I finished NieR Replicant… kinda, not really. I finished Ending A, and it was a real kick in the pants. This game is truly a masterpiece in knowing when to make you laugh and when to really feel. I’m really glad I decided to shelve Automata to finish this first. Now when I go back to playing it I’ll have a better idea of piecing the story together.
When you re-open your save after finishing the game, and you get through half an hour’s worth of recapping from the first playthrough you’re dropped off in your house where you’ll find the diary of NieR’s mother. Touching it takes you to a white room, where you’re seeing things from the perspective of Papa NieR. Every door you enter in this white realm is a chapter in the Mother’s diary. It’s very similar to Devil May Cry’s Bloody Palace; it drops you off in an area you’ve already cleared, and the purpose is to get through each chapter without dying. If you’re successful you’ll get a reward at the end of each chapter, like character costumes and weapons.
I do have to say that I can recommend this game to anyone that likes a good hack n slash. It’s beautiful, it has a very unique story, it’s funny, and you can grow watermelons in your own garden! Platinum did a wonderful job remastering it, and bringing it to PC! I look forward to playing this game again soon!
