If you only buy one video game, this should be it.

Summary: I cannot recommend this game highly enough. It's Cavia's swan song, and they did a magnificent job of it, even though they got shafted by Square-Enix on the marketing end. SqEnix released Resonance of Fate at the same time, and that was developed and published in-house, so it got the marketing blitz...
Summary: I play video games for their story and here is my top five now that I've finished Nier: 1. Xenogears 2. Xenosaga series 3. Nier 4. Planescape: Torment 5. Final Fantasy X This game is a MASTERPIECE when it comes to the story and never have I seen a game tell its story the way Nier does.
Summary: I am a a huge fan of RPGs and this JRPG is just beautiful. The storyline is a bit different from the japanese version in reference to the big brother turned cool dad figure but don't let the missing bishie stop you. The father relationship in the game adds to the tragedy of the story.
Summary: The story and gameplay get dull after just a few hours. The game's concept is great, but the execution is poor. Very repetitive, bland environments, bad voice acting. Really glad I did not pay full price for this when it came out.
