I started playing this game with my Potato laptop during the time it was launched. I can say that this game really suffers from frame drops that's why I've decided to drop this game. However, since I got a gaming PC. This is one of those games I started playing and invested my emotions in. The first playthrough was not enough to fully experience this game. You have to at least experience all endings in order for you to dive deeper into its lore. This is an all-time masterpiece for me.

Masterpiece.

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.

NieR: Automata is challenging to review, because there’s only so much I can say without adding a spoiler warning. However, I believe the best way to convey my review is to either spoil everything or force someone to watch me play it, and obviously, I’m not allowed to do either. I’d tell you to expect the unexpected, but NieR: Automata steps outside of its comfort zone too often for you to become comfortable. For a game about questioning your purpose and identity, NieR: Automata seems comfortable in its own skin.

Automata is a remarkable game with an incredible amount of style, personality, and flair. Its tendency to repeat enemies, locations, and bosses can dampen your enjoyment, however, and the PC port isn’t great. Cutscenes are locked to 30fps, which make them look distractingly jerky.
