    I would say Horizon. It's got robot dinosaurs.
    There's no beating that.

    No. Horizon was only so so for me. Iíve enjoyed all of the Ubi open worlders more than Tsushima. Watch Dogs, Far Cries, Ass Creeds, Divisions. Witcher 3 obvs. Red Dead Redemption 2. Skyrim with the new graphical upgrades if you can count that. Breath of the Wild. God of War if you squint a bit. Spider-Man probably too now I think of it. Does Control count? Tomb Raiders? Theyíre open ish. :)

    In that company Tsushima is an accomplished but unexceptional AA effort. And I say that having enjoyed it a great deal. I can like it but recognise itís not top tier.

    Opinions though, eh? :)

    Yeah, I think the combat and art style carry Ghost past its pretty generic framework.

    Oh god I forgot breath of the wild, yeah definitely that! Witcher 3, botw, rdr2, ghosts.

    I hate Unisoft open worlds games generally, well the ones I've played. I haven't played any of the latest ass creed games from hating the ones previous. I hate everything far cry since 2. Control, gow and tomb raiders don't count. Yeah Spiderman was excellent as well and would probably be in that top 5 next to ghosts.

    The divisions I guess is kinda open world and I did enjoy 2 a lot, was just a bit soulless even though the combat was good fun.

    Best mechanics and gameplay in an open world game for me. Falls into the Ubisoft shit a bit too much by the end but the gameplay puts it head and shoulders above other open world stuff for me. I'd put it miles above Horizon and it's one of my favourite games of the generation.

    Of course I'm only at the end of act one and I might think worse of it come the end. Zelda was pretty much perfect until the final maybe quarter of the game.

    Edit..the ghost combat is comfortably the best open world combat system ever made.

    Iíd bounced off Ass Creed, but got Origins on the cheap and then 120hrs disappeared. Fucking loved it. But sure, I know Ubi games arenít for everyone.

    There are some off the wall choices like Elite and Subnautica that are different kinds of open worlds too. Then thereís the other AA crew like Rage 2, Just Cause 3/4, Borderlands 3, etc. Etc.

    So yeah. Really liked this, but itís lower order for me this gen.

    Maybe half way through act 2. Except for the occasional mess up I'm a bit of a beast now. Got the mystic armour at level 3 and unlocked every parry ability so I can just walk into the middle of a Mongol stronghold now and just butcher everyone without having to move much. It's quite refreshing being so powerful in a game like this.

    Wait till the stands off take a turn :D

    But yeah game does power really well and different types of approaches too - mine was mainly like yours and the ghost armour approach with 3 insta terror kills is great for this too as the meter fills quick

    Getting the mystic armour was the first thing I did in act 2 so straight away I rode all the way to the north of that area so I got to fight several enemy types that were definitely harder than further south.

    I find the notion of NG+ strangely tempting with this one. If I had any confidence that the save game would transfer over with the (hopefully) inevitable PS5 patch I'd be excited. :/

    Onto act 3 now. I am definitely one with the force in this, the combat flow is beautiful. Pretty much just doing main missions now otherwise I will burn out.

    I'd definitely do the tales too if you haven't been.

    I've done the heavenly strike, the armour one with the six keys and the rapid strike one where it gives you the multi kill for 3 resolve.

    Any of the multipart tale missions are worth doing. Basically anything with someone's face next them.

    Oh the character sub missions. I've mostly ignored them as they are so long. Done the archer one though upto the 8th of 9 so far.

    They're definitely worth doing, some pretty decent story arcs.

    Yeah they're all pretty good. You normally get some decent armour or something from them too.

    Sometimes the individual missions in them aren't the best, but the through line of the stories are worth the effort for sure. As a rule they're usually better than the basic side missions (the icons without faces) that you can discover.

    I went back and cleared them all up *after* I'd finished the main campaign, but on reflection it would've built to a more satisfying crescendo if I'd done them alongside it.

    Lady masako quest line was my favourite. Big Norio is cool guy though and his gets a bit dark towards the end.

    They were all decent. Kenji's were maybe the weakest... but they're also the shortest so that's OK. :)

    The tales are among the best bits - mopping up the end of those before what may be the big finale

    Nah. That was one of the Mythic Quests in Act 3 I think.
