Horizon Review: Catastrophic Combat Cripples A 4X Contender [Dealspwn]

Dealspwn writes: " Horizon's old-school strategy should be catnip for 4X fans, and L30 Interactive have got a lot right. All the genre basics are present and correct, with superb diplomacy, research and optional story threads hinting at hours of fun. Sadly, what should have been a return to form is built on a nasty tactical simulation layer that introduces unnecessary micro-management at every turn, and makes combat a miserable chore.

After a few enjoyable hours, I found myself scrabbling around in the cupboard to find my ancient copy of Birth Of The Federation. To be honest, I'd recommend that you do the same." (Horizon: Zero Dawn, PC) 5/10
