Well, the wait is finally over! Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice is now available to everyone to buy and suffer at their leisure! I decided to pick up my copy on Steam and I’ve put in about 10 hours into the game thus far. I know it may not be much, but I still wanted to share my thoughts and opinion on Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice.
Let me just say that this game really punishes you for making dumbass mistakes and forces you to instead stop and learn. Every enemy boss that I have encountered has brutally kicked my ass for trying to mash the attack button in hopes to deal some damage. You really have to play and act like a samurai, that is to be slow and steady, anticipate your opponent’s next attack and counter-attack precisely. Luck will not safe you here. Only skills!
I’ve played previous From Software games, but none of them got me hooked like Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice. I don’t know why but, I was never really fond of how Dark Souls or Bloodborne told their stories. Sekiro has a story that for me is easy to follow and engaging as well. Like, it’s a mixture of both styles of story-telling. There’s the surface level story that anyone will experience as you journey on to save your Divine Heir, and there’s the Dark Souls style of story in which only those who searches every nook and cranny of a map.
Combat is smooth and rewarding, but the best feature about this game is the mobility. That is what separates Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice from the likes of Dark Souls and Bloodborne. Pulling of a chain grappling hook is so much fun and when you fly off a branch and air assassin an enemy, man that shit is fun as hell.
When it comes to how it performs on PC, for the most part it runs well, with 60FPS in a main part on PC of course. I heard that this games does not run 60FPS on the consoles so there’s that.
There is just one downfall, the game doesn’t support widescreen from what I can tell. Which is a major bummer in my opinion. Anyways, I’ll be reviewing the game soon, but if you asked me if this game was worth picking up, I’d say yes!
