I borrowed this game from a friend after reading a "Let's Play" guide for it and the game is fun. In fact it was so much fun, I bought the DLC and bought my own copy of Nier. The game is great but it is not without its faults. However, the missteps in the game don't make the game unplayable.
The story is a bit odd when you first start it, especially if you look at the source material. Nier is the sequel to Drakengard's last ending. However, you don't need to know anything about Drakengard to enjoy this one. The trailers and official reviews can be a bit misleading about the game. Don't look at it's metacritic score either. You really should try this game out yourself and form your own opinion. To be cliche, "One man's trash is another's treasure", and it certainly is my treasure. I think the story is incredibly unique and compelling. It practically forces you to replay it, because you just want to know the truth.
The gameplay mechanic isn't completely balanced, but it won't detract from the experience of the game or be so hideously noticeable that it renders the game unplayable. Also please note the fishing minigame in Nier is mistranslated. So I would suggest watching a youtube video or reading an online guide on how to do it, since the in-game instructions are wrong. Like it's predecessor, Nier also has multiple endings that reveal shocking plot twists and information. So if you do buy the game. Please play it at least twice.
The characters are really well developed throughout the story and the characters aren't one dimensional. I fell in love with the main cast. Not in an obsessive fanatical way, but you really grow with the characters and feel for them.Read more ›
The story is far above average. What starts as a simple story of a father trying to save his sick daughter becomes more complex as it proceeds. And on the second playthrough you can hear what the "monsters" are thinking. Believe me, there were times when I almost started to cry.
The boss fights are very challenging and the music is probably the best I have ever heard in a video game.
If you like uber-realistic graphics, this probably isn't the game for you. If you want an excellent story and solid gameplay, then I highly recommend this title.
