Surprisingly good!

This was my very first introduction to the NieR franchise and I have to say, it was nothing less than excellent. I was immediately drawn in by the graphics, music and mood of the game. The characters & their stories were interesting and engaging. While playing this game I started looking deeper into the lore and actually purchased both NieR Automata & NieR Replicant for the PS4, both of which I highly recommend. My favorite character overall was “Mama”. The voice talents of the characters themselves are also quite good. If you’re really into artwork & music this game delivers with its detailed and intriguing design. I’m not very good at fighting games in general but I found the mechanics of the game extremely easy to get used to and level up my characters and their weapons for battle. The “mini games” left a little to be desired & some the gameplay was a bit repetitive in nature but that is basically the whole point of the game. You can kind of see the obvious ending coming down the road but even after you “finish”, the main story isn’t completely over. I loved this game and still haven’t finished it but keep coming back because it is genuinely that good. If you’re debating about playing it just do it already!

Story is ok, gameplay is a bit boring

The theme of exploring weapon stories is cool and seeing stories playout is really neat. But the “game” part is really boring since for the most part you can put it on Auto and the game plays itself. The auto feature is mostly useful because you will have to grind a lot, and sit through 10-15min of auto play per round for your grinding. Since the story is stronger than the gameplay, this would have been better if it was not a game but an short story anime or something. But since it is a game some QoL improvements at minimum would be, not sending back to title screen if stamina is full and you try to send/receive stamina from friends. If a level/battle has already been completed auto should just auto complete the battles; should not have to sit through 10–15 minutes of having to watch each battle play until you run out of stamina. Adjust material and stamina requirements, grind is fine but the price of some upgrade materials is too much. Only with half stamina events does it make it easier to grind for things you need. And since you have to mostly auto play they really need to implement a way for the screen to stay on instead of defaulting to your phones auto screen off. So many other game apps override the settings to keep the screen on, but you have adjust your auto lock settings.


Everything to expect from a NieR game

Just as you would expect from a NieR game, this new addition has incredible story telling that will drag you in while being accompanied by a phenomenal soundtrack and stunning graphics. The gameplay isn’t too over the top and can even be completely automatic for those who are only really interested in the story's. However just like any game there will be at least some minor bugs. One of the main bugs that I have been running into at the moment is that at times when I collect something from either a mission or by collecting on of the birds my game will constantly have the connecting sign in the corner of the screen and never connect despite having perfectly fine internet. However, I don’t find this to be a big enough of an issue to cost such a great game even 1 star. This game most certainly has the potential to become one of the greatest mobile games of all time as long as they move in the right direction and I can’t wait to see where they go with it next.
