    though to give it a try as of the upcoming Nier: Automata, But this game is too boring, you have to read all the conversations EACH AND EVER ONE and press a key to read next and so on, it was so boring and meaningless. Your Avatar moves faster then a car! And during hunting or looting they will continuously bother you with item found and you will have to press a key. OHH......

    Nier won't wow players with its basic mechanics, but in the story it tells, the characters it develops, and the themes present throughout play, it will easily win over anyone seeking something emotionally exploratory and well off the beaten path.
  2. A bizarre mix of influences and a great script still can't save this inventive but flawed role-player.
  3. Nier comes with a bizarre mix of influences and its own accomplishments. Not all of it works, but it's a commendable effort, and a great experience.
