I am playing "Horizon Zero Dawn" and its expansion pack "Frozen Wilds" on PS4. And OMG! This game is amazing. I resisted for a while buying it as I did not know what to expect but it is definitely the best game I have played this year and possibly for a long time now.
- best graphics I have ever seen (both in terms of amount of geometry and texture size) but also in the pure beauty (and variety) of the world. Guerrilla studios have always had very modern engines which pushed the HW to the limit and this game shows it. ( I also happen to work with their former engine lead in a different company now 😀 )
- one of the best facial animations I have ever seen (since LA Noire).
- fighting is great! The mechanics work very well and you are rewarded for being good
- the story is interesting and definitely drew me in
It is like they got the best parts of Skyrim, Fallout 4 and Uncharted and made a game that is superior (in my opinion) to all 3.
I got it for cheap ($29 - sale on the store) but I would have definitely payed its full price for it. It was sold out at every physical store I went (GameStop or Target) so I had to get it digital.
