Hi guys! Today I will talk about the best single-player game I have ever played and that is Sekiro Shadows Die Twice. As always, the review will have four parts, firstly I will talk about the storyline, then, about the gameplay, then the visuals and finally, I will tell you my personal thoughts and give you a rating for the game from 0-10 (10 being the best).

The story of the game is very interesting and by the end, you will feel emotionally connected to the characters.
I think the world of Sekiro is very well-written and the story needs a sequel after that dramatic ending. I should mention the story has 4 different endings but only one of them is the true ending that is considered canon by the developers.
Sekiro is an amazing game, in fact, it is so good that I could just say buy it and end the review here but I have to write the review for those that want more details on why Sekiro is worth to buy.
Firstly, Sekiro has the best combat system I have ever seen in a game. It is easy to learn yet hard to master and when you master it, it is hands-down beautiful to see the fights in the game. If you see videos on YouTube where people fight enemies in Sekiro with 0 damage taken where they perfectly deflect every enemy hit, you will understand what I am talking about.
To fight you have your katana and a lot of shinobi tools and some consumables that give different buffs. Sekiro isn’t like the other FromSoftware games, you can only use your katana, there are no other weapons for you to choose from.
The game doesn’t have difficulty settings, but you can make the game more difficult by ringing the Demon Bell. Also, the game’s base difficulty stacks up till ng+7 and after the first playthrough, you can give Kuro(who is your master) his charm to make the game even more difficult.
The game is at its most difficulty in ng+7, where you also give Kuro the charm and ring the Demon Bell. There is a lot of rage on the internet about the game’s difficulty being too hard.
Let me tell you this, the game’s base difficulty is nothing special. Maybe it’s a little harder than, and I mean only a little harder than, the hardest difficulty in any other game.
Those people rage because they don’t want to put any effort into the game. When you master deflecting and get used to the game, the game’s base difficulty will be a walk in the park.
I have beaten the game 12 times the last four being with the hardest possible settings and I can truly say that without the Demon bell and without giving Kuro the charm the game becomes easy after the second playthrough.
Whoever says the game needs an easy mode is just lazy.
Sekiro has a lot of bosses and mini-bosses for you to fight and they feel different from each other and each requires a different approach when you fight them.
There are also many items for you to unlock, some are passive and others are active.
In the game, there are idols for you to rest and restore your health, much like the other FromSoftware games. They are easy to find and are placed in good positions, meaning you don’t need to travel a lot to return to where you died.
In Sekiro you also have the ability to resurrect when you die, you have one resurrection at first, but as the game progresses you can have up to three resurrections.
The game has beautiful graphics, they are not the best, but they are surely among the best graphics you will see in games nowadays.
My only problem with Sekiro is that you can’t change your appearance at all, but thanks to the mod community there are many mods that change your character’s appearance and the game’s appearance in general.
The mod community of this game is very active, and you should absolutely check out the mods for this game.
Sekiro Shadows Die Twice offers the best combat system I have ever seen in a single-player game, a real challenge for those that want to play difficult games, and an amazing story and graphics.
I think this game is a true masterpiece and I really hope that there will be a sequel to this game. If you want a game that offers a real challenge, then this is a game for you.
You don’t even need to wait for it to go to sale, this is one of those few games that are worth every penny.
General Rating: 10
