When developers Toylogic and publisher Square Enix confirmed the existence of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, a remake of the niche JRPG title that served as a precursor to the much more widely successful NieR: Automata, it was not clear what to expect. There was already the possibility that the NieR Replicant would age from a purely mechanical point of view, even before the original reception of the game was considered and whether it was indicative of the upper point of its appeal or not. What players will experience in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is proof that the remake was more than justified, because the title is gracefully outdated, and the upgrades packaged in the latest version make it a JRPG worth buying in 2021.
The basis of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… surrounds the journey of a small group of characters as they move in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by alternating problems stemming from either magic or science – sometimes from both. It is a simplified description of a story that depicts broad strokes through the concepts of the found family, definitions of the soul and much more, but one of the best elements of NieR Replicant’s re-experience is immersion in his narrative, which is as strong as Automata. A revisit of Replicant shows how much of a foundation for NieR: Automata has been laid in this game, whether it’s reversals, multiple passes, or even its meta-narrative tendencies.
However, many will not question whether NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… continues to stand out in storytelling – it will be whether the title-playing mechanism can keep pace, especially 2021. NieR Replicant ver .1.22474487139… manages to adapt JRPG to modern genre sensibility, a fluid struggle paired with a deep and interesting magical system. Most of all, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… manages to strike a delicate balance between preserving the feel of the game as a standalone title, while making it a familiar experience to fans coming from NieR: Slot as the first franchise experience. Despite the different developers behind both games, the movement of the custom fight and its boss fight feel like a conventional bridge between any title.
This game also has a focus on genre bending which will be interesting for players. Alternately between side-scrolling, platforming, solving puzzles and a rain of bullets, NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… works great to make each of its shifts in mechanics work, often tying them to thematic care or story tact to add effect. Another highlight is undoubtedly the game’s voice acting and soundtrack, which are both enticing.
If there is a flaw in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…, it may be that the game shows age, although its visual elements have been upgraded to be much more aesthetically pleasing than the original. The characters look good, but not necessarily sharp, and the environment can feel a little less detailed than what one might expect from a game that is so rich in building the world. That said, it seems that the areas central to the story and its numerous inter-scenes had a little more attention and that is a smart decision, because they have a distinct visual pop-up during pauses in entering commands. The general gloom of the world NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… never entails research and a sense of adventure – an extraordinary feature that was also present in the original, but remains impressive even in 2021.
Although the entry is smooth for the player’s character, another minor problem in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is the way his AI group behaves. There were a handful of moments when members of the group were idling when a fight was going on or they would get stuck on environmental barriers during the research. None of these problems have had much of an impact on gaming – indeed, the fight only applies to what the player is doing, and the wrong AI has never negatively affected research – but it is at least noticeable.
These small interferences are not very important when you compare them with the improvements that NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… makes across the board. Lock in combat is a wonderful addition, making it even smoother and much less frustrating, and the ability to use magic spells while attacking is reminiscent of Automata-in Pod system – a fun, multi-directional focus that helps the player feel more in control of the battle. It’s without considering something you really need to experience without any fan spoilers – a whole new ending added by NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… From the construction of the remake it is clear that it is intended to expand the story that players first experienced many years ago, and not simple repetition with better graphics.
NieR Replicant watch.1.22474487139… isn’t just a comprehensive remake that brings some stunning corrections – it’s also proof of concept for the series going forward. The story goes on, a subtle fight is engaged, and its charm and melancholy resonate with the players long after they lowered the controller. To re-establish Nier’s past, it becomes clear how bright his future is. NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is something worth playing in 2021 and later, and a unique JRPG that continues to challenge the convention even a decade after it first began to do so.
