    Labelling Nioh as "another Dark Souls clone", just doesn't do it justice. The Complete Edition is a package brimming with content, challenging gameplay, deep combat mechanics, Diablo-like looting and a fun crafting system to boot. It does not stick to its peers' blueprint, but it endeavours to evolve in a different beast, and for the most part, succeeds.

    Clearly with the focus on combat and challenging enemies, there are similarities with Nioh and From Software’s Souls games, but unlike other games that have built themselves to be copies of the successful formula, the team behind Nioh have added their style into the mix to make it more than another game trying to lure the fans of hardcore action RPGs to it. Those additional ideas build on an already solid foundation, but enable Nioh to standout above the rest of the inspired clones with its hectic, faster paced and varied combat and addictive loot mechanics, to go toe-to-toe with the company that initiated this new wave of challenging combat, going as far as to better them in some areas.

    Nioh successfully reinvents Souls with deeper combat and skill trees. [Issue#269, p.58]

    Nioh: Complete Edition is a great game. That much should be expected as the original release was. However, much like all Koei Tecmo PC ports, this release suffers from some glaring omissions and limitations. Fortunately, Team Ninja have already announced some patches to start improving the release.

    Captivating and challenging action RPG in the spirit of Dark Souls, but the PC conversion includes bizarre blunders.

    A fantastic show of force from the long-standing Team Ninja, but one that feels like it didn’t truly understand the mass appeal of the genre. Spruced up with the group’s signature style, Nioh only falters with its less captivating world. We can appreciate the heritage, but it won’t grab everyone.

    If you have ever praised the sun, or if you have any fear of the old blood, Nioh is an absolute must play. A fantastic and deep combat system, coupled with great boss design and a difficult yet fair effort/reward loop put Nioh right up there with its not so distant brothers in Dark Souls and Bloodborne. If I were to assign a score to the game, simply for its content it would absolutely be a solid “A”. Unfortunately, even though it is the Complete Edition, this is not necessarily the superior version of the game. If you only play games on PC, this game is still a no-brainer to pick up, but if you’re like me and have consoles as well as a computer, I think the PS4 may still be the place to play Nioh.

    Excelente juego muy bien optimizado EXELENT PORT. Dice requerimientos mínimos una gtx 780 y lo corro con una gtx 670 y un i7 3770k perfectoExcelente juego muy bien optimizado EXELENT PORT. Dice requerimientos mínimos una gtx 780 y lo corro con una gtx 670 y un i7 3770k perfecto 1920x1080p, q no tiene soporte de ratón y teclado, pero eso no significa q sea un mal PORT, solo ignorantes q lloran por jugar con teclado y ratón no deberían comprarlo, si no tienen para un control de 15 dólares mucho menos tendrán la computadora para correrlo, jugué los dark souls y este es un estilo muy diferente es mucho mas rápido y con diferentes posturas por armas, baja media y alta lo que hace realmente atractivo el juego, ya q a diferencia del dark souls este tiene por arma 3 veces mas ataques, las graficas están de lujo, el rendimiento no me canso de decirlo esta GENIAL y para mi eso es lo q lo hace un buen PC PORT no esa estupidez de q soporte teclado y ratón, q es lo q mas critican algunos reviewer en esta pagina, le explico para realizar un combo y cambiar postura en teclado mínimo tendría q oprimir de 6 a 7 teclas en control por los análogos solo 3 o 4 , este juego no es un Word of warcraft no es un mmo, por lo tanto no es necesario el teclado y el ratón, pero si es obligatorio un control con análogos, la historia si eres fanático de la era meiji samurai este es el juego para ti, el protagonista no es un japonés por q es un naufrago, pero de resto la verdad estoy muy feliz con este juegazo.

    recomendando y ojala lo ayuden comprándolo ya q es una exclusiva de ps4 traída al pc.

    good RPG Action game that is similar to bloodborne more than dark souls, the main difference between this and souls games is nioh is far moregood RPG Action game that is similar to bloodborne more than dark souls, the main difference between this and souls games is nioh is far more fast paced and grindy, meaning there is a lot more to do, but less worth while content. for example NG+ system is far far better than any souls games due to it having actual meaning and not a repeat, what this means is NG+ adds tons of new stuff and grind such as the abyss, twilight missions, and harder levels with new loot that is otherwise not available in the previous ngs. however a slight problem with the grind is that there is a lot of loot but only a percentage of them is worth while.

    I returned this after 2 hours.
    Not that the game is bad, but it's not for most gamers.
    I'm okay with dying but not with restarting from 10

    I'm okay with dying but not with restarting from 10 mins back.
    I'm not okay with enemies respawning once you go a bit far from them, either.
    I'm sure it didn't challenge the pro gamers much but still it's disappointing to see how this game is trying to hard to give you the impression that the game is difficult.
