Nioh 2's many systems may be a little overwhelming, but the stellar combat and satisfying difficulty make it worth it.

An absorbing, tense and well-wrought samurai adventure let down by a little too much recycling and some muddled new systems.

It's not changed much but what improvements there are, are all positive in what remains the best Dark Souls clone not made by From Software.

Nioh 2 is even tougher than the original, and you'll get on its level or happily die trying.

Nioh 2 is a big improvement on an already impressive initial outing. With more weapons and powers, combat expands into something truly special, while the story holds more emotion and impact.

Nioh 2 crafts its tough experience with precise, delicious Team Ninja combat. On top of that is an entire mass of additional systems that offer players a way forward if your skills aren't top-notch. When those systems come together, Nioh 2 can make you feel powerful, but it does feel like a mess of numbers and bonuses thrown your way at times. You're surprisingly versatile, but you're also forced into a lot of management. A bit of trimming would've led to a near-perfect experience, rather than just a great one.

An overwhelming amount of RPG systems, sublime controls, and fast-paced, skill-based combat mixes in with Team Ninja’s own stylistic flair and puts Nioh 2 more than a few cuts above other games that shamelessly ape From’s precious formula.
