Things can only be extreme when it comes to Platinum Games, as they developed some of the best action-packed titles in the industry. They even managed to give a twist to the Metal Gear series when they released Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. But their original franchises are just as good, Bayonetta has become an incredibly popular game even though there are only two. Combining the fast pace and stylish action of Platinum Games with the genius mind of Yoko Taro gave birth to NieR: Automata. Now, we know that it's not the first game in the NieR universe, but it's a clear reinvention, and it seems to have turned out well. But what's up with this game and why is it so popular? Well, let's talk about it.
If you're worried you've never played the original game, or if you didn't even know there was one, don't fret about it, it's no big deal. You can play this game without having ever even heard about the first one. This title takes place over a hundred years after the original one so it's not directly connected. However, we do have to mention that there are some references and small details that the longtime fans will appreciate. But for now, you just enjoy this title without worrying about the original one and you'll be fine
Among the many things we can talk about when it comes to NieR: Automata first we have to mention you don’t see at first sight: The narrative, don’t worry we won’t spoil the story here, but we can tell you it’s simply incredible. They managed to greatly develop the narrative of this game even when they went and combined so many different game styles into one.
Sure, the real basis of this game is the real-time action-based roleplay, but the combat system is so fast and accelerated, it will feel like pure action sometimes. But then there’s also the dungeon exploration part, and the more RPG mechanics integrated into the title. You can even upgrade your character by installing different chips and upgrades into the cyborgs. There’s no need to introduce you to the main characters of the game, especially 2B, since they are so popular now it’s pretty much common knowledge.
NieR: Automata is truly a masterpiece in many ways. It's a solid game in all the parts that matter, and there are even some extra things that add a lot to the game. What you get here is the classic Platinum Games experience, with all the crazy action and stylish violence, the fast pace, and the cool music. Everything you want in an action game is here, but there are a lot of elements here that will please the RPG fans too.
But what's even more surprising is the depth of the story and the quality of the narrative. It works out perfectly well, and even with how crazy all the game is, you can get into the story. It's a pretty mature plot with a top-notch narrative, add this to incredible gameplay, amazing designs, and excellent music and you're all set. It's truly one of the best games of this generation.
