Game Informer Rating:

Rated 6.5 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tragic story of all time If you like JRPGs and like good, complex, tragic, yet cohesive stories, this might end up being your favorite game of all time. There's a big plot twist that you won't see coming, and then a 2nd perspective for the game (on 2nd playthrough) which really brings the tragedy to light. As far as storytelling goes, these bits are executed better than any game I've ever played by a large margin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best video game story I've played in 10 years I play video games for their story and here is my top five now that I've finished Nier: 1. Xenogears 2. Xenosaga series 3. Nier 4. Planescape: Torment 5. Final Fantasy X This game is a MASTERPIECE when it comes to the story and never have I seen a game tell its story the way Nier does. Basically you play through the game, then have the opportunity to play through it again. And playing through it again is NOT just the same story with a different ending, prepare to have your eyes opened and to be hit in the gut ad you experience it all from a new perspective. It's very emotional and amazing. So I made it clear, the story of Nier is original and incredible. What about everything else? Well, the soundtrack is one of the best I've heard and the voice acting it out of this world. Not everything is as amazing though. The world is kind of small and there is a LOT of back tracking through the same locations over and over. The side quests can be a terrible grind for little reward, but some of them tell great stories too so it's worth it to push through. The game isn't perfect, but the story is so good this game MUST be played. And I will say this final statement: If you put in the time to play through Nier once and watch the final credits, you are doing yourself the ULTIMATE disservice if you do not do the Newgame+ feature. Actually you could say you haven't even beaten the game or seen the story unless you have at least played through twice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TRY IT OUT! THIS GAME HERE BLEW ME AWAY. SQUARE ENIX DOES IT AGAIN WITH A QUALITY GAME! THIS ACTION RPG IS PERFECT FOR THE LOVERS OF THE GENRE. I LOVE THAT YOU CAN READ THE WORDS AND THEY READ THEM TO YOU WHILE THE ACTUALLY MOVE. I DISLIKE GAMES WITH RENDERS ON THE SCREEN AND THEY JUST SEEM TO BABBLE ON. THIS GAME HAS A DEEP STORY THAT CAN BE FELT BY ANY AND ALL PLAYERS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best I've played in a long time This game was simply amazing. It has left me with such a lasting appeal, i feel complete having played it. now there are 4 endings to this game so the replay value is quite good. There is a secret ending not put in the game but its of the comic or book, whichever, that has ending 5 and reading that complete the game perfectly!!!!!!!!!!! music... its perfect! best soundtrack I have ever heard, I have all the songs too. I bought the DLC and it was pretty challenging but so, so worth it... Overall Its a must have. Cavia, S Enix, fantastic job guys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply amazing... In all honesty, this game got to be one of my all time favorites rly quick. The story was great and the characters were rly interesting and it is rly easy to get attached to them. The story drew me in and didnt let me go until the very end and even then there was a lot of questions unanswered. The game has multiple endings, each one with its own drawbacks and rewards, so u need to decide which one u like the most. The graphics, in my opinion, were just awesome and the cutscenes were epic to say the least. This game is one of the great undiscovered gems in gaming history and if u dont play it then u r definitely missing out. The only complaint I had was the first half may seem a little slow at first but once u hit that halfway point it picks up like u wouldnt believe and u wont want to stop until u reach the end. All in all, this game is simply amazing and def worth playing. I seriously hope Sqaure Enix makes a sequel. Best $20 I've spent in a LONG time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from blew me away I just happened to be browsing the store when my wife found this game. The name makes no sense and has no insenuation to the game itself but that has no effect on the game. The graphics are amazing. It's a very good action rpg. It has some beutiful cutsceens and fun fights. The gameplay and character development isnt too complex and you dont have to grind and lvl up. The characters were very cool and my favorite part of the game was the music. You can definately tell SE had it's hands involved there. I do kinda hate that the shades werent explained til the very end but it wouldnt have fit any other way. I recommend this game to anyone who likes action games or RPGs, both will enjoy it. I know i did and I hope to see more like it in the future. I spent $15 on this game and it's worth more than that in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost a perfect game. This game is by far one of the best Action/RPG game for the PS3. The Storyline is beautiful, and game play is just pure fun. And the different weapons you can choose from is also great. The music and sound/Voice acting is really great. The ONLY big problem with this game is the graphics. The graphics look like its from a PS2 game. This isn't what I would expect from Square Enix. But if you can get over that, then I highly recommend you buy this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for storyline lovers This game won the soundtrack of the year.It has a amazing story and amazing replay value.It keeps you thinking of what happened even after you have beat it the first time due to the fact you only grasp a little bit of what happened to the world due to the fact there are 4 endings.When you get to the 3rd ending you will be in poor shock due to something happened and makes you think twice about the characters you play and shows you that your enemies may not actually be enemies...maybe you are the bad one.I wont spoil it for you but what you know to have happened may be be as it seemed.It's a great game witch changes the gameplay frequently so it doesnt feel repetetive.It doesnt decieve the credit it deserves.I am hopefull for a sequel soon.
