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.
