VGR writes: "Nothing is as it seems in Nier. Assume the role of the unyielding titular protagonist, Nier, in his quest to discover a cure for his daughter who is infected with the Black Scrawl virus. With powerful allies and a mysterious book, Nier encounters things that will confound even the mightiest of warriors. The plot for Nier is decent and does just enough to keep you going through the 20+ hour game, but it does take a while to get going and some may not just be patient enough for that. They also add in some rather irritating transparent black boxes during cutscenes which kills any atmosphere or enjoyment of the rather good plot".
