Critic Reviews for Sifu
Sifu will test your patience, but learning how to coolly dismantle a room full of goons with virtual kung fu is worth the pain.
Sifu's brutal learning curve and unique structure that requires you to beat it in just one lifetime are significant barriers to overcome, but on the other side is truly one of the best modern action games around.
An elegant martial arts meditation on temporality and self-possession, set in a loving but touristy idea of China.
As a straight action game the core combat is elegant and original but the roguelite structure makes the already mountainous difficulty just too much to bear.
Sifu is a gorgeous, original and intelligent brawler whose self-confidence is leveraged by its masterful ageing mechanic and super tight combat.
Mastering Sifu's combat system takes a high degree of dedication and practice, but like a true martial artist, you must push through the practice pains before you reap any rewards.
Sifu's unique aging mechanic and top-tier combat make the journey from a headstrong student to a wise kung fu master utterly thrilling.
