BT writes: If you asked a dozen different gamers about their opinions on Cavia’s Nier, you would probably get a dozen very distinct answers. It’s an action-RPG that is both medieval fantasy and post-apocalyptic. It’s a hack ‘n’ slash, but it also contains elements of bullet hell, survival horror, and even a text adventure. It’s terribly unpolished and unrelentingly depressing, yet still poignant and hauntingly beautiful. Depending on who you ask, it’s either a cult classic, an unbearable slog, or an unappreciated masterpiece.
However, there is one thing that everyone can agree on: The music is gorgeous.
