Surprisingly, it seems that I spent more than 24 hours quietly sobbing into sequential sake glasses while exploring the world of Ghostwire: Tokyo. My tears, however, are not strictly of sadness, but also of joy. Because this game has an incredible capacity. He is able to pull me out of my current hellish existence – surrounded by loved ones and craft breweries here in Sydney – and catapult me ​​into the happiest place on earth – Japan.

Ghostwire: Tokyo has its flaws, but an inaccurate depiction of a modern Japanese metropolis isn’t one of them, so I spent much of my time with the game looking for excuses to go to new areas on the map. I cleared torii gates and saved groups of spirits. So many tufts! I’ve worked my way into a small fortune in Meika, tracked down disguised tanukis, and caught – well, wandered after – yokai. I’ve even patted more Shiba Inus than it really makes sense, sneak killed more schoolgirls than can be healthy, and done a bunch of side quests pretty damn boring. Eventually, however, my Tokyo wanderlust caught up with gameplay reality and a reckoning was done. The short version is that I LOVE the verisimilitude of this setting, but very few things really caught my attention. So, reluctantly, I continued with the main story and said goodbye to the realm of dreams and madness. It was a sweet 24 hour love story, and I hope to see you soon – for real – Tokyo, my sweet prince.

I needed a quick 15 hours to complete Ghostwire: Tokyo. During this time, I managed to complete the story, check off 15 side quests, and fully reveal the map by clearing every torii gate in Shibuya. As you can imagine, I still have a lot to do in the streets of Tokyo; there are still dozens of unsolved side quests, a whole bunch of tanuki and yokai to find, and literally hundreds of spirits to absorb into paper dolls and transfer into phones.

Am I going to do all this? Probably not. Much like Cam, I love the city that developer Tango Gameworks has created, but have little fondness for the activities that litter its authentic streets. I’m not really into collectible hunts, but that’s unfortunately what makes up a substantial part of this game beyond the main story. I feel like, for my personal tastes, 15 Hours gave me exactly what I needed from Ghostwire: Tokyo; a digital weekend trip to amazingly realized Shibuya, haunted by some of the most stylish ghosts I’ve ever seen.

When I ran the credits on Ghostwire Tokyo, my playtime was 16 hours, although it could have been much sooner if I hadn’t decided to stop my progress and go back to side quests once the game presented the point of no return. I consider myself susceptible could have summed up the story in about 13 hours.

That being said, I felt like I had my fill of side quests and activities. I hadn’t cleared the map by any means, but I managed to clear all the Torii gates and pray to a good number of Jizo statues during my playthrough.

I am an avid trophy hunter though, so I couldn’t resist the urge to dive back in. I’m now 24 hours away, well on my way to ringing that precious platinum, which I think is only hours away, but my god is there any shit minds to collect in this game!

I started Ghostwire: Tokyo the same way I start all open world games: I almost refuse to progress through the main story when there are side activities to do. Of course, this mentality only lasts for about the first half of the game before I decide to focus on the story until I finish the game. As the credits roll, my game timer indicated that I was a little past 6 p.m.

Truth be told, Ghostwire: Tokyo feels pretty short when it comes to open-world games. If you weren’t interested in any of the side activities, I guess you could probably complete the main story in 13-14 hours, however, that’s mostly a guess. And now that I’m done, I imagine I have about 5-6 hours until it’s completely done. It’s hard to say, the side quests are quick, but I have no idea how hard it is to find some of these collectibles. And as Dale mentioned earlier, there are A LOT of spirits to collect. Like, SO!
