Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn is an experiment. A very impressive experiment that actually succeeded.
Having a very curious mix of cyberpunk and prehistorical styles and esthetic, the game provides us with quite a unique experience. We need to arm ourselves with arrows and a bow, with a spear or any other prehistorical-ish weapon in order to defeat out enemies - dinosaur-mechanisms that are spread around the world. If that wasn't enough, Aloy our main protagonist can control an AI named GAIA. What we're having here is an exciting connection with "very old times" and "near future", even though the game is set up in the 31st century.
Being an outcast with her father Rost, Aloy must restore her position in the tribe and save the world by stopping the Eclipse, a cult that wants to rule the world. Join her on that journey, exploring the world and people that live in such hard surroundings.

I'm pretty sure if you look up "perfect game" there's just a picture of this game's cover art. I genuinely can't say enough good things
A beautiful game. There is nothing more to say. I can't wait for the next. 9/10
Great game. Farcry fans may find similarity and underrate it just because they bored of towers and craft system. Pretty good story. I cant stand melee combat system, but it's good with other weapons. Huge variation of weapons and ways to kill things. I recommend playing on highest difficulty.

pros: awesome visuals (landscapes, characters), lots of content | cons: weak main story, easy even on hard
Best game that I've ever played. It is the same entertainment level with GTA V and Batman Arkham City for me. Story, graphics, characters... All good. After I finished it, I played Frozen Wilds DLC and it was like a whole new game. A big extension. Fully recommended!

HZD is casual like a GAP pullover with it's simple exercises like running, jumping and archery. It looks great, speaking about graphics, but from the point of the story it's naked like a skeleton corpse. I could almost telepathically see the past when some bosses cut the budget for the story.  Oh, man, and the skill tree is so boring. Why actually I could not attack a creature jumping from above? I did it in many games before. More-loot-from-dinosaurs skill to make some more trash devices to hunt dinosaurs? Or maybe you are dreaming about super skill of grabbing a loot from corpses, sitting in a saddle of robohorse? Thanks a lot, that will be soooo helpful. I mean, HZD is not so bad if you want some relaxed gaming and no so common setting. But tempted gamers will skip Horizon for sure.

Definitely overrated game. I was really bored by plot and gameplay, but god... those dialogues were increadibly bad. I will only add that amount of monsters was really disappointing too, making new monsters by renaming older ones and giving them additional weapon. Last boss fight was boring, easy, a little bugged and totally too much simple. The only thing that I enjoyed in this game was landscape.
«Disappointment of the year»
My GOTY, 2017, and only Platinum trophy to date. Stunning game, especially in 4K with HDR on PS4 Pro.

Immersive, deep and good story, touching... and funny
The DLC is amazing, the environment is stunning as always. My overall rate is absolutely recommend, but I’d like to cite some drawbacks. First, I didn’t like the new ambush-style quests, there are just too many machines you have to kill. Second, Frostclaw and Fireclaw. While the first can be fun, the latter is overpowered even for a high-level character and weapons a fight can take up to half an hour, and this is very tiresome. Also there’s AI cheating, both Claws can do a ground attack with a auto-target and large range. I once hid behind some rocks and then BOOM! I’m dead. So there’s you can run, but you can’t hide strategy. Despite these flaws it’s still a great DLC, and if you like the original game, you should definitely buy this one.
