by Dismissive on Steam
Toukiden 2 is, at it's core, a Monster-Hunter like game with it's own twist
TL;DR - Monster Hunter except more Japanese.
Important to note: This is a PORT, and not much beyond that. Some people have had issues, but I have not. There's not much added onto this port, but it definitely functions.
More seriously, This game differs from its obvious inspiration through its faster paced, more hetic action and stylized combat, where you'll often see your character taking to the skies for extended periods of time.
This being said, it also shares the Monster Hunter formula of killing ♥♥♥♥ and wearing its carcass so other stuff has a harder time killing you, so you can kill them and wear THEIR carcass. Gathering up materials is massively less tedious as compared to Monster Hunter, so there's a plus.
However, there's something this game doesn't share with Monster Hunter; it's difficulty. If you came expecting a game to kick you in the sternum so hard your ribcage and pelvis switch places, this isn't the game. The CLOSEST you'll get to anything mirroring the difficulity of even the latest Monster Hunter game doesn't rear its head until VERY late in the online portion of the game.
But that doesn't mean there's no fun to be had. This game has it's fair share of content, and provides interesting theory crafting through it's use of Ability granting, skill-boosting spirits called Mitama which you affix to your person. Explaining them would take too long for the sake of this review, honestly.
Overall a fun experience (bring friends) and a nice little story that's a bit more fleshed out than Monster Hunter's "x monster is causing y problem, go kill, hunt-man."

WARNING: THIS GAME DOES NOT HAVE A KEYBOARD AND MOUSE SUPPORT. Refer this guide if you want to play with mouse and keyboard https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=889963575
Credit to my good friend Kei for taking his time making this wonderful emulator.
Toukiden 2 plays out like a monster hunter game with 11 types on weapon to choose from starting with the sword, dual knives, spear, gauntlets, chain and sickle, bow, naginata, rifle, sword and shield and the chain whip. Gameplay is pretty good and the story is not bad. You have somewhat of an open world type of gameplay here but on Multiplayer it uses a lobby system like Monster Hunter.
In summary, hey that's pretty good~~ My only problem is that it does not have a keyboard and mouse support...dafuq
Should you get this? Yes but not on full price and oh lord just stop with this DLC stuff mannn T_T. (Or you could wait for MH : World >:) )

Before you buy this game, please note that the game is suited more for controllers.
Just an issue I want to say before my actual review...
At the start of the game, you may run into lag issues. If so, go to your graphics card control panel, Nvidia Control Panel,etc. Select manage 3D settings, click on Program Settings (The one next to Global Settings) , click on add, browse for toukiden_2en.exe under program files(x86)/steam/steamapps/common/toukiden2 (That's for my case). Once you selected the file, head on down to 2. Select the prefered graphics processor for the game and change the setting to High performance NVIDIA processor. You should be running smoothly after this. If there is still lag, head on down to the game's properties in your steam library and disable steam overlay.
My opinion: This game reminds me more of God eater (maybe because of the demon hand and hunting down oni?) but as an open world type.There is so much to do and I really like the usage of the mitamas. You can choose what sort of build or style you're going for and need not be aligned to just one trait.The only thing that really bugs me about this game is the camera.Anyways,it is a good port from the PS4 (1080p and 60fps) and is definitely worth picking up if you love Monster hunter,God Eater or any other JRPG games.
Thanks for reading this review! And thumbs up if it was helpful to you!

Is a huge improvement to toukiden kiwami.
i saw lots of bad reviews turn up, and was worried that he port was the same as the first game.
30 fps, crashes, lag etc. (to i still enjoyed the first one allot)
Now is it better?
yes, the port runs great at 60 fps. Combat feels improved. its Toukiden but openworld.
Art style is great.
Characters (so far) are fun.
Story (so far) is kind of the same.
Gameplay, well its what makes these types of games amazing. its even better since its 60 fps.
Its a great game if you enjoy openworld type rpg's or like Hunter games.
its a dam good mix. And i do hope they will keep making the next entry like this.
improve uppon the things they did now.
So whats bad?
No mouse support. But thats about it actually...
i play these types of games with a controller. Always have, always will.
Its refreshing to see that koei tried something new with one of there IP's.
and i encourage them to do so more and more.
The more they experement, the more of these types of new mix of games we will get.
Pc gaming is changing in a good way. More and more niche titles appear.
More and more console only games come to pc step by step.
I for such support this.
Toukiden 2 is a great new entry in the hunting genre as in its franchise.
Enjoy the game.
s the port?A: For the reco host everyth10Pros: +Solet ful Soundtrack+d 60 fraraphon=Optany of the ns, ng in my opinion is poor and that damages the overall plot.
by Heaveness on Steam
I wanted to play a good amount of hours into this game first before doing a review on it. Let me say this first, I played the first Toukiden a lot on my Vita so I already have a general idea of what I am getting into.
Q: How is the port?
A: For the most part, the port is far better than the Toukiden Kiwami port. 1080p and 30/60 FPS lock is a better improvement than the previous game's options. This is a PS4 port if you are wondering so the graphics are decent but they get the job done. I only noticed a few really ugly textures. The biggest downside to this port is the completely lousy keyboard controls. I have an xbox controller so I don't have this problem but I tried keyboard to test. It is absolutely impossible to play because the keybinds are all over the place and you can't change the controls to certain keys like ENTER. Koei has a track record for putting out awful PC controls. They definitely need to fix or get better at this, no exception even if this was ported from console.
Q: Do I recommend or not?
A: I highly recommend this game if you love Monster Hunter and JRPG. This games has Open world for single player and a lobby system for multiplayer. What I don't highly recommend you play this if you dont like the genre and you don't have a controller.
Q: What improved?
A: Almost everything has been improved from the first game except maybe the overall story pacing. The characters are distinct and quite memorable but I found the story pacing all over the place. Sometimes moves along too fast or too slow and sometimes too convenient or resolved too fast. Otherwise the gameplay has been improved with two new weapons. I love the Demon Arm addition and the open world helps give more lore to the world that the previous game lacked.
Overall score: 8/10
+Solid and fun combat
+Easy to get into but hard to master
+Great Japanese Voice Acting
+solid 60 frames, Have not experienced any slowdowns
=Not bad character creation
=Option settings are a bit lacking
=many of the missions on multiplayer are not open world and are still instance based which is not a big problem but a missed opportunity.
-Lousy and confusing Keyboard controls (plus no mouse support)
-A couple of bugs, glitches, and a few crashed
-The story pacing in my opinion is poor and that damages the overall plot.

by formerly on Steam
Let's get to the short answer to the question "should I buy Toukiden 2?"
If you're a fan of monster hunter games then it's a good match. If you're just curious about it, you'd better think twice.
It's almost impossible to describe this game without mentioning Monster Hunter, but you should not go in expecting a similar experience. Here are a bunch of bullet point considerations in no particular order:
-The game community is tiny and therefore the amount of data available is miniscule, even compared to God Eater. If you can't make your way around Japanese websites, you're going to have a hard time figuring out how gear and weapons work.
-The game has a story campaign that is actually quite decent, and you unlock a large number of important perks by completing it. The characters are generally quite likable despite each individual character having short screen time, and the plot may not be a work of art but it make the world work.
-The endgame has a boss-rush system instead of a "super-strong-monster-kills-you-in-two-hits" system. Personally, the apex system in monster hunter killed my motivation. The ruins boss rush in this game is more fun, because you have to ration your resources over the course of multiple monster kills, and optimizing damage with different weapons and roles can really come together for a satisfying experience.
-The mitama system scratches a particular itch many gamers (including myself) may have: the exploration of build possibilities. Depending on what weapon you choose, you'll have a lot of satisfying moments where you find interesting synergies between the equippable mitama, and most of the time you'll be able to come up with interesting and unique builds that are still viable. In many other games, going with a sub-optimal build might invite mockery from other players, but in this game, you can make most builds work.
-The difficulty is lower when compared with Monster Hunter. That's not to say that this game is easy, but my multiplayer experience had a lot fewer quest failures than when I played Monster Hunter.
-The graphics are nice, but still lacking, especially compared to current-generation games. This is a vita port, and despite being a very stable one, it is still disappointing that the resources were not spent to make the game look particularly nice.
-The armor selection is somewhat lacking. This is primarily in comparison to Monster Hunter, which had a noticeably larger variety of armors. However, you are free to mix and match armors for whatever fashion you pursue, because there are no skills attached to armor in this game. This leads me to believe that you are meant to choose your armors for the sake of looks, which also makes me confused because you cannot dye armors at all.
Final note: The monster hunting genre is experiencing a serious drought right now, and Capcom does not want to spend resources on their product, and the next God Eater game is probably not happening too soon. This game will sate your thirst if you're hungry for that kind of experience. However, this game does not stand well next to current generation titles, and I only feel so positively about it because the competition is just so scarce. The game also feels slightly incomplete, when considering the amount of actual content in the game.
I bought this game at full price and played it for a month with my friends, so I do not regret this purchase. However, I am reluctant to invest any more money into this game or its DLC, because it could be so much more than it is, if only the competition in this genre were a little more fierce.

by UnhappyLawbro on Steam
TL;DR: Wait for the expansion that will actually be a complete game rather than buying this half-completed budget game that is priced as an AAA game.
Toukiden 2 improved on the predecessors (Toukiden and Toukiden Kiwami) in several ways by adding many cool features and mechanisms, such as the open-world map, the oni hand, and several new styles of mitamas. However, Koei Tecmo clearly intends to charge you the price of two AAA game (120$) for 1 complete budget game. Here's why.
Toukiden 2’s gameplay is fun, I won’t deny that. But there is no doubt that it’s a budget game, as pretty much everything except the few new weapons and mechanisms are old and recycled stuffs from the previous games. The graphics, animations, and overall quality are all that of a budget game. There is nothing wrong with this per se, even if it charges you the same price as The Witcher 3, as long as Toukiden 2 is actually a complete game which I would recommend even at 60$. So what's making me unrecommend this one is purely out of morality since KT is completely without morals as you don't even get a complete game for 60$.
Toukiden 2 has far less contents than its predecessor, Toukiden Kiwami, despite the fact people would generally expect each new installment to add upon the predecessors in a game like this. For example, if the previous game had 20 bosses, you would expect more in this new one right? Well, tough luck, we have the exact same number of boss monsters (20) as Kiwami despite Koei has added a few new monsters to Toukiden 2. So how is this possible??
Koei intentionally cut a dozen old monsters from previous games when the number of boss variety is already pathetic in this game to begin with (forcing you to fight the same monsters over and over to progress through the game as a result). Some old bosses are shamelessly sold as 5$ DLCs (imagine if Tigrex is sold as a DLC in a MH game), and keeping away a few others -some of them very iconic (like Kiwami’s poster-monster, the twin-tail wolf that’s extremely fun to fight) – for the inevitable expansion that Koei will once again charge you full price for. There is absolutely no doubt that Koei intends to do this, since all weapons and equipment are purposefully kept weak, with their rank maxed out at 6, whereas the predecessor ones went up to rank 9. A big portion of the open world map is also unused, presumably kept for the expansion. The missions are also limited compared to Kiwami, with 7 phases offline and 12 online, whereas Kiwami had 12 and 19 or 20 respectively.
So basically to get the full game, you will need to spend 120$ plus whatever you decide to spend on the numerous DLCs featuring purposefully-cut contents from old games rather than newly designed ones. If you are really interested in this game, take my advice and wait for the release of Toukiden 2 Kiwami.
Finally, the online is already pretty much dead given than only 300 players are actively playing it (out of a total of 20k players, which is beyond pathetic). You don't care? Well you should even if you plan on soloing the entire game. The fact that Koei doesn't care about getting a lot of sales, has no intention whatsoever to expand their player base and attract new comers with good business practices, and is instead content with the ability to grab some quick cash off the existing tiny niche of players, means that they don't care about you as a customer. So don’t expect ANY technical support or having your complaints heard. With big greedy companies such as EA and Ubisoft, at least they still care about money and players' protests can often have some effect. But when a dev is so lazy and doesn't give a damn about making a complete and quality product, and is only interested in making quick profits, there is NOTHING players can do to make things right. Shortsightedness is worse than pure greed, and Koei Tecmo possesses BOTH traits.
Last words on the port, the PC port also lacks basic features you would expect from a game priced as an “AAA” with ZERO mouse support, atrocious keyboard controls (a controller is an absolute MUST), and no resolution support above 1080P and 60FPS.

So playing this, game is pretty solid for a port. Granted lack of mouse use, most of the negative reviews are solely just that.
Feels natural on a controller
No fps issues
No glitch issues
Overall a solid game/port and look forward to hunting with others.

-No English dub
-CPU Party are too Overpower
-Open world is only available in single-player
-Combat still fells dull.
-Graphics fail to impress Even On High End PC
-Repetitive mission structure.
-Lobbies could do with a few tweaks.
-Low difficulty, even against powerful Oni.(Not as Challenging as MH game)
-K/M still have some problem(i play this on steam controller)
Toukiden 2 is a Fun Game.Still, if you’re a combat junkie or MH veteran, you’ll enjoy the game, and between the many weapon types, new Demon Hand capability, and return of Mitama spells and buffs, you’re unlikely to get bored even if the level of complexity doesn’t exactly match up with what you seek.The Game itself packed with so much content that you can enjoy by yourself or with four other friends. The Crafting System is easy to understand and simple enough for anyone to get into and taking down a giant Oni can be incredibly satisfying.Open world doesn't feel bad, although it isn't something you will remember for long. There's still a lack of dynamism in combat, that are almost identical to the earlier entries in the franchise, While it may not go far enough to vastly improve on its previous entry, this series continues to offer plenty of appeal for someone like me who could not get into Monster Hunter due to how it skimps on the story. Toukiden 2 is a great option for those looking to get into this type of genre. It doesn't even feel as much of a chore this time to take down an Oni. And really, considering Monster Hunter Is only available for Nintendo Platform. It's certainly worth a look for that alone.
Monster Hunter Genre Game That Are Quite Similar On Pc
-GOD EATER RAGE BURST+RESSURECTION
-TOUKIDEN KIWAMI(although still have problem on pc)
Verdict:3/5 Fun game but combat and crafting system still need some work. Same goes with the powerful CPU party member that need some tweeking otherwise i felt like i am playing a dumb down version of Monster Hunter genre game.
it is certainly a great port but if you seek hardcore felling,you certainly won't find it here on PC.
NOTE:My 2nd time buying this game since i have already play the japanese versionon ps4 last year.Same Game, Same Graphics good thing for PC version is Free DLC and that is all about it :)

by Physh on Steam
Long story short, the bugs and tedious nature of parts of the game are more than thoroughly mitigated by having one of the best character building systems I've ever played. Monster hunter with flashier combat and a magical flair.
Pros: Everyone else can talk about everything else, the biggest reason I'd reccomend this game is the character building.
You equip mitama (spirits of dead heroes) to one of three slots: weapon, defense, and demon hand. There are roughly 10 types, and the type you equip determines the skills you have in combat. Your weapon determines your basic attack abilities/buffs, your defense gives you a utility/defensive skill to activate, and the demon hand gives you an ultimate of sorts.
So that's about 1000 combinations right there. The real meat of character building in Toukiden 2 is that you pick up to 3 boosts from each mitama you have equipped. These boosts change the way you play significantly. As an example, one of my early builds was an elemental archer that used an ability called homing arrow. It used the SPT (spirit) mitamas primarilly and equipped a handful of buffs to elemental damage, homing arrow damage, and others. Pretty simple.
Now that I have well over 100 mitama's unlocked, I spend most of my time in this game trying to find the most absurd way to kill demons. Poison builds, near-death builds, and a particularly fun one that involves almost completely nullifying the cooldowns of all the casted abilities. If you've liked the character building in games such as Dragon Quest, you'll love the deep multiclass ability.
Cons: This game is buggy. There's no hiding its a port of a game optimized for consoles. I skipped the first game because it was a god-awful port and almost did the same on this one. No support for the more rare screen resolutions, NO MOUSE SUPPORT, and multiplayer bugs out on me a lot and I often have to restart to get the game going.
Let me say one of those again. NO MOUSE SUPPORT. Nada. Do not buy this game if you don't have a gamepad. I use an xbox controller and it works fine, I imagine a steam controller would work too but I haven't tested it out, check other reviews for that.
The fun of this game outweighed the flaws. I love deep character building and this game has one of the better styles of character building I've seen. The DLC missions are a bit pricey but add some new oni and more importantly some missions that are a lot better for farming materials than some of the base games.
Buy it, try it, if you can get it working within the 2 hour trial period then I highly reccomend continuing to play until you've acquired a substantial collection of weapons and mitama to try out.
Toukiden 2 Review - GameSpot
Apr 15, 2017 Toukiden 2 is not totally open world at the start, however. Some locations are locked until later in the story, and some areas are infected by an evil miasma emitted by the Oni. The longer you stay in an afflicted area, the more impure your body becomes. Fail to purify yourself and it's game over.
