Toukiden 2 works very well as a sequel with the new open world that offer us a better approximation to the missions and the demon hand that gives us more options on its combat system. Although the game is not perfect, could be a good choice for the hunting action RPG lovers.

Toukiden 2 shows that an already impressive series can be made even better by taking chances on new systems. The story stays in scope of the premise throughout the game even after accepting multiple side-quests, theres always clear knowledge of what to do next. Although the open world map by intimidating to some, the game offers easy quick traveling options to seamlessly get players from one place to another. After playing the game for well over 30 hours, I feel like I can continue playing for another 100 and with that I happily say, "Bring it on!"

Toukiden 2 is a huge step up from its predecessor, and is a smart evolution of the gameplay that Monster Hunter fans have come to know. By opting for a more story-focused experience, it manages to forego feeling like a grind, and the open-world aspect allows players to really take in their surroundings.

All around, Toukiden 2 feels like it takes a lot of what made the earlier games feel a bit flat and fixes it up. New features and open-world exploration set it further apart from the Monster Hunter franchise — not because there’s anything wrong with Monster Hunter, of course, but because it’s important for a game to feel like it’s own unique thing.

There is no need to persuade fans of the original game and other Monster Hunter-like games. The rest of you could be pleasantly suprised how good and addictive Toukiden 2 is even if the game does not impress with graphics and the controls are not the best.

As a third person monster hunter with JRPG elements, Toukiden 2 gets a lot right. It has some important limitations that you should consider before diving in, but if you enjoy the franchise or the monster-hunter genre, keeps this one in mind.

It's the console monster hunting game you've been wanting, but with a far bigger emphasis on story and exploration.

There is plenty here to entertain the casual players to the hardcore fans of monster hunting series. With a well built world and story driven characters you'll always be wanting to fight just one more monster, on your own or with a party of friends.

Toukiden 2 is a packed title that sacrifices complex depth, but in exchange continues to offer people a faster, more easy to understand hunting game for anyone who does not gel with the methodical style of Monster Hunter, while also bringing a fun single player story.

Toukiden 2 is both a solid hunting game and a vast open world, and even if it cannot match the ones from the AAA games seen recently (from Horizon to Breath of the Wild), it has more than enough juice to keep fan busy for at least a couple of weeks. If you liked the previous titles, you'll find much mor of the same here and a couple of new twists that add to the gameplay.

Though the plot opens the door to some compelling storytelling only to trip while walking in, there are so many other reasons to give Toukiden 2 a spin.

Toukiden 2 make for a fine addition to the Action/JRPG genre, bringing a lot of new ideas to the table but not without its minor frustrations.

Toukiden 2 takes a core from Kiwami and makes some subtle changes that develop the whole thing from Monster Hunter clone to something unique in the genre. The new, faster combat is a ton of fun and while cramped controls and limited presentation are there and a bother, they aren’t the end of the world and don’t frequently get in the way of the fun.

Toukiden 2 ends up offering something that's lacking in all departments.There's too much fluff between the good stuff, but it still offers a somewhat exhilarating experience in short bursts. If you're looking for a combat-heavy co-op experience on PC, it's not a bad choice at all - but if you're coming from similar games, you'll likely be left feeling generally underwhelmed.

I said when I started this Toukiden 2 review that I was new to the monster hunting genre. What Toukiden 2 provided was a great way to dive into the experience and learn about the genre. The gameplay loop is the clear driving force of the game, and like others of its type, there is an addictive nature to it. This is a great entry point for people new to the genre, but even experienced players are going to have a blast.

Toukiden 2 is another solid entry in the series and probably your best bet for a demon-hunting experience on current gen consoles.
