Discovering a new adventure with Horizon Zero Dawn

Horizon Zero Dawn is a single-player-action role-playing game created by Guerrilla Games and published under Sony Interactive Studios as a PlayStation 4 exclusive title.

 

Horizon Zero Dawn is currently retailed around $61.99 a price point for most to all big-named titles. Now is this game worth its price tag? My response is yes—it is worth its launch price and perhaps even more.

 

The game takes place on a post-apocalyptic world where Humans now live as primal versions of themselves similar to that of the old native Americans or of that of Eskimo in a world filled with ruins of old buildings and other structures from past civilizations.  Robots shaped and designed like dinosaurs also roam this world.

 

You play as Aloy, a girl who is part of the Nora tribe .  Aloy lives with her adopted father, Rost, and it is your job to find her birth mother and explore the secrets of the world.

 

Discovering a whole new world

Horizon Zero Dawn affords players the experience of an environmentally pristine fantasy world filled with predators that are a fusion of dinosaurs and robots–science fiction and Transformers fans might refer to them as “dinobots.”

 

At first glance, it is easy to get lost and fall in love with what the world has to offer as you traverse the grassy mellows into the snowy alps or even the desolate deserts of the world of Zero Dawn.

Welcome to a new imaginary world that you take when diving into this game’s creatures. The design that is both simple and yet complex. A mashup of  dinosaur that we know and read about brought to life through machinery just to add even more fear and threat to what you will face while exploring the land , sea, and caves. Excitement rises as not all dinobots are the same and must be dealt with in their own special way that you the player must find and expose to take of these creatures.

Concluding Remarks

Although the hype and excitement of the Nintendo Switch and the new Legend of Zelda game Breath of the Wild may have taken all the glory and headlines, Horizon Zero Dawn is not a game that can be overlooked.

 

If you have a PS4 and are not aware of this game, I can tell you that Horizon Zero Dawn is one that you should pick up if you are looking to just get lost and spend countless hours of enjoyment that this game will offer you.

 

To those who don’t have a PS4, and are thinking about getting one, them I would say that this game is probably a good selling or starting point to get into consoles.

 

Finally, for those who do not have or plan to get a PS4, this is not a review for you, but rather something to consider when the game of the year award comes around and also we appreciate your views anyways.
