    From a longtime Fromsoft Games Fan

    I have completed every game made recently by Fromsoft so I enjoy difficulty if it’s fair. This game deserves the 1 I am giving because they have finally made a disgustingly difficult experience devoid of fun in any way.... Read Full Review

    GAME OF THE YEAR or NOT?

    I tried playing this game just to play the "GAME OF THE YEAR"... Thank GOD I didn't buy it...It is just a better version of Dark Souls with a story in the background and, I have to admit, beautiful cutscenes...But when i... Read Full Review

    A serious test of your concentration, and reflexes.

    The Good - the fights can be frustrating but after you beat it, it feels satisfying. When I finally beat the game, it felt like a long journey finally complete.- have to be careful when to heal. Keeps the tension up even... Read Full Review

    Scream out loud difficult!

    Ok so the other reviews are right, it is visually and technically stunning. However, as much I love a challenge, it is soooo difficult! The main pain comes from having to kill all the "little" guys that are in a given ar... Read Full Review

    Difficult for the unknown player, easy for the known player

    For the reason which I play this game is the difficulty to kill bosses that I was heard. I have spent 2 days to experience this game. I did not have any experience with Soulsborne games (Dark Soul, Bloodborne) so in the ... Read Full Review

    Over the top difficult

    So difficult that it's not fun. I've played all the From Software games including the souls games and Bloodborne. I loved them. In Sekiro after you beat a boss after 40 try's, you go around the corner and there's anot... Read Full Review

    Always dying - is not fun!

    This game is great if you like an overwhelming challenge, and if you like to play one level over and over again like 30 times. Just to learn the combat tactics of one boss, you need to fight and die like 20 times before ... Read Full Review

    Decidedly not for everyone, but absolutely fantastic

    To say that Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is difficult is an almost comically bad understatement. At this point, From Software have more or less cornered the market on boundary pushing action RPG titles that put players in ... Read Full Review

    The Shinobi Way

    When Sekiro was first announced, I wasn't interested in the game as I had just finished Bloodborne and I thought I'd had my fill of difficult games for some time. The months passed and I watched some gameplay, Sekiro loo... Read Full Review

    Big Letdown

    This game is fun to look at, and that's about it. For a FromSoftware game, it's trash. The story is weak, the combat is limited to useless combos, and the gameplay is beyond frustrating. Yeah, it's hard, and to a point t... Read Full Review

    Just awful

    Looks to me like this game is for people with super human reflexes and a ton of patience at that, cause you better be really good at it if you want to enjoy this experience. I consider myself an average sort of player wh... Read Full Review
