Combat, lore and the story were really good. That's what kept me playing.

But dialogues, quests, traversal were much worse. I had fun with it once and it is enough.


Although the expansion was better. Dialogues were more interesting, it had snow and Aloy was also a bit different. If you haven't played it I would suggest to try it.

I played it back when it came on out PS4 pro and I couldn't get into it. 30 FPS for a fast paced combat game such as this made the game more difficult for no reason. I dropped it about 5-10 hours in. I recently re purchased it for PC and the gameplay is now a lot more fun with smooth framerates. The story and the worldbuilding turned out to be much more interesting than I initially thought too once I left the initial zones. I find it a lot similar to newer assasin's creed games but it's higher in quality and shorter (which is a win for me). The only thing that's glaring as dated was climbing, the fact that I have to find climbing spots in general exploration is not very 2020. I think Zelda Breath of the Wild did this the best, without making it too easy like in assasin's creed. I hope they improve this in the next game.
