5 Things Horizon Zero Dawn Did Incredibly Right

GeekReply: Here I am sitting while waiting for another one of Q1 or Q2’s great games to arrive on my doorstep. So many great titles so far this year and many more still to come. Still it’s hard to shake off this feeling of leaving Aloy behind. Horizon Zero Dawn still rings in my mind even with games like Resident Evil 7, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Nier: Automata, and Torment: Tides of Numenera under my recently completed belt. Hell, whenever I turn on my PlayStation 4 and make my way past the icon for Horizon Zero Dawn, I just stare at it wishing more content would magically appear within it. The experience was that enjoyable and I really do hope that Guerrilla Games is working on a singleplayer DLC. I’m so enamored these past two months that I just needed to get my feelings out other than with a critical eye. Although Horizon Zero Dawn was the first title I ever gave a 10/10 to since becoming an actual journalist. In an effort to think about Aloy’s adventure as much and long as possible, here’s five things that Horizon Zero Dawn did incredibly right.

It wasn't perfect by any means. But it has a solid foundation to build upon.

Armaggedon2615d ago

It is perfect, just not ultimate.

Utalkin2me2615d ago

@Armaggedon

It's not perfect. It's a great game, like i said before has a great foundation to build upon and improve.

You're not allowed to call PS4 exclusives less than perfect. Just sayin.

@Prince-Ali

Sorry majority rules. If it was so perfect then scores would have reflected that. A opinion is fine and everybody has one. But majority of opinions rules. My opinion reflects of what most journalist have said. Its 89 on metacritic and about where it should be.

@thekhurg

Well of course not. But i dont care. If it was so perfect then scores would have reflected that.

Incredible game all around & a strong GOTY contender.

JBaby3432614d ago

Story: I was really surprise by the story and how deep it is.

Gameplay: The gameplay and the graphics complement each otherm not every game plays as good as it looks

Machines: Some of the best enemy and AI designs ever. Just watching Snapmaws as a Crocodile lover move, attack, and even chill like a real croc was amazing.

Combat: Imo the best Open world combat to date. Not a single QTE, versatility, and epic soundtrack

Performance: Yet another thing that not every open worlds gets right. Solid perfomance with those graphics is a true achievement, something GG must be applauded for

All of that makes this game untrollable in my eyes. Amazing game!

best enemy AI? The human AI is atrocious.

UCForce2615d ago

But the machine AI was the star of the game.

AspiringProGenji2615d ago

True, but I mean the machines. They are star of the show.

Human AI is on the list of things to improve for the sequel, but they got the machines right!

Dark_Knightmare22614d ago

Nice try but he specifically stated the machine a.i. which is absolutely amazing

Utalkin2me2614d ago (Edited 2614d ago )

@UCForce

He didn't mention the machine AI. So his comment still stands. But nice spin.

@AspiringProGenji

Again you defend then repeat exactly what he just said.

@Prince-Ali

Nice spin on some terrible AI. Im assuming where going by your standards, cause you know so much.

@Dark_Knightmare2

Maybe you have problems reading..."Some of the best enemy and AI designs ever" He put it together as a group, not calling a specific one out.

My opinion is this is the best game ever. Perfect or almost perfect in every category like the author said. Just my opinion about the game.

jcole972615d ago

The machine AI is great. Human AI on the other hand, not so much
