Any game with Kainé is a 20/10. Any game with these side quests is a -1/10. So I guess it evens out to a 9.5/10.

There is an incredible game beyond one of the worst paced stories I have ever experienced. It has a couple of flaws that are just so insanely bad, which is so sad because when the game hits it has some of gaming's strongest moments. This 9/10 rating really is a "10/10 except a number of genuinely 2/10 aspects". Was it not for ending E being incredible, I might have developed much worse of a view on it, due to the final endings being so weakly executed and told, and the constant replay loop structure being functionally useless after a certain point. A 40 hour long game with about 30 hours of incredible content, 8 hours of suffering and 2 hours of moments that I wish hit harder. And yes after a negative focused review I'm still giving it a 9/10 because Yoko Taro legally owns 37% of my brain and most of my organs.

I’ve wanted to play NieR Replicant ever since I played NieR Automata in 2022, and now with a PS5 I was finally able to play it. This game destroyed me emotionally, I loved the characters, the story, and the gameplay, the only real flaw I found was the pacing. NieR Replicant follows Nier, Grimoire Weiss, Kainé, and Emil, who are on a quest to save Nier’s sister Yonah from a disease that’s killing her. Combat was really fun, I enjoyed how fast paced it was compared to some other action RPGs I’ve played, however the music was definitely the stand out. NieR’s music is beautiful on a whole new level and I now have so many more songs I love, Automata was just the start of the addiction. While I do prefer Automata, I think I prefer Replicant’s music and characters, while Automata has better gameplay, story, and pacing. The pacing in Replicant is bad I will say, to get all the endings you have to play a substantial chunk of the game at least four times and unlike Automata, Replicant doesn’t have that major differences between playthroughs. However, the highs of NieR Replicant definitely outweigh the lows, and I can now call myself a huge NieR fan.

Yoko Taro will say everything is meaningless then waste your meaningless time by making you play the sloppiest game of all time 5 times in a row to see a different 5 seconds ending cutscene. Truly the best shitposter of all times, i can only applaude.

Still i highly recommend it as the fishing game included inside Nier Replicant is vastly superior to the actual game and not a waste of your time, no fishing games are a waste of time, in fact God created life so humans can experience the joys of digital fishing simulations.

what a fucking game. so SO human in every way, truly one of my favorite vidoe games ever made. I love this fucking game so much.

To sum it up! A wonderful game with a unforgiven substories.
