    Agreed, the thing is that it's an exceptional game that I do love.

    Some folk can't accept any criticism of it though. For instance you mention anything slightly negative and folk have a melt down.

    The Last of Us must be pretty close.

    I was quite fortunate with that game, as i missed it on PS3 so had to get it on PS4 instead:D. Also last night finished off my new game plus on super duer hard difficulty. Wasn't that hard TBH, lack of enemy health bars was the hardest thing about it.

    After finishing it, i believe its setup for a sequel (in a good way not a cheesy one).

    Has to be the greatest PS4 game. When you take into account it’s a brand new IP then it really is incredible. Aloy is up there with the great video game characters such as Nathan Drake imo. Hopefully they keep it up in the sequel. Must be so difficult to make a great original game so it’s an amazing achievement. Whether it’s because I played it on the pro in hdr I don’t know but the Gfx were the ps4’s Best so far (better than GOW imo). Thought the story was brilliant and loved the combat.

    I agree it's a great game and story but I disagree on the characters, particularly Aloy. I found them all quite plastic, samey and the voice acting was uninspiring.

    Agreed. I'm really looking forward to the sequels to this and Zelda.

    Yeah I have to agree, recently started to try this again from the start as Zelda won it for me back when they released so close together that I never returned to this.

    The conversations are so stale/lifeless for the most part. The main character is well voiced, it's just the weird animations during conversations kill it for me in that respect.

    It's clearly a good game, I'm going to get God of war wrapped up first then properly try and get into this. Do get fed up with her banging on about her "focus" all the time :D but a small gripe

    I agree she is pretty boring along with the majority of characters, Witcher 3 i felt was the better game even though HZD was more polished and W3 was janky at times it had me actually feeling something as the people acted like real people, i just hope HZD is not a sign of the future of games where everyone acts like robots.

    Voice acting in HZD was OK, but I think other titles are far better. UC4, TLOU, Witcher 3 (except cheesy geralt!).

    HZD is a great new IP but definitely room for improvement. For example towns were very superficial and seemed to have very few buildings that could be entered and NPC's were always the same day or night. It felt very one dimensional. Not sure how badly hardware limited design choices but I would have preferred to see better towns.

    Not enough caves and areas to explore for my liking either. I really felt they could have brought the back story to life in a more diverse and interesting way. There are so many cool things they could have done.

    HZD real stars are the Robot dinos and the World they are set in.
