If you haven't picked up Ghost of Tsushima yet, you can check out our review from PlayStation lead Jennifer Locke. She writes that "Ghost of Tsushima has a solid foundation that is definitely deserving of a sequel on PS5. I think Sucker Punch has a new franchise on its hands. The studio already nailed the combat, in my opinion, now it just needs to work a little more on the open-world aspects."
Update, August 17 (8:58 p.m. ET) — No microtransactions
Sucker Punch Productions confirmed to IGN that there won't be any microtransactions. "There are no microtransactions in Ghost of Tsushima: Legends, and we have absolutely no plans to add them. All of the content is unlocked through play," a PlayStation representative stated.
Becoming the Ghost is exceptionally fun
Ghost of Tsushima is a great samurai game, but its open-world could use some work. The combat and Jin's personal journey to becoming the Ghost are the real hooks here, and Sucker Punch thankfully nails those aspects.
