Summary: Ghost of Tsushima is one of the best samurai games ever made, and a great way to close out the PS4's incredible run of exclusive titles. It has its flaws, but most critics had a great time overall.

Beautiful Open World

The game's diverse world is filled with beautiful visuals and vistas.

Sense of Style

Ghost of Tsushima commits to its samurai style in both its storytelling and combat with great success.

Repetitive Side Quests

As the game goes on, some of its side activities and gameplay loops begin to feel repetitive.

In the late 13th century, the Mongol empire has laid waste to entire nations along their campaign to conquer the East. Tsushima Island is all that stands between mainland Japan and a massive Mongol invasion fleet led by the ruthless and cunning general, Khotun Khan. As the island burns in the wake of the first wave of the Mongol assault, samurai warrior Jin Sakai stands as one of the last surviving members of his clan. He is resolved to do whatever it takes, at any cost, to protect his people and reclaim his home. He must set aside the traditions that have shaped him as a warrior to forge a new path, the path of the Ghost, and wage an unconventional war for the freedom of Tsushima. • In War-Torn Tsushima, Ancient Beauty Endures: In this open-world action adventure, you’ll roam vast countrysides and expansive terrain to encounter rich characters, discover ancient landmarks, and uncover the hidden beauty of Tsushima. • The Rise of the Ghost: In his quest to reclaim Tsushima, Jin must seek support from old friends and new unlikely allies. He must break away from tradition, become a new kind of warrior, and protect what’s left of his home at all costs. • Mud, Blood, and Steel: Challenge opponents with your katana for an immersive samurai combat experience, master the bow to eliminate distant threats, and develop stealth tactics to disorient and ambush enemies with surprise attacks.

Limited by a rote and rigid world, Sucker Punch's samurai homage pairs okay action with enjoyably committed, if awkwardly fawning melodrama.

Ghost of Tsushima is an excellent action game and its open world is one of the most gorgeous yet.

A competent but shallow and overfamiliar attempt to replicate Assassin's Creed style open world adventure in the world of 13th century samurai.

Ghost of Tsushima is quite possibly the most beautiful game I've played in terms of its outstanding visual fidelity and incredible depiction of feudal Japan that makes for genuinely awe stricken moments. The game in and of itself is very good, the combat is violent,swift and paired with the 4 stances makes for cinematic duels that are almost pulled from some of Kurosawa's greatest
10 / 10.0
Ghost of Tsushima review: . As always, start with the pros: The story of the game is beautiful and it shocks you with some of its events - Excellent characters like Shimura, Jin and others - Values ​​play in the game are terrible and varied - The fighting in the game is legendary and its methods are varied, and everything that progresses develops and becomes better.
The best samouraï experience I had as a gamer. Amazing japanese sceneries. Well designed and satisfying combat system, play it on "hard" if you can :) The story is ok and engaging, sidequests are high quality for the genre, and the smaller objectives are quick and fun. Enjoy!
85 / 100
I really enjoyed this open-world where you play as part-Samurai, part-Assassin. The protagonist is a little serious, but you'd expect that given the context. The island of Tsushima is very pretty, so the landscape is a joy to explore. The approach of the game is pretty traditional, so explore, defeat enemies, conquer territory. There's a great 'Japanese cinema' feel about the
