Gameplay of Toukiden: the Age of Demons
The game plays like a free map roaming hack and slash game, it focuses a lot on loot, materials, and on equipment, all of which determine your stats and how strong you are along with your Mitama, which can give you a special advantage in battle. The game flows smoothly, no lag when play single-player, lag on multi-player depends on other people’s wifi signals. Graphics look good but could be better. You mostly find yourself fighting the same enemies over and over.
Experience of Toukiden: the Age of Demons
I played 11 hrs and 35 mins, I feel that a lot was missed out on this game and could be more than what it is, could have better graphics, not focus on equipment so much and could have gave more variety of enemies.
I give it a 7/1
-Coop and multiplayer
-Same enemies **
-Game focuses on equipment a lot
-Game combat repeats a lot **
“**” is for main concerns of the game that may cause you to play the game longer than you intended to or something people might not like.
“^^” is for great features of the game.
