Good Novelization for Fans

by -

This novel nicely covers the main storyline of NieR:Automata, and fleshes out some parts that were, at best, only barely hinted at in the game itself. For that reason alone, this book is worth reading for fans, as it helps fill in those gaps.

The writing quality is all right for what it is, and the use of 1s and 0s for the letters I and O in the Machines' speech was appropriate. The localization sometimes diverges from the game's script in noticeable ways (for example, the memorable line "This cannot continue" becomes "This is no good" in the novel), which was curious but not too bothersome. There are also a handful of typos, including one or two involving characters' names, and the writing is redundant in a few places. These things weren't deal-breakers for me, but I do hope that the second volume's localization will be better.

Nier Automata Book Review

by -

The Light Novel for Nier Automata tells the story from the Game Nier Automata. There are parts that are a little more flushed out and focused on than in the game, but it does not add anything significant if you finished the games multiple ending or are looking for a new content. The novel follows the main story line of Nier Automata and does not cover any of the little side quests and stories for the pacifist robots or androids at the camp. It does not have a narrative that focuses on the details of combat, it is almost Implied that you can Imagine it for yourself as it skips as cutscenes would between fights in any video game. I feel that you should have played the game to fully enjoy the light novel, but it could feel redundant after freshly finishing the game. If you enjoyed playing the game then it is definitely worth checking out, especially for those who enjoyed the story and may not want to do another playthrough.
