Reviewers don't really like Sucker Punch. Infamous Second Son got 80 and Infamous 2 got 83. Sony probably won't be lucky enough to come out with yet another hit in such a short time.

I will go with 79.

Yeah, after Days Gone I'm kinda wary. Like Bend Studio, Sucker Punch hasn't done anything in a long while. I'd still buy it at a 79 Opencritic score though.

So yeah this generation we've now had three sony companies known for one genre and franchise branch out into new genres and new IPs (or at least new IPs for them). Guerrilla Games with Horizon after doing Killzone, Insomniac with Spider-Man after doing Ratchet & Clank, and now Sucker Punch with Ghost of Tsushima after doing inFamous. Also, Sony Bend with Days Gone, but that wasn't as much of a success. Not bad, but not great.

Man, Sony really is knocking it outta the park this generation. New IPs, great games, lots of variety. Can't wait for PS5! This looks like a hell of a swan song.

And here's the counter-argument to the above reply of mine. If Guerilla and Insomniac were able to rise to Naughty Dog levels (both were AA or AAA studios), then Sucker Punch (which also has a long history of doing AA or AAA games) should be able to as well. Bend Studio's slight failure (Days Gone is still a good game!) can be explained by the fact that they went from developing for PSP all the way to PS4.

It's amazing to see posts here saying 80/100 is just "decent" or not a great game...really?

This! 8/10 is still a great game. I've caught flak for years saying that I typically won't buy a game that's under 78/100, even though I fully acknowledge those 78/100 games are good games worth people's money. I have the excuse of owning way too many games already. I'm a multi-platform gamer, and a retro gamer to boot. So I've got 15 different game systems I can play on plus PC. But for other people, that don't own hundreds of games, and don't have more than 5-8 systems? Lol saying 8/10 isn't worth picking up is laughable!

Hmmmm. I'm torn. On its own I wanna say 92-93, but comparing it to another open world new IP by a sony company trying a new genre - Horizon Zero Dawn - I'll say it'll be just a step below so I'm going with 87.

I loved inFamous and everything about this game looks great. I love Sucker Punch but I always thought they came across as a scrapped, mid-level developer compared to bigger companies like Naughty dog, Guerrilla, and Insomniac. Then again, I never saw Insomniac as a AAA developer until Spider-Man (Which is weird becuase Ratchet and Clank are some of my all-time favourite games and Spyro holds a place in my heart. Point is, they were always A or AA based on game size and budget, a middle-tier dev team with smaller-scaled but tones of fun games).

So yeah this generation we've now had three sony companies known for one genre and franchise branch out into new genres and new IPs (or at least new IPs for them). Guerrilla Games with Horizon after doing Killzone, Insomniac with Spider-Man after doing Ratchet & Clank, and now Sucker Punch with Ghost of Tsushima after doing inFamous.

Horizon is exactly the same that came to my mind when thinking about it, Sucker Punch is going to elevate themselves like Guerrilla, this game is on a completely different game from their past ones, like Horizon was.

And this is not like Bend, SP has been doing good games constantly, this is their second game (plus a standalone DLC) this gen, Bend as you said came straight from the PSP days.

Gonna go with 88.

I think it will both review and sell about the same as Horizon Zero Dawn, both being what look to be new quality open world IPs.

I was thinking about the 89 Horizon got and I almost picked it, but I believe GoT will be more critically acclaimed that Horizon and sell considerably less.

Samurai vs Robot Dinossaurs, the appeal is completely different.

GoT is really artsy, it looks ridiculously good and the art actually blend on the gameplay, everything about this game screams beauty, not only graphically.

I'll be optmistic and predict 85.

@BraLoD put the scores of the Infamous series for people to have an idea of the average review of Sucker Punch.
Infamous 1 - 85, Infamous 2 - 83, Infamous Second Son - 80 and the standalone DLC First Light 73.

I don't want a completely different series to influence the prediction of this game to people, this is like the Killzone - Horizon transition, inFamous has nothing to do here xP

It is still the same dev =p

And even though I don't think it will cross over 85 it is the game I have been mostly excited about. How many days between review embargo and release? Because if it is another one week or more difference I'm willing to say it have a good shot of over 90.

3 days.

1 week is actually pretty rare, specially for a new IP.

It's not God of War or The Last of Us =P

Also, yeah, I've been more hyped for it than for TLoU2, I can't wait for this thing.



OP updated.

3 Days is still plenty for a new IP that haven't show much of its gameplay so far. Good, at least they are confident enough to not go for the only on same day or even a day after release.
