Horizon: Zero Dawn


[link to this post]
 
Wow...

I've created a very short clip without spoilers, from the very beginnng of the game, just to show you what it really looks like.

This is PS4 Pro footage set by default to favour resolution, rendering at 2160p, then automatically supersampling down to my 1080 TV. Once realising that was the default setting, I have since set it to favour performance, plus extra visual effects. It looks literally no different to me other than a few lighting effects, so I'm guessing that it will look amazing on the standard PS4 too.

If you liked Tomb Raider, this will blow you [and it] away.

Had a couple hours on it last night and you're right it looks stunning on the OG PS4!!

Great game so far but I've barely scratched the surface yet!!

Had a go on this at my mates house on Monday, The tutorial was a little too long for my liking but the graphics were very very nice and the game play was very good as well.
From what I saw looked like another very good Playstation exclusive title.

I'm addicted. It's Far Cry 4 does Red Dead Redemption with dinosaurs. smile

If you're being really picky you could say that that it feels slightly rushed out the door, with some of the transitions from cutscene in/out of gameplay feeling a little clunky every now and then; not to mention the water rabbit I met tonight... grin

But it's completely forgiveable when the level of detail is so phenomenal; those vistas! It's so immersive, but then I always liked the premise. Machines taking over the world has been done to death. But machine dinosaurs? What's not to like.

Really? I didn't think it was very long. A lot of cutscenes setting up the characters if that's what you mean, but I enjoyed it. As "The Last of Us" showed with it's prologue, if you can hook people into the characters rather than "the story", right from the get go, they invest in it for the duration.

Compared to the towers in Far Cry 4 and Dying Light, opening the map is a lot more challenging in this game. Nothing wrong with the tower approach, I enjoyed it in both those games, Far Cry particularly. But climbing these "Tallnecks" takes planning, patience, and then timing of execution.

This definitely wasn't my first attempt!

Yeah just a lot of cut scenes and it was all a little too slow for my liking like when you first scan the enemy movements etc.
When the game properly starts it was a great game.
"The Last of Us" prologue was about as good as it got for me, There wasn't really much to do in it but the story was amazing, Didn't really think much of the people in this one TBH.
