Nier: Automata Review | The Masterpiece You (Probably) Won't Play

Nier: Automata- I can't recall ever being so captivated by a game. At least not in the last decade. I think maybe I'm going a little crazy. Regardless, I haven't been able to string a single non-Nier related thought together this week as this review has all but consumed me. Even now, I am still deeply unhappy with it as I feel it does not do the game justice. But I know I wouldn't be happy with anything I produce at this point, so my hope is that you enjoy this review more than I did, and if you hadn't thought to purchase and play Nier, that you might revisit that decision.

This cannot continue...

Before You Start Nier Automata

Here's a short list of tips that I wish I knew before I started playing Nier Automata. Leave a comment if you can think of any other tips new players should know.


8 things that will make you love the Nier franchise

Nier Automata is planned for March 7th in the USA and March 10th in the EU. Nier is not well known among gamers and we want to change that!

Pre-order Automata here:

Nier Automata is perhaps one of the dark horses of the game industry. Perhaps you never heard of Nier. So let us introduce this series to you. Here are 8 things that will make you love Nier and Nier Automata! There will be some story spoilers for the first Nier so consider yourself warned.

Spin-off from Drakengard
Let’s start with a small history lesson, because Nier is actually a spin-off from the Drakengard series… or Drag-on Dragoon, as they call it in Japan. This series consists out of three numbered games. Drakengard 2 is a direct sequel. Drakengard 3 is a prequel that also plays during the same time as the first Drakengard, but uses alternative timelines.

Nier or No Nier
The first game in the series was all about Nier finding a cure against the plague. Nier wanted to heal his dying daughter - or sister, but we will get to that later. You’re fighting these dark spirits in this post apocalyptic world in an effort to reach your goal. Now fast forward a couple of centuries to Nier: Automata. Earth has been invaded by alien machines and the last remaining humans have taken refuge on the moon.

New Game+
Both Nier and Nier Automata have the New Game Plus feature. On a second playthrough of Nier you will suddenly understand the language of the spirits. You learn about their suffering and their motivations. And this will make the player doubt the heroism of Nier. A third playthrough will expand the story even further. Nier Automata also offers the New Game Plus feature, which will unlock new characters and therefore very likely also new stories.

All mixed up
In essence Nier is a third person action role playing game. As things go in RPGs you earn experience points by fighting enemies. You fight using weapons or magic and and you can enhance your weapons with power ups. However, what made the gameplay of the first Nier game very special, was that it used elements from other genres.

Weird in a good way
Nier was received with mixed reviews, but gained a cult following. The game brought up many questions that were never truly answered. The worlds you were thrown into, are extremely diverse. And of course the same can be said about the gameplay. It’s this combination of gameplay mechanics and remarkable design, together with its mysterious story that made Nier so beloved.

Something different
When it comes to gameplay, the first Nier and its sequel are not quite the same. Nier can be considered a deep role playing game in which you need to upgrade your weapons and magic to become stronger in combat. The story is dark and emotional. In Nier Automata there’s a stronger focus on combat and the story is more focused on survival.

To reboot or not to reboot
We want to address one awesome game mechanic for Nier Automata. When you die your Android body stays behind. Your memories are uploaded to a server and booted into a new body. You can then find your old body and salvage hardware from it. Or you can repair it and have it fight alongside you.

Two versions
Did you know the first game in the Nier series came in two versions? In Nier for the Playstation 3 the main character looked younger, while the same character on the Xbox 360 was older. Depending on which version you would play, you would be saving your daughter or your sister. Game studio Cavia and Square Enix did this to appeal to the western market.

"Better than many Final Fantasy games"- 10/10- Nier Automata review (20 minutes spoiler free)

Innovative gameplay, resonating story, shameless upskirts, epic boss battles & a flawless ost soundtrack. This Nier Automata review is not going to hold back on emphasising my strong conviction this is a 10/10 masterpiece. Though it is not a final fantasy I need this one time to have a discussion about NieR: Automata.

As the titles says, first 20 minutes is spoiler free besides a bit of gameplay in the back. None of which are cutscenes or cinematics however. Also a few Nier theme songs are playing which may be considered spoiler. After 20 minutes there will be plot spoiler alert announcement.

NieR:Automata - Advanced Combat Tutorial (Aerial dashing attacks)

If you're still having trouble doing this, a more consistent method for pulling this off is:
- evade
- move forward (after hearing the woosh sound effect)
- press heavy attack

the window between pressing heavy attack and forward motion isn't very large, and it's almost simultaneous.
