The lush greenery and safety of the village gradually give way to a desolate wasteland known as the Otherworld that was formed by rifts in space-time created by the Oni.

Toukiden 2 - Promotional Trailer 2
Positive: 2 out of 4
Mixed: 2 out of 4
Negative: 0 out of 4
Mar 23, 2017Toukiden 2 is exceptionally well-made and can readily provide countless hours of entertainment for those who enjoy an action-packed hunting-style game with a sprinkling of RPG. There's ever more to unlock as you progress, granting some new feature to play with, rewarding you for making your way through the game. Battles that last a few minutes or so may be tedious, but the vastness of the world, filled with its various items, objects, and quests - not to mention the preponderous depth of the Mitama system — easily vanquish any sense of Oni ennui.
Game World Navigator MagazineApr 25, 2017Combat boils down to cutting off and devouring everything that can be cut off and devoured. It’s enjoyable for a while, but there’s a lot of missions in the game and not nearly enough variations of monsters, so hunts quickly become very MMORPG’ey in terms of predictability and routine. [Issue#219, p.74]
Mar 21, 2017Toukiden 2 ends up offering something that’s lacking in all departments.There’s too much fluff between the good stuff, but it still offers a somewhat exhilarating experience in short bursts. If you’re looking for a combat-heavy co-op experience on PC, it’s not a bad choice at all - but if you’re coming from similar games, you’ll likely be left feeling generally underwhelmed.

It's taken forever for one of these Monster Hunter type games to embrace an open world design. Definitely doesn't feel like Koei-Tecmo's usual Warriors gimmick where they slap a couple new characters in it, rework the story a tad and release a bare bones sequel. They actually mixed it up a great deal. The character models are a lot better, and the character customization is much deeper. The Demon's Hand and "soul dash" mechanics make traversing the world fun. I've got an old GTX 770, I'm getting a solid 60 fps with settings maxed out. We finally got 60 fps, and in that regard the better port, because both PS4 and Vita are stuck at 30 fps. Sure there's no mouse support, Do people honestly not have a PS3/PS4, 360/Xbone controller lying around that they can plug into their pc's? If not, just use your keyboard and the lock on features to minimize the need for a mouse. But the game wasn't designed for mouse and keyboard, if you can afford these games new, go get a controller already. O.o
My only gripes for Omega Force would be to try to better match Monster Hunter's difficulty. That and substantially up the world's graphics, with recent titles like Hyrule Warriors and Dragon Quest Heroes we know they're capable. Omega Force needs to step into the next generation already instead of tending to frequently hang two generations behind everyone else graphically. It's most likely the Vita that's holding everyone back. The game is a blast though. Hopefully as they perfect the hunting game formula they can eventually prod Capcom into playing with the big dogs again where big monsters belong----on the big screen. The 3DS 800 x 240 res 4.88' screen just doesn't cut it for slaying life sized dragons and it's a shame. This title is really worth around a 7.5/10. I'm giving it a 10/10 because some moron gave it a 1.… Expand

This game has a decent cast of characters but I quickly lost interest because of how much reading there actually is here..
This is a port from japan... there are no English dubs here, so it’s going to be hard for anyone that doesn’t speak Japanese to really enjoy this game…
The lack of English dubs is really prevalent during battles and tutorials…
The game is trying to tell you how to play as you play…
Very easy to die and take damage while you’re trying to read the paragraph of text... try to comprehend the system the game is trying to teach all while fighting enemies…
This is an open world hack and slash game…
You get materials around the world to craft better weapons and armor while you complete the various tasks from the village you’re living in…
The game slowly introduces new mechanics…
in addition to just being a straight up hack and slash game..
you’re introduced to a demon hand/claw move that you use to pull yourself into enemies, pull off special tasks, and proceed though areas in this open world…
You’ll also every once in a while get tasked with taking out an oni.. hunting it down in a shallow witcher 3 style of just following its tracks and take it out by cutting off different botty parts and weakening it…
there is no health gage on enemies though so boss battles can definitely feel like a grind…
Even with your party of 4 members that do great at holding their own…
But you’re rewarded with new mitama each time, which are essentially stat boost cards that add new perks and abilities to your character but at a cost…
such as your health gradually decreasing when a bonus is active…
Unfortunately the rest of the game feels just as grindy as these boss battles…
mostly because of the lack of English dubs…
You basically go to a spot on the map, return, read a harry potter book, go to another spot on the map to hunt down a giant oni.. Return
read another harry potter book
rinse and repeat...
There’s an unbearable amount of reading here…
after 3 hours of reading I was completely over the story and just started skipping through to the gameplay…
Which again... isn’t that great either…
The world is beautiful at times and fun to explore, but there are very brief moments of battle sandwiched in between a book.
Toukiden 2 is an okay game.
If you like reading more than you like playing…
I give Toukiden 2
a 6/10… Expand
Apr 28, 20170/10. If you're going to release a game to PC, it should be **** playable on PC. I shouldn't have to buy a controller anyway just because the0/10. If you're going to release a game to PC, it should be **** playable on PC. I shouldn't have to buy a controller anyway just because the devs wouldnt implement a usable port, because the game should be 100% functional with the keyboard/mouse to begin with. I finished playing Bayonetta for PC, and they had one of the best ports I've ever experienced: I get 2 minutes into Toukiden 2, and here's what I've learned: W-A-S-D for movement. I-J-K-L for attacks and dodging. Here's the kicker: T-F-G-H for CAMERA control. WHAT THE **** The mouse isn't used at all, which shows how little of a **** Tecmo cares for PC users. Probably better to pirate games like these, so you don't support ****ty PC ports.… Expand
Jul 16, 2017I think all the games, especially Japanese games which has been ported from Consoles should never be sale. No performance optimization, no KBI think all the games, especially Japanese games which has been ported from Consoles should never be sale. No performance optimization, no KB & Mouse support.
PC versions are more beautiful than Console with full Graphics Effects and various resolutions.… Expand
