Gameplay Mechanics

Nioh 2 is a game with a character development screen. The player must find better and more powerful equipment to strengthen his character. However, the player must play with a specific character using a katana. It gives the player the excitement of using katana and fighting legendary bosses. During the game, you can feel like a legendary samurai hunting dangerous creatures and enemies.

Ki Energy

The hardest part of the game is that you do your moves with an energy called Ki. Attacking your enemies by using your energy correctly gives you an advantage. If you spend your energy generously, you are creating a reason for your enemies to kill you. In this context, you should even choose the region where your character will step in the right way. You should never move more or less than necessary. In this respect, Nioh 2 is a game that teaches players balance and patience. The more effective use of the energy you play the game, the more advantageous you will be.

Skill Tree

The skill tree of the game is the part that will open the mechanics of different gameplays for you. You will notice that your character has two different skill types, active and passive. Active skills are skills that you can use during combat and give you different advantages. Passive skills are abilities that increase your character's statistical points such as hit points, and movement speed.

Soul Cores

You can use the soul cores you get from the bosses you kill to strengthen your character. The Soul Core system gives your character damage, HP, or skill increase. Thus, you will gain a great advantage when fighting large groups of enemies.

Noah 2 has a system where you can temporarily strengthen your character and turn it into a superhuman. This system is called Yokai Shift. While in this form, your opponents cannot reduce your HP bar. However, the time you spend in Yokai form is reduced when you deal and take damage. For this reason, you should continue to use dodge and block mechanics.

Game Graphics

Nioh 2 has a pessimistic and dark universe design. In other words, you can understand that you are fighting creatures and evil forces in the game through the atmosphere. The graphics of the game are realistically designed. Also, character animations and boss animations consistently show areas where you can take and deal damage.

Is Nioh 2 Worth Playing?

Nioh 2 will appeal to people who love the thrill of suddenly dying. The game is very brutal and some enemies get tiresome quickly. However, it offers a lot of depth and complex systems which give players plenty to explore.
