Only a few days until the release of the ambitious action-adventure in the open-world Horizon Forbidden West, and many specialist critics have already managed to pass their verdict on the new creation of guerrilla games.
Horizon Forbidden West has collected 92 reviews on Metacritic: per version for PS5 received 91 ratings and PS4 – alone for now. The average game rating is 89% (PS5). Horizon Zero Dawn for the release also deserves it 89%.
Remember that life in Horizon Forbidden West is on the brink of another extinction, and in order to save everyone, the machine tamer Aloy must go to unknown lands – the so-called Forbidden West.
The reviewers liked the huge open world, intriguing story and well-developed characters, extensive side quests, combat system that doesn’t bother you to the end, quality of graphics and animation.
Horizon Forbidden West’s shortcomings include the compromises of the PS4 to PS5 transition period, excessive map load, climbing restrictions, not too much innovation, and various technical issues.
3DNews reviewer Alexei Likhachev was delighted with Horizon Forbidden West, calling it a big, rich, insanely beautiful and very ambitious game where almost everything is performed at the highest level.
Horizon Forbidden West release is expected on February 18th this year simultaneously on PS4 and PS5 – users have access to a free upgrade. Previously, the list of trophies in the game became known.
