Nioh 1

Fast-paced and absolutely full of loot, Nioh is for Dark Souls fans who like to agonise over what gear they should equip.

Players are free to shape their character exactly how they want, and thanks to its unique stance system Nioh‘s combat is amazingly deep. Unfortunately it means that those who don’t master its complex mechanics may find themselves struggling when faced with gargantuan bosses. But those who do master Nioh‘s combat will find it to be one of the most rewarding games on PS4.

With its beautiful Japanese scenery and grotesquely demonic enemies, Nioh is one of the best games like Dark Souls currently available on PS4. There’s a sequel coming out sometime in the near future, too, so get it played in preparation.
