Nioh 2 

The sequel to Team Ninja’s excellent blend of the action and Souls-like genres is here, and it succeeds as a wonderful evolution of everything that the first game did right, even though its many systems can sometimes slow the otherwise blistering pace.

What makes Nioh 2’s combat system stand out among other action RPG games?

Nioh 2 is an action role-playing game developed by Team Ninja, and it was released on March 13th, 2020, for PlayStation 4. The game received critical acclaim for its gameplay mechanics, story, visuals, and soundtrack. In this article, we will review Nioh 2 and explore the reasons why it’s a must-play game for action RPG fans.


As an action RPG, Nioh 2’s gameplay is fast-paced, challenging, and rewarding. Players take on the role of a half-human, half-yokai warrior, battling their way through feudal Japan. The game’s combat system is one of the best in the genre, with different weapons and skills to choose from, allowing players to customize their playstyle. Nioh 2 also introduces new gameplay mechanics such as Yokai Shift, allowing players to transform into powerful yokai for a limited time. The game’s difficulty is also noteworthy. While the game is challenging, it’s never unfair, offering a learning curve that challenges players to improve their skills.


The game’s story takes place before the events of the first Nioh game. Players follow the story of a hired mercenary known as the “Hide,” who later becomes a Yokai Hunter. It’s an engaging story that blends historical events and Japanese mythology into the game’s narrative, filled with twists and turns that keep players engaged. While the story may not be the most original, it’s executed excellently, with compelling characters, great voice acting, and impressive cutscenes.

Graphics and Sound

Nioh 2’s visuals are breathtaking, from the game’s character designs to the game’s environments. The game is set in different locations, such as forests, lakes, and temples, and they’re all beautifully rendered, creating an immersive atmosphere. The game’s soundtrack is exceptional as well, ranging from traditional Japanese music to intense battle themes, complementing the game’s gameplay and story.


Nioh 2 is a masterpiece of an action RPG game that surpasses its predecessor in almost every aspect. From its gameplay mechanics to its story, graphics, and sound, Nioh 2 offers an unforgettable experience that action RPG fans should not miss. It’s a game that you can easily sink hours into, and with its high replay value, it’s a game that you’ll keep coming back to. In conclusion, Nioh 2 is a must-play game and one of the best action RPG games of this generation.
