5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and very enjoyable!, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nier (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
There is nothing about this game I dislike. Absolutely nothing.
There are also a few things that set it apart from many other games.

Audio: 10/10
+The soundtrack is absolutely wonderful.
+The voice acting is very impressive.
+The sound effects are satisfying. Think 'getting a hit marker' sound from Call of Duty satisfying.

Gameplay: 8/10
+The way the game handles (controls, combat, etc) is well executed.
+Finding/upgrading weapons.
+Imbuing your attacks with additional effects via collectibles.
+Combat felt rewarding, and spells were fun to use.
+The boss fights didn't feel like repetitive 'hit the weak spot' copy and paste jobs.
+Some parts of the game have drastically altered gameplay, which makes for a refreshing experience.
-The control scheme overall took a little bit of getting used to.
-Whilst possible to defeat strong enemies at a low level, it relied on extremely tedious and sometimes frustrating tactics.
-THE FISHING MINIGAME IS VERY POORLY EXPLAINED. Once I found a YouTube video telling me exactly how to fish, it was rewarding and enjoyable. I was almost single-handedly put off of the game because of the fishing minigame and how it was badly handled by the in-game (and manual) instructions.

Storyline: 9/10
+The game doesn't pull emotional punches. There are a lot of moments that tug on the heartstrings or drive one to the edge of their seat (and maybe their tears).
+It's an easy story to follow, and doesn't require too much thought to properly enjoy. If you prefer detective/mystery games, you might find the story a bit bland.
+A multitude of lightly touched-upon characters that leave you feeling a mixture of satisfaction and despair at the lack of closure. I personally found almost every character remarkably interesting in some way. (My favourite was probably the Lighthouse Lady.)
-The first half of the game has a lot of story, but if you're a perfectionist (or enjoy achievements) there are a lot, and I mean A LOT of fetching/grinding/seemingly illogical tasks set out before you. (Collecting mutton, 'farming' minigame, 'fishing' minigame, etc...)
