NieR Automata was an experience that I could not simply put into words. I could definitely say that it is one of the best games that I have ever played and I would highly recommend this title.



Gameplay


The gameplay was amazing and it's mostly action driven with rpg elements. The game also had a set of minigames which provides a good variation. I also really liked the skill customization for the pods. The movements at attacks are also smooth and visually stunning. One thing that I could say is that they could've added more customization options to the characters' clothing.



The game also gave an option for the player to get involved with the game (won't explain further as I don't want to spoil other people's experience)



Story


The story was well written and dives really deep into the core theme of the game. The game has a way of getting you sucked in into the story. After playing the game, I was left thinking about the themes that NieR: Automata has presented.

The combat mechanics click after hurdling a low learning curve, and the end result is a skillful dance where balletic dodges complement wushu-inspired aggression. Moreover, this multi-ending trip is generously peppered with surprises and revelations, as well as easter eggs that call back to the first game and the Drakengard series from which Nier spun off. It's a meaty, often exhilarating trek that showcases Platinum Games' and Yoko Taro's unique blend of genius.

And what a game NieR: Automata is. This is one of the best single-player RPGs to ever embrace PC, delivering a long-lasting adventure that entertains with its exciting gameplay while piercing the senses with the story it has to tell. Arriving just days after its console version, it serves as an example that the PC platform hasn't been forgotten.

NieR: Automata has more creativity and self-awareness in its little finger than most games have for their entire run time. Don’t miss this because it’s sandwiched between other, bigger games.
