  • Game of the Year #6 - Sifu

    Don't think, feel

    We were pretty much sold on Sifu as soon as it was revealed. A gritty but stylised martial arts revenge movie in video game form? Of course we'll give it a go. And we did indeed give it a go — over and over and over again. What we're saying is that Sifu is a difficult game, but don't let that put you off! Persevere with this...

  • News Sifu Title Update 3 Out Now, Adds Replay Editor, Gameplay Modifiers, Cheats, More

    Direct hit

    The third big title update for Sifu is out now on PS5 and PS4. The so-called 'Fall Update' adds a bunch of stuff, including new costumes, additional gameplay modifiers, and even some cheats. 'Vampire' mode decreases your age when you defeat a foe, 'Touch of Death' makes enemies die with a single blow, and 'Free Throw' lets you throw your...







  • Poll What Review Score Would You Give Sifu?

    All in the mind

    Brutal kung fu action title Sifu has been out for a good chunk of time now — and you know what that means!

  • News Jaw-Dropping Sifu Speedrun Clocks in at 22 Minutes with Zero Deaths

    This is kung fu

    Sifu has been out for over a week now, and for hardcore speedrunners, that's more than enough time to learn the game inside-out. Enter 옹발이 ONGBAL, a YouTube creator who's best known for being an absolute master of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. No stranger to things like perfect parry timings and creative strategies that take...

  • News Sifu Trophy Data Shows Second Level Is Destroying Most Players

    Just don't die

    The current Trophy data for Sifu on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 tells quite an interesting story. Obviously the game's only been out for the best part of a week, but it's already abundantly clear that most players are having a hard time. See? We weren't lying when we said it was really bloody tough in our Sifu PS5 review! Okay,...

  • Poll Did You Buy Sifu on PS5, PS4?

    Master yourself

    Sifu has high kicked its way onto PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, and as we stressed in our Sifu PS5 review, it is not a game for everyone. It can be a brutally unforgiving brawler, but if you're up for the challenge (and actually have the time to master it!), then Sifu is superb. But as always, we want to know whether you've...

  • News Sifu Dev Confirms Free Content Updates Coming Soon

    The cycle continues

  • News Sifu Is Already Being Beaten in 40 Minutes without Dying

    Kung fu master

    Sifu seems like it'll be a speedrunner's dream, and already we have world record attempts hitting the 40-minute mark on its official release date. And that's without dying once. YouTuber Dan Allen Gaming has posted his very own speedrun attempt, which came together across a few sittings. Therefore, it's not an official speedrun done...

  • Guide Sifu Guide: How to Beat Sifu - Essential Tips for This Brutal Action Game

    Help, hints, and tips for Sifu

    Sifu can be an extremely difficult game, particularly in the beginning. It poses a steep learning curve from the start, and we're willing to be that just about everyone who plays it will hit a brick wall when they get to the second boss — or thereabouts. Luckily for you, we've poured hours into Sifu and we've got...

  • News Sifu Pre-Order Early Access Issues Fixed on PS5, PS4

    Half a day later

    Sifu is out next week for PlayStation 5 and PS4 through the PS Store, but if you'd rather wait for a physical version to display on your shelf, then you're in luck. Similar to what happened with Kena: Bridge of Spirits, the next game out of developer SloClap will be available as a boxed copy a few months after the...



  • News Sifu Hands-On Previews Tell of a Promising Kung-Fu Beat-'Em-Up
