Forbidden West is a game that surpasses Zero Dawn in every aspect and at the same time it is that game's direct continuation. The sequel encourages you to get to know the story of the red-haired Aloy from the very beginning.
Immediately after launching the sequel, you will notice the quite astonishing graphics. This also applies to the PS4 version. And that's not just a matter of technology. A big impact on the fact that the game looks absolutely beautiful is the design of the costumes, enemies and the open world itself. Exactly – open world. This is another game with a huge area to explore, but it has a lot of freshness to it as well. The machines we fight mainly with various bows haven't had a chance to recover yet, and tearing off elements of their armor is as enjoyable as before. Even the most clichéd mechanics known from other sandboxes are attractive. Mainly due to their refinement.
The appealing force of Horizon Forbidden West is also its plot, specifically its scale. Not once or twice does one get the impression that they are taking part in truly epic events, which will forever be etched in the history of the post-apocalyptic world. There are also moments of downtime. During them, you can engage in diving or climbing.
Everyone who has completed Forbidden West knows perfectly well that in the future we are in for another, third encounter with Aloy. Before that moment comes, though, there will be enough time to clear the map of Forbidden West of all markers.
