Nixxes once again does an impeccable job. An exceptional port of a great adventure, with all the content included, which also has a great optimization to work very well in different configurations. Without a doubt, PlayStation should make them the only studio tasked with porting their games to PC.

Guerrilla and Nixxes surprise us with a port that is not only very solid, but also offers options to give and give away. Undoubtedly, this is the best way to enjoy Horizon Forbidden West if you have a high-performance PC.

Horizon Forbidden West is a great open world adventure, especially as a sequel, with all the slow motion dino hunts you loved last time but bigger, all the noble questing but nobler, and all the high stakes raised even higher.

Horizon Forbidden West on PC is another incredible port from Nixxes. It successfully brings the Horizon Forbidden West experience to PC with a ton of content and tremendous performance. It's a must-buy for anyone that enjoyed the original, and it should leave fans excited to see what the studio is able to pull off with its upcoming Ghost of Tsushima PC port.

Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition is an incredibly polished PC port with all the bells and whistles you could possibly ask for. It looks and runs incredibly, with the ability to tweak visuals and performance to suit your device. Nixxes continues their perfect streak of ports, and this is a fantastic way to experience Aloy's second adventure.

This PC release is the definitive version of Horizon Forbidden West. It looks fantastic, runs brilliantly, and tells one of the more compelling action RPG stories I’ve yet played. Aloy and friends are great characters, and the Horizon world is enticing by design. It’s not smashing through genre barriers by any means, but the systems are expertly balanced and exciting to engage with. It stands toe to toe with the best open world games of all time, and Guerrilla’s trajectory suggests their next effort will be even better.

Horizon Forbidden West is utterly gorgeous and builds on the original's intense combat, but a lack of ambition and a flat narrative hold it back as a sequel. It provides more of the first game but bigger, with a few new inclusions struggling against the tidal wave of familiarity.

Horizon: Forbidden West Complete Edition is a very good game, and the PC is the best version of that game thus far. The adventure is engaging overall, even if there are some things that could've been improved. The flexibility of the PC means that there's no longer a compromise between choosing resolution over frame rate. It is an excellent open-world game overall, and we can't wait to see another sequel.

If you liked the first Horizon game and want to re-enter the ruined world dominated by mechanical dinosaurs, the second game and expansion has already arrived on PC. And it is of good quality, but the price could have been lower.

Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition is another great port from Sony and another success from the PlayStation PC initiative. With a vast amount of adjustable graphics options, support for high frame rates and remarkable scalability, the sequel to Aloy's adventure impresses and establishes itself not only as one of the most beautiful games of all time, but also as an adventure recommended for everyone enthusiasts of a good adventure in a fascinating open world. Considering the quality of the adaptation, I can say: this is not only the complete edition as advertised, but the definitive one. Patience, in this case, was rewarded.

The core game is extremely well made and improves so much over the original game. Where Forbidden West is lacking, the Burning Shores DLC makes up for to give the game that fire that was needed. While this game doesn’t recapture the same mystery or have the same revelations as Horizon Zero Dawn , Horizon Forbidden West has a compelling narrative that takes you to new places in its world you have to see for yourself. I stand by the fact that Sony’s games are better on PC with all the additional bells and wheels, and this is yet another shining example, because Horizon Forbidden West Complete Edition is easily one of the best ports and open worlds around.
