I honestly don’t know how to describe this game or how to start this review. I’m just going to start out by saying, amazing, amazing, and fucking amazing. Japan is the king of games. Nier is really the best game of played in a long time. I honestly don’t have anything bad to say about this game, only that it wasn’t long enough, and it is indeed very sad. You really do sink teeth in the story, and especially the characters. The visuals are stunning! I’m a big fan of apocalyptic settings and Nier does a perfect job. You basically fight robots in an abandoned earth as vegetation and nature have taken over. You play as 2B, 9S and A2, androids sent by the organization of YoRHa. Basically humans have gone extinct. The combat is incredibly fun and not to mention the art of the main characters A2 and 2B are so jaw dropping. I had a lot fun with this game, took me a while to get through it but once you start you won’t be able to put the game down. Yoko Taro directed the game and he did what no other director could do, which was bring a total different experience to gaming. This game is indeed different. The way they tell the story is different. You really do feel like you are watching a movie and playing at the same time. The last thing I should mention about this game is the soundtrack. It’s probably one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard in a game. You won’t get tired of listening. Nier is the magnum of opus of games. At least for this year. This is the best 30 bucks I’ve ever spent.
