I do like this a lot, I must say. And they've done an amazing job with the dinobots.

This game clearly shows its far cry influences. From collectibles, to 'radio towers', to 'strongholds' and the weapon wheel, it's full of reused mechanics. That's no bad thing though, they're all mechanics that work well. Combat is a fun combination of stealth and action, with plenty of scope for well thought-out tactics and also the ability to not really bother and just go in bludgeoning.
It's so very pretty, too.

I have a robot horsey!

The 'radio towers' are a bit more interesting though.

Well yes, indeed.

Also, did I say it was pretty? It''s actually stunning. I've never seen graphics like this on the PS4 before. I almost want to spend more time in camera mode than playing the game.

Only grouch so far is that the AI for human opponents is astonishingly dumb. What's that? There's a whistling noise coming from that pile of long grass with a suspicious pile of the bodies of my friends piled up next to it? I'd better go investigate on my own.

Better graphics than Uncharted 4?

I think so yes, in everything except facial animations. Which, given that UC4 is completely scripted, doesn't seem unreasonable.

It's a game with stealth in, the enemies have to be as dumb as rocks.

You normally at least need to hide bodies and the like though.

I'm okay with Glinthawks. I took down a thunderjaw with a fully loaded firecaster, in no hurry to do it again though.
Stormbirds can fuck off.

I'm coming up to the end of the story, and I've loved every minute of the 40 or so hours I've racked up.

I borrowed this from Craster, and I'm really, really enjoying it.

Kicked the shit out of a Thunderjaw with a bow and arrow last night, OORAH.

There's not a lot to dislike about this game. The name is stupid, sure. Thinking a bit harder: the lip-syncing is terrible and selling stuff to merchants is a pain in the arse and Aloy could do with a few more "spear" moves, but literally everything else about it is excellent.

And you don't even need to know that because fucking robot dinosaurs.

I was about twenty hours in when I finally decided to get the "Lure" skill.

Bit of a gamechanger, that one :facepalm:

Aloy is a rather attractive collection of pixels.

This is definitely one of my two games of the year (Nex Machina being the other).
I'm 40+ hours in, having finished the main campaign and now I'm carrying on wrapping up all the side missions and errands which is very unusual for me in a single player. Normally I'm looking to move on to the next game quite quickly.

I've only recently acquired this. It's good is it not!

I suspect the combat becomes a little unwieldy later so I'm paying close attention to my upgrades and I may sneak around first and try and get all the power cells for the invincibility armour...

Actually, it doesn't get too hard - some of the areas can be challenging, but you can steer clear of them. In the case of the Cauldrons those are meant to be hard :)

Cras - did I ever give this back to you?

I thought it was great for two days.

Then got distracted and didn't return.

I suspect I played it to close to nu Zelda, else it would have kept my attention longer.

Played this in a store, and it's probably the only game that makes me sad that I don't have a PS4. It reminded me mostly of The Witcher 3, and while not looking as good, it's still a great looking game, with a nice aesthetic and setting.

I'll play it in 2030 through an emulator, maybe.

Maybe comparing a PS4 game with TW3 on 1 year old PC isn't fair. But i think TW3 is still the best looking game around.

You can't, the last cell is about 75% of the way through the main questline.
