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!
