Overall, if you're a fan of Nioh 2 and desire some more Yokai slashing action, then there is definitely enough on offer here to justify picking this up. My main issue is that this DLC, much like the final DLC for the first game, is where I just finally have become burnt out on being expected to run through another full playthrough on an extremely crushing difficulty.
Maneater gets a fairly rudimentary upgrade to PS5, and although the flashy lighting and other additions are welcome, some more quality of life and performance changes wouldn't have gone astray. The inability to transfer save files may also be a bit of a pain for those who previously played through, as there isn't too much incentive to dive back in again.
Intended to complement Spider-Man: Miles Morales, this return to the game that started it all is well worth taking a gander at, even if ironically being bundled with Miles may have cast an even larger light on Spider-Man: Remastered's flaws, as the tighter story and streamlined objectives of the former really draw attention to the more grindier portions present in the later stages of the game.
Make no mistake, the Tony Hawk series is back in all of its resplendent glory. It's awesome seeing the Birdman back up on his perch and coming back to these games after a decade of unworthy entries really felt like a revelation as I was immediately reminded of how much I'd been missing the series from my life.
Although a bit light on main missions, the amount of new content on offer here makes The Tengu's Disciple a must for anyone who enjoyed the base game. The new weapon is a blast to use and the new difficulty ensures that those players who had capped out all of their gear and explored all regions fully will now have an incentive to play through not just the new content but also previous missions as well.
If you liked the tainted dreamlike aesthetic of games like Inside and the exploration and platforming of titles like Ori and the Blind Forest and Hollow Knight, but also appreciate a tightly constructed narrative then you can do far worse than giving Neversong a few hours of your time.
Obviously my experiences with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered (and you can bet that's the last time I'm typing that unwieldy title in its entirety) are affected somewhat by the fact that this was my first time playing through, but woowee boy, what a campaign it is.
