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.

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.

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.

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. The gameplay is sensibly designed to ensure you're always having fun and the world itself is full of enough content to keep you going without forcing you to go on a Ubisoftian collect-a-thon. More importantly though, the story has impact on both a base level and philosophically, and will no doubt leave you with questions to consider for days after you finish if you enjoy that kind of thing. I wish I could have more games like NieR: Automata, but I'll probably be waiting a while — it's only so often a game this excellent comes around.

There is a ton to see and do in Nier: Automata. Talking about much of it does it a disservice to the player.

XBox One owners have no excuse to miss out on this game. It is one of the best examples of video games as a medium of entertainment and needs to be played by every person possible. I cannot stress enough how important this game is, or how good it is.

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

NieR Automata is now available for Xbox One, and this news should be enough, on its own, to get all microsoft console owners to purchase the ticket. The work of Platinum Games directed by Yoko Taro is an explosion of virtuosity mixed with artistic suggestions of various kinds, which draw as much from the video game industry as from cinema and the best science fiction literature; the whole thing is amalgamated in a playful formula as solid as it is courageous, which continues to find its weakest points in an end game too poor for an action RPG and in a technical sector that lends its side to some drop in performance in the face of such adrenaline-pumping and spectacular gameplay. The Become as Gods Edition on Xbox introduces many small improvements to the defects outlined so far, bringing to the shelves of the users of the Redmond giant a definitive and more refined version in relation to the original.

But in short it is a game that you must play; there is no other possible recommendation for a work that has managed to enamor even the most detached of the genre.
