Discovered the first game a couple months after its release, and it was my favorite game of 2017. An absolute gem.

Nioh 2 doesn't try to be daring or groundbreaking, instead focusing on tweaking the fundaments of combat from the first game and adding even more tools to your arsenal. If you don't like one weapon, you have eight or so other melee weapon types to choose from (all of which play vastly different AND scale to different stats, so you'll never run the risk of boosting a stat that doesn't increase the damage output of at least one weapon type). You can toy with three different weapon stances for each type, giving you the option to —on the fly— be slow as molasses but hit like a truck or inflict death by a thousand cuts. Or something in between! And if you STILL aren't super happy with melee combat, you could instead opt to be a ninja or a mage, throwing around shuriken, fire bombs, elemental spells, buffs, debuffs.

Each and every weapon and piece of armor has passive (or even occasionally active) skills that can boost almost any item effect, skill, weapon type or attack in the game, so if there's a way of killing enemies in the game, you can buff that into your primary way of killing people. Wanna be a gunner? Grab some gun damage up, bullseye bonus damage, aiming move speed up, a whole bunch of untouched ammo (chance of not expending ammo), auto-target. You'll be a crack shot murder machine without enemies even seeing you. Want to abuse burn damage on your favorite weapon? Roll some equipment skills that give Scorch Accumulation Up and Scorched Damage Up-- a buddy I've been playing with just loads up on fire shuriken and firebombs, then burns everything into oblivion with that scorch damage-over-time and the damage increase to his attacks on enemies that are burning.

Multiplayer is also handled in a great way: Exploration Mode lets up to three people do missions together, and there are no limits to what any of those players can do-- unlike Souls games where there's a primary player and helper players have to've already beaten the area they're in, all players can be new to a stage and all will get the story progression that comes with completing it. But it's not Easy Mode, as stages will have more enemies lurking around to compensate for the increase in friendlies.

Can't recommend this game enough. It's a missing link between Souls-like RPGs and tough/stylish action games like Onimusha, Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry. With a bit of lootwhoring mixed in.

Ugh they are trying to get me helllp. My back log is already insane. Still trying to do a no death run of Nioh 1 too haha. Great deal but I'll pass as it'll get lower as the years go by. Sorry game devs, can't support you right now.

Nioh 2 is a samurai themed drive you crazy game, like Dark souls. Addicting and makes you realize that greed is the biggest obstacle in these games.

So tempted to get, but with my backlog realistically there's no way I'll get to this game before Cyberpunk 2077, PS5/Xbox series X hits 4th quarter this year.

I couldn't have said it better myself. I think Nioh is an immensely overlooked series - the first one did a lot to shake up the Dark Souls formula, and Nioh 2 expanded it even further. Say what you will about Dark Souls combat, I think Nioh does it much better. This is a fantastic price for this game.

Playing Nioh 1 now... and I'm sure the price for Nioh 2 SE will keep dropping before I finish Nioh 1, but I still placed the order... phew... it feels so good.

There are definitely tie-ins to the first game, but this story is both a prequel and pretty barebones-- the first game largely focused on the last of Japan's "Three Great Unifiers," and this game is just an opportunity to flesh out the first two. The plot doesn't provide any important continuity, and is more or less just a greatest hits collection of late Sengoku-era Japan's most dramatic battles.

Feel free to skip the first.

Sometimes, when life seems too easy and stress free, I put in my copy of Nioh 2 and punish myself for hours. Getting killed over and over and over again. Good times. Highly recommend this game.
