    Horizon Zero Dawn reviews



    Saw this pop up in my feed, forgot that it is coming out in a week.

    Game looks beautiful, might be the game that makes me break my promise to not buy any more PS4 games until I clear some of the games in my ridiculous PS4 back log.
    Seems it's getting overwhelmingly positive reviews on Metacritic from almost all publications.

    In the interest of some amusement here's a link to the only "bad" review from a website (it's 2.5 out of 5 dropped it's meta score to 88 oh noes!!)
    The Sony fanboy comments (all of which haven't played it because it's not available yet) are pretty funny.

    I'll probably get it eventually. But I have too many games to play since the Switch is out soon, and I use forever to finish a game.

    I thought their embargo lifted on Tuesday. I guess reviews are being leaked early or embargo date wasn't Tuesday.

    Nioh started out with an 89 also and 3 mixed reviews brought the score down to 87. PS4 has been getting a lot of quality highly rated exclusives lately.

    Yeah, the PS4 has gotten a lot of quality exclusives in the form of Yakuza 0, Gravity Rush 2, Nioh and now Horizon. I think they're all at least 85+ on metacritic.

    I'll be passing on Horizon for now, I think. I have too many games to play and need to be studying even harder now.

    Yeah, I been so busy on my PS4 lately. I'm glad they've been releasing a steady flow of quality titles.

    I have a lot of stuff that I will be picking up soon. I'm picking up Horizon on Tuesday. The Switch and Zelda on Friday and Nier on the following Tuesday. I'm playing through Nioh now. Going to start Horizon after, then Zelda, then Nier.

    I'm definitely getting this, it's just a matter of when. I have too many games to play right now. I"m buried in FFXV end-game content and the DLC is coming soon, I have Zelda on Friday, and Kingdom Hearts end of the month. I'll probably get Horizon sometime after that.

    Yeah, I gotta say that my Wii U for the most of my gaming time the last few years has been my primary, but 2016/2017 playstation has been hitting it out of the park and I've been spending a ton of time on my PS4 lately.

    Please buy a pro so resolution and framerate is closer to PC too and you'll see what I'm talking about.

    It's not going to be anytime soon since the Pro is $500 and PSVR $550 for the headset alone.

    And I've explained in the past that while our currency is devalued, we don't make any more income in general than the American equivalent of the same job.

    Plus the Switch is already an $700 expenditure in total this year. I'll probably only get a PS4 in 2019.

    There's a deluxe version of this? What does it include, a season pass? Anyways, I'll wait a few months until this is $30 before I give it a go. I probably won't get around to it until early fall since there are lot other good PS4 games.

    Digital art book, extra theme and some in game bonuses.

    I feel they deserve $70 for the game too. It's excellent and game prices haven't gone any higher for over a decade while inflation is a thing and game development costs have gone significantly higher. That's pretty much why we have deluxe editions and stuff. I'm glad $60 is an option though.

    This game blows me away. The graphics are some of the best I've seen in gaming. Gameplay is super tight and responsive and the story and presentation are off the chart

    Easy nominee for GOTY already. Can you believe it's only February?

    If you are on the fence of buying a ps4

    Do

    It

    Now

    Greatness as arrived. The waiting game is over.

    It definitely uses a lot of elements from other open world titles. Which is a good thing in my opinion because they do work and it uses the good parts. I sense far cry 4, Bethesda rpg, the Witcher 3 and assassin's Creed here.

    The combat is in a league of its own for sure. The fluidity and responsiveness, feel and challenge make you eager for the next battle that will test you.

    I remember thinking this game used nearly everything from Far Cry Primal. everything except the view one was 3rd person and one was 1st person.

    both require you to hunt to upgrade arrow bags, pouches ect
    you bot have a scent to follow and do it almost the same way
    both are set in a primal world. Even if one has robot dinosaurs it is just a skin and not to different.

    the difference really only came down to the story.

    I know it's an old thread, but I really loved that game, it is actually the first title I platinumed on my PS4.

    HZD is far more polished than FCP by the way. The story is pretty good and can be challenging.

    The combat system is fun enough on its own that you can just hunt for fun without being questing or farming, it is just fun. The visuals are so rich, vibrant and alive, it is quite entertaining to explore for the sake of it. There's always something to see.

    You can wait for the DLC to come out, probably they will do a bundle with both the game and its DLC, sort of a Deluxe edition or GOTY edition?

    They probably will, that's kind of the trend nowadays. Who knows when that will come out, though.

    Good job on the platinum. I loved the game to and found exploring and hunting fun and not a chore.

    The story was amazing. One of the best any game has to offer.
