I can't really say anything about the setting of this game; I've heard mixed things on how accurate things are, but I simply don't know enough/pretty much anything about Japan's history and culture to say. But I can say that I love how this game plays. Starting out, I was playing defensively, focusing on parrying and dodging. About halfway through, I instead switched to be aggressive, attacking my opponents first or interrupting their advances. While I prefer the latter approach, the fact that both of them, along with other approaches, are fun and intuitive playstyles tells me that the combat here is very well made.
What's not quite so well made are the collectibles. I feel like they tried to make things varied, but most of the collectibles are either annoyingly time consuming with not enough reward to be worth it (my completionist ass went for it all, though), or are boring. I enjoyed traversing obstacle courses for the Shinto Shrines, the bamboo strikes were brief but satisfying challenges, and the onsets were good ways to break the pace while providing insight into Jin's mind and giving the most consistently fruitful reward of the collectibles. All the others, though? Not very fun, and I only really did them to see funny number go up.
This is one of the most beautiful games I've ever played. It's realistic without sacrificing color and the natural beauty of the setting. I found myself feasting my eyes enough that I would often just sprint to my destinations instead of riding horseback, just to see the world for longer. Music didn't really stick out to me, but it did the job; I enjoyed the more tranquil music that would play in moments of peace.
Characters are a mixed bag. I love Lady Masako, Yuna, and Jin himself, but many of the others are negligible or even bad. Not helping matters is the story is rather basic, only getting dynamic near the end, so the focus really is on the characters.
Overall, when it comes to the general combat and gameplay, This is pretty much a straight 5/5 for me, but it's bogged down by the extracurriculars and middling characters and story. Really hope to see more of Ghost of Tsushima. Um, in the form of video games. This really doesn't need to be a movie.
Note: I have not played the Iki Island story expansion nor the Legends multiplayer. I intend to play the former and give a review all its own, but the latter I'm not sure I'll play at all.

El mejor juego de Ubisoft que ha hecho Sony. Y si alguien quisiera experimentar cómo habría sido el Assassin's Creed Japón en la era de Assassin's Creed II y no en la de Assassin's Creed Odyssey, la respuesta sería también este juego.
Hice un parón de meses porque estaba aburridillo y a la vuelta ni me lo he pensado: rusheo de las principales hasta llegar al final. Y así me quedo con mejor cuerpo al terminarlo que forzándome a perseguir secundarias. Secundarias que no están mal eh... pero es que hay muchos lugares comunes aquí que no me apetece reiterar por reiterar. Me hago un puñadito de cada una para disfrutarlas en buena dosis y a otra cosa. Nunca fui muy completista.
Así que me he quedado con buen cuerpo. Valoro que me dejen hacer eso porque mientras dura lo que tú tengas ganas de que dure, GoT es un juego muy gustoso. El game feel es de 10. Personaje responsivo, buenas animaciones y efectos de los golpes. Todo se hace rápido y bien. El combate tiene su miga y es muy chulo de ver en movimiento, y la estructura te da todo lo que quieres que te de un juego de este estilo y lo que no también.
Creo que la fórmula del Triple A Prestige de Sony se está encallando un poco aquí. Y tras Horizon 2, Si Spider-Man 2 es como el primero pero con más gráficos y combinando a Miles y Peter me dará un poco de bajona. Tsushima es un juego que en realidad está bastante bien, pero me cuesta un poco recomendarlo sin poner mil asteriscos antes y avisar que este juego lo has jugado ya antes en la generación de PS3, cuando estos juegos eran la reostia y no un residuo de tendencias de diseño ya un poco obsoletillas.
Por otra parte. Está bien que este juego ya lo jugase en PS3. Tengo que recordarme a mí mismo que los videojuegos, como juegos que son, molan en gran medida porque conocemos sus reglas y queremos participar en ellas. Queremos activar esos mecanismos y ver cómo se ponen en movimiento. Queremos desafíos y sorpresas pero también placentera familiaridad. Meses más tarde yo he vuelto a GoT porque es justo lo que quería. Un juego caro, grande y gustoso que no me pide demasiado y que a cambio me quiere dar mucho. Así que sí. Muy bien en realidad.

Excellent Samurai action and story. Felt like a Red Dead meets Assassin’s Creed and managed to not overstay its welcome. Maybe a bit bloated with side quests but definitely not as egregious as most. Highly recommend

A pretty incredible experience. I found combat a bit of a chore before starting to unlock stances, but once that was done there was more variety and the challenge felt balanced.
Otherwise outstanding. I played the Japanese version, and the cast bring the characters and their stories to life in a way that draws you in (I was especially invested in Yuna's story). It's so beautiful that early in the game I just enjoyed riding around the map between objectives to look at the world.
I also loved the structure. The brief missions growing into the larger tales works for the storytelling, but it also means that you can dip into the game for 45 minutes or an hour and leave feeling like you've made plenty of headway. Just a supremely enjoyable playthrough.

Easily the best Assassin’s Creed game.
