Nioh 2 vs Jedi Fallen Order – The Definitive Comparison

Nioh 2 vs Jedi Fallen Order - The Definitive Comparison

Hi guys! Today I will talk about Nioh 2 and 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.


Between these two games, I have to say that the story of Jedi Fallen Order is far more intriguing and entertaining to see how it progresses as you play. The story of Nioh 2 is ok for what it is but it is nothing special. Nioh 2’s story has some good moments but overall it’s pretty forgettable.

If you are someone that cares a lot about the storyline then I recommend Jedi Fallen Order and it’s not even a close call.


There are differences in the way you approach combat between these two games. In Jedi Fallen Order you have only one weapon the lightsaber but you can also use force abilities(which you unlock playing the game). The combat of Jedi Fallen Order is very similar to Sekiro’s combat. You have to play aggressively and try to parry enemies when you can.

Nioh 2 has more options when it comes to combat. You have 11 different types of weapons available(each of them has its own skill tree) and you can use three different stances with these weapons depending on the situation. You can also use ninja and onmyo skills and transform into a yokai.

If you want the most variety in combat then Nioh 2 is a better choice.

As for the enemies, both games offer different types of enemies for you to face but Nioh 2 has more interesting bosses which are far more entertaining to fight than the bosses in Jedi Fallen Order.

We also have to talk about the difficulty since it’s an important factor to consider in these types of games. Nioh 2 is more challenging and has a steeper learning curve. Nioh 2 also offers a lot more content and replayability since there are a lot of different builds you can try, something that Jedi Fallen Order doesn’t offer to the same extent since you can only use one weapon and there isn’t much else for build options.

Lastly, Nioh 2 offers a co-op mode for up to three players including you, and this is something that a lot of players want in soulslike games.


Both games have amazing graphics and I can’t really say that one game looks better than the other in terms of graphics, but what I can say is that Jedi Fallen Order has better and more beautiful scenery. I know that soulslike games are supposed to be dark and gritty but there are games like Sekiro for example that can be dark but also have beautiful scenery.

One thing that Nioh 2 does better is the customization since it has one of the best character creation systems I have seen. Nioh 2 also has an equipment transmogrification system it offers, meaning that you are able to change the appearance of any armor or weapon you have to the appearance of another weapon or armor you have gotten in the game and keep the item’s stats.

In Jedi Fallen Order you can customize the lightsaber and change the color of your clothes and ship but there isn’t much else you can do.

Final Thoughts

Let me summarize what you should keep from this article.

First, if you care a lot about the story of the games you play then Jedi Fallen Order is the game for you.

Second, the gameplay of Nioh 2 has a lot more complexity. Nioh 2 also has more replayability and is more challenging.

Finally, both games have amazing graphics but Jedi Fallen Order has better scenery. As for the customization, Nioh 2 is on another level with the most customization options I have seen in a soulslike game.

I personally recommend Nioh 2 but Jedi Fallen Order is a very good game as well. If you choose Jedi Fallen Order I recommend you wait for a sale.

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