I'm feeling an 86.

Around the Network

89 for me. Which would be a big improvement from their last game (Infamous: Second Son scored an 80).

Ending the PS4 lifecycle with another amazing exclusive!

I'll say 92.

I'm hoping for a pleasant surprise.

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

Guess I'll remember this just to see if they sing a different tone when it comes to another game from another company.

OT I'm going with 85 seems like a good score and reasonable expectation.

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.

Azzanation: "PS5 wouldn't sold out at launch without scalpers."

81 game looks OK, but nothing special.

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.

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!
