- Play it again.by Ryan

Seriously. Don't "play" this just once. Play it four times. Each time, you get a different perspective and reaches further into the story and continues to develop the characters and the NieR universe. The music is incredible, among the best OSTs in all of gaming. As you'd expect from this developer, the combat is fun, varied, and enthralling. The voice acting was surprisingly good too for a game that written first for Japanese audiences. If 2017 hadn't been such a stellar year for games (Persona 5, Horizon, Breath of the Wild), NeiR:Automata would've had a solid shot at winning the prize.

I didn't expect it to become my favorite but it did. It is amazing! I am glad I bought it, it needs to be played 3 times, each time you play it it is different. And just to snuff out the myths... the game took me 35 hours to complete bypassing many of the side quests.

Nier: Automata won the Best Soundtrack for Game Awards 2017 - and the absolutely gorgeous music doesn't even begin to describe how good this game is. The story is complex and uniquely told through its medium as a video game. You need to play this game to the 3rd playthrough to even begin appreciating the writing and character building - and even then, you'll probably want to go back and replay it to find all the subtleties the game has left for you along the way. The game has a great mix of combat styles and just when you think you 'know' how the game works, it changes itself. The game has 4 difficulty levels so if you are the casual gamer who just want to progress the story or the hardcore gamer who prefers life on Very Hard mode (you die in one hit from any battle) - Nier: Automata has you covered. Nier: Automata is a rare game that treats the player as an intelligent person, with zero handholding along the way and plenty of easter eggs for you to find. Side quests in this game are more than fetch for prizes and actually contribute to the world and your overall experience and understanding of the story. Beware, you may be left with a bunch of feels at the end and wonder what is the matter with Yoko Taro (director) and his twisted genius.
