That being said, even I can say this is a must play for people that want a big game with some challenging combat and all the bells and whistles that come with the genre, and this PC version runs and looks just as good as one would expect.

An enjoyable game, with an interesting premise which is bogged down and held back by an underwhelming PC port. The gameplay does feel great, so if the technical faults are ironed out, Nioh 2: Complete Edition is certainly a title to keep an eye out for.

Nioh 2 Complete Edition is not a flawless PC port and is not technically stable, but still delivers for those who never had the chance to try it on PS4.

Nioh 2's Complete Edition is an absolutely massive RPG with a dynamic combat system. Team Ninja created one of the greatest games in the genre in the last couple of years that polishes the gameplay systems to a mirror sheen.

Overall, Nioh 2: The Complete Edition for the PC was an amazing port from the Sony PlayStation 4 once you get the settings right. At this current point, I’ve played through the main campaign coming in just under fifty hours but as of yet I cannot comment on the three DLCs of The Tengu's Disciple, Darkness in the Capital, and The First Samurai. So because of this, I’ll be back shortly with another article covering the other three additions as they were originally extras to the main title and have their own sets of modifications and obviously twists and turns.

Nioh 2 - The Complete Edition is the definitive version of one of the best games of the generation. Complex, difficult and rewarding, here is a title that has content and the potential to entertain players for days, weeks and even months on end. The PC version is extremely welcome, as, above all, it means that more people will be able to enjoy this masterpiece. The adventure may at times become too complex, but the quality of all the elements is undeniable. It is not always that we see a franchise respect its inspirations and deliver a product that exceeds expectations. Therefore, if you are interested in the genre and are aware of the difficulty involved, it is worth venturing into this fascinating universe.

Nioh 2: Complete Edition gives the same basic sensations of the previous chapter, but expands its content greatly making the gamer’s new objective not to ends the story, but more the improving of his digital alter ego with mechanics taken from the games with online component or MMO. As a fan of the genre and noting the vast array of options available for building the character, I feel the lack of a PVP component, even restricted to arenas or various modes, but which would give that final touch of fun to a title that offers hundreds of hours of content. The lack of a more intricate level design in favor of a mission progressions system continues to be a flaw, as well as in the first chapter, but in the same way it allows for longer content in the plot and in the single-player progression. For those who have already played the title until the last DLC a few months ago, this Complete Edition doesn’t offer substantial news, but for all new players on PC hungry for high difficulty and Japanese action it is a real godsend. On the technical side there are improvements compared to the basic version, but not those improvements as clear as could be expected.

Nioh 2 doesn't dramatically alter what came before, but wisely updates the first game to create a stunning sequel and absolute must-play for fans.

Nioh 2: Complete Edition carves out its own identity, standing tall as an evolution of the Souls formula instead of a derivative.

Nioh 2 is an excellent game on PC and if you were a fan of the first one, this is a must-buy. If you haven’t played the original, I hope the review gave you a sense of what the game is like. Are myriad of complexities in action games something that gets you excited or do they sound like needless distractions? I personally lean more to the minimalist side, but when a game pulls off its mechanics as well as Nioh 2, I don’t mind diving in once in head-first.
