First let me say this is by no means a comprehensive review. I played about 5 hours and these are simply my first impressions but I will have a full review later next week, there is a lot of ground to cover in this game both literally and metaphorically and I don’t want to miss anything. That being said I will post links to the game on Amazon for those that want to help us out and buy the game, since it is already being touted as the game of the year, and by some the game of the generation. So without further wait, here we go.
First, I should state I am playing on PlayStation 4 on a 4k t.v. and the game is possibly the most beautiful I have ever played. From the snow sticking to your cloths and the mud and the dirt clinging to your horse. I thought many of the praises people sang in this department were exaggerated, they are not. You are in for a treat here.
All the graphics in the world however mean nothing if the story and controls mean nothing. The story so far is solid but to be 100% honest I have no played enough to truly comment on this. I won’t say how it starts to much as I don’t want to spoil it, but the start of the game sets it up nicely and will teach you how things work fairly well, tho I do wish some things were explained a bit better, but that is strictly a personal thing. Half my friends have this game and I am the only one to think so.
The controls, well truly this is the best a horse has ever controlled in history of gaming I think tho admittedly the carriages are a bit stiff and I did get one stuck. Aside from the one thing the controls are fluid and responsive, the aiming works amazingly and I never felt like me dying or falling was anything other than my own fault.
As I said earlier this isn’t a full review and much of this could change, but as for now I don’t see any way this isn’t game of the year as it is absolutely amazing so far. Picking this one up seems to be a a great call. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory, and remember feel free to check out the links for Amazon.
