Nioh vs Jedi Fallen Order – The Definitive Comparison

Nioh vs Jedi Fallen Order

Hi guys! Today I will talk about Nioh and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order. I will do a comparison between them and I will let you be the judge of which game is better. First I will talk about the storyline of those 2 games, then I will talk about the difference or similarities in their gameplay, and lastly, I will compare the visuals and tell you my final thoughts. Now let’s begin.


There isn’t really any competition when it comes to which game has the best story. Jedi Fallen Order has a solid story that makes you care for the characters in it and I believe many people want a sequel to this game just to find out what happens next.

Personally I am interested to know what happens next and that’s one of the main reasons I want a sequel.

Nioh on the other hand has a very mediocre story and it doesn’t make you care enough for what is going on. It has some interesting moments because of the historical figures that appear but beyond that it’s forgettable.

I believe they didn’t care much either since the sequel to Nioh has a new protagonist so there is no continuity.

In my opinion if you want a good story I recommend Jedi Fallen Order between these two games.


Nioh and Jedi Fallen Order have a lot of differences when it comes to the combat system.

Jedi Fallen Order has a combat system where you can use 2 weapons, a lightsaber and a dual blade lightsaber and you can also use force powers. It also has skill trees and as you level up you can unlock different force abilities or combat abilities.

In Nioh you can use different kinds of weapons, ninja, and onmyo skills. Nioh also has different attributes that you can put points on to make your character stronger. Another thing that makes Nioh’s combat interesting is the different combat stances you can use.

Each stance has a different moveset and having combat stances adds another layer to the game.

I have said it many times in previous articles but I will say it again. Having fewer weapons to use doesn’t necessarily make the game worse. It can actually improve the experience since the developers can optimize the enemies to fight against your specific weapon and make combat more interesting.

This can’t be done when there is a lot of variety in weapons. Of course, having a lot of variety in weapons has its benefits too since it can give more replayability to the game.

So in the end it all comes down to what you prefer.

As for the enemies, Nioh wins here since it has a lot more variety in enemies. In Jedi Fallen Order there is less variety in enemies but fights are a little more entertaining.

When it comes to bosses Nioh wins too since it has more and they are more fun to fight against.

Lastly let’s talk about replayability, difficulty, and content. Nioh has a lot more replayability since it has more weapons to choose from and you can also make a lot of builds choosing different skill combinations.

As for the difficulty, Nioh is a lot more challenging. Finally, it has a lot more content so you get more for what you are paying.


Visuals are another area that Jedi Fallen Order is superior, and there isn’t even a debate on that. On some games, the 2-year difference in the release isn’t that obvious when it comes to their graphics but between these two games, there is a big difference.

It’s not only that the graphics of Jedi Fallen Order are superior, but it also has better scenery with areas that look absolutely amazing.

There is one thing though that Nioh wins over Jedi Fallen Order and that is customization. Nioh has an equipment transmogrification system and for those of you that don’t know what this is, it basically means that you are able to change the appearance of all your equipment and keep the stats.

Nioh has a lot of amazing outfits for you to wear and this system allows you to look the way you want without having to sacrifice stats.

Final Thoughts

I will summarize what you should remember from this comparison.

First, when it comes to story Jedi Fallen Order wins easy. Second, Nioh wins when it comes to gameplay since it has more replayability, more challenging, and interesting bosses, and a lot more content.

Lastly when it comes to visuals. Jedi Fallen Order has a lot better graphics but it doesn’t have as good customization system as Nioh since Nioh has a transmogrification system.

Finally, whatever you choose I believe you will have a good experience, the thing I should mention though is that I recommend you wait for a sale since I don’t believe either game is worth the full price.

This is it, guys. I hope you found the article informative and that I helped you decide which is the best game for you.
