Rise of the Rōnin Video Review – The Art of Combat

Rise of the Rōnin Video Review

Team Ninja is renowned for their tough but rewarding combat system. While their previous outings have included linear levels and supernatural elements, Rise of the Rōnin, removes the shackles for an open-world experience grounded in reality. Will this shift in direction help this samurai adventure to slice its own path?

Set in a huge open world, you visit three regions in the late Edo period of Japan. Your adventure takes you to a range of wonderful places where you will meet a diverse cast of characters. You will need to work with these in order to win their favor so that they can support you in your goal of bringing peace to Japan. Will Team Ninja’s decision to take their iconic combat system to the open world be a bold step forward or a risky venture? Check out our video review below to find out!

Rise of the Rōnin is out now exclusively for PlayStation 5 and you can read our full review here. Would you like to see Team Ninja revisit a previous release or work on another new IP?
