GSY Video PS5 PC PS4

The first Nioh got its Complete Edition when it was released on PC so it is no surprise to see that Nioh 2 has been given the same treatment, a few months after it came out as an exclusive title on Playstation 4. Sadly, we ran into many technical issues with the PC version, despite a very powerful rig (RTX 3080, Ryzen 5900X). For starters, we were never able to select 4K as a resolution in the game when playing on our LG CX and HDR didn't work either. Then, performance remained disappointing in 4K, 1440p and even 1080p, which explains the dips you will see. Another oddity on our end is that we've never been able to play the game at 120 fps, it simply wouldn't work. Note that DLSS is supposed to be added for launch as well as Xbox prompt buttons so don't be surprised to see the PS4 ones in our videos... We sincerely hope the game will be patched to fix the technical issues, although we are perfectly aware that not everyone will encounter the same problems than we have. We'll make more videos if things improve (or when it does). PS5 owners are luckier thankfully as we've had no issues when playing the Nioh Collection in either 4K/60fps or 120 fps (we could not record 120 fps gameplay though, our Ninja device doesn't seem to work as it should at such high frame rate). You will also find gameplay PS5 videos of the 2 remastered titles inside.

The embargo for Nioh 2 was lifted about an hour ago, our review is up on the French side, but I neither have the time nor the strength to translate the verdict to you guys this time as it is getting kind of late here. All I can say is that I've spent a good amount of time on the game, though I haven't managed to complete it yet because I wanted to finish the first one first (which made me start the sequel a few days we were sent the review code). The game has made me terribly frustrated at times, the first bosses (number 2 and 3) being unfairly difficult (even after beating the first game just before), but I've also had a great time playing. I believe the game needs a bit more balance in the way its difficulty is handled, which might come in a future patch who knows, but it's clearly a sequel which should please the fans. If Dark Souls is more your thing, I don't think you'll change your mind about Nioh as level design is pretty easy to read in comparison and difficulty is handled in a much better way in From Software's games, at least in my book. That being said, if you're looking for the improbable mix between Diablo, Monster Hunter, Ninja Gaiden and the Souls series, Team Ninja has something in store for you.
