    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.

    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.

    Being that the game is unchanged from last year, it’s no surprise that the Become As Gods Edition doesn’t disappoint. If you’re Xbox-only and haven’t given this game a go, there’s no better time than the present.

    The award masterpiece of Platinum Games arrives on Xbox One: the story is captivating, the world is alive and evolving, the combat is engaging and the soundtrack is simply amazing.

    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 it's cheaper. A win-win situation despite its delay.

    Nier: Automata Become As Gods Edition has a very deep and thoughtful story, but it requires a lot of time before you get down to it.

    Square enix did it yet again. Nier: Automata is the single player hack and slash RPG every xbox gamer wanted to come to our platform, and itSquare enix did it yet again. Nier: Automata is the single player hack and slash RPG every xbox gamer wanted to come to our platform, and it did.

    In a time where aliens invade earth with machine lieforms, the human race hangs by a thread on orbiting "bunkers". There are so many things that this games does perfectly that tons of other games attempted. Lets start with the constant POV changes. One minute you're in the standard 3rd person, next you're playing as a 2D sidescroller, usually finished with a top down sequence. The game blends the POV so well in a way that comes off as refreshing in the gaming world.

    The combat is fluid and satisfying. Every blow to an enemy feels significant and wonderful to do. Nier: Automata in a way reminds me of a faster paced Bloodborne. If you aren't evading enemy attacks you could instantly die to a combo in higher difficulties. (You'll die instantly from one hit on the hardest difficulty regardless). The boss battles always have your adrenaline running which is something I haven't personally felt since Cuphead.

    Story wise, the game is pretty straightforward and makes you question your morals and the cause you're fighting for around halfway through the game. Otherwise, the game is spectacular in every respective way. My only complaint is that there are a few questionable texture pop in times here and there. Nonetheless, Nier: Automata is the perfect game every Xbox player should own.

Nier characters are amazing, you will fall in love with all of them, fall in love with tha incredible soundtrack and the fast paced combat. The combat. Nier has a lot of weapons to choose, you can smash things with a virtual hammer, slice with cool swords and even hack machines. I can't see nothing bad about this game, even the side quests are great, all of them have an original story, usually a tragic one, this game is vary sad... you'll cry, but it'll be the better jrpg that you will ever play in this generation Expand

TheThe game takes you through an exciting adventure with multiple points of view and an extra part once you finish the main storyline. The characters are well developed and the empathy that you develop towards them is well justified.
    The game lacks a better development of the antagonist and the boss's fights.

    Main characters are beautifully designed.
    You will finish the game full of different feelings.

    *Here in Madly Geek we try always to finish the games 100%, and this one wasn't an exception, and it was pretty enjoyable to do this and plus pass through the secret and special ending that is a gift from it's creator, that goes along pretty well with the game's philosophy.

    The game is fun, but to play over and over for the alternate endings is sort of a drag. If you like anime, definitely buy this game.

    No save until first boss killed and can't skip many intros. Need wait and pass easy parts again. Annoying.
