One of my favourite games for the PS4. Horizon Zero Dawn is a game I would’ve completely missed it if my girlfriend hadn’t bought a PS4 Slim early 2017. Also my brother-in-law persuaded me to play it. For that I am grateful. This was the second modern open world game I played, and afterwards I was hooked.
A beautiful game with a unique story and setting. The narration is formed the way so the protagonist and tribesman Aloy discovers the mysterious world together with the player which highly enhances the experience. Aloy, a young woman brought up as an outcast outside the warmth of the tribe goes on an adventure like you have never seen before.
A great number of robotic animals molded after real and now extinct counterparts roam the forests and riversides. Among these animals is what Horizon Zero Dawn is the most famous for, robotic dinosaurs like the raptor-like Watcher, the majestic Tallneck or the scary T-rex-look-a-like, the mighty Thunderjaw.
Engaging story, combat and world filled with machines grazing, hunting and living amongst humans. Something has happened since the world is very technological sophisticated, yet humans live in tribes. It is somehow connected to Aloy in a way that makes it dangerous to not be on your guard. This makes the player want to find out more about this world, and why it is the way it is.
The visuals are striking and become even more beautiful in HDR. Guerilla Games has really done something special with Horizon, and I am really looking forward to the sequel.
IF you haven’t played this I highly recommend you to, as it is one of the most enjoyable experiences on the Playstation 4.
