Ghost of Tsushima remains one of the best PlayStation 4 exclusives of that generation, and now we get to re-experience it all over again with the release of Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut on PS5 (also available on PS4). The big selling point is the latest Iki Island expansion, which takes a deeper dive into protagonist Jin Sakai's backstory, his biological father, and a new looming threat. However, does it all work as well as the base experience?
NOTE: This review is spoiler-free.
Ghost of Tsushima's Iki Island can be triggered after completing the base game's first act, taking Jin to a new island off the coast of Tsushima. Instead of Khotun Khan, Jin has to deal with the enigmatic leader of a group of bandits known as The Eagle, a woman with a terrifying grip on the island and its inhabitants. Through flashbacks and dealing with a powerful drug that basically powers up users, Jin discovers secrets about his past and his father's involvement in the island's downfall.
Ghost of Tsushima's Iki Island is very well-integrated into the main story...
Picturesque beaches, steep cliffsides, and lush flora dot the landscape to make Iki Island feel unique...
