We finally have NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…in our hands. Taking advantage of the good reception he had Deny Automatic by critics and users, Square Enix brings us a new version of the title released in 2010 for Xbox 360. The magnum opus of Yoko Taro comes back in the form of reinvention, this is neither a remaster nor a remake, in the words of its creative director. Even if it could well be, since the combat system has been tweaked and content has been added which did not reach the original work. Also, of course, thevisual improvements are palpable compared to the 2010 title, improving resolutions and performance. From Xbox Area, we bring you a full analysis so you can find out why NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… It is a true wonder and a unique and irreplaceable work.
The story of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… tells the story of Yonah and her brother (whom we control and call what we want), two orphan children surviving in their village with the help of your neighbors. When Yonah is the victim of a strange and unknown disease, runic necrosis, her brother decides at all costs to seek a cure. This will take you to an adventure where friendship, tragedy and mixed feelings they are absolute protagonists.
We will visit the different environments of the kingdom where our protagonists live, meet memorable charactersLike Kainé, Weiss and Emil, completing missions and battling the “shadows”, the main enemies of the game. It is surprising how the title, through its characters, missions and environment, is able to transmit both via command. And also using the most classic language of video games, without resorting to other types of ornaments, approach the player in a very authentic way
Specify that this NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…What comes to us now is the reinvention of a title that has never been released in the West. What happened in Europe in 2010 was “Deny: form(Here it is called Deny simply). With a more mature protagonist, in which Yonah was the daughter and not the sister of the protagonist as in “Replicant“. Although the basis of the game is the same, not being the same protagonist, it changes the way he sees the world and his relationships with other characters. Even if you will play Deny in his time, you go a good opportunity to rediscover the work from another point of view.
Classic structure, renewed combat
To accomplish our task, we can move freely in all environments as we discover them, although sometimes due to the demands of the script we get a bit of guidance. The game he doesn’t have a too extensive world map, except that he repeats the same scenarios during what the piece gives of itself. It may seem bad at first, but in a job like Replicant helps immersion and a lot of empathy with the protagonist and the inhabitants of these cities. Although these send us simple racing missions, the feelings of our protagonist and the feeling that our works are really important in the lives of these inhabitants he is present all the time. Conversations and continuous scenes help a lot, with a very well worked plot and characters who have always something to say about what’s going on.
The fight It has been renovated to look more like what it offered us Deny Automatic, although without being so deep, because in Automaton the Platinum Games seal is more visible. That leaves us with some fights with a lot of rhythm, almost approaching hack n slash. We have several types of Melee weapons: light swords, spears and two-handed swords, each with a light and strong attack (X or Y). We also have, thanks to Grimoire Wiss, our favorite talkative book, a series of magical attacks that we will unlock by finding the “sealed verses”, essential to find the remedy for Yonah.
We can combine physical and magic attacks in real time, change weapon or magic at any time at the push of a button. We also have a button to jump, another to block attacks by doing parry if we press at the right time
A title that never ceases to amaze us
NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…is a title that don’t leave anyone indifferent, surprising in many ways. Their well-designed and well-built characters, its story … and its gameplay. The title keeps transforming continuously, referring to other well-known titles. For example, he plays a lot with perspective and the camera. When we enter certain interiors, we begin to move in two dimensions, which also occurs in some dungeons. Sometimes, turns into a hell of bullets, and an aerial view shows the enemies firing projectiles that occupy the entire screen.
At other times, the plot progresses by showing only a few lines of text in which we will have to choose the correct answer from several possible ones. In this way turns into an “interactive book”, instead of showing a video scene. These continuous and surprising changes make their mark. twenty hours for your first round
We recommend that you discover all the possible endings, because to do this we will start directly in the second half of the game. Discovering them will take us another ten hours. It’s really interesting see all these endings since we discover things of the protagonists or we have other points of view that we did not know.
As for its difficulty, we found it rather easy in its normal mode, and in its hard mode. enemies become “sponges” They absorb a lot of damage. In its easy mode we can activate the “automatic combat”, which I recommend only to activate in case we want to see all the endings after giving us the title once.
Dragging past mistakes and successes
Do not forget this NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… It’s a reinvention of a game from 2010 with all that that implies. Despite the redesigned graphic appearance, the open stages they feel a little empty. Their mission structure is somewhat dated, and while they are interesting in the full set of narrative and characters, these are still racing missions, the game being a constant go “from here to there”. Dungeons they are one hall after another in which we will have to kill all the enemies, and they do not shine by their design.
And despite all this, the game is always wonderful for all of the above, although I don’t want to forget the excellent and unforgettable soundtrack. A soundtrack that saves the pieces of the past and rmake certain arrangements about them, so they sound better than ever. Choral and orchestral pieces, songs with words and vocals, presented with exquisite taste in every mapping, dungeon or video scene. Really, one of those soundtracks to always keep in our memory and in our record collection. Unforgettable.
