    [​IMG]NieR: Automata will be released today. Here's the review from MMORPG:

    The RPG Files: Nier: Automata Review
    Nier: Automata may be the strangest game I've ever played. One moment, it's an awe inspiring action game pitting sexy androids against arm flailing robots inspired by the latest trends in round-top garbage bins. In the next, you're in a 2D side scroller, clashing axes on the back of a moving roller coaster. In another 10, you might just be playing a dual stick shooter against a giant oil-rig with saws for hands. Through it all, the story twists and turns taking you from one off the wall encounter to another, making for a decidedly off-kilter experience made all the better for its RPG elements.

    [...]

    Score: 7.5/10

    Pros:
    • Excellent, deep combat
    • Movement is a joy
    • Deeper, longer story than first appears
    • Utterly compelling strangeness
    Cons:
    • Constrained open world
    • Limited character customization/building
    • Limited choices
    • Bland sidequests
