Review: Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut stands toe-to-toe with the PS5’s best

The PS5 version delivers the definitive experience, while Iki Island adds new layers to Jin’s story – even if it’s a bit short

Jason Connell (Art director), Shigeru Umebayashi (Composer)

Iki Island is a visual treat whose story adds layers to Jin’s character that feel so essential, it makes us wonder how they were ever cut from the original game. Completing every objective on the island will take some time, but if you’re only interested in the main story, your time on Iki may be briefer than expected.

  • The incredible visuals have never looked better.
  • Iki island enhances the narrative of the original game.
  • Engaging combat that remains challenging.
  • Japanese lip sync adds to the authenticity
  • Repetitive open world design
  • Iki island’s comparatively short runtime.
4 / 5
