On Metacritic probably, sod them. It still has that 95 on OpenCritic and 96 on N4G based on 203 reviews :P 



It'll always be a 95 in my mind.

what is your favorite soundtrack of the game guys ?

one soundtrack reminds me of the movie "300", very cool !!!

Oddly enough the tracks I prefer are the ones calling back to the original soundtrack. For exemple the music that you hear when you go back for the blades of chaos.

That was one of the most epic non combat moments in gaming, it brought real tears to my eyes and made a jaded man feel something truly deep for a moment. Not many games evoke tears of joy, sadness or confused melancholy. In fact only two others I can recall and this game did it twice. That score heading down river, man, barely a word spoken and all that was needed was the imagery and that immensely powerful score.

The soundtrack is so good, absolutely love this piece https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5rvDQnCJdE

 

It's not necessarily the score but the way it was sparingly used until it is really needed. It's a fantastic score but it takes balls to fade what must have been a massive part of the budget for long periods of game time only to whip it out and truly use it when needed for a handful of scenes. Really goes to show that it's not only the score in games but the way the director implements. This is another sign that games are continuing  to eclipse TV and film in raw artistic and emotional power. 

The boat ride back home sticks out the most as well as the main boss fights.



 

I new no Sony game could reach 95 this gen and yet it made me believe in the end, dammit.
Well, best game this gen, right there with TLoU for the best non-LoD games ever.

There's always TlOU 2, Death stranding and I'm sure ghosts of tsushima could reach it but as TLOU 2 will probably have some political talk around it among smug californian journalists I don't hold much hope there. Ideally Sony would need to put out something that has an entirely family friendly look and feel and then do their magic inside those paramotors. It would take something away from Sony games to do so in my opinion, so lets just be thankful they are fantastic they way they are and Sony are killing it and try not to give a fuck what nostalgic and frankly bad gamers (journalists) manage to score Sony games, let them suck Nintendos joy cons.



 

Another 90
