This game is just mid at best, yeah sure it is very pretty but the rest of it is kinda bland.
I didn't feel like I got much of a challenge out of it even with being on hard if anything it was just long and about halfway through the main campaign I got bored and took a break before coming back a week later to finish it off.
I mean I really enjoyed Zero Dawn but this one kinda just misses the mark.
The most densely detailed video game open world I've experienced thus far, spectacularly imaginative enemy design, and a strong female lead make for a very enjoyable game. Some drawbacks are the artificial-feeling side characters, forgettable story, and nonsensical enemy motivation for the final boss battle. Combat with human foes can also feel lackluster and movement can be janky at times.
I couldn't finish this game. There were several ruins I came across early in the game that I didn't have the gear to access. When it happened the first time, I thought well whatever I'll just come back later I guess. When it happened the second time I was annoyed. The writing is really forgettable, the combat is decently fun, the visuals are gorgeous, the monster designs are cool, but the package as a whole just didn't inspire me to continue playing the game as I looked at how large the map was.
