First Reviews: NiOh 2 - Great Sequel for Action RPG Fans

The web has been flooded with reviews of NiOh 2 RPGs, which show that the devs have prepared an excellent sequel, which develops solutions known from the original in a thoughtful way.

According to the reviews, NiOh 2 is a worthy continuation of the first part.

On Friday, NiOh 2 a continuation of the popular action RPG from 2017, will debut on the market. A lot of reviews (including ours) have already been published on the web, and they show that Team Ninja delivered.

NiOh 2 currently has an average rating of 86% on Metacritic. For comparison, the PS4 version of the first part of the series boasts a rating of 88%. Here are some examples review scored. Our editor gave the game a 8.5/10.

The reviewers praise the game for its excellent combat system, which has been expanded compared to the already excellent original. NiOh 2 also impresses with its extensive content and interesting character designs. The campaign's rather weak start and some bosses are criticized, however.

All editors emphasize that the game does not introduce any revolutionary solutions, but only improves and expands on what the first part offered. However, the reviewers don't mind, because proven solutions still give a lot of fun, and the devs have expanded the formula so much that there is no room for boredom.

As a reminder, NiOh 2 will be released on March 13, this year, exclusively on PlayStation 4. The PC version of the first part was released nine months after its debut on PS4, so we hope it will be the same in the case of the sequel.
