A long, long time ago, Japan was facing a time of great turmoil in the wake of a major civil conflict. Nioh, created by Team Ninja exclusively for the PlayStation 4, takes us back to the 1600s, where action gaming meets Samurai history and culture in a way we have never seen before.
When you play games like Nioh, regardless of if you are drawn to them by the rich historical setting or the high-action gameplay, you will almost certainly always leave satisfied with your experience.
For anyone familiar with “Souls-style” games, such as the Dark Souls Franchise, Demons Souls, or Lords of the Fallen, this game will provide a breath of fresh air to the genre while still bringing the challenging gameplay that you love.
This action RPG will see you acquire better weapons and armor in order to beat bigger and better foes, as well as spend points in their character leveling system in order to increase your combat abilities.
You play as William, a blond-haired swordsman with a lifetime of combat experience behind him. So, when the forces of darkness come to conquer Japan, William is well-equipped to fight against the hordes of demons that stand between him and his goals.
If you are a fan of the souls-like genre, or if you are looking for a game to gradually introduce you to that style of game, you could not ask for a better game than Nioh. While it is a PlayStation Exclusive, it is a must-play for anyone who enjoys the intense action.
However, if you have beaten Nioh, or simply do not have a PlayStation and are looking for some games like it that you can try out instead, we are happy to say that we have a few new games for you to try.
