Nioh 2 is, easily, the most accessible and yet still appealing Soulsborne in the genre. While other games are content to be difficult with no substance beyond that goal, Nioh 2 combines a deep and flashy combat system with a vaguely historical plot that isn’t afraid to have a little fun when the situation calls for it. It also gives you the tools to practice its systems until you are your own master samurai, ninja, or mage, rather than throwing you to the wolves. It is the rare game that demands you run, with the hopes that you will fly.
