Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty

Critics Consensus (Play It)

Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty may have some flaws – e.g., inconsistent difficulty – but they are negligible. Combat is layered and addicting, the world is filled with interesting characters, and the levels are well-designed. This is a streamlined Nioh with dashes of Sekiro.

Game Info

184 AD, Later Han Dynasty China. The land is overcome by chaos and destruction. The imperial dynasty that prospered for many years is now about to collapse. Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is a dramatic, action-packed story of a nameless militia soldier fighting for survival in a dark fantasy version of the Later Han Dynasty where demons plague the Three Kingdoms. Players fight off deadly creatures and enemy soldiers using swordplay based on the Chinese martial arts, attempting to overcome the odds by awakening the true power from within. Wo Long refers to a crouching dragon, and also refers to a hero or person of greatness who is not yet known. This is the story of officers, who will later become heroes, during their ‘unknown’ period, and also the story of a protagonist’s rise from being a ‘nobody’. From the depths of darkness, a dragon soars.

Technical issues aside, Wo Long is a master of its craft that future soulslikes should study under.

Team Ninja evolves Nioh’s formula in a Three Kingdoms-era action RPG where allies, flags, and stealth make its brutal challenges more manageable than ever.

Jon Bailes (GamesRadar+)

4/5 stars

Wo Long sees Team Ninja build on the core quality of the Nioh games. Its new systems, from the spirit gauge to morale levels within each stage feel well-considered and tightly honed to encourage exploration and bold, expressive fighting styles. Some old habits die hard, especially the tiresome loot gathering, but the game’s core combat and traversal options always shine through.
