Looking good. Team Ninja have done it again!

I really loved the first one. Team Ninja seemed to struggle for a while there, with Ninja Gaiden 3, and Yaiba. The original Nioh was in development hell for a long time. Eventually they retooled it to be a Souls clone, and suddenly they were back on top!

Same here.

I could never get into the Souls games. Sekiro was too slow too. Nioh just gets everything right. They've taken the Souls blueprint, ran with it, and in my opinion, made it better.

Ninja Gaiden 3 was disappointing. Razor's Edge was solid though. The combat was amazing. Possibly the best in the series there. I enjoyed Yaiba too, but... yep. The critics and community didn't.

Great to see Team Ninja back at the peak though! 



Recently started the first Nioh, and so far I'm enjoying it very much. Not quite on the level of FromSoftware's stuff, but out of all the Soulslike games that have come in their wake, Nioh is easily among the best. Not sure when I'll actually get to Nioh 2, but it's nice to hear it's very good.

I got it, but haven't started it yet. Want ti finish Kakarot first.
I really like the first one, and hope Oketsu is in this one as well somewhere.



Strong Game for Souls-Fans.

The new Characters looks 100 % better than Ni-Oh1.



The best summer of all time, for all GAMER:

Great game, I hope it will sell somewhat well. Its very difficult but its also fair, they also took a bit of God of War DNA.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

Well done

Number 1 in Japan and UK, great :)
In my opinion, Ni-Oh2 is better than the first. Better Characters and Story.
