'Horizon Zero Dawn' Reviews: What Are Game Analysts Saying
"Horizon Zero Dawn" marks the game developer's first diversion from the "Killzone" series, and though it looks like Guerrilla Games might have taken a risk by deviating from its FPS (first-person shooter) comfort zone in favor of third-person open-world action game, it will be hard to tell this was their first foray into FPS type of video games, according to GameSpot, which rates "Horizon Zero Dawn" 9/10 in it's the latest review. The publication deems "Horizon Zero Dawn" as one of the current generation's best open-world games.
Meanwhile, another "Horizon Zero Dawn" review from IGN claims that the game competently shuffles a slew of moving parts keeping the title's pivotal activity i.e. combat extremely satisfying. The publication attributes this to the different design and action of machine-creatures that wander about its land, each of which needs to be put down with careful planning. IGN rates the game 9.3/10.
While there's still scope for improvement as far as side-questing is concerned, "Horizon Zero Dawn's" missions are quite fascinating as a result of a central mystery, that IGN's Lucy O'Brien claims led her down a deep-seated rabbit hole to quite an unexpected and moving end.
