I ended up dropping it to Story mode. Got tired of shooting enemies with 50 arrows just to take down one, while 5 monkey machines are lobbing autotracking fireballs at me. Game is so much better now.

I think I played the whole game on Easy mode. Was thinking the same as you at the beginning before I started. Plus I wanted to finish it before Elden Ring came out 😬

I am tempted at times to drop it down from normal but so far so good lol...when you get purple or even good blue weapons,it goes quicker killing stuff...also full concentration to slow things down is great...and those Spikes throws,chefs kiss lol,no wonder you only have 8 ammo at the start.

I could finish the main story soon but I keep doing sidequests and running to question marks... ;)

I dropped it down to easy a while ago, when several machines start coming at you it doesn't take long to die lol.

I don't mind hard games, like Dark Souls for example. But as I stated earlier the difficulty in this just seems cheesy difficult and not necessarily skill based. I don't remember the original Horizon being that difficult. This seems more on pace with the DLC if anything.

Those monkeyish machines are pretty tough and they are fast, I've gotten to where some of the lower level ones can be taken out in 2 shots but those guys can do some damage fast.

Pictures don't do this game justice at all, I've taken some but the game looks so much better when playing than it does in still shots. I am sharing a couple here, I never noticed she sweats when she's running around in the desert.

After spending more time on this game at Story difficulty it is more enjoyable. Story is hilariously easy but I've made my decision. I felt like I was in a rut otherwise, seemingly having to confront every battle the same. Now I'm trying out different weapons and elements without having to worry much. Plus it's fun to just enjoy the great story these games have. I finished up the second of the three missions you receive at once, and that one was interesting. Also nice to breathe underwater now.

Just finished this,what an amazing game,clocked at 100 hours,with 85% of trophies done...the plat is out of reach for me.I had no problems on normal but thats because I have a Legendary Spike Thrower,this thing breaks the game almost lol.

Most beautiful game ever,the sidequests where great,especially the cut scenes during them...even the end credits where fantastic lol.

Cant wait for the last part in 4/5 years I guess.

Now do I start Elden Ring or Cyberpunk...

What do you mean by Plat being out of reach? I haven't looked at the trophy list but it sounded similar to the first game where you could get everything if you spent the time. The only one I heard could be missable is scanning machines since a few are specific to a mission.

Once I finish it Elden Ring and CyberPunk are next up for me and I think I'll go with CyberPunk since I just beat Demon's Souls end of last year.

Already burned out at like 18 hours-ish. I'll keep it installed for awhile and see if I get back to it sometime.

I missed one machine scan I believe and mostly though its because I dont want to do the Hunting grounds and melee strikes and so on...or ride all machine that can be mountable.
