Ghost of Tsushima
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.
Top Critic Average
Ghost of Tsushima is an excellent action game and its open world is one of the most gorgeous yet.
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 the samurai Assassin's Creed Ubisoft will wish it had made
A competent but shallow and overfamiliar attempt to replicate Assassin's Creed style open world adventure in the world of 13th century samurai.
At turns both melancholy and thrilling, Ghost of Tsushima is the open-world action formula at its most mature and immersive. Deep, rewarding, and hard to put down
Ghost of Tsushima offers a lovely world to explore, and there’s value in that, but it should have been so much more than a checklist of activities to accomplish.
Ghost of Tsushima has some dull edges, but strikes a lot of highs with its cinematic stylings.
At its core, it’s just another open-world game.
Sucker Punch's first stab at a stealth action adventure hits the mark. The island of Tsushima is a beautiful backdrop for this tale of revenge and honor and the environmental art is a visual treat. Combat and stealth are largely solid, though there are issues with the camera and hitting the right targets. The biggest stumble comes with the Japanese vocal track, which isn't synced correctly with the character's lips, a shame for a game like this. Ghost of Tsushima isn't the most innovative way to end a generation, but it is a fun one.
