Horizon Zero Dawn Review
Posted: 17 months ago, last updated 7 days ago.
This combination of overblown disaster and sometimes simplistic solutions – such as the discovery of a small group of scientists with a plan to remake the planet – manages not to jar. It’s a game that invites you to find the resilience of life even in the catastrophe. Life goes on, maybe differently And haphazardly, but still finds a way to continue.
The second game in the series, Horizon Forbidden West takes the action to a vast and foreboding wilderness to the far west as a pestilence has driven the planets inhabitants to search for a cure. You play Alloy, again, in a world bristling with even more robot dinosaurs.
