Join Aloy as she braves the Forbidden West - a majestic but dangerous frontier that conceals mysterious new threats. Explore distant lands, fight bigger and more awe-inspiring machines, and encounter astonishing new tribes as you return to the far-future, post-apocalyptic world of Horizon. The land is dying. Vicious storms and an unstoppable blight ravage the scattered remnants of humanity, while fearsome new machines prowl their borders. Life on Earth is hurtling towards another extinction, and no one knows why. It's up to Aloy to uncover the secrets behind these threats and restore order and balance to the world. Along the way, she must reunite with old friends, forge alliances with warring new factions and unravel the legacy of the ancient past - all the while trying to stay one step ahead of a seemingly undefeatable new enemy.

- beautiful game world with some unique settings/areas that I wasn't expecting. Honestly a quarter of my play through was spent climbing mountains and taking in the view (and photos)-super relaxing and fun!
-Zero Dawns soundtrack was great, this one manages to expand on it and combined with the visualsit brings the forbidden west to life.
-The writing for and performance of the characters is fantastic, they really came to life (even if one or two are criminally underused for some reason). Compared to ZD they look much more like people, aiding immersion.
-Combat is more challenging (on normal upward) and requires
that you invest resources in a range of weapons and upgrades to meet each encounter (as opposed to ZD, where you got the DLC weapons, upgraded them and then won every time)
-Much more variety in the puzzle sections (Relic Ruins, Cauldrons etc).
-The new machines offer different challenges and the old ones can still be as tough.
-The shieldwing adds layers to combat and makes exploration much more fun.
-Overall I liked the story.
- I could have done without melee pits being tied to a trophy. Melee is better in this game than ZD but still doesn't feel complete (let me press R3 to lock on to a character and use the shieldwing to block/parry!).
- Once you get 2/3 of the way through the story it seems to jump too quickly to the endgame, feels like something was cut. As a result, some of the reveals feel less earned/impactful.
- I liked it, but not everyone will appreciate the direction of the story compared to ZD.
-The racing league found the secret to Mario Kart Rubberbanding in an old world ruin.
-Aloy sounds like she is reading out a really detailed GameFAQs guide to herself throughout the whole game. It wears thin after a while.
-An option to zoom the in game camera/field of view out would be good
-Some of the side conent is fairly generic.
Overall I enjoyed the game a lot, but don't feel I gained anything by buying the premium edition. Expected a little more for the price.
Overall the game is worse than HZD, gave up after 18hrs. The more you progress the more the bugs become more apparent and everything about the game is frustrating and broken.
It has some Lazy AI which makes me laugh as they said it was a new AI system during development. Plenty of static and disappearing objects right in front of you, lazy NPC’s and dialogue “ignoring me again!” Is all the NPC’s say and there is a weird sense of “all men bad” vibe in this game, terrible writing overall, litterally dumb.
General boring gameplay with lazy NPC's outside of predefined cutscenes, immersion breaking bugs, forced political agenda scenes, boring story along with infuriating climbing and endless fetch quests.
Couldn't continue further
There is no reason whatsoever to pay £10 extra to get the standard PS5 edition. That said, I'm a fool and spent £20 extra on account of the nice case, PS5 disc edition (maybe one day I will sell it/give it away) and the art book.
The case is nice, the art book is fairly small, but does have some nice art and the disc, er, works.
If the above line sounds like its worth £20, buy it - if not, please save some money.
PS - Aloy why you so mad now? Calm down and be a bit nicer to everyone, geez
The reasons I have given 4.5 stars are mainly because of the non-existent underwater and flying combat. I assume that it was not finished in time or it was because of the dual development between PS5 and PS4, developing for the lowest common denominator. I believe if the game was a PS5 exclusive, we would have had underwater and flying combat in the game.
The sequel also has multiple slow starts compared to the first game and it's Nora grounds; there is a lengthy tutorial leading to a slitherfang fight, browsing around a repairing Meridian and the first main area of Barren Light.
Another minor reason is that the "Forbidden West", the area where Aloy decides to travel to find Faro's tomb, is a far smaller land surface compared to the main land in the game, and they are separated by a huge mass of water with a tiny bit of land in between (for two 'flying mount' side quests). There are no unique machines in the land as well (for example the first time you normally see a slaughterspine, it is based on the main land right next to the spot needed to travel to said Forbidden West, so it's not uniquely situated in the Forbidden West).
Having finished the story and the Platinum trophy, it's definitely worth playing and buying for 60 hours of solid open world gameplay.
