The fact that you're getting downvoted this much shows just how bad the community has gotten since Nioh 1; hell, what drew me into the series, partially, was how friendly the community was back then - even if someone said something unpopular, there was at least some form of civil discussion overall. Now look; someone dares to say they found Nioh 2 to be bad compared to the first game, they get downvoted and mocked. Seriously, these replies are the definition of childish; someone says they don't like something compared to the first game, and they're treated like a mentally dumb child? Seriously guys?
I honestly agree with you, OP; Nioh 2's Yokai Shift honest-to-God feels near-useless compared to the Living Weapon. In 1, LW was a versatile and admittedly cheap, but still really fun super mode that could be used effectively for just about any build. Meanwhile, YS is pretty much useless from my experience; you can't really use it for melee, as it honestly feels really awkward to use, and every YS boils down to "use the same ability on every build, over and over, until the boss falls". Yes, you can make some unique builds for it - March 15 anon made a Critical Health build - but every usage basically translates to the same thing in the end.
