    Horizon Zero Dawn is that rare gem of a game: it’s the one you make an exception for, it’s the one you just have to keep going back to, no matter how much you’ve seen of it before, and now, we have the ultimate version of the game on PC.

    Horizon: Zero Dawn actually exceeded my high expectations. A great game that hardly ever makes mistakes.

    Horizon Zero Dawn is already an exceptional game in its own right, but on PC it is easily the better experience. Whether gamers weren't interested the first time around or they don't have a PS4 but do have a PC, this is still a must-play. Even those that enjoyed Horizon Zero Dawn will find that the PC version brings some new layers to the table thanks to the higher frame rate and improved visuals. The game still adheres to the open-world mold a little more than some might hope, but the environments, story, and gameplay help elevate it enough to be memorable.

    If you don't have a PS4 or just want to enjoy the game on PC with better graphics, Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition would be perfect for you.

    Despite some of my qualms with the production and PC port quality, I highly recommend picking up Horizon: Zero Dawn for the PC. Yes, there is some risk of encountering the issues that others have seen, but fortunately, Steam's generous refund system serves as a comforting protection against wasted money. Overall, it's an easy recommendation for all cohorts of gamers. Players who didn't have a PS4 can experience a well-crafted world with a captivating story to flesh it out, and those who already played it back in 2017 might still enjoy the PC version's improved visuals and frame rate. This is a great way to refresh your memory on Aloy's adventures before the sequel releases in 2021 for PS5.

    On a modern computer, Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition looks absolutely stunning, thanks to new visual options - more frames per second, adjustable FOV... There are some technical flaws, but it doesn't prevent from enjoying Aloy's Adventure and its magnificent post-apocalyptic open world, even if it feels a bit redundant and not that refreshing in terms of stage work and dialogues.

    A very workmanlike open-world game. Great to look at, competent overall, and charming when it tries something new, but formulaic when it doesn’t - which is most of the time.

    One of the best games i have ever played, which isn't that hard because i'm pretty fresh player. Playing this game was fantastic experience. IOne of the best games i have ever played, which isn't that hard because i'm pretty fresh player. Playing this game was fantastic experience. I didn't have too many problems with FPS. I have RTX 2070 and Ryzen 9 3900X. Story of this game could be sci-fic book, it's so good. I was interested in that story cause there was always something that i didn't know. Mechanics of battle is one of the best if not the best. To kill ,most of the robots at least, first time when you encounter them, you can't just spam arrows into their body. You must have a tactic. That's amazing. One main problem was the facial expressions. Characters were ussualy dead inside. I'm sorry if i made some grammarly mistakes. I'm not native speaker in english, but i wanted to give my review to as many people as possible. Hope you enjoy that game as good as me. I made this game on 100% DLC and the main part. Expand

    The game is great, but the big minus is I can't choose whether I want to play for a girl or a boy..

All my "game life" I play for men and now I play for a girl?! = -30%..I must also remind you that I have not seen so many ugly characters in the game for a long time as here. I would also like the opportunity to choose the type of game characters depending on which part of the world I live in.. = -15%.. total score = 55% Expand

    Short version : the port is terrible

    Long version : The performance is terrible even for rigs that have hardware much better than the "recommended one" . Constant crashes. Some in game animations are locked to 30 fps ,graphical bugs etc . And dont forget : this is a 2017 game , not a 2020 one.

    On top of it all, some users myself included get save system errors which according to suggestions can only be solved by disabling anti virus ( shady).

    Last but not least all the above for the nice price of 50 bucks when you can get the PS4 version for 20. I said to myself that the improved experience of a PC would make it worth it and paid no mind, but with the port being so terrible its actually more enjoyable to return back to the ps4 for this title.

    3/10 because I KNOW its a good game, when it actually works.

Выкатили новость в твиттере, мол работают над патчем, ЕЩЕ БЫ ВЫ НЕ РАБОТАЛИ. ИНДИ разработчики делают подобные патчи за пару дней, сейчас прошла почти неделя, НЕДЕЛЯ КАРЛ. И это крупная студия? И это бывший эксклюзив от Сони? Это самый настоящий плевок в лицо от разработчиков. Я всех призываю обрушить оценку игры до минимума, пока вы будете жрать ****но с ложки они дальше будут так поступать! Самое ужасное, что не объявлены сроки, многие купили игру и безответно ждут новостей. Не позволяйте разработчикам Вас игнорировать! МЫ НЕ БУДЕМ РАБАМИ Expand
