Very Bad 30%

Re-fund the game due to its safe system, where you have to search for some hub to save your progress otherwise will have to repeat large section again and again, very old game-mechanic. Generally most of gamers no have time to repeat long hrs of same part of game-play, Devs can make it as an optn for those how love such kind of Non-Auto-Save games, From other hand there were not so much to draw my mind off that point; - Graphics not outstand...

Good 90%

One of the best Games I ever played. Deep story, with catching characterdevelopment from different views. Giving the player just enough understanding at a point to keep a high tension throughout the whole game. The soundtrack delivers a great atmosphere. (Keeping it short, to spoil nothig) The only "downside" for me, is, that the difficulty settings are kinda strange. In the beginning the Game has a good difficulty on "Normal" setting. But allw...

Great 100%

"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him". - Was there ever a game that made you question your own place in the world? That made you wonder if it all truly mattered? - Was there ever a game that made you que... Read More

Positive points
The narrative, writing, characters, art style, soundtrack (!!!), combat and all the effin' existential crises.
Negative points
A good portion of the side quests follow the "fetch quest" formula. This is probably the only major gripe I have with it. I could nitpick it, but you can do that to anything and I believe that nitpick... Read More

Fair 70%

It's a great game. Has very polished gameplay and beautiful music. The story was OK, but to be honest it wasn't spectacular by any means, it even felt cheap when it came to character development in the first part. Later it got some momentum, but not enough to carry its own weight. And a lot of plot points along the way seem unnecesarily obfuscated or even abandoned. Kind of like the writers could not decide what to focus on, forcing the story to ... Read More

Positive points
Music.
Gameplay.
Negative points
The "B" route feels more like a burden and unnecessary gameplay extension than artistic storytelling mechanic.

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

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.
