      still believe there's something off with the game. It feels unpolished, incomplete. More like a big corridor which sports hard af bosses that sponge your attacks and hit back like crazy. The fact you need to not die too much and defeat heroic version of said bosses to advance through game and get the chance to see the real ending is a pain in the ass. Death caracter and voice actor is amazing, Sorun on the other hand is sported like a soulles puppet, until you hi the ending and start talk. Also wtf, 2022 and no inbuilt support for dualshock 4? Really? The game was portraited as a ripoff version of shadow of colossus, then became a rpg/action game, then it got turned into a metroidvania, as if developers were running out of ideas. It's not a bad game by any means, still recommend for those who love challenges.

      • Actually feeling proud and happy for helping our community by helping to complete the achievement guide! Finally I could retribute the help I had with the other guides in my 100% completion journeys (DS/DS2/DS3/Sekiro)!!! Thank you all!!!

          However...there's some weird issue where entering a new zone crashes my game.
          It's too common :[
