    NieR Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition was my first foray into the NieR series and I personally loved it. I know some people soured on having to basically replay the same game again just to get to the third run that opened up more of the story, but the first two routes don’t take incredibly long to play through if you don’t do any side missions. Then again doing the side missions just made the game more fun for me and I kept forgetting that I needed to finish the main story to write this review. If you’re into hack-and-slash RPGs and don’t mind having to play through the game three times to experience the full story, give this game a shot.

    I’m shocked with the scope, the size, and the feel to a game that is now two years old (as of March 7th). It is still very much a unique title that offers up about everything you ever dreamed in one single experience. The fact that you’ll want to replay it speaks volumes about what is in store for you. There aren’t a lot of games that make you want to revisit them so quickly, but NieR: Automata is definitely one of them.

    While it’s a bit disappointing that the bulk of the package is just a compilation of already released content, it’s still easy to recommend NieR: Autoamta Game of the YoRHa Edition to anyone that hasn’t already played the best game of 2017.

    A fantastic mix of explosive action and thoughtful storytelling, that results in one of the most unpredictable and ambitious action role-players of the modern era.

    It’s no question that NieR: Automata is one of the most memorable video game experiences in this current generation, and the NieR:Automata: Game of the YoRHa Edition is a convenient and cost-effective entry point for newcomers.

    Nier: Automata GOTY is the last and best way to play and live one of the most important games over the last ten years.

    If you haven’t pulled the trigger on NieR: Automata yet, this is the time! As a brand new player, I feel ridiculous for waiting this long to dive in. Dearth of new content or not, the Game of The YoRHa edition is a terrific good time.

    Best Game in Looooong Time Si es perfecto que mas puedo decir la musica la accion el hecho que lo pase bien y no me aburi como con los otrosBest Game in Looooong Time Si es perfecto que mas puedo decir la musica la accion el hecho que lo pase bien y no me aburi como con los otros AAA que salen como productos sin almas. Este juego es una experiencia interactiva hasta el ultimo de los creditos. mexclando realidad con virtualidad en una forma que pocos ejemplares pueden hacerlo. le doy 10 no por fanatismo sino porque la experiencia fue de 10 y al final todo lo que buscamos en un juego es esa cosa que nos dice me alegro de haberlo terminado y no de por fin lo termine.

    Gameplay wise, there is nothing special about Nier: Automata. If you like Platinum games, you can enjoy the combat, though it is not as goodGameplay wise, there is nothing special about Nier: Automata. If you like Platinum games, you can enjoy the combat, though it is not as good as the Bayonetta series, it's not as bad as the Korra game.

    Where the game truely shines is its narrative. The game uses the works of philosophers like Nietzsche to tell the story and serve as a backbone for its core themes. While they don't provide any interesting commentary on the works they reference, very few games even attempts on tackling this subject matter and they actually do some quite clever things to its narrative and gameplay to invoke the works they reference. The game ends with the most interesting moral choice in video games ever. I won't spoil it here, but I will say that unlike other games where a moral choice usually means you see one of two endings, this is a moral choice with actual consequence on the player making the choice.

    One main gripe I have with the game is the character design of 2B. I'm no prude, but I was disappointed that with everything else about the narrative of the game being so well thought out and deliberate, that the only justification the creator had for 2B's sexualised design was that he likes looking at hot girls. This is a rather shallow design choice as it sacrifices both realism and characterisation.

    On the realism front, there is no reason to send a battle android into battle in a dress. It offers no protection and later on you see that they could have put her in amour the entire time, they just chose not to.

    On the characterisation front, 2B is portrayed as a cold, aloof character that is actually emotionally vulnerable and caring on the inside. Again this is not reflected in her character design as nothing about a skirt suggests cold on the outside, caring on the inside. Again a suit of amour would have fit in better as it alludes to the fact that her cold exterior is just a defence mechanism to help her not get too close to those she cares about, but if you get past her emotional amour, she is vulnerable.

    With everything else being so well thought out, the decision to put 2B in a skimpy outfit seems like a missed opportunity.

So i really don't understand why you give to this game 8-9 score. That score should be on Nier:Automata but not Yorha edition. Expand

    OMG LMAO
    It's such a stupid way to get money from poor players. Completely agree with VioleGreis. The most helpful review ever!
