Nier: Automata is another classic Yoko Taro game: It shouldn’t work, but it does. It’s one of those rare, once in a lifetime treats. Steam users are also fond of the nicely rendered robot arse.
Nier: Automata is firmly in the wheelhouse of director Yoko Taro’s particular brand of wacky. According to Steam, it will make you laugh; you’ll be able to appreciate some scantily-clad women; the gameplay is at Platinum’s best; and you will also cry horrible, wracking sobs as the game stomps on your heart.
