8/10
Phil Hornshaw (GameSpot)

The new chapter of Ghost of Tsushima adds to Jin’s backstory in a way that makes it feel essential, while adding even more of the best stuff from the vanilla game.

August 19, 2021 |

I was happily surprised by the breadth, depth, and challenge of the Iki Island expansion. For new players, it will extend an already lengthy adventure into something more. Meanwhile, returning players should be thrilled at how well this experience dovetails out of an already stellar game. Iki Island is what I want out of single-player game expansions. And it’s further proof (as if we needed any more at this point) that Sucker Punch has a standout new property to continue building on.

Iki Island doesn’t do much beyond just offering more Ghost of Tsushima, but the new content is extremely worthwhile, thanks to a story that dives deeper into Jin’s past, a few new combat wrinkles, and plenty of secrets to discover.
