Nothing is as it seems as players are kept guessing from beginning to end by elaborate plotlines and cliff-hangers that reveal a complex reality hidden behind the illusion. Jump into the title role of the unyielding Nier as he begins his desperate quest to discover a cure for his daughter, Yonah, who is stricken with the deadly Black Scrawl disease. Armed with a powerful set of magical abilities as well as mighty swords and armor, Nier will do battle alongside a set of formidable allies against waves of dark enemies and giant bosses to discover the truth about the disease, his daughter and himself.

  • Unbelievable Story Twists and Reveals: Immerse in an amazingly intricate storyline set in a world plagued by human anguish, buried secrets and a ravaging disease. With plot twists hiding around every corner, Nier's story needs to be seen to be believed.
  • RPG Gameplay Injected With Action-Packed Combat: Battle ferocious and mysterious enemies by combining proven RPG-style gameplay, such as magic, character development and faithful allies, with action-focused explosive swordplay and combat.
  • Powerful Magical Abilities: When his sword isn't enough, Nier can call on a remarkable array of stylish and powerful spells to augment his combat moves and overcome adversaries. As players progress, upgraded spells will help defeat ever-more-deadly enemies.
  • Brutal Combat Moves: Face off against evil creatures and unleash brutal combat moves along with devastating combo attacks. Unlock an arsenal of devastating weapons, each with its own design and attack style.
  • Formidable Allies: Travel with a dynamic party of allies and do battle against monstrous giants as a powerful and united party.
  • An Imaginitive and Stunning World: Travel across an unforgettable world filled with varied landscapes featuring the hauntingly familiar remains of modern society.

I didn't play this for ages after buying it due to FF13, Fallout etc and it got left to one side. This is probably one of the best games I have played (as an RPG fan) - it has a fantastic storyline (the type FF has been missing for a long time) and a real twist to it. The game is very dark-even more so after the 2nd playthrough, it makes you regret most of what you did the first time round. Loved every minute of it. Hope the sequel is released her.

 One of my favourite games of the year!

I bought this game for just a tenner after months of ignoring it on the shelves just because critics didn't love it - ignore them! This game is a fantastic RPG with a simplistic story-line, which is a welcome change for me when so many RPGs of late focus on the massive task of saving the world (cliche). The characters and voice acting are great. The combat and magic are easy to come to grips with. There are hours upon hours of side quests on top of the 20+hr story. I've owned this game for just under a week now and I can't stop playing it, its addictive to say the least. Buy this game, Final Fantasy fans in particular (pre-FFXII) will love it. For RPG fans everywhere. BUY BUY BUY! Seriously BUY IT!

 Ignore the critics

Story will keep you interested, but the gameplay of going one place to the next will make you.....sleep.
At some points of the game you may wish something big might happen. If you make to the last final chapter, NOW THATS when the pace/action really starts.

puzzles are easy if you read carefuly, graphics are ok not the best but ok. (I felt like I was playing a half finished ps2 game where the director said "oh...its ps3 ...err...just change a few things") Its nice to see something different, just wasnt as action packed as I thought.

Not sure whats up with game designers these days, games need action!, story and mystery alittle. Plus at sometimes that last bit of survival where you only have one chance to win...

Square enix needs to just remake drakenguard 1 or 2, then compare it to this again and see the big difference....its real easy^^

I would say just rent it, not worth buying

one of the main story quests requires you to catch a fish and this is damn near impossible due to the mechanics they have implemented it with. i gave up after 1hour but read somemore online reviews and it appears it took some people 4-5 hours
