There are annoyances, such as some unnecessary repetition, and it never really challenges as an ultimate gameplay experience, but these are more than made up for by the excellent presentation of fascinating story with intriguing and strongly-utilised themes.
NieR: Automata is a true masterpiece that shines throughout, and a must play for all PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One owners.
Nier Automata finally arrives to Xbox One, including every DLC released, and with improved resolution for Xbox One X. It is one of the greatest J-RPG of the generation: difficult, rewarding and with great characters.

With interesting mechanics such as "beating" the game for dying at certain times or doing silly things like removing your operating system, or the extremely odd way that some of the enemy machines pantomime the more mundane (or not so mundane) actions of humanity, Nier: Automata is oft-times confusing but the deftness with which the various elements found throughout, miraculously pulls the game together and is anchored by the best music in the business. What results is easily the most under-appreciated game of these last two years.
NieR: Automata is a modern masterpiece.
NieR: Automata is without a doubt one of the best games of the generation and it's likely going to remain one of my personal favorite games ever.
NieR: Automata is a gem every gamer should play at least once, regardless of its issues. Though struggling to reach the same status as its competitors, it remains one of 2017's most unique releases as well as a hallmark in storytelling.
Nier: Automata is a match made in heaven, blending the zany tragedy of Yoko Taro's storytelling with Platinum Games' high-energy gameplay. Unfortunately, the PC port suffers from performance problems.
Nier: Automata is the definition of a video game. Platinum games made a game which can entertain you for countless hours. After finishing the game, you can easily start it over. It doesn't matter if you like Japanese games or not, Nier: Automata is a game that you have to play.
