I pity any poor sap who wasted hard earned money on this game. A friend of mine who is obsessed with Square and Final Fantasy games did.

lol I logged in to Disagree with you.

The game story, music and characters are amazing.

Gameplay could been a bit more polished, but it's the perfect mix of action and bullet hell, which adds a lot to it.

I actually regret not buying it.

Simon_Brezhnev2730d ago

lol im with you Shadow Nier is a damn good game music and story.

Lavalamp2730d ago

Nier was awesome! I don't regret my purchase one bit.

coryok2730d ago

The thing with Nier is that everything about the game was great with the exception of the game play and the lack of polish. Pretty much every review out there(even the negative ones) agreed that had SE given the game the amount of attention and polish they give their more mainstream games like Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy it would have been a much better game.

Which is true. The characters and story didn't match the lack of polish and refinement of more main stream games. It should have been much more polished from the get go and the fact that no one at SE saw that is quite sad to be honest.

I think they should surely give the game another go and this time give it the attention it deserves.

One of the most underrated games this gen, and the best title avalaible under SE' s brand.

I just hope that Cavia can get a decent budget if they do a sequel.

EDIT: btw I think jap version main character > usa/ue version main character.

christheredhead2730d ago

i agree. it was a grossly underrated title. i picked it up for 15 not expecting much but it was a pretty awesome game. great music, great characters and all around something different to play.

Fulensenca2730d ago

Yeah, boss fights are among the best of the last few years I think. A very unique gaming experience, atmosphere is what I liked more.

Lavalamp2730d ago

Cavia was disbanded and absorbed into AQ Interactive. Not to mention, Yoko Taro, the director, resigned. If there was another Nier, Square Enix would be making it entirely by themselves. But I'll remain opitmistic and believe that more Nier would be a great thing.

Fulensenca2730d ago

Wow, I didn' t know Cavia was disbanded, I just tought they had some resigned.

Aww ... I don' t thrust SE anymore, I can not have a positive mindset if I think that Nier 2 would be totally in SE' s hands ... expecially if they lack even the old good director.

Bubbles + for informative post!

Nier's producer, Yosuke Saito, works at Square Enix. If they put him in charge and outsource Taro, they might at least have some strong creative direction for another game. I think they can make it work if they put enough effort into it, but who knows what the future holds for Nier? It apparently sold pretty darn well in Japan, so I wouldn't be surprised if SE decided to capitalize on the franchise. Last I heard, they were at least looking into more Nier titles (could be a sequel or even a spin-off).

Gotta check this one out seems pretty decent.

Maybe he should run through all games Square-Enix has made since Squaresoft and Enix merged and he might see why everyone wants him fired.
