It’s not a revolutionary piece of DLC, but, much like the armor and weapons it adds to the game, it enhances an already-strong and relentless warrior.

The Tengu's Disciple is more of the same and that's largely okay. The historical figures and all-new yokai are memorable, the two main missions have good pacing, and the Splitstaff is just plain cool to wield. That said, I can't help but wish the story left a stronger impression – it ends a bit too abruptly.

If you played the DLC for the first Nioh, then you already know what your'e going to find in The tengu's disciple: a downloadable content aimed for the hardcore players who want everything of Team Ninja's game. But, for that price, it's hard to say no to some more yokai slicing action..

The Tengu's Disciple is a beefy DLC for its price: the new missions are long and, most of the times, challenging, and the staff has many tools to play with. If you are ready for some serious grind, this expansion can keep you busy for hours and hours.

I found this long awaited Season Pass and DLC to be worth every minute, even if I died hundreds of times. The new locations, Yokai boss battles, weapons, and enemies all intensified the demanding and challenging game. While I do wish the overall story was a bit deeper, maybe more will be explained in the two upcoming expansions.

The Tengu's Disciple is a great addition to Nioh 2. It was great to go back and play through some of the original game locations before the protagonist William made his way through Yokai-infested Japan. The Splitstaff adds a great new weapon to master and some of the fresh enemies provide a great new challenge. Unfortunately, some hurdles the expansion puts in front of you feel incredibly unfair even for Nioh's standards.

As a stand-alone experience, The Tengu's Disciple is a bit on the short end and there's not much to the story at all, but it does provide some of the best boss battles to date. If the rest of the upcoming DLC provides the same level of gameplay and showdown quality as this chapter does, then Nioh 2 is going to have some incredible longevity going forward.

Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple is a very short experiencie that tries to tell a whole story, but at the same time it acknowledges that it's still missing some parts of the overall narrative. Fans of the base game should definitely give this a go.

Nioh 2 finally gets its first piece of paid DLC and while not perfect, it's still a lot of fun.

Although a bit light on main missions, the amount of new content on offer here makes The Tengu's Disciple a must for anyone who enjoyed the base game. The new weapon is a blast to use and the new difficulty ensures that those players who had capped out all of their gear and explored all regions fully will now have an incentive to play through not just the new content but also previous missions as well.

Given the post-launch support of such a beloved game, it must be said that we expected a lot more

All in all, Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple is a solid piece of DLC. It doesn't break the mold, and it doesn't offer much that's new. What it does offer is more of the enjoyable gameplay that made Nioh 2 so fun. The new weapon is a nice bonus, even if it isn't for every player, and there's about 9-10 hours of content here. It's only for Nioh die-hards, but at $10, it's easily worth the price.

Following the first game extra content's steps, The Tengu's Disciple provides in the easiest possible way new reasons to enjoy Nioh 2. It may not be what is expected or ideal, but due to the low investment and added a huge replay factor, it ends up being a good option for the franchise lovers.

Despite its short and rushed story, Nioh 2's first DLC pack has some great content to play. The Tengu's Disciple game fully pays for its price. If you finished Nioh 2 and want some more, you are definitely in the right place.

Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple is a DLC that offers more than acceptable duration to take into account. Along with the two story missions and the side missions we will also have new options to customize the characters, as well as the Splitstaff, a real discovery. The Heian period, the new bosses and additions are other elements that can make you opt for this DLC. The Tengu's disciple is the first of 3 DLCs planned to be released.
