Ghost of Tsushima Review
Posted: 13 months ago, last updated 9 days ago.
It has a large open world that can be explored by foot or horseback. It embraces the feeling of space and getting lost, as there are no navigation waypoints apart from guiding gusts of wind. Combat is detailed, with brutal swordplay and archery. You choose between strategies of "noble" face-to-face attacks or "foul-play" stealth kills.
It's a world of beautiful scenery, contrasted with very violent and bloody action. The story is emotional and reflects the world in the protagonist's troubled moral conflicts about war, mercy and revenge.
The game has an extensive Photo Mode where you can get creative with lots of options for framing shots.
Players: This is a single player game. You can play with up to 4 players online. A free co-operative multiplayer mode, titled Legends and inspired by Japanese folk tales and mythology,
is set to be released in late 2020. It will be a free download for owners of the game, but will require a PlayStation Plus subscription.
