You gotta hand it to Sucker Punch Productions - the Sony first-party studio went in a completely different direction after wrapping up its Sly Cooper & Infamous franchises and ended up notching another win in the process. That shocking victory came in the form of Ghost of Tsushima, an amazing ode to classic samurai films and the war-torn struggles of Japan’s feudal period. The game’s open-world looks fantastic, its battle mechanics are tuned to perfection, and the tale of revenge told throughout it hits all the right notes in order to get its hooks into players.
