Review: Ghostwire Tokyo is a memorable but flawed horror-action game
Nakamura was the creative director on Ghostwire Tokyo, but left Tango Gameworks because she says the working environment was making her ill

At times it feels like the game’s incredible art direction, music and visual style deserve a game that’s better mechanically, but when it all comes together, Ghostwire Tokyo is one of the more memorable recent games in the triple-A space, if you can ignore its gameplay stumbles.

  • Impeccable visual style
  • Tokyo is realistic and memorable 
  • Engaging abilities
  • The story isn’t engaging 
  • Combat encounters lack variety 
  • Main story isn’t very long 
3 / 5
Version tested
