Nioh 2 is an excellent game, filled with lots and varied content, which not only adds to the Souls-like genre while maintaining its personality as a franchise but also welcomes new players with its more friendly approach to its difficulty that doesn’t betray the ideals that made the genre such an eye-opener for the industry for both devs and players alike. While its PC port still isn’t perfect, it’s polished enough to be beatable from beginning to end with no game-breaking issues.
The PC release of Nioh 2 may not be perfect but it’s still well worth visiting. The locales are stunning, the combat is as great as ever and the boss fights will have you on the edge of your seat most of the time. I’ve died much more than I’d like to admit, but I’ve loved every minute of it.
Nioh 2 inhabits the same space as From Software’s critically-acclaimed Souls franchise, but it is by no means its inferior. Unlike the other “inspired by” series circulating the market, Nioh 2 has pushed past that descriptor. Team Ninja has developed a game that, like From Software’s games, has no equal. It is an experience that simply does not exist elsewhere.
