    Great, but has minor flaws

    Let me start off by saying that I'm not a huge fan of the bow-and-arrow based shooting mechanics. But I went through an embarassingly long portion of the game not having upgraded my weapons, and as a result, toned down t... Read Full Review

    an SJW attempt of a Witcher mimic. Poor controls, boring environs, but great hype

    If you've played the Witcher 3, do not bother playing this game. It basically attempts to mimic the loot system, the fighting system, and the character interactions but with an SJW/3rd wave feminist twist. The characters... Read Full Review

    great journey but ending needs polish

    I played the Complete Edition (with DLC) so in lieu of writing two separate reviews, I'll just combine them here. Overall, HZD was a very fun journey following the story (though it was a bit predictable) and an absolute ... Read Full Review

    Embrace the Greatness

    MY ULTIMATE OPINION:Horizon Zero Dawn is intensely "engaging" and "indulging" mainly because of its very logical battle system and wonderful panorama of its post-apocalyptic world besides the interesting story line and f... Read Full Review
