I got curious upon hearing this game saying that this is a prequel to Nier Automata. I haven't played the classic version on PS3 but did some research and I was amazed how they were able to rack up the graphics of this game, to be honest. It is so much better in many aspects. The controls are a bit sluggish to compare to the fluidity of Nier Automata's combat system. Although let's talk about this game's number 1 strength. Rich Story and heavy emotions. It tackled a lot of deep stories which I think was able to conclude properly. Honestly, the first playthrough was awesome. I have invested so much. And then the second and third playthrough was quite okay. But then on my last playthroughs, it started to feel like this is becoming a chore rather than aiming for fun and excitement. Though the game is still fun, it's just that for me unlocking the other endings via playthrough is a waste of time for me. No offense. I still love and like this game. The repetitiveness and lack of character development on some sides became its downfall.

To sum it all up, this is by far the best version you will get of the 2010 classic, and if you are a fan of Automata and wish to see how it started, this is a must buy and I thoroughly recommend a full playthrough. For those dipping their toes into the series, I would say give the first playthrough a shot and see if it grabs you, as it still has enough enjoyable factors without subsequent playthroughs to be a great JRPG on its own right, kinks and all.

The NieR Replicant remake is an excellent action RPG with one of the best game stories ever and updated combat, but it's not without a few problems.

For better of for worse, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 is pretty much what it was so many years ago.  If you didn’t like the original release, then this won’t do much to convince you otherwise, and if you are coming from Automata, this is a weaker game in a lot of ways. NieR demands patience from its players and rewards it with a phenomenal story. With this cult classic making a return maybe Drakengard could see the same treatment?
