Ghost Of Tsushima Iki Island Expansion Review – Sins Of The Father

Rather than being shoehorned into an already complete experience, Ghost of Tsushima‘s Iki Island expansion feels remarkably integral to Sucker Punch’s open-world action game; it might be something newly added to the game, but it feels like it could have been there all along. Its inclusion brings new depth to protagonist Jin Sakai, while providing even more of what made the vanilla game fun and compelling.

If Ghost of Tsushima was about Jin failing to live up to the expectations of his father figure, Lord Shimura, his adventure to Iki Island is about Jin’s biological father, Kasumasa Sakai, failing to live up to his son’s expectations. The vanilla game dedicated a lot of time in Jin’s character arc to his feelings and regrets about his father’s death, and with Iki Island, Sucker Punch finds ways to explore that event and their relationship in a lot more depth. Whether you’re playing the expansion after having finished Ghost of Tsushima when it launched on PS4, or you’re venturing to the island midway through a full playthrough of the game, it’s notable how much the Iki Island diversion feels like an important part of Jin’s journey.
