Horizon: Zero Dawn is only days away from hitting PS4 hard drives. After spending the better part of 15-20 hrs with it, I can say with confidence and frankly some surprise….it is fantastic. A studio solely famous for First Person Shooters has made a clever and very unique game-world. Somehow they have created a game with the best bits of the open world and beast hunting in The Witcher 3, the tried and true ‘RPG lite’ fun of the FarCry games and also the slick, visceral combat of the recent Tomb Raider reboots.
You will play as ‘Aloy’, who has been an outcast all her life. But when the world is under threat her tribal leaders reluctantly turn to her to for help. This open world 3rd person, action adventure is beautiful, detailed and engrossing. Sony could have easily put Guerrilla Games back on the FPS treadmill, making them churn out another Killzone…..but thankfully they didn’t and we got Horizon! Enjoy the full review!
After spending a good week with the Nacon “Revolution” playing Destiny, Uncharted 4, Steep, Inside and Call of Duty, I have got around to putting my thoughts into a Video Review.
The Nacon “Revolution” is around the $170-$180 mark in Aus and NZ, which for a wired controller is a bit steep. However its suite of features and overall quality is worth the price of entry and makes it a solid alternative to the PS4s Dualshock 4.
Xbox One owners have been enjoying a high calibre controller for some months now, with the release of the first party Xbox Elite Controller from Microsoft. Sony have finally met their user base halfway with two ‘Pro’ controllers, which are officially licensed for Playstation, but are made by third parties. Nacon and Razor have just released two controllers and I have got my hands on the Nacon ‘Revolution’ to put through its paces.
A full review will follow in a few days once I have spent some time with it, but to start with, here are some unboxing pics.
Nice molded box that says: Yep – you have bought quality.
