Reviewing the roundup of Horizon Restricted West – here’s what the critics think

Sony’s first major release of 2022 is Horizon Forbidden West, which launches on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 this week. But what do critics think of Guerrilla’s long-awaited sequel? PlayStation-exclusive reviews have started appearing online ahead of its February 18 release.

At GameSpot, our Forbidden West review gave this game an 8/10. Commentator Phil Hornshaw said: “Horizon Forbidden West does more right than wrong. It may be packed with things to see, do, know and remember, but when its many systems combine in Together, it can be a beautiful, exciting and enjoyable open-world experience.”

Forbidden West found success following 2017’s Zero Dawn event, which was a huge success, selling more than 20 million copies and reaching 1 billion hours of playtime. Sony is looking to expand the series even further, developing the PlayStation VR 2 game Call of the Mountain for Sony’s next-generation VR platform.

Forbidden West brings back the original voice actors, including Ashly Burch as Aloy and Lance Reddick as Sylens. The new cast includes Carrie-Anne Moss of The Matrix and Angela Bassett of Black Panther.

Game Points – 8/10

“The stories that drive you across the frontier are generally well told and focus well on actual characters rather than audio logs, and while the map is full of icons, more often they are fun, carefully crafted diversions than random of” — Phil Hornshaw [Full review]

Stevivor — 6.5/10

“It’s a game of contrasts. A game about robot dinosaurs where you spend too much time fighting robot meerkats and boars for some reason. A game with great voice acting and you start to hate it because some characters don’t Will shut up. Where side quests are great, but they’re so simple that they feel pointless. Combat features a complex balance of elemental strengths and weaknesses, but you can ignore all of that with a ton of explosive spearheads.” – – Job Gilroy [Full review]


Game Bolts — 10/10

“Horizon Forbidden West is an impressive achievement in storytelling, game design and technology, and improves upon its predecessor in nearly every possible way, delivering the best game of its kind in recent memory. One of the games.” — Shubankar Parijat [Full review]

The Telegraph – 3/5

“Of course, fans will love it, and rightly so. Horizon Forbidden West delivers more of what they liked in Game 1 – more, more – and does it better at most things Also bigger. But though there are many” — Dan Silver [Full review]

Gaming Radar – 4.5/5

“What Guerrilla Games has achieved here is simply phenomenal. The story, gameplay, mechanics and the world itself are improvements over the original game – a feat in itself. Ironically, the climb is the only real stop It’s totally perfect stuff, but that’s not enough for Aloy’s latest story to have nothing top recommendation. You know a game is good first when robotic dinosaurs aren’t something you want to talk about with your friends.” — Sam Loveridge [Full review]

MMORPGs — 9.5/10

“Horizon: Forbidden City was everything I wanted, from the follow-up to the excellent Zero Dawn, from the twisty story and intense combat to the unforgettable character cast. Playing this for the first time felt like being back on a bike, before so I’ve been on a field trip with Aloy for a long time as I have been before. There were a few technical blunders and some of Aloy’s dialogue sounded grudging, but most of the game was simply fantastic. I can’t wait to get back to this world after Zero Dawn Horizon, and now I can’t wait to come back again after playing the Forbidden City.” — Jason Fanelli [Full review] Jason also writes for GameSpot. receive a commission from retail offers.
