I feel like I should like HZD a lot, but…..

It’s weird, I picked up the game from a friend who swore by it and I really got into it at first. Spent a lot of time and damn near finished the game but as it went on, I liked it less and less.

Credit where it’s due, I thought the story was quite good. And for what it’s worth, it’s a ‘cool’ game in many ways. Loved the female lead too, what a refreshing change.

But apart from that, I found it flawed in so many ways. Most of all the combat just… well sucked. That’s the biggest dealbreaker for me. Maybe it’s my fault that I hold it up to the standard of something like 2018 GoW. There was so much potential for some incredible combat but it just didn’t feel that great. It was slow, sluggish, and irritating. Looting was an absolute b!tch.

Dialogue interactions and performances were poor imho, felt so very robotic and uninspiring. Some of the robots towards the end just got plain irritating to deal with. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve dealt with many irritating things on higher difficulties in other titles, but this just felt like a chore. Overall it just failed to keep me interested after a point and it really felt like a grind despite a story I really liked.

By no means is it a bad game and I can see why people go crazy over the game. I feel like I should be too, but meh. I can’t put my finger on what exactly it is but I don’t look at it that way. I’m NOT hating on the game, I just hope they fix these in the sequel.

Would love to hear if anyone else felt similarly about the game.
