Nier Review | Hard Reset

Nier has a ton of brilliant ideas. In a few places, and always without warning, the game shift perspectives and camera angles. While traveling through the world, you will come across an old mansion on the hill. At this point, the camera stops following you and goes to a fixed position waiting for you to move around and then you say to yourself, “when did this become Resident Evil?” In another part of the game, you move across platforms like you would in a 2d side scroller. There is also a choose your adventure section, some rail shooting elements, and other out of place things that feel thrown in for no other reason than the designer was bored. (Nier, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5

Maybe the designer was bored, but I liked that different parts of the game played differently. I loved how that one place in the forest was a text adventure, for example. The way things continually changed kept it fresh.

And I loved the story and characters. The music is amazing, too.

... how do you call the game mediocre, give it a better than mediocre score, and praise virtually everything? I don't get it.
