FromSoftware may have carved themselves a well-worn niche but it’s when it’s as good as Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, who are we to complain? Building on the Souls template, Sekiro adds increased verticality, faster combat, simplified character progression, and combat which focuses on expert parrying. FromSoftware have set a tremendously high bar for themselves but Sekiro does them proud. The world design is excellent from top to bottom, while a number of boss fights have entered the pantheon of FromSoft greats. The satisfaction to be felt from finally toppling the hard-as-nails final boss is an experience that’s difficult to beat.
