Thoughts on Horizon:Zero Dawn?

10 posts in this topic

I'm definitely going to wait until Joe actually reviews it, but I'm hoping its good.

I haven't really been paying attention to the development cycle, but since it's coming out soon I figured I would try to get a few early opinions on it.

Are you excited? Are you worried? Were there any red flags that popped up you would like to share?

I am more along the lines of ready. I am not excited seeing as they've shown so much of game even before PSX. I am not worried because I've been hearing a lot of good things from people who've gotten hands-on. Only thing that I don't care for is Pro Version, but I think the Pro Version stuff is marketed and handle all wrong across the board.

Giant walking Ubisoft towers........I cannot find any excitement for this knowing they have added towers that unlock shit on the map...

in terms of gameplay it looks like a futuristic far cry .... nothing special.

too much hype about it.

Honestly worth the price and the hype, the "tower unlock" mentioned above is not accurate. You don't unlock an area by getting there you just get the area surrounding it to appear when you look at the map instead of having to actually go there to remove the "fog of war" so to speak. 

Story and gameplay are very good as well, it does deserve some comparisons but it's best to look at it kind of like how Blizzard does things, yes a lot of it has been done before but the polish and execution behind it make it worth the investment.

The comment I made was both a joke, and before the game released.

On that note; I actually got the game, aaaaannnndddd let's just say it's great for screenshots. Other than that, I seriously can't bring myself to finish it. I'm not saying the game is bad, it's just I lost all interest. The world is nice, the characters are interesting, the narrative is decent, but the gameplay I found to be a chore. Melee combat is just awful, movement is janky as fuck, fighting the machines is fun for a while but ends up becoming tedious after a while. 

I know many will disagree with me, but hey, it's my opinion. If you guys enjoy it, good for you; I just don't.

I loved it. I finished it and moved on to Nier Automata and now Mass Effect Andromeda. Just a crazy month for games I love but I definitely plan on going back to platinum and I rarely put the time and effort into platinuming a game unless I really like it.
