Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition
Horizon: Zero Dawn introduces the player to a unique setting – a post-apocalyptic world where the animal-like machines and humans living in tribal settlements coexist in a delicate harmony. The setting is one of the main selling points of the game – who wouldn’t want to hunt down a robo-tyrannosaurus or a towering giraffe-like creature.
As Aloy, a young hunter, you’ll track and hunt the animalistic machines, craft tools using their parts, and get to the bottom of the recent wave of attacks from the robots. The world of HZD is beautiful and its history is quite interesting.
The gameplay mechanics were also solid, featuring equips that influenced different stats when combined. What we would like to see in Horizon: Zero Dawn? Maybe more different creatures, a new story set in a different part of the world. Some of these were explored in The Frozen Wilds DLC expansion, but it is clear that the world of H:ZD still has much to offer.
It has all the right features: traps to trick enemies into, beasts with weak spots to exploit, different weapons with which to hunt, and collecting pieces for sale and crafting. HZD is perfect if you want a specifically single-player experience and not feel pushed toward online play, or working with NPCs. The game looks amazing, from concepts for beast and humans to technical execution of it all.
