| My thoughts about Nioh
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 ^^
