Alright 80%

Nier: Automata isn't a perfect 10, I was so ready to get my mind blown away by this game because I've heard and read so many good things about it..... It's a bit of a let down for me, there is no explanation on a lot of the game mechanics, lots of pointless wandering in an open world, you have to do several play throughs to get to the real ending, but in the end it does still manage to tells a compelling, emotional,layered story with many twists...

Without a joke worst game I've ever played. I love games with awesome story, deep characters, multiple story lines. I was so thrilled to play Nier: Automata, because every game review recall those. But when I started game, I was shocked. Never seen as much awfull UI as Automata has any game lately. Game menu is worse than being hit by a brick in a head. There is no game settings aswell. It's just "low" "medium" and "high". And guess what, it d... Read More

Great 100%

Literally the BOMB of the year !
The system, the fights, the graphism and this STORY ! All of this is awesome.
Platinum Games have made a pearl and the point of Nier Automata is incredible ! Lot of emotion and absolutely all in the game was worked and none of detail was left aside.

Having read the reviews about a lack of autosave, I dived in thinking I could just reach save points and progress that way. I was 20 minutes in and had found no save point. I was fighting huge enemies and regularly losing health because I didn't know any of the mechanics as there was no training. I promised myself that if I died and had to start from the beginning, I would refund the game. So here I am, after 30 minutes of gameplay I'm afraid I ... Read More

Storyline

"The distant future…

Invaders from another world attack without warning, unleashing a new type of threat: weapons known as “machine lifeforms.” In the face of this insurmountable threat, mankind is driven from Earth and takes refuge on the Moon.

The Council of Humanity organizes a resistance of android soldiers in an effort to take back their planet. To break the deadlock, the Resistance deploys a new unit of android infantry: YoRHa .

In the forsaken wasteland below, the war between the machines and the androids rages on. A war that is soon to unveil the long-forgotten truth of this world..."


Nier: Automata shares the post-apocalyptic setting of the original Nier, taking place after the game's fourth ending. Characters such as Emil and minor characters from Nier will appear, while other characters from both Nier and Drakengard 3 are mentioned. Aside from this, the two games share no direct story connections. It will also retain the dark atmosphere and branching story paths common to the Drakengard series as a whole.
