Ghost of Tsushima is an absolute fitting way to finish off the PS4's grand lifespan of First Party games, and this may be the best the best behind God of War. Sucker Punch have at least delivered their best work. Everything feels cinematic, which clearly the game takes inspiration from, not just a close attention to historical detail, but Akira Kurosawa movies as well (there is even a Kurosawa filter to play in grainy black and white, nice touch). The game feels grounded and the combat weighted and precise. The game is challenging without being frustrating. Early on three hits from Mongol grunts on medium saw Jin face down in the mud. The world is vibrant and beautiful, realistic and gritty. It is an pleasure to marvel at the scenery and skyboxes. I am only just passed the first section in the game and there is still so much to witness, but I can say without a shadow of a doubt that this is a game all PlayStation uses must play.
I will update this re view as I progress further into this absolute amazing game!
Got to thank Amazon for their service, for its unbeatable price and getting the game at my front door at 10am on Launch Day was a surprise indeed. I was expecting it to arrive late in the arvo. The pre order codes were sent a day early, too. Thank you
