Painfully average open world game. Beautiful graphics and art direction, but gameplay and characters are uninspired.

Better in some ways than the original game, but the story absolutely sucks imo. Still decent fun, but the grinding is a pain

It's Mass Effect 2 all over again. I'm awed at just how much they could make this series better. It makes the first game look abysmal
The side quests are more interesting and memorable, the main characters both old and new are wonderful, there is a shit ton more machines, the world is like 5x bigger it might as well be fucking to scale to Nevada, melee combat is more than 2 buttons, razor boomerang blades are fun af, and most of all for me was the fucking animations.
Whoever animated this game deserves a fucking raise because literally every little emotion, dialoge, detail, action, idle, etc is animated so well. No more wax models standing at attention talking to eachother, I'm talking animation so well done that they you don't see the same motion twice in dialogue.
The main story isn't anything too amazing, I'll admit. They create some really cool ideas or potentially great moments for characters but then kinda ignore them or move on. It's still pretty decent for what it is, though. In fact my favorite part involves art history lessons given to Aloy.
Just gotta say I'm excited for any DLC they do and even more so for the final third of this. This game feels way more memorable than the first which is important because I literally didn't know anyone or any of the lore besides Erend and the opening area of the first game. The hints at the next game look promising and I just hope we don't have anymore global contastrophies to push this one back.
P.s. paragliding

I'm not sure why I platinumed this game, given that it is guilty of all the annoying open world adventure game tropes I am so tired of. Perhaps the fact that it is so mindless made it easy to pick up at the end of the day. There is not much to recommend this game beyond some OK combat.

Everything is perfect except story telling ..

Mejor que su antedecesor en todo, y encima, no repite el mismo mapa. Las máquinas si que podían haber tenido alguna variedad más pero bueno, quizás no cogí a su predecesor en un buen momento. Me gustó mucho más que este en todos los aspectos.
