5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly biased and wordy review Jan. 10 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Prepare for a biased review since I enjoy the game.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very enjoyable experience Feb. 7 2011
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
At first glance, one may think that this is a second rate game. It doesn't have the best graphics on the market and there are a number of somewhat boring fetch quests. The fishing is impossible until you realize that the instructions were translated incorrectly. However, despite all that, it is one of the most enjoyable games that I had played in a long time.
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nier-ly Good June 22 2010
Platform for Display:PLAYSTATION 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Nier is an odd bit of gaming. There is a compelling and interesting storyline, with some interesting characters, even the worst winey character of the bunch, Emil, is likeable and something of the pathetic character that you feel for as he sacrifices his very humanity to help his companions. Nier proves that a game can have a great story, but still it fails on a certain level.

Nier is set in a post-apocalyptic future, where you play as one of the ugliest characters I've ever seen. He's a dad, his name is Nier, unless you change it something else, and he's got white hair and inviso brows. Sure he gets a great eye patch at around the half-way point, but essentially Nier looks like the missing link. Although I applaud the attempt to switch from the usual cry-baby main character with an undetermined sex. The game diverges from that usual JRPG story-line at some points and returns to old convention often.

As the father, Nier, the mission is protect and find a cure for the black scrawl that has infected his daughter. And as Nier travels the 'world' he finds new allies, like Grimoire Weiss, Kaine, and Emil. Weiss is a magical book, Kaine is an a bit of dude but mostly gal, and Emil is a weird kid that initially change enemies to stone, but later makes a big sacrifice to save the day. While the game has a good set of main characters it's everything else that would make this game really good that Nier fails.

Graphically the game looks very old, last generation old. I realize that the world has lost a great deal with this story-line, but it's still for a lack of things to see. Villages, all three of them, while different don't add that personality that cities can do with the right games. Although the sea-side city of Seafort looks nice.
