I feel like most anons here are literal nickpicking at this game for bullshit reasons( just like most SJW do for most games), so I gonna give you a honest review.
Is not in any way a bad game. It's a solid 6 or 7 tops.
My biggest beefs with it. 1) Is it's too fucking easy. If you're familiar with games like Cuphead, Dark Souls, Bloodborne, or Nioh. You will be able to defeat most machines by dodge roll and timing your attacks with your spear. Even on it's hardest setting, you'll be coasting through easily. Not like thats a bad thing all the time. Killing three Rockcrushes on horseback is a fucking blast.
2) It's a open world but it's fucking linear. You see a giant mountain in the distance. You'll probably want to climb it, unfortunetly you won't be able to unless to approach it proper linear way. The game basically limits player creativity. You'll have to walk around the mountain until you see the designated yellow climbing signs (ropes, etc). Scaling mountains, buildings, and machines, are too fucking easy. Alloy has limitless stamina so you can just hang on any ledge forever. Push up on toggle and she'll scale any height with ease. You don't time or press anything. There is no sense of scale conquest like Shadow of Colossus or Monster Hunter.
Other than that. The game is beautiful, weapons are cool, the story is unique ( YOU'RE FIGHTING ROBOT DINOS, COME ON!), the OST is solid, (all the NPCS suck ass) and Alloy is charming as fuck. She really is. I went overly kind route with her. She is pure.
Most the beefs here are BAWWW Feminism and BOOOO NIG NOGS! Seriously? First off men didn't ruin the world. Everyone working at Faro did.If you read the numerous texts. Everyone dropped the ball there, and continued to fuck up by allowing billions of people to be slaughtered while the worked on Zero Dawn. Sobeck is bitch man. It was her plan to let billions of innocent people die fighting for a lie while she and few other people stayed safe in a bunker while she created STONG INDEPENDENT BLACK WOMAN WHO NEED NO MAN ROBOT to rebirth the planet. Heartless cunt.
So yeah, there is a lot of feminism bullshit in this game. But it's not as annoying as it or as bluntly forced as many other current female lead stories. Alloy entire society worships the All Mother. So most women are raised to gathers, nurturers, etc. Men will make comments all the time about her fighting and trying to hunter lodge blah blah. But she proves each time, and the guys come around to that. It's no where as annoying as say Super Girl or Jessica Jones. Where the guys are like HURR DURR FEMALE to fucking overpowered superhuman.
Also all minorities, gays, trans, etc. All that bullshit is there. It's not forced down throat though. And honestly if that stuff will ruin a game for you then you really are no better than SJW who refuse to play video games simply because the MC is while and male.
TLDR it's a decent open world game.
