After turning heads with a stunning 2015 reveal, PlayStation 4 exclusive Horizon: Zero Dawn has publicly stuck its robotic head into the figurative sand. Fans wouldn't be blamed for growing hesitant in the quiet months since. A playable slice of this open-world adventure game's combat underwhelmed in late 2015, and a launch delay from last holiday season to February 28 made us wonder if Guerrilla Games (makers of the Killzone shooter series) might ultimately disappoint its hopeful fans.
Thankfully, Sony and Guerrilla let us dive in to the apparently lengthy game from the start last week, with a four-hour long, go-to-town play session with the "near-final" version of the game. After this extended slice of the game, I can't wait to play it again.
