Nier Retrospective

Rice Digital takes a look back at Nier, one of the most underrated and underplayed games of the last generation. (Nier, PS3, Xbox 360)

That was an awesome read. The same guy did a great Drakengard retrospective in two part about a week ago. Brilliant stuff. Nier was such a great game, but critics totally overlooked it's heart and soul.

Nier is the only game which has ever made me emotional during a cutscene, it's genuinely sad in parts.

Nier started well, but then fell in to the usual predictable fantasy setting. Shame..

I'm going to go ahead and guess you've never played it then. Or that you at least didn't play far enough to know why that is absolutely not the case.

Well, I guess we will have to disagree. Nier to me was one of those games you play, but at the same time you are praying that it will end so that you can play something else.

X-ender, you need to play Nier atleast twice because they not show all the story on 1st playthrough.

He needs to play it once, first. To think it fell flat, even after just one playing, is insanity.

Nier....incredible game! 5 endings. Music incredible too.

I lost hours just fishing! Lol

One of my most cherished memories of last gen was playing this game. I was hoping for something similar with Drakengard 3 but apparently it's not all really of the same calibre.

One of the most underrated games on last gen. Yes the graphic looks like early PS2 graphic. But the story, characters, and music are awesome. I had fun with the gameplay too, even though some side-quest a bit repetitive and the world a bit small.

Definitely one of the most underrated ps3 game of all time. Sure it has it's flaws & doesn't offer anything new, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Neir, not to mention the stellar soundtrack the game has.

I still rank this as one of the best action RPG titles on the ps3.
