    I gotta ask: Was the robo-butt flash at the top of page two deliberate, or is the game that "service" oriented. It did come from Japan, after all.

    Ok so I know you tested the PS4 version, but what the heck with with the graphics. Looks straight out of some PS2 game. And they are super washed out, is that in the game like that or did you take potatoes and post them?

    Having played the demo on my Pro it is one of those games that looks great in motion but "meh" in static shots (basically you are always moving). Pro is 1080p/60 locked and looks better for it.

    I hadn't noticed the robo-butt flash, sorry! It's a little bit like that, unfortunately,

    There is no rating at the end of the piece.

    Hey, we haven't scored out reviews for a little over a year now. :)

    But isn't there normally an award of some sort? Even if it is a bin?

    That is what I mean. I can see no image at all. No bin, no recommendation no outstanding ect.. I didn't mean actual numbers. They have been gone for ages, and good riddance.

    Are you suggesting that if something falls between Bin and Recommended that it gets nothing?

    Edit: Also I apologise for this as your work clearly would 'rate' a better response, but I am one of those guys that just looks at the end result when it is a game I don't care/or think I don't care about.

    No apology necessary. It gets nothing if it's between Bin and Recommended. This could be a problem, but what I'd generally say these days is that there's a lot of very good games released every month, and if a game has no award and you're not a fan of the series, I'd recommend waiting for a decent sale.

    Sorry, there's no perfect way to do it, but I think the method we've got is pretty close.

    Thanks man, I appreciate the response. I am a little..I dunno, confused is not the word as I'm not confused. It just seems odd that a **** game gets a Bin piccy but a game that is better doesn't?

    I really don't mean to be difficult, it just looks like an omission rather than a decision. Us simple folk are used to the pictures ;) Perhaps you need a 'M'eh' award :D

    I am really enjoying this game so far. The combat can be very rewarding, Late game when you have EMP to deal with and your screen is just a mess it's amazing fighting through that.
    I spend all of Sat from getting up to going to bed to do ending A, Ending B was the same thing on Sun.
    On to Ending C Now and it still feels fresh.

    As someone what enjoyed the story of Nier this game is amazing, None of the simple replay the entire game again for a new ending, A B and C/D are all very different from the previous play though.
