    Picked it up last week and have enjoyed it so far. Large open world (USA) improved storyline and quests than the original, a bit more freedom to roam where ya want.

    It’s kept all the best bits of the original but made room for some improvements. The battle system seems more organised than before.

    I loved first one, I've ordered Elden ring to try but I'm * at they souls games but I'd like to give it a go first before horizon. Is it better or worse than first one?

    The original is excellent, I have opted for Elden Ring like Indiana and will get this later.

    I'm torn between this and Elden Ring. Not sure which one to get.

    I’ll never complete Elden ring so I’m in no rush to get it. Always found the series impossible to master.

    Picked it up on friday...

    Gotta say...LOTS of bugs.

    Icons wont * off after completed.

    screen goes black randomly every hour or so for a few seconds.

    Aloy keeps repeating random phrases over and over.

    rendering is sometimes delayed ie enter an area, houses etc pop up out of nowhere.

    Crashed twice and im about 20 hours in.

    They've also changed the climbing mechanics... And its * infuriating. Swimming is also a pain in the *.

    I started gaming in the 90's. When you bought a game and it was * finished.

    But its gorgeous, combat is improved and the story seems good so far, although a little rushed in the beginning.

    Id say, honestly, im regretting not springing for Elden Ring first. But im keeping that for my summer off, when i go back to Ireland and wont have work / wifey getting on my *.

    Yeah lol, as you said you bought a game and it was done back then now its a * show most of the time.

    Thankfully time I get round to buying this itll be months away so will get it fairly cheap, just starting to have too many games to get through.

    Am looking forward to it the first game was terrific.

    15 hours or so into this. Immense so far.

    Everything feels like an improvement on what was already a phenomenal game.
