CheatCC says, "Nier will bring the world an action-adventure title unlike any other ever made by Square Enix. The dark, foreboding environments, the somber story, and the relentless, dire hero should make for an interesting ride. We're especially excited by the prospect of the action-packed, chained-attack gameplay that promises seriously fast-paced and skilled fun. Nier is essentially finished, but another five months of development should have this game honed to a razor's edge. Look for Nier to drop a little whoop-ass in May."
