I didn't expect much from Nier going in, and in truth it starts a bit slow, very much like a typical action RPG. But soon it gets very good, and then it keeps getting better and better. It defies convention in a number of ways, including a variety of fighting methods that actually make a difference depending on enemy tactics and the environment. It also gives you a number of different magic techniques and makes you learn them and use them using clever game design. There's even a mini text adventure, with some very easy riddles, showing that the designers chose purposely not to hew to tradition (at least, not recent tradition).

So the gameplay is very, very good. But what pushes Nier over the top is the story and characterization. I loved that I actually understood the story, unlike so many JRPGs where it seems that the designers work to make the story incomprehensible. It's a simple story of a man trying to save his daughter from a mysterious menace, with some fascinating side stories that serve admirably to draw the player in.

I've saved the best for last; the character design and dialog in Nier are absolutely top-notch. I won't spoil it for you by giving details (really, try not to learn too much about this game before playing it; you'll ruin many great surprises), but in particular, the characters of Weiss and Kaine are absolutely superbly written and voice-acted. Be warned, though, that one of them uses some fairly coarse language, so those with delicate sensibilities might want to stay away.

The icing on the cake is a dollop of humor; this is not your father's dead-serious JRPG. Nier is truly greater than the sum of its parts, and if you love great games, you owe it to yourself to play this one.

At 1up my blogs dissected & examined Nier from every angle. The fact I spent so much time discussing this game should be a testament onto itself however it is important I put all that into one review to make it easier for you the readers.

Essentially this game is a brain melter. In a ruined city Nier, a rugged looking middle aged man is wielding a lead pipe against creatures composed of jumbled floating text. These abominations are called "shades" and it is assumed they almost wiped humanity clean off the face of the earth. Nier is not trying to save the world. His more immediate concern is protecting his sweet daughter Yohna .

Suddenly an evil talking book on the ground tempts Nier with power. "You can't fight them all off. You know you want to defend the little one you love." Any of us would bargain with the devil at this point.

While wielding the pipe I could do evasive rolling, jumping, and hammer on shades with quicker yet weaker attacks or charge up more powerful yet slower swings. Pretty much Nier felt like a clunky God of war mixed with a 3D final fight. The whole motif of dear dad protecting his child in a ruined city also made me reminisce about the first Silent Hill.

Then the floating book comes into play. All at once Nier is pulverizing shades with giant fists, impaling lances, and wave shaped blasts of dark energy brought to hellish life by the arcane tome. Running back and forth I'm hurling bright red balls of power at my foes when it dawns on me now Nier is more like Smash TV, Death Smiles, and Bayonetta. It was at this decisive moment I fell in love with the game. It also hurt me to admit I saw reasons why others may hate it.

Summary: Worth $25, in my opinion. Must like grinding. Story will keep you interested.

US Edition
Pros: -From early on, I gained an emotional attachment to the main characters daughter. They did an excellent job of keeping the main character gruff but caring, and making the daughter charming and not tiresome.
-Magic bar regenerates at a decent rate, and can absorb energy when enemies die. This makes magic an often used tactic, not hoarded Just In Case of surprise boss battles. They let you re-assign all of the shoulder buttons to either: block, dodge, or any discovered magic spells. I dropped block entirely, and never missed it.
-The talking book, your earliest sidekick, has a very good and fleshed out character. My favorite part was the many arguments between the talking book and your female sidekick (who is dressed like a lingerie model, also a plus).
-Earning words that you can attach to worn gear added a nice layer of customization.
-Some of the boss battles are utterly fantastic. I love the battle where a four-story tall monster comes to your village.

Cons: -This game came out in the US this year 2010, yet it's graphics belong to 2007.
-So many combat options, but few reasonable choices. There were only three spells out of the nine that I used at all. I only used about four weapons the whole game, even though you find around 25 different weapons in the game (amongst three categories). Broadswords move far too slowly, and short swords cap out at half the damage possible from broadswords or spears. Once I got the phoenix spear midway through the game, I never changed weapons again.
-Combat is too simple. All of the short swords use the same move set. Same with spears and broadswords.
