Square Enix has done it again! Another superb game released by Square Enix "NieR: Automata (2017)" which has Officially hit my top 5 games ever made and holding strong at #2. NieR: Automata has an amazing story, a trippy but unique and fun play style; and the artwork is off the charts.
On the Official Steam Launch date March 7th, 2017, I sit anxiously for the install to complete as I had pre-ordered NieR: Automata. Once the install completed I instantly dropped all I was doing to click play. When I hit the play button I was completely blown away by how the game started out. It was right off the bat a "Rise of the Tomb Raider" moment where I had to quickly figure out the basics of what was going on as it whisked me away through a series of the start up until It started sharing the tooltips of what to click to do what.
As I continued to play around as the Character B2, direction seemed to change; in a sense, I felt as if I was Aeon Flux here and there sort of a comics book movement based I really love this game. All I can say at this moment in time if you haven't played NieR: Automata; you haven't played a good game yet!
