Explore a fantastical and dark vision of 16th century Japan – fight alongside and against legendary heroes and villains of the Warring States period.

When a human is transformed into a demon by the power of Amrita, the result is a Yoki, a hightly agressive being whose body is 20-30% larger than a normal human.
Onryoki is a giant red demon born from the amassment of vengeful spirits. Half its face is a burning flame of anger, while the other half is warped by rancor. Countless spirits give it an eerie appearance, and horrendous voices emit from its body. Most would want to avert their eyes from this horrid demon.
Hitotsume-Oni is a large demon that only has one eye located in the center of its face It is said that Hitostume-Oni with two eyes were once human or entity that was affected and consumed by negative emotions of humans. One-eyed Hitotsume-Oni, on the other hand, are the reincarnation of the violent tendencies belonging to the mountain gods and spirits.
Onyudo is a huge Yokai that appears to be a novice monk. Having been unable to sever the worldly desires, these monks in training monks betrayed their disciplines and fallen deep in the nadir. They collect the skulls of their victims and wear them across their shoulders like a rosary. If you do not want to be part of their collection, its best to not get close to them.
Ready your blade – grueling encounters await around every corner of a vast land ravaged by civil war.
To triumph you’ll need patience, to learn where each foe – human or demon – is strong, and when to strike at their weaknesses.

- Amazing and highly technical combat
- High level of customization (armor, weapons, skills, magic, attributes) which leads to replay value
- Lots of content (50-80 hr game depending on your pace and how many side missions you want to tackle)
- Good co-op system (PVP coming soon)
- New game plus adds new difficulty and new weapon rarity
- Sometimes it feels like too much loot. Others may like this, but I feel like it dilutes the significance of certain items. It also leads to spending a lot of time managing your inventory.
Overall, the game is amazing. While this game may take inspiration from Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Omnimusha, and Ninja Gaiden... the concepts were all melded together to create a masterpiece on its own. If you enjoyed any of those games and enjoy rewarding and complex combat systems, you'll love this game.
In conclusion, Nioh stands strong on its own, which is absolutely fantastic for the genre. It proves that FROMSOFTWARE isn't alone in the craft, and there is still room to grow. I find myself loving Nioh, above the rest of the feelings. I am challenged, rewarded, and impressed, but above all I simply love the game.
Nioh is a critical must purchase for every playstation collection.
There are three stances that the player can adopt for combat, and each of them has their own strengths and weaknesses based on the opponents you're facing at the time. Some attacks are swift and do not drain much stamina, allowing them to be used frequently. Then there are slow attacks that can leave your opponents reeling (but leave you vulnerable if you miss your target). Add the hundreds of weapons available for you to use and the number of combinations increases exponentially. This, of course, increases the sense of satisfaction when you vanquish giant demons and spirits.
The enemies in Nioh are taken from Japanese folklore for the most part, and the sheer volume of them keeps things interesting and fresh. Fun fact: the game's title comes from the term used to refer to the two Deva kings from Japanese myths.
I really dig this game. It's been a fun romp and atmospheric journey. For an action RPG, Nioh is really getting close to my ideal set up.
From the combat, to the environment and the enemies. It's well done. And as long as this game was on the back burner it needs to be well done.
The games production value are not AAA... but in the context of things, its pretty good.
If you want a Action RPG that has a layered combat system, that is both easy to pick up, but gets deeper the more you play especially with the three stances. Give this game a shot!
The only thing I would peg against this game.. the ONLY thing that the developer/publisher (Whatever you call the decision maker) is the Co-op.
In the Demo right up until release... you could team up with randoms it didn't matter what.. you could have a blast with random people.. your friends included. Teaming up with people wasn't a pain in the butt. And then when the game released, and when I last played it, you had to beat a level before you could team up with your friend to tackle it. And teaming up with strangers suddenly became more difficult.
This deal with co-op was the only thing that made me Livid about the game. And I thought was absolutely stupid to do. I don't know what kind of back end BS the developer pulled here.. but it was absolute garbage.
Other than that, the game was pretty awesome. Give it a shot!
Worth the money.
