So I finished Horizon Forbidden West, and while it wasn’t the sweeping epic that God of War was, I still enjoyed it.
I think my problem has to do with the balance between the quest and the grind. Open world games don’t always get it right. With HFW, I found myself grinding for the best weapons and armor, but hitting brick walls that I thought would be removed by progressing the story.
And then the game was over.
So I don’t know. The grind didn’t seem worth it. Finishing the story didn’t seem to require the BEST weapons or BEST armor.
Still, a great game, and I spent HOURS playing it. Definitely worth the buy.
