Great game for 9+ if mature and 11+ for anyone

Great game, amazing graphics, engaging story line and a bunch of fun. Combat mechanics are easy and well made. I started this game with no story/open world experience (except for minecraft) and I had a fun time and it didn’t take me long to get the hang of it. Tiny problem, I find the game had a bit too much use of ‘ass’ that’s all.

This is a great game and I sunk around 40 hours in without getting bored. Everyone should play this before the sequel comes out.

This game has great role models with going away from the over-sexualized video game woman, to a powerful capable person. No blood and not really many guns, not much killing of humans you are mostly dealing with machines.

Fun, if formulaic, open-world adventure.

Horizon Zero Dawn is a great game, but it's no masterpiece. The combat is exhilarating, the open-world is beautiful, and the concept is imaginative and original, but there's still some stuff weighing Horizon Zero Dawn down. Take the NPC interactions, for example. The characters are robotic and the voice-over doesn't match their lips at all. This isn't a huge deal, but it's something that critics seem to miss out on in their reviews. I think when they praise a game so much, they're afraid to give it any criticism at all, even if it's minor. Other issues include the heavily under-utilised melee combat system (that I barely used at all because it was so ineffective) and the formulaic structure that all open-world games seem to follow these days. It's not awful, and at least Zero Dawn puts its own fantasy/sci-fi spin on things, but it feels like I've played it dozens of times before. However, I'm not saying Horizon Zero Dawn is a bad game because, trust me, it isn't. There's so much to love here, from the effortless blend of fantasy and sci-fi to the intriguing storyline, but overall it just isn't as good as some people are saying. Overall, Horizon Zero Dawn is a great game, but it's undermined by a few annoying, if minor, flaws that stop it from being the incredible game it could have been.

Outstanding title

Horizon Zero Dawn is an incredible title that must be experienced by all. I found the controls very easy to pick up and the story/side quests will have you playing for hours. Violence is not bad compared to other teen titles, and blood is extremely subtle that I hadn’t even noticed it early in my play through. Players will fight both machines and humans. Also, sexual content is non existent with the exception of some AI having revealing outfits. Overall, a great experience that kids 10+ can enjoy.

How good horizon zero dawn is

This game is great it does have a lot of people dying but if you can take that hen you will love it it has an amazing story it is a beautiful post apocalyptic world it looks very beautiful and it also make you feel a lot of emotion like most games but in a different way if i told you than it would be a spoiler just see it for your self I really dont think its 16+ it should be like 12+ if you can handle the violence so the game is very good i give it a 10/10 also i thunk some specific characters should have lived longer

Very good game

Very enjoyable game, I pry stopped playing within a week though. The game started to become boring and repetive, same bosses and robots same landscapes. The game overall was really fun though, the combat mechanics were very decent and fun. I enjoyed how you could ride the robot's and junk. Overall I recommend this game 4/5, you should wait for the second one to come out though because it'll pry be a way better and there'll be a flying mount. THERE IS NO BLOOD besides just some on walls and the ground BUT THATS IT
