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. 122474487139... is a true masterpiece. Toylogic has managed to polish all the areas in which the original title failed, offering this time a practically rounded product, putting the cherry on top of a splendid story and a soundtrack that, for sure, we will listen to outside of the game.

    The NieR Replicant remake is an excellent action RPG with one of the best game stories ever and updated combat, but it's not without a few problems.

    For someone who plays videogames just to have fun, Nier Replicant can be a brutal experience with its slogging pacing and busy work questing design. Behind all that rubble there is an amazing cast of characters that perform in an incredible emotional story, full of great conceptual themes that stick in your heart and mind days after the finale.

    NieR Replicant ver.1.22 remains a unique experience and it is nice to find familiar faces under the aegis of a successful graphic facelift.

    NeiR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is an improved remake of an okay game. The changes that have been actioned are impressive and they in turn make the experience all so much better. Just be aware that many of the basic elements that held back the original are still present.

    A great game to discover (or rediscover) Yoko Taro's world and the atmosphere of the NieR series. The remake work is not among the best and certainly some choices are questionable, such as keeping the tedious fetch quests, but it remains an exciting and valuable epic and that's why it's a recommended game to play.

    A welcome revamp to a more than decade-old cult classic, NieR Replicant ver.122474487139... will be equally inviting to Automata fans, NieR veterans, and newcomers alike. Only a lack of variety, a lightweight combat challenge, and disappointing boss encounters put a downer on proceedings.

Story and music are incredible and literally mind-blowing. Truly a masterpiece. The game play part is not perfect to be honest but if you know of Yoko Taro you know his games were never major successes, so this is the best he can do with the budget. This game put all mainstream studios to shame. If you like deep stories this is a must play, Make sure you beat all the endings, there are tons of stories to bring you to tears. Expand

Graphics are good, solid framerate, musics a very nice though a bit repetitive. Never has a game had such an impact on me, very powerful story, a must play for any ARPG fan. Expand

Don't compare to automata they are different games. But the story that unfolds is breathe taking and once the story actually starts to unfold it doesn't stop. If you like automata or just amazing stories and characters you will find it here.

    The music in this game is as good as its predecessor and I had my character stop in places just to listen to the soundtrack.

    And lastly the game runs flawlessly on my original Xbox one. No framerate issues. Most games don't run this well and had to bring it up. Yako toru (please tell me I spelled his name right) I am a huge fan of your work and can't wait to see what is in store for us.

    A strange, beautiful and flawed narrative action rpg that will stay with you long after the ending... or endings.

    A failure at telling a, potentially interesting, story. The gameplay is a drag, the world is barren and uneventful, characters do not changeA failure at telling a, potentially interesting, story. The gameplay is a drag, the world is barren and uneventful, characters do not change and are unfulfilling. Side quest as a whole are not recommended. How can this be a RPG if side quest are almost all just poorly designed fetch quest with no motive? How is it open world if the world has nothing to offer exploring? The combat is repetitive and shallow too. After 3 hours of playing I never died again, because by that time I realized most enemies could be knocked down with the lance magic and then killed in one button press.

    The soundtrack is good and interesting, but forcing players to repeat the second half of the game 4 times with minimal additions to the story will make it so someone trying to like the game will mute the audio, skip all cutscenes(which we’ve seen multiple times by now), and just rush through 4 hours of trivial boss fights to get 5 minutes of now content at the very end.

    If someone wants to know the lore of the Nier games I would recommend skipping this game and just reading the plot online for a brief idea, it’s not like most of the plot actually matters. It only becomes interesting at the end of each route.
