Sekiro is the fabulous culmination of From Software’s modus operandi, honed relentlessly since 2009. While it plays like its predecessors, it also feels different and fresh.

  • Smart posture-based combat system
  • Grappling adds a new dimension
  • Great skills and prosthetics trees
  • More coherent than expected story
  • As ever, some will find it too hard
5 / 5
