I'm not a fan of Dark Souls like games, so I haven't played Sekiro. My brother though is, and he believes that Sekiro is a masterpiece in pretty much every way. Challenging and difficult but never unfair. Extremely tight and satisfying combat, movement and controls, and fairly long. Definitely a great game for anyone who loves DS, and especially for those who think DS is a bit slow. I don't remember last time in a fair number of years seeing him be so happy to play a game.
Absolutely Sekiro IMO is a must-play. If you've played SoulsBorne games, forget about them, it's different, yet just as fun, satisfying and amazing.
The description of Sekiro your brother gave you applies to the souls games too.
He loves both, and I believe they're probably very similar to what he said. Sekiro is much faster though, he says, and he loves the fact that he doesn't have to worry about weapon and armor management and upgrades of the same. Just pure focus on the game and the gameplay which to him is tighter, more precise and just better.
i did played itm but i will stick to Nioh for now, as its unforgiving for people that has dead reflexes like i do, in soul games you can at least farm souls to upgrade your char so that you can take on a boss while in Sekiro if you want to upgrade to take on a boss you have to kill the boss so yea..
well, I sincerely hated DS II, I wanted to try Bloodborne, but it's not available on PC,
I read some brief reviews about Sekiro, and it could be more enjoyable with the stealth elements and vertical gameplay options...
Sekiro shares a few gameplay elements with DS but its WAY better
Its much more fast paced, involves a fair it of stealth based gameplay (many bosses and mini bosses can be stealthed but not all) and demands a lot of practise and instinctive gameplay from you. Its really got and not hard in an unfair way.
If you died, its literally because you didnt pick up on the strategy. Some enemies require you to attack them non stop, others more caution and some a mix of both
