PS4 Game Review - Horizon Zero Dawn

.
Horizon Zero Dawn a single player PlayStation exclusive (meaning you can only access/play this game on a PlayStation (PS4).) Released early 2017 this role-play action adventure game really shows what an open world survival game is all about.

Horizon Zero Dawn is about a young girl called Aloy who is determined to find out who her mother is and why she became an outcast and sheltered from the dangers of the world. She grew up in the wilds of the Nora Land with her father figure Rost who is also an outcast.

As you progress through the game you level up and come across bigger and stronger machines. Every time you level up your health goes up and you gain a Skill Point. You use these to learn new Skills to do with Prowler, Brave, Forager. Each skill requires a certain about of Skill Points.

Aside from the story mode you have side quests from different tribes. Each side quest has a different level requirement which you don't have to follow by that if you are lower than the required level you can still do that side quest it just may be hard.

The weapons in this game is more Archer based. As you progress through the game you come across Merchants that sell better versions of the weapons you start of with in the game.
You get different outfits that have different advantages. Some protect you better from fire attacks. Some are made to protect you better from freeze attacks. The amo for your weapons you have to craft your self by finding all the resources in the wild some you can only get by taking down machines/enemy's (bandits).

The graphics for this game are amazing in my opinion. They are so realistic. Every detail in this game is very well done. The grass moves in the wind and when it rains you can see Aloy actually getting wet and her clothes getting darker because of the rain. You can see water drip from her face, clothes and hair. The water has reflections from the sun. Nighttime in that game looks amazing. It's like you are really in the dark because it can be hard to see at times.
The experience is amazing.

It's been noted that an average player of the game can complete the story more in just a little over 21 hours. With the side quests added to the story mode it can be completed in about 43 hours. If you want to fully 100% the game by getting all the hidden recordings and many other secrets it can take about 58 hours.

If you have a PS4/Pro and you don't have this game you should really get it. It's recent update now gives the game a New Game+ mode (which is where you complete the game and if you start again and use New Game+ you start with all your weapons and outfits.) There is now harder modes which is only accessed through New Game+. You can change certain features of your character that you couldn't before which again....Is only access by New Game +. New Game+ mode does not come at an extra cost.

Horizon Zero Dawn is available in disc and on the PlayStation Store.
