Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty reviews have started coming in strongly for: PC Steam, Playstation 5 and XBOX Series X. Steam currently leads the review race at 82, Playstation 5 and XBOX are very close to that with an average of 81. The game was predicted to score about the same as Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy or Dead or Alive 6 with both titles having an average rating of 72 at launch which means that Wo Long is currently performing better than both titles by almost 10%.
Wo Long is slightly lower than Nioh 2 in ratings, but not by much. Nioh 2 averaged a Metacritic score of 85 percent between its various editions. Team NINJA provided me with a review & content creation copy of Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty Digital Deluxe on PC and XBOX and we will give unbiased context and review of the game. From what I have played the score would be a 9/10 at my point and with experience of the system mechanics. Wo Long has a direct advantage over Nioh in terms of spellcasting and parrying. Overall, it's an extremely fluid action title and feels like another stellar Team NINJA franchise.
Player reviews for Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty have also been strong, but there are a few concerns regarding the PC version that should be fixed in an upcoming patch by Team NINJA. The first one is keyboard optimization. Players of the game on PC have found the controls to be infuriating on this platform, even if most third person action players do use a controller. Secondly, the game doesn't always detect 120 FPS. These are examples of things that the player may have no control over at this time.
If players are having problems with performance, here are a few tips that can help you optimize your PC for a better experience. The biggest & best option for a budget build or even a decent gaming PC is to turn off the volumetric clouds in your settings tab. Making this adjustment will save you 20-40 FPS without lowering other more important aspects to Wo Long's graphical capabilities.
Wo Long's Final Demo is actually a poor way to see if your machine can handle the final build as the Final Demo is a MUCH earlier build. The best current way to test the game on your PC is to use the free Game Pass trial if you have one. This is an impractical but practical way of checking and several people that couldn't get the Final Demo to work have confirmed this method does work.
