A fantastic mix of explosive action and thoughtful storytelling, that results in one of the most unpredictable and ambitious action role-players of the modern era.

As good as it was on PS4,, but with a bit more content and cheaper. A win-win situation despite its delay.

NieR: Automata is a masterclass action game with deep RPG mechanics, and a beautiful open world. While it's held back by a weak narrative and a clunky game format that mandates replaying hours of content, it offers a wide variety of enjoyable experiences that make it well worth the asking price.

If you love a great story told with devastating style, you need to play through Nier Automata several times.
