It's been too long since my last review, but that's only because I've been busy playing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Here is the link to my full review.

The short version is that it's not for everyone, but a certain kind of gamer who appreciates action that pushes the limit of video game difficulty will find plenty to love.

What did you think of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice?

I hear it's not as hard as Dark Souls and Bloodborne.

@doomnukem3d: As someone who has beaten all 3 Dark Souls, it was, in my opinion, much trickier to nail down because,unlike DAS where you can hide behind a shield for a lot of attacks, Sekiro pretty much demands that you master parrying to make any kind ofprogress.

Sekiro is so far my personal Game of the Year, no doubt. A clear 9/10. Awesome gameplay, sound, graphics. Cool story. Everything was good.

I hear it's harder than DS, and as a person who've played both I agree with Sekiro being harder than DS.

Sounds good, but I'd much rather it has a lot of rpg elements..

@gettingonwithgaminglife: It's a different beast entirely. Basically a one on one spectacle fighter with branching upgrades.

@doomnukem3d: Can't really say, I have sadly never played the 3D Ninja Gaiden games (been wanting to though).

@turtlethetaffer: Ninja Gaiden Black is the best 3d action game I've ever played imo.
