Horizon: Zero Dawn (PC) Review – Make the World Better, Before it Ends

 Walking a Fine Line

If you have yet to undergo the breathtaking journey that Horizon: Zero Dawn provides, you’ve been missing out. The story of Aloy and her quest to uncover her mysterious past, while taking place in a brilliant amalgamation of ancient civilizations and future utopias, is unlike anything before it. You’ll find Zero Dawn consistently ending up on many critics’ “top games of the generation” list. And if you spend any time at all within its world, it isn’t hard to see why.


Final Thoughts

If Guerrilla Games hopes to maintain a grasp on its prospective fanbase’s attention, they’ll need to put a hefty amount of work into Horizon: Zero Dawn PC. The journey itself is as incredible as ever. And if you’ve got a computer that can run the damn thing, you’re in for the pinnacle of the series. But for everyone else, I’m not altogether convinced that in its current state, spending the extra money on the PC edition is wholly justified. For now, I’d quietly keep my distance and anticipate further updates.

The Good

  • Gorgeous Visuals
  • Deep Settings Options
  • Every Piece of Content Included

The Bad

  • Optimization Issues
  • Keyboard Doesn’t Translate Well
  • Unreasonably Difficult to Achieve 60 FPS

Score: 79/100
