Wow. Ryuzo on Lethal Mode, one-shot me with just ONE of his fast unblockable/parryable attacks. Punishing but very exciting.

Press O and keep rolling away (different direction), avoid the combo consecutive strikes from him only confront him when there is an opening in-between (a gap in his defenses) to break his block (stagger)

Thank you. I had already defeated him.

My method is to focus on making precise Parry's (realised it deals high damage, high risk big rewards) managed to perform 2 parry's, 1 heavenly strike, dodge all the red crosses and attack only when got opening. When he is in the stance of going to unsheath, I try to keep a distance to let him not even perform that Lethal unblockable attack. Wooooo...Lethal Mode is really tough! I feel the attacks come in like a flash (faster than Sekiro) and seems like a higher precision is required to execute the parry's etc successfully.

My personal comments on Ghosts of Tsushima.
Into Act II only.
Considering that itís the last PS4 exclusive, I kinda expected more out of this title. Apologies to most here, cos Iím witnessing quite a fair bit of praise in this thread. Sadly I have to draw comparisons with Last of Us II since both games were out at this period of time.

Pros:
1. Gameplay mechanics are simple, challenging at times and luckily itís not punishingly hard (eg, Sekiro or Demon Souls).
2. There are very subtle Jap moments in this (eg, haiku) that I think was a nice touch. Despite the fact, that itís a bit jarring to see Jin recite poems or soak in hot springs less than 100m from a Mongol camp.
3. Huge open-world with tons of quests and side quests to accomplish. Most Ďvalue-gameí in my opinion.

Cons:
1. Coming from the gorgeous Last of Us II, GOT graphics is not as visually appealing. The colors and scenery might be nice, especially w the day/night translations. But itís the small details that I think Naughty Dog got it right and deservingly itís accolades. In short, I was not Ďwowí by Sucker Punchís samurai world.

2. Resource hunting. I kinda got bored searching mundane houses (which all look the same) for my supplies. Rotating the camera constantly looking at collectibles got really boring for me

3. Camera angle. There were times during combat that I could not parry well due to the strange / awkward position I was in.

4. Mundane quests. I got bored hearing the NPCs requests. Itís all rather similar. I felt event the main characters did not have a good story arc.

Summary:
To be honest, my interest in Assassins Creed died off after its 1st few iterations. Similarly Iím struggling to finish GOT as itís concept is entirely similar cept with better combat (at least most of the time).

I wouldínt really recommend this game strongly. But then again, on the hind side. GOT will prob occupy yr PS4 time whilst waiting for Cyberpunk next month.

Agree with you on some points about the camera issues and the NPC requests. Currently on Act 1. Another issue so far is the japanese voice acting doesn't sync up with the cutscene. Instead, it syncs up the english voice acting. This is a game that takes place in japanese setting. Feels very weird honestly. Will give a more thorough opinion piece once I'm done with the game

At first, I also find it odd and thought that its highly unlikely that they will miss such a mechanic also. Then I saw the link below, I got my answer.

https://gamerant.com/ghost-of-tsushima-lock-on-target/

Now, I'm used to it. I have the freedom to fight in any direction and dodge, parry and whatnots. I don't have to keep on switching/lock-on new enemies every time 1 is down. I enjoy the freedom while it's chaotic. (fights are like that, aren't they?)

E.g.
Spoiler!
quest - With no restriction, I can sprint here and there whack, whack and then throw a sticky bomb to 1 and then another kunai onto another side quickly. Then switch stance and just focus on staggering the shield man. All these without a restrictive lock-on or need to lock-on/unlock/switch.

Maybe they could have left it as an option for the players...but that doesn't emulate the atmosphere also.

Yes, the lip sync isn't there and I just realised it yesterday only - Japanese voice, English lip sync - Kinda Odd.

because the game was made by an american company, and not japanese company. their target audience was more for global english speaker, but since the game is set in japan, they just get japanese ppl to sub as well.
