Huge Nier Giveaway, Win Signed Copies

GamingUnion.net: "I've got fantastic news for all you action RPG fans out there, as we've teamed up with Square Enix to offer a monstrous giveaway for Nier in North America.

The game was released earlier in the year on PS3 and Xbox 360 and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It had a great story and one of the best soundtracks of this generation. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys RPGs.

That's why I'm so excited about this competition because we're giving away SIX signed copies of the game. Yes, six. There will be three on PS3 and 3 on Xbox 360."

Sounds like a neat contest. :)

It might sound weird, but Nier is one of the stand-out games for me this generation. I had really low expectations because Cavia were developing it, but while it wasn't amazing as a complete package, some parts of it were.

mephman2920d ago

Absolutely. I'd rank it up there as one of the best in the last 10 years.

yeah ur right the soundtrack and music was the best in my opinion .

Mutant-Spud2920d ago

I'm playing it at the moment, I think the dialogue and character interaction make it special.
The story is pretty dark in parts as well, bordering on Silent Hill levels of weirdness, the second half of the game is a lot more "adult" than the first.
The whole feel of Nier reminds me of FFXI,subdued and unhurried but with some really aggravating aspects, it takes forever to level up weapons for example.

I agree......great game....sidequests could be skipped, and the main story was a blast to play through, and was still pretty long without playing the side quests.

No, it does not sound weird mephman, because you are absolutely correct. Nier is one of the most exciting and original games I've played this gen.

I really loved the diversity in this game. Each dungeon transforms the gameplay into something different. One dungeon changes from 3D action to 2D sidescroller slash/shooter. Another one changes into a puzzle game, while another one into a text-adventure game. It's really neat.

And yeah, the soundtrack is kick-ass.

playing it now. the sound track is one of my favorites. i hope they have more side missions where popola and her sister sing togetther again. i just find myself stopping by the bar to hear her devola sing.

gameplay is pretty fun and story iss awesome. cavia always delivers on strange good stories (drakengard) with bullet witch as the exception.......dunno wat BW was even about....

"Nier is one of the most ... original games I've played this gen."
Every aspect of the game has been copied and pasted from other (good) RPGs, without even trying to hide it.

"I really loved the diversity in this game."
The diversity? Every boss, 90% of the puzzles, a majority of the enemies and even one or two of your magic abilities used the same attack. Firing red balls.

Most of the sidequests followed the same track, someone's run away/gone for a walk and gotten lost, go and find them... You get there and it turns out they're dead.

I'm not saying the game was all bad, the soundtrack was good.. although a little repetitive.
It just seemed to me as though so little polish went in to the game, I was disappointed.

The enemies especially, they could've done with far more effort on the design side, they looked like placeholders for enemies.
With the exception of that fat lizard, that was pretty good.

Yes it did copy things from other RPGs, but it also added its own ideas.

"The diversity? Every boss, 90% of the puzzles, a majority of the enemies and even one or two of your magic abilities used the same attack. Firing red balls."

Great, you just missed the whole point of what I said. Each dungeon was different; each one had a different style and gameplay.
