    As a stand-alone experience, The Tengu’s Disciple is a bit on the short end and there’s not much to the story at all, but it does provide some of the best boss battles to date. If the rest of the upcoming DLC provides the same level of gameplay and showdown quality as this chapter does, then Nioh 2 is going to have some incredible longevity going forward.

    Although a bit light on main missions, the amount of new content on offer here makes The Tengu’s Disciple a must for anyone who enjoyed the base game. The new weapon is a blast to use and the new difficulty ensures that those players who had capped out all of their gear and explored all regions fully will now have an incentive to play through not just the new content but also previous missions as well. Hopefully Team Ninja continue to support Nioh 2 with more content that is as high a quality as this is, and, going off of their past record, I feel confident in saying that I think that they will knock it out of the park… Let’s just hope that the wait is nowhere near as long between releases this time. Nioh 2 is already one of the best games of the year and this first DLC pack just serves to cement it in that position.

    Nioh 2: Tengo's Disciple remains on the same excellent level as the base game, avoiding overdoing it, but still giving a good handful of hours of new content.

    The Tengu's Disciple is a great addition to Nioh 2. It was great to go back and play through some of the original game locations before the protagonist William made his way through Yokai-infested Japan. The Splitstaff adds a great new weapon to master and some of the fresh enemies provide a great new challenge. Unfortunately, some hurdles the expansion puts in front of you feel incredibly unfair even for Nioh's standards.

    If you played the DLC for the first Nioh, then you already know what you're going to find in The Tengu's disciple: a downloadable content aimed for the hardcore players who want everything of Team Ninja's game. But, for that price, it's hard to say no to some more yokai slicing action..

    The Tengu’s Disciple is a beefy DLC for its price: the new missions are long and, most of the times, challenging, and the staff has many tools to play with. If you are ready for some serious grind, this expansion can keep you busy for hours and hours.

    New players to Nioh 2 should definitely consider saving their money until after they have completed the main story, but if they get through that 100 hours and are desperate for more, they can confidently pick up Nioh 2: The Tengu's Disciple and expect more of the same terrific gameplay - just not much else, and not as much of it as they'd perhaps like.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. The DLC is short, it reuses older maps, new enemies are annoying. Most submissions are just about fighting a single OP boss or waves of enemies. Instead of the splitstaff they could've just added a naginata which at least is an existing weapon. Expand
