The end result is a game that feels too familiar all the way through with fleeting moments of originality. That being said, it is still worth it for diehard Soulsborne fans and/or lovers of the original Nioh.

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.
