In Nioh, players will traverse war-torn Japan as William, a blonde-haired swordsman whose background as a fierce warrior and seasoned knowledge of the blade allows him to survive in the demon-plagued land of the samurai. Known as Yokai, these demons inhabit a number of dangerous locations and lie in wait in the shadows to ambush unsuspecting victims. Players will also face off with other samurai in supernatural sword battles and intense, multi-target engagements offering a level of difficulty that will truly test even the most hardened samurai's skills, patience, and strategy.
- Offering a deep and original storyline that takes place during the Warring States Period of Japanese history alongside strategic sword-fighting action, Nioh will challenge players in a way that makes every mission and accomplishment feel earned and worthwhile.

A pathetic attempt at the Dark Souls formula

Good game and NOT a total DS clone like people say it is.

You play as William Adams, a real life historical figure as the character is based on the very first Westerner to become a Samurai. You follow his tale as you hunt down one Edward Kelly and stop him before he rules the world with mystical stones with power called "Amrita"which also serves as the games currency to level up with.
The difficulty is on par with Dark Souls but the fighting mechanics are a lot more layered and detailed than that of a Souls game. A more apt comparison would be that of Onimusa, Ninja Gaiden or Tenchu. The story is a lot more easier to follow and while it does have a mission structure instead of having one big open world, the levels are so well designed that you get used to them really quickly.Co-op is available (Only online though, no local co-op I'm afraid) as well as a PVP-mode that will be released for free with a future update
All in all. I wasn't much of a fan of the Souls Series. but this game even though it is difficult is a lot more fun and enjoyable. The tools you have when playing this game is a lot more varied. Want to be a stealthy fast sneaky ninja? Go for it. Like using magic to destroy your foes? Psh it's there for ya. Wan't to be a general bad-ass and just use all of em? DO ITT!!!
9/10 game for sure
ITS AMAZING and slightly frustrating
