Critic Reviews for Nioh: Defiant Honor
It's fascinating how Team Ninja is mostly catering to the hardcore crowd with this string of add-ons up through Nioh: Defiant Honor. You can't really just jump into these levels without having mastered everything up through the campaign, and although that mentality might feel a little unwelcoming for some, I feel like Koei Tecmo gets it, and knows their audience.
Nioh has become bigger, harder and a bit more diverse. Defiant Honor is a great addition to the excellent game, which can be criticized only for the traditionally not realized plot potential and modest size of the new content. However, fans of hardcore and hunters for the best equipment will have a real test, because the complexity of the Way of the Wise will make you die a million times in anticipation of the last planned DLC, which is called "Bloodshed's End"

Unfortunately the boss encounters and disposable side missions sully whatever good this content had going for it. Still, despite my grievances, I feel as though Team Ninja are finally finding their groove with the DLC and I'm hoping that the final one will knock it out of the park.
