This Is Not A Review: Nioh DLC

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Nioh’s first two DLC packs, developed and published by Tecmo Koei.

Sharp As Hell

HIGH Killing a guard by recalling my sword in mid-air.

LOW Failing to see a ceiling I could grapple for way, way too long.

WTF No checkpoints in the final level?


Crossout Review

Post-Apocalyptic Cash Flow

HIGH The car-crafting is robust and wildly entertaining.

LOW It takes way too long to earn parts and make progress.

WTF The default controls are unbelievably awful. Change them ASAP.
