IncGamers: Nier Hands-On

Incgamers' Tim McDonald takes a look at Square Enix's action RPG, Nier, with fairly positive results:

"Nier is not what I was expecting, but then, I kind of think that's the point. Yosuke Saito, the game's executive producer, told me that it was a Japanese game, designed specifically for the western audience by Japanese people. Ignoring the fact that it might be interesting to deconstruct Nier and try to work out what this says about the Japanese gaming industry's perception of us as consumers, you'd think that this would have tipped me off that I shouldn't expect the normal."

Hehe, very interesting. I like the idea to actually deconstruct Nier and try to work out what this says about the Japanese gaming industry's perception of us as western consumers.

The graphics aren't that great but the storyline sounds interesting.

Isn't there a man trapped in a girl's body in this game or something?

She is a hermaphrodite because she is possessed by a male spirit. Kind of why she acts insane and curses like a sailor sometimes. This is going to be kind of a spiritual successor to Cavia's Drakengard. In that it promises to be very dark and even bordering on completely mad at points. That is of course part of why it will be so special and unlike anything else that is out at the moment.

Looks good, regardless.
