What the Critics Say
Nioh Complete Edition has received mostly positive reviews from critics, who praised its rich, technical combat, terrific, Asian-influenced visual style and setting, well-designed, highly detailed levels, and staggering amount of content. However, some critics also pointed out some flaws, such as the complex combat systems that can be overwhelming for new players, the randomized loot that makes weapon progression tedious, the multi-opponent engagements that are frustratingly difficult on higher difficulty missions, and the iffy port that has some limitations and issues.
Here are some excerpts from some of the reviews:
"The PC version of Nioh delivers excellent action and a staggering amount of content. Mastering the gameplay systems may seem overwhelming for new players, but those who stick with it will be rewarded." - Gabriel Zamora, PCMag (4/5) Read full review
"Nioh brings its own punch to the party by adding badass spirit animal summons, chaining combos, and fighting stances to a combat system that would have otherwise felt too derivative. Although the port to PC has a disregard for keyboard controls bordering on outright rude, Nioh's swift, layered combat was worth retraining my muscle memory for." - Lauren Morton, PC Gamer (78/100) Read full review
"Nioh: Complete Edition is a great game. That much should be expected as the original release was. However, much like all Koei Tecmo PC ports, this release suffers from some glaring omissions and limitations." - Chris Wray, Wccftech (8/10) Read full review
"Nioh: Complete Edition is a worthy âSoulsbourneâ game, and maybe one of the best. With the inclusion of all the DLC and the great performance of the port, Nioh should be a day 1 purchase for all fans of the genre." - William Murphy, GameSpace (9/10) Read full review
