Horizon Forbidden West review
If you’d like to know my thoughts after more than 70 hours on the path with Aloy, you can do so by reading my Horizon Forbidden West review. I played the game on a PS5 with a 55” 4K display, spending most of my time in Performance mode. Even if you’ve already purchased the game, I’d love to hear your thoughts on my review. Check it out and leave a comment. If you’d rather watch a YouTube video instead of reading, it’s embedded just above.
