I have to admit I had no idea what to expect going in, maybe a JRPG type thing (not a genre I tend to play). From a gameplay perspective it's a highly enjoyable hack and slash game with a fascinating upgrade mechanic, good battles and beautiful and varied environments. Nier: Automata really shines when it comes to the story though, I found it quite a powerful experience with characters more complex than almost any title I've played since Soul Reaver probably. The music and sound play in beautifully to this as well. It's not without it's problems and I can totally understand people who didn't get in to it, for whatever reason it spoke to me though. It also knocked Legacy of Kain: Defiance off top spot for favourite game of all time, so there's that.
Certainly what many want today, in addition to a rich story, entertaining gameplay and good characterization, is a good graphic and visual design, along with some beautiful music pieces. What may Automata be a Master in. Many were concerned about the uniformity of its world, which should not be worried anymore, we are faced with several different areas, including urban ruins, massive forests, or a great desert, each with a super-cute and elaborate piece that take you to the heart of this world and brings to you a strange peace that you will find very unlikely among today's titles. After little success of the previous version, many did not have much hope for the new version, and even those optimistic about Automata did not expect anything big on the genre of action, but after the official release, it proved to everyone that NieR: Automata was not only a superb game, full of rich meanings and a relatively high depth, has also become one of the rare and generous experiences of the 8th generation. Live and dynamic gameplay, along with an emotional narrative and a range of graphic and audio beauty, will give you an unforgettable experience.
Nier: Automata In a word, is a fantastic title, just enough to experience it for several hours to immerse yourself in a gloomy world and its dark and bright story, and it's always recorded in your mind. It is true that at this moment, there are some powerful titles like Horizon and Gustav Rikan and ... for experiencing the New Year's Eve of 1396, but do not think that the value of the Nier: Automata experience is anything less than the other titles, and this title can also be the audience. Specifies itself to the pinnacle of pleasure expected by a computer game. NieR: Automata is a special, valuable and admirable title that its creators have gained a new reputation for the NieR series in the gaming industry, making it a great name.
