I didn’t play the previous game which was called simply Nier but as I bought a PS4 quite recently I thought why not download a demo of the new upcoming sequel Nier Automata. And as I am new to the world of Nier I wasn’t particularly thrilled to go and explore the game but well I was curious though.
My type of an ideal game is an open world RPG with tons of stuff to do and explore while immersed in a vast dynamic world. This game is said to be an open world game however the demo is rather running through corridors and there is not much room for exploration. I thought that developers would want to show us at least a little bit of taste of that open world and what you could possibly do as opposed to throwing us into a very narrow mission. But if their plan is to then surprise us with a freedom of choice and movement without hitting invisible walls then I am all in.
Graphics are pretty. the game looks good, the main character movements are smooth and fast and nice to look at. Weapons they give us to play with in the demo are also cool. However I didn’t like the platform segments where the camera switches from third person view to this from side platform view, it tends to pull me out of immersion. But the combat is good I like that.
So in conclusion, well look there will be plenty of gamers liking the whole experience and that’s totally fine. In my opinion the combat is cool, the movement of the main character is also very good. Graphics are pretty…but I personally didn’t enjoy the demo all that much. Well, so if you are a Nier fan then definitely go and check out the demo.
Hope you have a nice day guys!
