A bit more than a year after its PS4 release, NieR: Automata has finally reached the shores of Microsoft's console, just in time to allow you to spend the best summer ever. If you've never truly be interested in the game because it was not originally announced on Xbox One, you have some catching up to do with our verdict and 2 gameplay videos. Enjoy!
While the gaming media is mostly occupied with the release of the Nintendo Switch, alongside the remarkable Legend of Zelda, and the technical masterpiece Horizon: Zero Dawn, NieR: Automata deserves a spot right between these two mastodons.
