Ghost of Tsushima PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Ghost of Tsushima is based on a historical Japanese setting, and developer Sucker Punch has invested extra effort into representing the backdrop accurately. The Seattle-based team collaborated with Sony’s Japan Studio to work on a full localisation, and you can choose whether to play the title in English or Japanese. In addition, the firm worked alongside the Kurosawa estate to produce a black-and-white filter inspired by the legendary director’s films.

All of that effort clearly appealed to Japanese gaming bible Famitsu, as it’s been awarded a perfect score by the magazine. This makes it the third Western game ever to receive a 40/40 from the publication, following The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Grand Theft Auto V. It’s also the second Sony funded title in a row to receive the accolade, after Death Stranding scooped the score late last year. Of course, the legitimacy of the mag’s scoring remains very much under question.

Fortunately, we also loved the samurai open worlder in our Ghost of Tsushima review, and so did other websites it seems.
