Horizon Zero Dawn

Postby DaHeckIzDat » March 27th, 2017, 11:26 am

I can't believe nobody's made a thread about this game yet. What, is everyone still off playing Zelda? I'm interested in this game, but I'm hesitant to shell out when it's still at full price. Anybody played it? Is it worth it? I've heard a lot of comparisons to The Witcher 3, which also makes me hesitant since I didn't like that game.

I'm really excited to play Horizon, but I'm not going to until I finish Persona 5. That's gonna be a minute. :)

Right now I'm playing Drakengard 3 (PS3) and I'm almost done. Just wanted another game in the series after playing the masterpiece NieR: Automata (PS4). Also slowly working my way through Steins;Gate on Vita, which is a visual novel with a great story. Other than, all eyes are on Persona 5.

But Horizon: Zero Dawn is next on the chopping block. I actually haven't heard the Witcher 3 comparisons. But I've heard plenty of Rise of the Tomb Raider and Ubisoft open-world comparisons. I don't like Western RPGs much either. But this one looks fantastic and has almost a 90 Metacritic, so it's universally praised (if that means anything). Anyway, if you get to it before me,let us know how you like it!

Damn I'm in the same boat was waiting for someone to post their thoughts. It's on my radar but probably not until June.

Tomb Raider meets Turok with a bit of Skyrim thrown in. Hmmm might be good but the developer has a chequered track record as they used to make Killzone series.
Will look and see if one of my pals gets one.

I feel like this game is probably being swept under the rug since Breath of the Wild has kind of stole the show in the last month... Has this game been selling well? It'd be a shame if this game doesn't do well because everyone is playing Breath of the Wild instead...

Scratch that- I double checked and it's selling very well... Why is no body talking about this game?

It sold a million copies in its first 3 days of release. I would assume that it is going to wipe the floor with zelda purely because Nintendo never produce enough machines early on.

I have been playing horizon off and on for a few weeks, whenever time permits. I love this game. It is a mix between modern tomb raider games, Skyrim and Far Cry 3. I really like the story which is easy to follow. Also, your main enemy is dinosaur like machine monstrosities which are really well done. All in and all a fun game. Lots of customization and I really like the menu. The in game menu does a good job organizing everything. I have not played Zelda so I cannot compare the two. From what I can tell from the reviews it is a great game too.
