My review of Horizon: Zero Dawn is now live! I really liked this game, but there's a strong chance they sat down and made the game specifically with me in mind. It's the only way I can explain the process of them making a game that I've always wanted. It's got robot dinosaurs and dinosaur robots. It has great bow and arrow 'gunplay', a massive, gorgeous world, a fantastic protagonist and oodles to do.
It's not flawless, but it's a spectacular first outing for this new franchise.
If you want to see the game in action and watch me talk about the concept of cheating in a game world where the enemy is generally explicitly AI and it exists at a significant advantage compared to you (while being fairly tongue in cheek about the whole thing), I'd love to share a video with you. But Sony used the Copyright Takedown System to remove my video so I can't.
