Elite: Dangerous has been out now for around 3 years. It’s had a lot happen over the course of it’s life and the developers don’t look to be slowing down any time soon. I’m reviewing this game as it is now, in 2017. I’ve had a nosey around the net, and the majority of reviews are from the early days and might not necessarily remain relevant in the game’s current climate. So, I’m going to review this one right from where I’ve started playing, 3 years on after some of the niggles have been ironed out.
I picked up the Deluxe Edition of the game on the Xbox One. This versions comes with the core game, the Season Pass, the Arena DLC and the Horizons expansion. Ohh, and some redundant liveries for some of the game’s vehicles.
First things first, 10-hours is not a long time in this game.
I know, I know! You’re sick to death of hearing me ramble on about Call Of Duty and I promise I’ll stop, right after this.
I’ve slurped through 10 hours of gameplay on this game like it was nothing, honestly it’s barely touched the sides. Modern Warfare Remastered feels like an awkward game to talk about; am I just reviewing the 2007 classic, or this newly remastered version that feels almost identical in every single way. Actually, I’ll run with the latter. This post is under the assumption that you’ve played the original, which I’d imagine is the case for 99.9% of the gaming community. So, I suppose I’ll jump straight in head first and try to make sense of it all.
I’ve managed to plow in over 10 hours of gameplay into Horizon Zero Dawn, so what are my thoughts?
What can I say about this game that hasn’t already been said? Very little it seems, but I can at least offer my opinions on what I think makes this game so good and also what features are really starting to grind my gears.
