Nioh: Complete Edition
Top Critic Average
Nioh is hamstrung by a sloppy PC port, but still manages to bring new ideas to death-treadmill action RPGs.
A sloppy port but this is still the best SoulsBorne clone out there, with plenty of unique ideas of its own and some of the best combat of the generation.
Nioh, one of this year's best PS4 exclusives comes to PC, and I am both elated and frustrated.
It's a game about raising your own level and mastering one of the finest combat systems ever put on a screen. It might be standing on the shoulders of Souls, but it's got its eyes on a very different destination.
Nioh: Complete Edition is a great game. That much should be expected as the original release was. However, much like all Koei Tecmo PC ports, this release suffers from some glaring omissions and limitations. Fortunately, Team Ninja have already announced some patches to start improving the release.
The acclaimed Nioh marks its debut on PC without any particular accomplishment or novelties: the PC version, that includes the three previously released DLCs, can either be defined "pure" or "lazy", depending on your point of view. The game is exactly the same we already appreciated on PS4, including the lack of support for mouse and keyboard.

Nioh: Complete Edition is arguably the best way to experience Team Ninja's fantastic action-adventure. Its tight combat requires fierce determination and its massive world can be daunting at first, but William is more than equipped to take on the horrors that await him.
The PC version of Nioh delivers excellent action and a staggering amount of content. Mastering the gameplay systems may seem overwhelming for new players, but those who stick with it will be rewarded.
With the right setup and using a gamepad, Nioh is an enjoyable and passable experience on the PC. There's lots of content, the gameplay is fun (if you like this style of gameplay).
When it was released earlier this year, Nioh was far more than just a Dark Souls clone; it was an intense, action-packed and painfully-challenging action RPG that carved its own path.
