GSY Review PS4 Xbox One PC

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!

Verdict


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. With its varied gameplay, rich background and plot, incredible soundtrack, and highly energetic battles, the game has a lot going for it – something even its technical quibbles can't overshadow. With exceptional results, Yoko Taro and Platinum Games come together to remind gamers everywhere that Japanese developers can still deliver a great experience for players of all ages.

    Seth A faithful remake of 4 will cost more than RE7/RE2R/RE3 combined. Yeah that ain't happening lol. (10 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth few enemies or areas cut from any of them will lead to inferior experience for me. (10 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth so i'll be really, really anxious if they announce RE1 Re-remake or RE4R. These are two of my all time favourite games with perfect pacing and memorable encounters. (10 Hours ago)

  • Seth

    Seth RE2R is in my top 5 RE games. The issue with these reimaginings comes to budget. Even their core team had to cut some content (less enemy types, B scenario not as good as original). (10 Hours ago)
