    Toukiden 2 is a great leap towards a much-needed evolution, and it dares to add new things and challenge tradition. Hunting games usually get an enhanced edition that adds all kinds of stuff and I eagerly await what Omega Force will bring on next time around. In the mean time, I’m gonna play more of this game for a few dozen more hours.

    Monster Hunter fans should check this game out. It has a lot of depth to it while still being an accessible hunting game without all the preparation needed. It feels a bit more action-based, while still feeling familiar. At the same time, action RPG players will find a lot of fun here with Toukiden 2, and people always wanting to get into the Monster Hunter genre can find an easy time here. I highly suggest this game to action fans as well as fans of the RPG genre, and yes, I know how a lot of Monster Hunter purists are, but they should really try this one out as well. It may not be as deep in some aspects but it does have its merits. I can easily see myself playing this game for the next few months, and if you let it hook its demon hand into you, you will too.

    Minor annoyances aside, Toukiden 2 has some truly addictive gameplay and tonnes of content to chew through. The game's dripping with atmosphere and looks great, with plenty of varied, large open world areas to explore. Meanwhile, the battle system is satisfyingly fast paced, and nothing quite compares to the power trip of ripping off the body parts of a giant demon.

    A great successor to the original game and a decent addition to the “hunting” genre especially for those who look for something simpler than the Monster Hunter series.

    Toukiden 2 can get repetitive at times with battles that go on way too long but it's still a fun monster hunting game that fans of that genre should be able to enjoy.

    Another enjoyable but greatly perfectible new entry in the Toukiden series. If you liked Kiwami, this is the “more of the same” you're waiting for.

    Toukiden 2 could have been a fair game, if only it weren't so visually ugly and so absolutely not user friendly.

    Huge improvement over Toukiden 1 and Kiwami. It's taken forever for one of these Monster Hunter type games to embrace an open world design.Huge improvement over Toukiden 1 and Kiwami. 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.

    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 2.

    La gente lo compara mucho con el monster hunter pero nada que ver, para mi es más comparable con el Phantasy Star Universe. Hacía tiempo queLa gente lo compara mucho con el monster hunter pero nada que ver, para mi es más comparable con el Phantasy Star Universe. Hacía tiempo que buscaba un juego como PSU y este tiene todo lo que buscaba: Historia, mundo abierto, buen diseño de peronajes, hermosa música.

    Yo no jugué Kiwami, vi solo el demo y me pareció horrible, se puede jugar a este tranquilamente sin haber jugado al anterior.

    Yes!

    The closest you'll get to the monster hunter franchise within PS4 and PC realm. This is Toukiden 1 on steroid.

    Faster combats, new weapons set, and a new demon claw feature that is just absolutely a delight to play with. Definitely a stark improvement from the first one.

    Better yet, it's better animated and voice acted than Mass Effect Andromeda, this is a buy. Especially if you've been hungry for a Monster Hunter game on PC or PS4.

    Thanks Koei!

    Like Reading a Book
    In Toukiden 2 you create your characters and play as a slayer
    You get zapped 10 years into the future and you lose all of your memories…
    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

    Great title with tons of replay value and lots of fun bosses that is pretty much essential if you enjoy hunting games. Gets zero stars thoughGreat title with tons of replay value and lots of fun bosses that is pretty much essential if you enjoy hunting games. Gets zero stars though because Tecmo-Koei are insufferable tools that insist on disabling external music and Spotify in every one of their releases. Every single moment that Toukiden 2 is running is considered a "blocked scene" just to make sure that players cannot listen to their own music. It's beyond trash ordinarily, but the fact that this a game in a genre which requires hundreds of hours of heavy grinding makes it unforgivable. If they ever update their game and fix this crap I will update my score. Until then, I've got nothing but a huge middle finger for Tecmo-Koei and every other dev that tries to pull this stupid BS. I will never understand why Sony even allows it in the first place. Expand
