    N.E.R.O. could have been an interesting interactive novel, but weak puzzles, limited length and various other shortcomings, prevent this title from fully showing his potential.

    An uneven game of kaleidoscopic highs and somber lows, N.E.R.O. rewards patient exploration, connect-the-dots plot analysis, and an appreciation for nature’s surreal beauty.

    N.E.R.O. has the potential to be very deep if you can connect with it and fully understand it.

    The game was obviously intended for adults with the subject matter but then it doesn’t respect the intellect of the player. If it was an animated picture it would be a visual arts spectacle but sadly it’s a video game.

    N.E.R.O. Nothing Ever Remains Obscure
    A strangely calming adventure.
    It’s so hard to talk about NERO without spoiling it, so I’m not going to go into story details even a little bit. ..
    I will only say this is a story about acceptance…
    If you’re looking for awesome gameplay, don’t look here... this isn’t what Nero is about
    the magic here is in the journey and story telling...
    The atmosphere in this game really is perfect excluding 1 on the 4 chapters...
    This is a quote unquote walking simulator with light puzzle elements thrown in here…
    As you explore the beautiful levels with calming ambience, you’ll run into pieces of pictures and puzzles that completing them will give more insight into the story…
    It’s a real joy exploring these 4 levels so these collectibles do not feel like a chore at all to search for…
    The puzzles in this game are for the most part very simple and involve mainly pressure pads and throwing an orb of blue light to activate a switch… you’ll even get a companion early on to help with a couple puzzles throughout your journey… and a handful of these puzzles can actually be completely skipped… but if you want the most out of this 2 hour game, it’s definitely worth seeking all 29 out…
    I will say there were probably about 4 puzzles that I had to look up a solution to... not because I couldn’t figure it out. .but because I had no idea what the puzzle was asking me to do in the first place…
    which unfortunately does break the immersion the rest of the game did such a great job at placing me into…
    But the story makes it all worth it…
    it’s just as beautiful and mysterious as the rest of the world and even brought a few tears to my eyes..
    NERO may not have the best puzzles... but the puzzles do their job at keeping the pace…
    And if there’s one thing NERO does have, it’s one of the most heartwarming experiences of the year.
    I give NERO Nothing Ever Remains Obscure

    8/10
