That review is horrendous, you're trolling me right? I'm sure his opinion on the game is fine, but his format, his structure, and the way he's judging parts of the game is so stupid.
Many of you probably know that I am in love with the video game Nier. It's one of my favorite games of all time. You also probably know that I'm an incredibly lazy and sh*tty writer, and because of that I have failed you. I have failed all of you. I have failed Nier. I have failed in the sense that I have been unable to effectively convince you all to go out and play this masterpiece. You see Nier is a very complex game, one so complex that me being the simpleton that I am have an extremely difficult time translating into words just what it is that makes this game so special.
Being aware of this sad truth, I have sought for ways to better help you understand the utter magificence that is Nier and so I went searching. I sifted through countless videos, forums, and reviews, and finally came across a brilliant piece of writing - a user review, but this is far far far from your ordinary user review. It is an important document. It is, simply put, the most detailed (and spoiler free!) breakdown of Nier ever put on the internet.
Not only is it wonderfully written, it's author (who goes by the name of mrklarryd) discusses every single flaw and strength of Nier in vivid detail. He gives both deep insight into each character and also some real world history surrounding the game. His perspective brought to light certain things about the game that I didn't even notice myself, and I played through it like 4 f*cking times. In his review he manages to achieve what every "professional game critic" totally and miserably failed at. He delves into the very essence of Nier, and defines just what it is that makes the game so special, and he does it all without spoiling important details!
Now the review is very long, but I implore you to find the time to read it. There's also an interesting bit towards the end where he convincingly explains why this misunderstood classic was doomed to receive mixed reviews.
