Sekiro™: Shadows Die Twice

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice Review

The game looks like a typical souls-like game, but FROMSOFTWARE studio did their best and added many interesting features to the game. It should be mentioned that now you will see a highly detailed plot. In addition, the main character can talk now which will help you to understand the plot better.


Graphics in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice look fine. Trees, building, rocks are nicely detailed. Judging by the gameplay trailer, developers did their best and managed to create a beautiful world with attractive and colorful objects. The animation is different comparing to other FROMSOFTWARE games. Fights are much faster in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, so now the animation of fights and other actions (such as dodging) look faster as well.

Plot and Gameplay

The game tells us a story about ninja, whose name is Sekiro. Sekiro loses his arm in a fight, and now his mission is to wash away the dishonor and shame, by killing his enemies. The main character gets a new hand but made of iron. With its help, you will be able to use different gadgets, such as a grappling hook that will help you to get on the trees and buildings. However, you will be able to use it only in marked places. With the help of the grappling hook, it becomes easier to perform different stealth kills. You can kill your opponents quietly, by hiding on the trees or behind the walls. If you are not a fan of stealth play, you can always go in action fights and kill anyone you see. Developers added a possibility for the player to hand from the tree, hide in tall grass, and many other options which will make the stealth more interesting.

As many other FROMSOFTWARE games, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice has some hard opponents, and it will surely take some time to kill them. You will meet bosses on your way. Each boss is unique and you must find the way how to eliminate him. Despite the fact that the game is about ninjas, you will see some unusual creatures, such as a giant snake, and a big chicken that is going to attack you as soon as it sees you.

Is it worth replaying?

You will surely replay this game because each location can be passed differently. You can improvise and perform spectacular moves, which will make the game more interesting to play. It should be mentioned, that most likely you will be able to play a New Game +. It is a new game, but with all the upgraded equipment you had in the last campaign.

We surely recommend you to play Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, especially if you are a fan of the souls-like genre. The game has a lot of in common with previous FROMSOFTWARE games, but on the other hand, it is really different. There is no stamina, you can perform various moves faster than before (for example dodges, jumps, etc.). The game will be available for download on Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
