I wasn't that confident before, but the more I've seen the more I've liked. The State of Play for it in particular looked great.

I'm gonna go with 90.

Around the Network

Sucker Punch have never had a game average over 88 and I don't really see that changing.

I'll go 87.

It's incredibly pretty but it's not really doing anything different or groundbreaking.

81 game looks OK, but nothing special.

^lol see above.

But as I said 8/10 isn't special. Special would be 90+

Add me if you want but let me know youre from this website

I'll go with an 85

I really hope it can qualify as a spiritual successor to Tenchu. Some of the gameplay previews I've seen have me hopeful. I'll go with 92 which I know is wishful thinking but I don't care.

Signature goes here!

88 in meta but it Will BE 95 in my opinion, waiting for years for. A samurai game like this

I honestly think it can be a 90+ rated game.
The detail and polish looks higher than typical 80's rated games to me.

We've seen gameplay, and it looks pretty damn good, so I dont expect that to get in the way.
I expect it to review well, atleasat in the high 80's if not above 90's.

Any actual prediction, tho?

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!
