A Very Honorable Title

User Rating: 7 | Ghost of Tsushima PS4

I wish there was a happy medium when it comes to this site's rating system, because then I might raise this to a 7.5. Honestly, this is one of the most beautiful games I have ever played; the open world is GORGEOUS. The combat is fun, and really makes you feel like a samurai; Jin's journey is well-written. I loved killing enemies in various ways, but it eventually gets a bit repetitive and I kept triggering the camera or getting backed into a corner when the game would glitch during combat (this can't have been just me!). The dialogue and mouth movements don't sync up well, though, and the character interactions come off as stiff and awkward. Which is a shame, because the story has some powerful moments, especially near the end, but as a result it didn't resonate as well with me. Still, a worthy sendoff for the PS4, and a good experience (insert Khan pun here).
