The city in GHOSTWIRE: TOKYO feels very real with care obvious in its design

GHOSTWIRE TOKYO is a spooky adventure that leaves you wanting both more & less

A fun premise with some truly excellent art design but that is suited best for short playthroughs over a long time

If you want to feel the nostalgia of visiting Tokyo, there are few other games that capture the feel of that city like GHOSTWIRE TOKYO, but it's a city devoid of life emptied of the thrum of humanity.

This action adventure game set in a world of spirits and magic, is an ambitious departure for Tango Gameworks (THE EVIL WITHIN) but while you can explore much of spooky Shibuya there isn't much motivation to do so, as you find yourself repeating similar tasks over and over.

Edmond Tran, Managing Editor of Gameshub joins Mainstream to share thoughts on a game that does a lot of things right, but feels conflicted in it's design. You can read Ed's review of GHOSTWIRE TOKYO here
