Forums - Sony Discussion - Finally got around to beating Horizon

Horizon is in my top 50 greatest games of all time. Any publication that gives it less than an 8 is being pretentious with their reviews.



Around the Network

I only have good memories of Horizon, it dragged me away from VR for a while. BotW put it on hold, yet after I finished that I started a new game and completed everything. 2 amazing games in a row!



I played a few hours and stopped... about a year ago?

Part of the problem is I haven't been in the mood for that type of game. I'm more inclined to just play a more straight forward experience, a more linear experience.

I'm sure I'll play it eventually though.

9.5 to me. I always place heavy emphasis on story and I enjoyed HZD's take more than I did the Witcher 3's . In retrospective now that I have played Breath of the Wild, I have to say Horizon is really and 8.5-9.0 game. The gameplay lacks polish, and the combat at times is uneven. However the game is such an Aural/Visual feast that I forgave a lot of its shortcomings. It's my 3rd favorite open world game right behind BotW and Skyrim.



Did you notice the main character is a girl? How cool is that?

I couldn't finish it, either. It didn't hook me. A week after I bought it, the Switch released. After a hundred plus hours in that game, I kinda forgot what I was trying to do in Horizon. I'll have to start it from scratch one day. It was a good game. Just bad timing.

Yeah sometimes you just don’t feel like playing this type of game. 

Oops, quoted wrong post. Man this site blows on mobile.



Glad you were able to complete the game. Wish you could have enjoyed it as much as I did.

For me Horizon is the 2nd best TV and Gamepad game I have ever played. It is tucked right between The Last of Us and God of War.

I loved every moment of this game. For me the Combat and Gameplay was the most enjoyable I have ever had the joy of controlling. The only thing it falls short in compared to TLOU is the character connection. I love Aloy, but the other characters fell short.

Would like to see your thoughts after finishing Frozen Wilds.

I am looking forward to Horizon PS5.



Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

I'm sorry you didn't like the game.

But yes the gameplay even on the hardest setting can be easy if you attack from far.

7/10 isn’t not liking it.

And you’re supposed to attack from a distance. Almost every weapon you have is a ranged bow to shoot arrows. There’s no depth to the melee combat whatsoever. It’s light attack or heavy, that’s it.

Ok, so you liked but not as much as most on the site, fair.

Yes I agree you are supposed to attack from distance (even if the game don't really say it), attacking from near is a nightmare and can be quite challenging (when I wasn't fighting T-Rex I used to fight from near). You can get quite good at positioning, one arrow to get the robot to stop and them melee it. But sure I do agree that the combat is a lot more simple than some other games even if it have a lot of different weapons.
