Nier Replicant: Ver. 1.22474487139 (PS4) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Paul Broussard: "For all of its faults, Nier is still a refreshing and, at times, genuinely inspiring take on narrative crafting in games. It’s just a shame the development team missed an opportunity to make it more than that. Ver 1.22 had the chance to take a cult classic and make it one of the best games in recent memory, but instead I'm left wondering what could have been; just like eleven years ago."

It’s not a full remake as they clearly said . They said more than a remaster of just the graphics but not a full remake , which mainly is tweaked combat and an extra area .. The combat is much improved over the original , don’t play on easy/normal or it’s too easy. If you play on hard parry has more meaning and not needed on normal . You can do some cool combos as the game progresses .This was not going to suddenly be better than Auromata in game design because it’s a PS3 generation game Not a remake or a new game. Nier was one of my favorite PS3 multiplats and the atmosphere is still there with improved combat not sure why people expected more than that ???

I loved Automata and can't wait to give this go, however, I will wait untill they patch the resolution for ps5 so it's on par with the series x.

you know, when Taro said Reviewers wont get it, he was spot on.

the game was not a remake. more of a remaster. we got a ton of new things. new overhauled music, new combat, new fully voiced game experiece, new content, a new ending (that was a novel only). im not sure what these people expected it to be? gaming journalism at its best. maybe im biased, but if i play a remaster of a ps3 game, i dont expect it to be more than it originally was. and damn, we got alot of new things.

i know VGC hates everything that is not a typical xbox game, but they missed the point entirely.
