NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... (23rd April 2021)

Recommended Posts

Finished playthrough B and whilst Replicant isn't as good as Automata IMO, it's still a great game. It is a weird one though. A breakdown of my opinions over time:

Playthrough A: Act 1: About as generic as it's possible to be. Clearly feels like an old game with a fresh lick of paint. At least the combat and music are good.
Playthrough A: Act 2: Ok, things are picking up, but it's still nothing that special. I'm beginning to wonder if all the praise is just nostalgia and weebs.
Playthrough A: Ending: Oh, that twist is a bit of a kick in the pants.
Playthrough B: This is soul destroyingly brilliant. 

I'm not a fan of games that start off slow and you have to slog through the tedious early sections, but Nier:Replicant is utterly brilliant towards the end of the first playthrough and beyond. It's not quite Automata levels of brilliant, but it's not far off.
