Ghost of Tsushima

Recommended Posts

Things I liked:

- The overall setting/world/details. This includes the aesthetic of the game as well. I think it's totally on-point. Brilliant! 👍🏽

- The scale of the world (from whatever was shown). Seems pretty big.

- Japanese VO from Day 1 is amazing! 👍🏽

- Samurai Filter will be certainly awesome.

 

Things I didn't like:

- The gameplay is very very reminiscent of AC. Like, even down to the way Jin moved around, the way the combat looked and even the platforming sections (on the boat) were very AC. I can live with that, but it is a little disappointing.

- Heck, even the whole structure of the "burn the boat" mission was very AC-like. I understand that it was a tiny side-quest, but still. 😞 Again, disappointing, but can be lived with.

- The whole "no way-point" thing that was claimed earlier is an utter fail, since we can summon the wind at any time. 🤦🏽‍♂️ Should've kept it as limited-use in a way, so that people actually use it sparingly and truly "explore" the world.

 

The livestream was playing at a horrible bitrate, I think. The video was so pixelated at various points. I started to think, downgrade incoming. Will watch the proper video again to see the difference.

 

Overall, my hype has certainly diminished. Only the story (and maybe some other things they have not shown yet) might be able to save the game, for me. Might buy it after release, on some sale, I guess.

Looks good if not great. Since it will the be the last Ps4 exclusive game 🥺 (as far as I know) will most probably end up buying it.   But all those horse riding and environment detailing wise (even in Ac Origins/odyssey) didn’t  feel mind blowing at all because of the fact I have played rdr2  three times.

Why are people surprised that it plays like AC? I thought it was obvious right from the beginning that this was going to be Sony's Assassin's Creed.

Anyway, loved what I saw and will be getting it day one! Can't wait to get lost in that lush and beautiful world :wub:

Also, that photo mode looks so good. I can see myself spamming the sh*t out of the photo mode button.

Update: Watched the high-res video. No doubts about the visuals anymore. Looks simply stunning. So, so beautiful. 😍

Oil pastel painting feel of the graphics makes the environment look beautiful.
Exploring would be fun if the landmarks are well designed and locations have some sense of discovery and adventure with a mix of platforming elements.
 

However, lack of enemy variety and combat skills could be a problem due to game's realistic setting, unless Sucker Punch is hiding some good combat stuff.
At least, they should have shown a better story related mission with some feels rather than a radiant quest about going to a random camp and killing generic enemies with dumb AI (could be difficulty related).

The game is going to look glorious in HDR. But I wonder what the checkerboard resolution is going to be. The gameplay video shows a bit of shimmering in motion and my guess is that it would be 1440p.

 

And one gameplay element that's a relief is not having to stop to pick up wood and collectibles. It got super annoying in Horizon.

Looks absolutely gorgeous. The aresthetic, the atmosphere, art, the sounds, the animations. Just -chefs kiss-. The visual and sound teams have knocked it out of the park. 

 

I agree about the stealth section gameplay. Felt like its lacking there. Copied over AC mechanics.

It's like Assassin's creed Japan with RDR2 quality graphics. Probably the least original game from Sony to get AAA treatment.

Animations are certainly not RDR2 quality.

Well this looks like SP had run out of ideas. Almost nothing in the video got me excited, I have already done most of these things in other games. Horse riding amidst beautiful scenery.. yeah I’ve had my fill of that in recent games, press square to assassinate a highlighted target  by jumping from the roof and then a follow up kill... very original. I know the combat will be refined and awesome since its suckerpunch. The only enticing thing about this game is the japanese setting.

Lets hope it goes uphill from here.

But I feel SP couldve done so much better. 
 

edit : Also calling on the wind every 10 seconds is going to get old really fast

This has got mediocrity written all over it. Reminds me a lot of that third person Victoria era werewolf shooter from early this gen.

This statement has got me really scared for this game and suckerpunch studio :rofl:

 

what is ready at dawn doing nowadays anyway?

Things i liked

 

World - Atmospheric, mysterious and Empty

Graphics - This is why i bought a 4K TV for. Looks absolutely mindboggling. Cant wait to see in action

Music - Perfectly done according to the setting

Waypoints - Wind guiding you looks interesting but lets see how it works in the long run. Birds n fox guiding you to Special locales n trees is very well done

Ghost - Like mordor kind off i think, as your reputation goes foes fear you, though needs to be seen the actual impact of this. One soldier in the demo feared jin so much that it was an easy kill.

Photo mode and Samurai Cinema - Love the windy effect in photo mode and 2nd playthrough on Cinema mode definately 

 

Things unsure of

Combat - Stealth looks good especially that fire cracker item but whole game you cant play like this.

They combat looked pretty basic. There were stances like Stone n water but nothing was shown about that. Combat looked slow as well.They need to make a video specifically to explain Combat. SP's strong point is Combat though so will be surprised if it doesnt work.

 

AI - looked like lowest setting but for reveal its fine. 

 

If this has a good story and slightly more challenge in combat, not hard like Sekiro but not easy like shown today as well mybe somewhere in the middle then it would do wonders for the game and this could be the next big thing for playstation.
