If you completely smashed the content from the base game and wanted more, it can scratch that itch. With more powerful enemies, weapons to take them on, and a slew of new features aimed at increasing gameplay longevity, there’s a lot to love in this expansion. Regarding how Guerilla wanted it to work within the existing content, however, it suffers from a hopelessly clumsy implementation. Its content reflects that of an end-game expansion while being inserted into the base game in such a way that you’re encouraged to play it as one big whole. Guerilla also has some curious ideas about the kind of updates that should be relegated to paid-for content. I still love Horizon, and I even enjoyed my time with Frozen Wilds, but I’m hoping for much better from Guerilla in the future."
