Savage Battle

A game with a samurai theme, Ghost of Tsushima tries to present a combat system by combining realistic elements and flashy action.

Then for opponents with shields can be conquered using Water Stance. Opponents who use spears can then be overcome with Wind Stance. Opponents with large stature can be subdued using Moon Stance.

Various choices of fighting styles or various enemies do make Ghost of Tsushima feel alluring.
