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.

 This game is AWESOME!

So if your looking for an awesome RPG/Hack and slash this is the game for you! Its game-play lasts between 15-25 hours and definitely has replay value! My best buy of 2010 I must say!

There is not only a great story but also a great variety of awesome looking weapons. All different kinds. This game is quite similar to Zelda in some aspects but allot more adult.

I recommend this game to all RPG and Adventure fans ;)

 A different RPG

Nier is an RPG that is different in that I actually enjoyed the storyline. Too many games of late have had trite and boring stories with predictable plots. Nier however comes from the people at Cavia and it shows in the story. The combat in the game is quite uncomplicated so if you are looking for Devil may cry style combat you will be disappointed. However the main storyline is very good and can be original and fairly surprising. There are four endings in this game and the second playthrough and the end of the first shows a different perspective that may leave you not knowing how to feel about the protagonist and his enemies. Fair warning though, New game+ starts around the middle of the game and one of the endings erases all your save data. You are given several warnings about this before it takes place so make back-ups of your save beforehand if you can. Overall this has decent gameplay and a strong story although a little short for an RPG but worth buying if you enjoy a game that chooses to entertain through the story.

 Nier, Far, Wherever you are!

I got this game quite cheap. Expected nothing of it... and it delivered SO much more! You will care about the characters even if the titular man looks like a fat mop handle. The voice acting is awesome, the big bosses actually feel BIG and the music should be nominated for awards. I have tried learning to play the music it's so good. For anyone who thought FFXIII sucked, trade in for this. You wont be sorry.

 best rpg ever

well?where can i start in the praising of this game?it really is a pleasure to play afrer all the rubbish thats come out lately,everything you'd expect in an rpg is here,the graphics are really great as is the fighting,plenty of hack and slash and the bosses are at times quite daunting,a game not to be missed .... think i'll carry on with it right now lol,by the way watch out for the boss fight in the scrap yard and make sure you've got your full quota of lives ,you'll need them .
