    XBox One owners have no excuse to miss out on this game. It is one of the best examples of video games as a medium of entertainment and needs to be played by every person possible. I cannot stress enough how important this game is, or how good it is.

    The story has impact on both a base level and philosophically, and will no doubt leave you with questions to consider for days after you finish if you enjoy that kind of thing. I wish I could have more games like NieR: Automata, but I'll probably be waiting a while — it's only so often a game this excellent comes around.

    Being that the game is unchanged from last year, it’s no surprise that the Become As Gods Edition doesn’t disappoint. If you’re Xbox-only and haven’t given this game a go, there’s no better time than the present.

    The award masterpiece of Platinum Games arrives on Xbox One: the story is captivating, the world is alive and evolving, the combat is engaging and the soundtrack is simply amazing.

    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.

    As good as it was on PS4, but with a bit more content, and it's cheaper. A win-win situation despite its delay.

    Nier: Automata Become As Gods Edition has a very deep and thoughtful story, but it requires a lot of time before you get down to it.

    In a time where aliens invade earth with machine lieforms, the human race hangs by a thread on orbiting "bunkers". There are so many things that this games does perfectly that tons of other games attempted. Lets start with the constant POV changes. One minute you're in the standard 3rd person, next you're playing as a 2D sidescroller, usually finished with a top down sequence. The game blends the POV so well in a way that comes off as refreshing in the gaming world.

    The combat is fluid and satisfying. Every blow to an enemy feels significant and wonderful to do. Nier: Automata in a way reminds me of a faster paced Bloodborne. If you aren't evading enemy attacks you could instantly die to a combo in higher difficulties. (You'll die instantly from one hit on the hardest difficulty regardless). The boss battles always have your adrenaline running which is something I haven't personally felt since Cuphead.

    Story wise, the game is pretty straightforward and makes you question your morals and the cause you're fighting for around halfway through the game. Otherwise, the game is spectacular in every respective way. My only complaint is that there are a few questionable texture pop in times here and there. Nonetheless, Nier: Automata is the perfect game every Xbox player should own.

    Ignorando o fato das texturas estarem bem borradas em alguns locais, posso dizer que em todos os outros pontos o jogo está impecável, como na jogabilidade, trilha sonora, e principalmente sua história e seu universo.
    A definição de arte, uma obra prima!

    Não vejo necessidade em escrever um longo texto analisando uma arte, a nota é apenas um conselho para saber o quanto ela vale para sua vida.

    I see no need to write a long text analyzing an art, the note is just a piece of advice to know how much it is worth in your life.

    The good:
    Excellent graphics, good draw distance, lots of textures, lots of particles. Very good music if you like melancholic music and Japanese vocal themes. A great Japanese. Great customization of passive skills through chips that you find, farm / make or buy. This 2B “the Waifu” of many. It has good jokes and moments of involuntary comedy. Playing with 9S completely changes the gameplay. It has as many endings as letters of the alphabet. Its best playable and visual version is on Xbox One X / Series S / X. It's on Xbox Game Pass.

    The bad:
    Mix of genres (Hack'n Slash, Shot'em Up, Shump Game, Bullet Hell, Brawler, 2D Platform, 3D Platform, 2.5D Platform ...) so many that none of them do it well. To have touches of Hack'n Slash there is no customization of combos, they are already preset. Don't be fooled, this game has 2B but it's more of a game of running errands, dodging lots of red balls, and making deliveries with touches of fan service. Many many moments of other people's pain. Very Japanese jokes that get lost in translation. The fishing game. There are areas such as the command center or the dressing rooms where textures and effects disappear in a brutal way. Its Pan-tone (color palette, range of colors) is very opaque, throwing more brown, brown, black and gold, mostly except in the heads where it changes to black and white that can take you out of the experience for totally white objects that seem very false. Only three types of weapons to make combinations (spear, sword / katana and great-sword).

    Meh !:
    This game is NOT a masterpiece or a joke, it is a good game only. This game is rated M, for the scared and those who later catch them doing dirty things in front of the TV. This game has moments of "someone else's grief"/cringe, uncomfortable situations that could make you feel bad if you play in front of other people (or in front of your parents or in front of your partner or in front of interested people). The game is good and fun if you like the Japanese and the games of Navecitas / Matamarcianos and Bullet Hell. It has a very basic fishing minigame that will make you laugh. You don't have to play Drakengard 3 to understand him, but it helps. The phrase "masterpiece" is released with an ease that is scary and more referring to a game that, although technically good, has many playable deficiencies and sometimes it is well argued and other times its argument "leaks everywhere" ... the game is good, transgressive, uncomfortable, ridiculous, full of cliche, pedantic ... but not a masterpiece. To play with your character without a skirt or pants is not a Mod, seriously, no mods are necessary

I die to the first boss within a matter of seconds because I don't immediately figure out how to dodge his attacks, and now I'm back in the f**king MAIN MENU and have to START THE WHOLE GAME OVER AGAIN??! Not even being able to skip the goddamn cutscenes?! Is this supposed to be some kind of dumb meta-joke?

    Your game can be as good as it wants, if you don't have the basic common sense to put a checkpoint before a boss-fight in the BABY TUTORIAL MISSION where the player is just figuring out how to play your f**king game (which is also way more difficult than it needs to be, since your game is dogs**t at explaining stuff), I'm not interested in playing it. I don't have infinite time to spare on nonsense like this. F**k this s**t. Glad I didn't spend money on this but just downloaded it off Game Pass.
