Horizon Zero Dawn Players Notice Incredible Detail With Aloy’s Eyes

You can actually see the real time true reflections in Aloys eyes when you zoom in close.

The story is too old to be commented.

I didn't even notice that. Wow the amount of details in this game is crazy. Amazing stuff

Alloy must have charmed Kojima san with those eyes.

The visuals in this game are thoroughly astounding. I really dont know how GG could pull off such a feat and in an open world too. Best visuals I have ever seen no lie. And the game behind it is great too! Horizon is that pivotal moment in gaming. I can only imagine how sick this looks in 4K.

It's the greatest new ip I've ever played while zelda botw is the greatest zelda game I've ever played and I freakin love zelda. Hopefully persona 5 will be the greatest jrpgs I've played, somethings gotta trump final Fantasy 9 for me.

^for anyone struggling to comprehend naruga's opinion of Horizon, he's also staunchly of the opinion that Resident Evil 7 is shit.


Senor_Spidey2091d ago

Septic I see through your false praise.. .

Beautiful game though yup, visually astounding

TheCommentator2091d ago (Edited 2091d ago )

@ Septic

You can only imagine what it looks like in 4K because it's not native anyways. That said, it does look phenominal, and is indeed one of the best looking games to ever grace a console.

Edit: I was wrong about it appearing to be downgraded.


There are some nice little details in this thread if you want to follow:

LMAO @ your disagree! 😂

This is truly the best looking game I've ever seen. There is so much going on that it is hard to appreciate it all.

I really love the game.

The game follows the basic open world formula for sure. I got some flack for saying it is very much like a Ubisoft open world game, and at it's core, it is. But it's the best damn one I've seen.

And the combat is really something else. There is so much more to it than just "shoot this robot a bunch of times until it dies. There are so many elemental types and weaknesses, weak points, and removable pieces of robots, etc... I think I have my robot notebook full of all the different kinds now, and it's hard to keep track of how to best fight each kind, there is so much variation between them all.

I love this game.

I think I was one of the ones who initially gave you flack, sorry about that, I didn't know what I was talking about.

This game is crazy, there's so much too it and it all looks so amazing. I'm like 12 hours in and I'm just now really starting to get into my groove with combat, it's so fast and fun with so many different tactics you can use, I love it.

@GTgamer: Not only that, it also makes me wonder how other developers that make open world games can't make one with constant game performance like Horizon when they have lesser overall graphics *cough* Fallout 4! *cough*

Lamboomington2091d ago (Edited 2091d ago )

well, to be honest that's nothing new. It's just the eye reflecting the cubemap, like any reflective surface. Pretty sure some games do this already.

That said, Aloy still looks amazing. Definitely the best character rendering in an RPG so far.

Her animations are incredible. They really adapted the Naughty Dog Jak and Daxter movement very well. She changes her run when she is running up or down paths. Or when you are running fast and she runs off a little edge she does amazing little animations with her feet through the air to when she impacts (you know instead of randomly insta-dying like Geralt did in The Witcher 3 before they fixed it after 2 months).

There are even Uncharted 3 levels of stuff going on too like when Aloy is doing an idle animation, like holding out he hands when it is raining and looking up, if you start walking during this, she continues to do the idle animation while starting her walking animation simultaneously.
For me, its things like this that all come together to make a game get the high praise that it does, instead of the haters that will show up when it wins GOTY awards saying its "it doesn't deserve this praise, its just a crappy version of the witcher" without actually understanding a thing about the game's complexities.

uth112091d ago

The haters refuse to even compare it to the Witcher. They keep calling it a Far Cry knock off

UnHoly_One2091d ago (Edited 2091d ago )

Well I'm not sure what category I fall into, then. I'm certainly not a hater. I compared it to Far Cry. I mean, at it's core, the base game shares a lot with the basic Ubisoft formula. Saying that is not a negative statement. It's just a comparison. And I love Far Cry and most Ubisoft games for that matter, so I definitely do not mean it as a slight.

Now, with that said, I love Horizon, and I would place it above most, if not all, of those games that it shares similarities with.

The one area where it stands on it's own the most is the combat. You can look at a video and think it's just a 3rd person shooter, but there is a lot more to it than that, with all the different weapon and ammo types and all the different weaknesses the different machine types can have. It's really something special.

As for comparisons to Witcher, I wouldn't compare the two, because I thought Witcher 3 was utter garbage, and this game is better in every possible way. I know I'm mostly alone in that opinion, but it is what it is. I thought it was an utterly lifeless and shallow experience for an RPG, with pretty graphics and nothing else. The combat was essentially the same from the beginning to the end.

Horizon is a blast. I think I put almost 40 hours into it so far and I don't feel like I'm anywhere close to the end, and it's still fun and I'm still learning new combat tricks as I go.

chrono12052091d ago

I see it more like monster hunter.

Lamboomington2090d ago

Your point being ? What did I do to hate on the game ?

I bought a PS4 Pro and got HZD with it, spent all weekend simply enjoying the forests of Mother. The attention to detail is crazy.
