track it sooooo good and the scary huge forest to the north of the map that I called the devil forest because it’s scary and hellish in there and I saw glint hawks flying to the forest pick up brodheads and take them thousands of meters into the sky and dropping and impaling them on tress the animals fought each other too god it was scary
Swiper LeFox (4 months ago)
I wonder if video game developers look at reviews of other games or even play other games for that matter and just go "h, maybe we should put something like that into our games" because if I could make a game...I'd make a video game crossover/mix of open world games like The Witcher 3(a lot video game developers could learn from CDPR), GTAV, and Assassin's Creed. A game like that would be absolutely the best game ever. But they'd have to do it right. Putting a plan together on paper and executing that plan aren't always so easy as one might expect.
Chasing Chickens (4 months ago)
I've never been impressed and immersed in a video game for a long time until this game. Every nook and cranny in this game world was like an art in motion, that's how gorgeous it is. HZD just tops TW3 graphically, both games have great story and world. combat HZD is quite simplistic just like TW3 but something about them felt satisfying and rewarding.

Triggy McTrigger (4 months ago)
Really tried to like it and tried to be another hyped sheep gamer but it was so boring and generic. Nothing new here. Forgettable enemy types. Empty open world. Bland, bland NPCs. Very small weapon and armor pool. Only good thing about the game other than the pretty empty world is fighting one of the very few "boss" machines for the first few times. Very overrated, just cause it looks nice doesnt mean its the best game ever.
