Started some Ghost of Tsushima on PS5.
I’m not entirely sure why everyone is sucking it’s dick cause it’s Horizon: Zero Dawn in Japan. But, it runs super smooth on the PS5 and the combat isn’t too bad. Bloody camera is all over the place during a fight though. I’ve only got a few hours on it and there’s been several times when the enemy has wandered off screen and I couldn’t see him swinging at me or, worse, some scenery blocks the camera. I’d give my right testicle for some kind of lock on system.
The graphics aren’t too bad though and it’s a nice place to spend some time in. I particularly enjoy the swaying trees and grass. It really makes the scene come alive even when staring off into the distance.
I like it; I’m just not into Game of The Year territory yet.
I liked it from the off, but it took a few hours for it to really click with me, and once it got into that sweet spot it had me entranced right to the finish and deep into the endgame, which is where I normally lose interest.
There's no single thing it does transcendently well, but it does EVERYTHING at a 9/10 sort of spot, and when you add it all together it's just a majestic game.
IIRC I talked about it a bit in the 'What's everyone playing' thread, and there are a few rough corners in the opening hours, which were addressed with extra gameplay options that you'll have available to you.
