Ghost of Tsushima aims to set itself apart from other first party AAA open world titles, but does it stand out above the rest?
"Is Just Another Open World Experience" yes but it is one of the best made open world games... it sits easily around 8,5 - 9/10 ...and probably one of the best farewells to a generation of consoles ....left me more memories than 5-6 games together
Establishment journos trying so hard to tank this game so it doesn't do better than TLOU2... LOL
Man, you should take off your ideology shades sometime.
@Tiqila If you're not already aware of the way corporate media is trying to shape your mind and society as a whole through content curation and gate keeping, I'm not going to be able to help you.
Just got my platinum. Kept me roped in with those painting-esque graphics and fantastic combat mechanics til the very end. Most fun I’ve had since Bloodborne and God of War this generation!
Puts the Japanese American on the review to explain how this western studio is culturally appropriating. Gives it a 7... Another one of these reviews.
In the meantime actual Japanese reviewers in Japan are giving it perfect scores. Sounds about right from our SJW culture.
Cultural appropriation is such a bizarre idea, that it almost seems like parody. Or someone pretending to be "woke" to make the real woke people look bad.
Here is the reviewer: https://twitter.com/Justice...
“Seriously?” I know. Just like that it makes sense doesn’t it.
I wonder what Mongolians think of the game
lol, and this review is just another subjective opinion.
Now, that is just sad.
Isn't that what reviews are?
Yes, but reviewers often think their reviews are objective.
my example to counter this would be saying you have a pile of stones but one of them is polished and shiny, that's ghost of tsushima. while you may have other stones like it the other ones aren't as polished and as far as stones go it's what you'd want out of a stone. at least that's my take on it. edit: basically the game is good at what it does and you're underrating it just because. If you eat ice cream all day and say oh this is a slightly better flavor but i've been eating ice cream all day so this gets a 7 when it's obviously at least 9 out of 10 ice cream you're not being objective
***Ghost of Tsushimafeels like a tech demo–a showcase of the PlayStation 4’s graphical capabilities, especially through its hefty photo mode and the sheer amount of things you can have on the screen at the same time. However, it lacks the mechanical refinement of most modern AAA titles*** Insanity. I highly question this reviewer's objectivity in this review. It's just laden with poisonous words for the gameplay and anything non-Japanese. I've played a ton of games like this, it's no more "by the numbers" as other games nor does it lack storytelling elements ,but the author infers that there is lacking of it because outside of the story you repetitively fight enemies... like every game of its type out there. Edit: And to the author, the enemy types are dog, bear, boar, hawk, mongol swordsman, japanese swordsman (very different these two), spearman, shieldman, archer, bomber, brute, captain, bosses/dueling opponents. A bit more than you said in your review. This doesn't include that as you advance in the game the difficulty of these opponents grows with more combos and combat options available to them all. Edit 2: I don't care about the author's score, it's his words that feel wrought with bitterness of some sort. Like he went in with the intent to impugn everything but the japanese voice acting and the graphics of the game. He represents his opinion lazily and incorrectly throughout.
Wow - um did these folks play the same game that I am playing? It is a MASTERPIECE. and FYI I will not give them the click. The score says it all.
Exactly. I didn't bother clicking on it either.
o lord, someone looking for attention. on to better news please.
Haha. Nooo. I'm not falling for that. I've already all but finished it twice. I don't think Ive ever played a 50 or 60 hour open world game and then started it again straight away. This game does so many things better than any open world game I can think of for a long while. Is it completely original? No. But a game doesn't have to invent a new genre to be good. That's why it's called a genre. But it's raised the bar now. Look at this game and go and look at the assassin's Creed demo again. That game needs to be delayed. Maybe back to the drawing board. it's just not in the same league. And the workforce and budget is much bigger. AC just feels cookie cutter while GoT feels like a labour of love. Sucker Punch should be so proud.
Sony's games are rated based on a different scale that is higher than other publishers' games
Is there a new game+?
Not yet. I would like if they followed what Santa Monica did with God of War. Probably one of the better NG+ offerings out there.
Its pretty good but not great, I'm still playing through though.
A great open world experience....9/10.
And this is just another mediocre review. 4/10.
You look average. Lol
Most critics in a nutshell lol. One of the best and well executed open worlds Ive played.
You can smell the desperation for clicks.
With how much negativity this game has gotten I imagine the upcoming AC will get just as many sites criticizing how samey it is.
is NOT just another open world experience, fixed it
Just another review too. Ghost was filled with memorable moments and characters. It's a game that begs for a sequel. Jin Sakai is right up their with the best characters in the history of Sony exclusive games. Spoilers.... You know a game is good when you're a grown man and you shed a tear over a horse made up of only 0s and 1s.... ... or an old lady remembering the best day of her life (as someone who has seen first hand the effects of dementia and alzheimer's on a loved one this one really got me) ... ... or a friend sacrificing himself for you and you having to sacrifice your best friend... ...or your uncle and the choice between honor and your people. 7/10 my ass
Incoherent dumb ass.
