5.0 out of 5 stars Gloriously bizarre and wonderful game!, April 28, 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: NIER - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Ever since I had my first peek at trailers for this game I was intrigued to see what it was going to be like. I loved the overall look, and liken it to as if the Brother's Quay had just been tasked with designing a new Final Fantasy game.

Now that I've gotten to play it, I can't get over how amazingly fun it is to play. For fans of hack n' slash/beat 'em ups (Devil May Cry, Bayonetta, God of War) there is plenty there, but then how many of those games could you go fishing or slaughter nearby sheep for mutton? Also the games changing perspectives is daring and innovative, where you can be playing a standard 3D hack n' slash one moment, enter a room and you're now top down like the first Zelda for a while!

The story is engrossing, the visuals, while a bit on the rougher side for this gen, are beautiful in their own right, not unlike Shadow of the Colossus had in atmosphere. Overall, if you're looking for something different and to play a fantasy game unlike any you've probably ever played before, I can't recommend this game enough.

Buy this one. You won't regret it.

Good review. Would like to add that for older gamers all the retro throw backs in this game make it so much better. Prince of Persia 2D side scroller, top down Zelda-esque adventure/puzzle solving and the Isometric Hunter type games.
The humour is one to look at for because it just won't quit and it rarely misses. Grimoire Wiess is an absolute blast to have around and I'm almost convinced that he is voiced by Simon Prebble the voice of the computer from Courage the Cowardly Dog.

Weiss is actually voiced by Liam O'Brien, voice of Akihiko (Persona 3), Gaara (Naruto), and quite a few other notable characters.
Then again, Simon Prebble could be an alias of his. Don't know, since I haven't checked. :3
Great review, by the way! I agree with it completely.
