The story is too old to be commented.

If you had a PS+ account (Sorry can't speak for XBox1) you could have got the base game for free.

The introduction where you escape from the Tower of London is fairly easy although if you try to melee enemies or attack heavily armoured guards without some skill then you will die very quickly.

Many would classify this game as "Souls-like" and while there are some comparisons the fighting styles are much more comprehensive in that you have three stances which can dramatically change how you attack. In addition you over time and training you can gain Ninja and Onmyoji (ie. magic) techniques as well as Samurai (you start at a base level) skills.

Yes, there is nothing like backstabs and headshots (mini cannon, rifle and bow) to get the blood going. Unfortunately, the enemies can also do the same to you and it is always a good idea not to get involved in mob enemy fights were possible.

One thing you will see on your map are twilight missions. Take one that has a higher level (say +5) than what you are currently at and you may as well commit "seppuku" or “harakiri” (you really can do this) although you can get some quite good rewards if you can survive.😊

BTW. If you are playing online you will most likely see graves (even in offline you will still see a few) of people who have died. Touch one and the "now" zombie will attack you. Be very careful you are warned what the level and some of the attributes and weapons of the "zombie" are and if its level is much higher than your level there is a good chance you will die. You may be able to get some better weapons and armour though, so take a chance. 😣

Like all the Souls games you are going to die a lot when playing NioH, especially when playing for the first time.

i got it from PS plus i couldnt get into it, something felt off idky i like the beta yrs back. maybe the starting stage was just ugly.

The starting stage is pretty ugly. I agree. Its more atmospheric after you arrive on the island :)

Im currently playing it and im having fun with it. Its definitely more fun once you beat the starting stage.

So happy for Team Ninja. NiOh is an amazing game. So hyped to play NiOh2 and the new IP they want to create for PS5.

Look at that. No complaining about lower than expectation sales targets and even getting a sequel. Makes you wonder what's going on with some of the other guys
