What they discover will make them question everything they thought they knew The original NieR release has an interesting history. In Japan, there were two versions of the game: NieR Replicant and NieR Gestalt. NieR Replicant focused on Brother Nier and his sister Yonah. In NieR Gestalt, the main character was Father Nier, and Yonah his daughter. Only NieR Gestalt released in the West (under the name NIER) - so excitingly, this will be the first time many people will have played the Replicant version of the game. Expand

    NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139… is a pitch perfect update to one of the greatest stories ever told in the medium. Combat feels fast and fluid, much like players’ tears once they finish the game. The new content feels natural, magic is more useful than ever, and the reprised music and voice over bring the world to life.

    It's a testament to how special NieR is for it to have endured solely in the hearts and minds of its most dedicated fans for a decade, only to explode into a phenomenon that has kept the video game community talking and debating over it long after the credits have rolled. The rough edges of the original release are still present in NieR Replicant, but it's clear that this game and the series as a whole will no longer just be another faded memory.

    Blemishes aside, it’s hard to see NieR Replicant ver. 1.22 as anything other than a masterpiece. Beautiful and tragic in equal measures, it’s a feast for the senses, a true epic, and an utterly unforgettable experience.

    The rough edges have been sanded down. This JRPG attracted a cult following, and thanks to Toylogic’s upgrade it’s now easy to see why for yourself. [Issue#1, p.84]

    While the backtracking remains, it feels much less painful this time around thanks to it being part of a game with smooth performance that’s ultimately much more fun to actually play. The game is considerably improved as a result, and much of what made the original quietly special can now shine far more brightly. It might not be perfect, but within this slightly flawed framework beats the heart of an absolute masterpiece. Those who fell in love with Nier through Automata should go into this with a clear expectation that this is not that game – but if they do, they’ll find much to love.

    Taro’s approach is of a restless rarity; he swaps genres as though trying to scratch an itch.

    Fantastic game.

    If you are coming from Nier Automata then you need to temper expectations as this is a slightly different game (also being a 10 year old ps3 game upgrade). There are some annoyances that players might find with the backtracking/side quests, however, don't let this put you off this wonderful game.

    The Story is really engaging and emotional. There are additional scenes added into the upgrade which really add to the story, as well as additional playable content and ending.

    The Graphics are a nice update from the original.

    The Music is phenomenal! They have remastered and enhanced the music to make it feel more orchestral and it really works! This has to be with Automata the best music in a video game if not outside of video games. Kudos to everyone involved in creating the music as it truly is masterful.

    All in all, it is a fantastic experience and it is worth experiencing for yourself!

Don’t let thePlayed Nier: Automata in 2017 and it became one of my favorite games ever. New to this game, and it is just as masterful. Don’t let the grindiness of the side quests and weapon upgrading deter you, as it isn’t all that necessary to get the full experience in the first place. This is a unique, fascinating, incredible, and heartbreaking experience. Expand

All they did was change the father character to the kid from the Nier automata... and kept everything from the original game the same. Completely screwing people over who paid good money for something that they where so lazy to just change a character and resale the original game.. such BS... Expand
