Nioh Review

By Rishi Alwani (Feb 2, 2017)
  • Good
  • Great setting
  • An abundance of systems to tinker with
  • Compelling moment to moment gameplay
  • Bad
  • Inconsistent environments
  • Frame-rate and frame-pacing concerns

What do Final Fantasy XV, The Last Guardian, and Nioh have in common? They're all oft-delayed video games that are finally seeing the light of day. Announced in 2004 under the working title of Oni, it was first meant to be a traditional Japanese role-playing game, then it pivoted to a hack and slash game, similar to the Dynasty Warriors series. Finally, it releases as Nioh, an action role-playing game in the mould of Dark Souls, with an emphasis on over the top bosses and punishing difficulty. Or so would the game's marketing have us believe. Could it be more than that? Read on to find out.
