Storyline

The game opens with a narration by William describing Amrita, a mystical golden stone found in abundance in Japan that is sought by the government of Queen Elizabeth I to secure victory over Spain. William is held in the Tower of London, but breaks out with the help of his Spirit Guardian Saoirse, a being born from the prayers of his home village who saved him from death when he was a boy and now prevents him from dying. William corners Edward Kelly, who is seeking Japan's Amrita. Capturing Saoirse with his own Ouroboros spirit, Kelly uses her to find Japan, with William going in pursuit. Landing in Japan in 1600, he fights Oni that are ravaging the area, catching the attention of Hanzo Hattori.

My thoughts about Nioh
25 June 2019 | by MiikkiS_988See all my reviews

To start, this is the first time i'm writing a "review" of anything.

The thing about Nioh is that it's much more than just some clone of Dark Souls. Sure there's some similarities to Souls-games, like gaining levels with your Amrita (souls) and altars (bonfires) or when dying you lose everything,but those similarities end there. Sure the combat too may look like it's the same kind that was in Souls, but it's more fast paced here and reminds a bit of Ninja Gaiden.

Although they released the game back in -17, i however got the game just a couple months ago and so for me it's new and fresh experience.And cause it's so new to me so i can't say if that's why, but i personally like Nioh more than i like Souls-Series.

To this end, i realize that this wasn't much of a review, just wanted to write something about the game that i've fallen in love with. :D

Peace ^^
