Absolute Visual Masterpiece.

Predordered the game as I was really hyped about an open-world set in ancient japan.
Pros: After playing the game for a few hours, I could say one thing for sure that this game is a MUST if you're passionate about Japanese culture, the immersiveness of the island of Tshushima is breathtaking with the visuals and audio on point. The combat is heavily focused on parrying so it's recommended to hone your parry skills from the beginning. The variety of clothing offered alongside the interactivity with npc's around the island who greet you with respect makes you feel a sense of warmth like none other.
Cons: Now, all these pros do not come without a few cons and let me mention the biggest one first. The framerate. The game handles at a stable 30 fps constantly on the PS4 pro which is remarkable. However, it sometimes drops a bit on a base PS4 system in crowded areas and during action. I myself play on the base system and it could take away from a bit of the immersiveness this game wants to offer you. However, I would say it's a must buy if you plan on upgrading to the ps5 which allows for backwards compatibility on this game (confirmed) so you'd experience once again with better visuals and framerates on the ps5. That's about it, happy gaming!
