    Say what you will about some of these ancillary modes not being included in Nioh as a baseline, but I've gotten more out of the game than almost anything released this year.

    Nioh goes away just like it came: with an excellent combat system, some intense challenges and a fascinating recreation of the Japanese history and mythology. The formula may seem a bit stagnant at this point, but Bloodshed's End doesn't disappoint when it comes to offering a worthy send-off.

    Anjin's trip to Japan's Nioh ends in the best of ways, with a DLC representing the highest peak of the post launch support of an already outstanding title.

    Bloodshed’s End concludes the Nioh saga on a high note with amazing bosses and a new challenging mode. Not to mention it has some truly nostalgic throwbacks to Ninja Gaiden, and that alone, makes it a worthwhile experience.

    Bloodshed's End will be known for its great bossfights. This last piece of DLC is purely what Nioh stands for.

    Bloodshed's End affirms once again how much Team Ninja is dedicated to their audience: it's a DLC tailored for hardcore and dedicated fans, and the perfect conclusion to the Nioh experience, one of the best titles of 2017.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the best of Nioh's DLCs, Team Ninja has realized the perfect ending for this surprising game. This piece of content offers many different missions in many different locations (something new and something we've already known, but all of them presents a very good level design). The DLC is also full of boss fights, some of these are new and others are bosses we've already fought. The old ones are really fun fights from the previous DLCs or from the base game, while the new bosses are so interesting, varied and cool, some of the best boss fights of the entire game. The end of the DLC is really the grand finale Nioh deserved, it's absolutely epic and amazing. Now, I have no doubts: Nioh is surely one of the best games of the year. Expand

    This DLC is my favourite one in Nioh by far. There is a perfectly named final difficulty introduced. There is an abyss mode for endlessThis DLC is my favourite one in Nioh by far. There is a perfectly named final difficulty introduced. There is an abyss mode for endless difficulty for anyone into that. There is no new weapon type but I can't think of anything missing here. The best part was the story where you see how parts of Japanese history materialized and a nostalgic closure for many characters in the series. Nioh got the ending it deserved in an epic and fantastic farewell! Expand
