There are many gamers who think that Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty feels very similar to Sekiro, but in my experience, I see this game from any angle as a version of Nioh with the context of the Three Kingdoms and the Three Kingdoms. Some gameplay improvements only.
Right from the first moments that you step into the Demo of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty, it feels very familiar, especially for gamers who have spent hundreds of hours playing Nioh like me. From the Main Menu screen to the selection operations in the character creation stage even the game font uses everything very similar to the Japanese context brother. This does not mean that this Demo is bad, but on the contrary, because of inheriting a deep character creation system (some features are locked), you can completely create for yourself a unique character even. Even this character creation tool is powerful enough for you to recreate many of your favorite characters from other game series. After creating the character you can choose for yourself an element, this choice will equip you with a summoned beast, magic. And similar to the demos of other Soul like games, you will choose for yourself a fighting style such as melee, gunship, magic, hiding, …. Personally, I still encourage you to experience melee for the first time to make it easy to get used to, then when the main game is available, you can freely create your own gameplay.
The demo of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty takes place in a mountainous region in the Trieu Kingdom (apparently Team Ninja did a lot of research because in this era people still used to call some regions after the country in which it existed) . Because to avoid spoiling the plot, the game has very few cutscenes or anything referring to the main plot of the game. After a long time wandering in Middle-earth in Elden Ring, when I came to this game, I felt everything more familiar, especially for those who love movies about the period of the Five Kingdoms to the Three Kingdoms (Qin). During the Minh Nguyet, Tam Quoc Chi, ….) with endless mountain ranges and new enemies such as zombies and yellow scarf invaders. There was a time when I thought I was playing Dynasty Warriors so I jumped in and cut it a bit and ended up with a pretty sad ending. But after a while of calming down, I also approached the most exciting part of the game, the battles, whether it was with ordinary enemies or big bosses, they were all wrapped up in three elements: Fast, dangerous and swordplay protein. We still don’t know about the main character’s background, but it must be admitted that he/she has an extremely powerful martial arts body and the ability to master a variety of weapons these days (you’ll see a lot of them). The atmosphere is familiar in the movies, although some are not very close to the time, but they should not be too difficult). Because it is set in the swordplay scene (the first half is closer) the movements of the characters are done quite quickly and definitely show the weight of the attacks (although in some parts, the dance is a bit too much). The character’s melee attacks will be divided into two main types of normal attacks and use soul power to attack. For normal attacks, the character uses the weapon that is equipped to attack the enemy, this in addition to dealing damage also charges energy for the soul force bar. When this bar is full you can use them to create attacks with high damage. Similar to Nioh, you can equip two melee weapons and two gunfire weapons to combine to create combos with extremely high damage. The management of the soul force bar plays an extremely important role because not only can it increase physical damage, but this bar is also used to increase damage to spells belonging to the fifth element that if you use it well. then completing the Demo is much easier. The summoning mechanism of beasts is also back in the Demo, so we have access to Linh Quy, Bach Ho, Chu Tuoc, Thanh Long and Huyen Vu, etc. You can summon them to attack enemies or combine with they unleashed an earth-shattering attack. In general, you only need to master three things: Counterattack (or dodge if you are not familiar), how to manage the soul force and damage of the Combo chains and you will have a great time with this game. . There is another point you need to note that in Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty there is a stat called morale, if the enemy has this number higher than you, you have to be careful because even though they are just normal enemies, they are also very dangerous. will be raised a lot of different stats.
In the Demo of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty we partly witnessed the graphics, sound as well as the design of the game’s screen. Regarding the image, if you don’t want to mention that sometimes the characters have a bit of a stiff movement (the second yellow scarf thief you meet in the demo), the image in the game is done at a very good level enough to keep players a bit. grumpy. The sound, I don’t argue, when the sound of weapons clashing, the sound of the game’s effects all bring a sense of clarity. For the Demo screen, I find the game a bit simple when the hidden areas just need a little attention to find it clean but this is just a Demo so we shouldn’t be too strict. Currently Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty is available on PS and Xbox during this time, please quickly download the game to experience.
