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.

Read the review and find out for yourself if you like!

The game is really good, and I agree entirely with Joab -- for the first little bit, it's very reminiscent of Far Cry, but it slowly comes into its own before you know it, and all of a sudden hunting is like looting in other games, only now you're not raiding cupboards, you're using the game's strongest point -- it's combat, to stack those pockets. It's a unique gameplay loop, but it's one that works

This game looks brilliant, I love the art and the premise. Definitely tempted to get a PS4 sometime this year for this and a few other games, like Bloodborne and remasters of Journey and The Last of Us. Uncharted looks like a great series too.

They are all third person action games!

I would buy a PS4 for this game as long as there was one other exclusive that held my attention.

Defo worth it to play the remastered Uncharted series, and Uncharted 4, as well as Last of Us. I got a PS4 just for those and it was so worth it.

Defo keen to check this out. I was thinking it seems like a mix of TombRaider and FarCry.

I'm pretty sure I saw this review reference in the ad I saw at Hoyts before Logan started.
