Truly an amazing experience.

Well, the first thing that will draw your attention is the art direction. It's crazy how much the wind impacts how the game looks. The world seems alive and unique since you feel like a samurai. More than that, the mechanics encourage you to explore naturally. You wanna find your mission or health places? just follow the wind. That way, HUD is almost unnecessary for most of the game. The use of colors and cinematography is top tier either. I can't remember another game that drove me so many times to just appreciate the scenario and shoot a photo of it. Also, the photography mode here is almost perfect. So many choices you can do, with a pretty volatile engine. Weather is a good example. It changes the game so much that it looks like another map sometimes.

The graphic is not the only satisfying thing. Gameplay-wise, this game shines. Combat flows amazingly most of the time and the techniques made it a lot deeper than it would be without it. Boss fights are good, especially the scenario and context involving them. Its difficulty is relative, but I can't say it will demand knowledge and caution.

And about the story? It's ok, to be honest. The dialogs are kinda unnatural sometimes, and I believe that's bad considering the deep discussion that the game brings. The character development could be better. It's not bad, but abrupt. Happily, even with those flaws, I believe the discussion about honor and family - and overall the way of living - is beautifully set. I couldn't hold my tears at the very end, and both choices are so deep that it makes the journey worth your time.

Negative points? Fps drops and Stealph missions. Since the game is handled beautifully by and 2013 console, I will disregard it. But the stealth, man... those sections are bad since the game ends if you are caught. Good stealth games are volatile and the is not sometimes.

Anyway, I totally recommend it.

«That ending!»
I loved this game, story was good, characters were good, I platinumed this game as I didn't want to stop playing after I completed the story. Both side and main quests were very interesting. Don't feel like it's a contender for game of the year (which was a choice at the time), but great! Will try Legends mode in the near future for sure.

Though he combat is no nearly as nuanced or impressive as the swordplay in Sekiro, Ghost turns out to be a challenging and enjoyable game with many quests and collectibles.
Some of the best character driven story telling in gaming.
This game had great combat mechanics. the world looks very colorful. the story was a bit generic but fine. the collectibles and side missions were all so good and engaging. I had a great time going for platinum in this game .

It's awesome to see how sucker punch went from infamous to ghost of tsushima, doing such amazing work. When I started ghost of tsushima, it felt pretty different to me, but as I progressed the whole experience was becoming even better. 

The map is huge and has a lot of things, which the exploration reminded me how I felt on breath of the wild, which step there's something new to do. The storyline is also great, the sidequests are amazing, 100% worth doing them. But at least for me, the combat was the best thing in this game. It felt cinematic without being limited, there's a lot of mechanics to explore and many ways to improve your character power. 

I can't recommend more, this game will be for sure my first platinum and I'm really excited to see the next sucker punch titles, exploring more this world of open world games.
