Currently playing Nier.
I liked it but thought it was overrated character and story-wise. The entire story is just a big collect-a-thon, with not a whole lot of character development or scenes that flesh out the background. There's more on NG+ with Kaine's backstory, and a few Shade stories, but more would've been nice. Things also seemed to be happening too fast sometimes; like Emil's relationship with the cast. We barely know this character and he acts like he's been us his whole life. Same thing with Nier and his relationship with Kaine by the Aerie. There wasn't enough time to flesh anything out, but again the game acts like they've known each other for a long time.
Speaking of Nier and Emil - they're really ho hum. Emil has a very sparse backstory and he's not that great of a character anyway. Nier is just very simple. I suppose that works in contrast to the slightly more complex stories with Shades, but he's still not a strong character. Kaine is the best character by default, plus she actually gets a backstory even if it's just through text.
The villains were lame. The Shadowlord is like a non-character. He's just a copy of Nier, and just as simple, but now an antagonist. Devola and Popola are also very simple, but make no sense. There's not much reason for them to fight the main cast. I also thought it was weird how Popola starts whining and freaking out that the party kills Devola. Well, why did you instigate a fight with us in the first place? WTF lol.
The best parts of the story are the little Shade and his robot and the wolves.
Other than that, the soundtrack is good. Didn't think it was *great*, but I liked about all the tracks. My favorite track was probably Gods Bound by Rules. The boss in the Barren Temple was the best one too.
The gameplay was fine. The combat isn't exceptional but I didn't have much of a problem with it. The game had too much backtracking though (at least Nier runs fast) and needed a better fast travel method than just the boats. Also the sidequests were bad...I only did 65% of them. The game would've been better if there were more meaningful sidequests, possibly elaborating on more Shade stories and stuff that happened in the past which is lightly touched upon in the main story.
I think I'm gonna post this on GAF.

Before the fall, they didn't need to be guarded from the Tree of Life. I think you're confusing the Tree of Life with the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. 3) He had a command though "You may eat of all trees in the garden, but the...

Yes, the pink unicorn having a creation story would make it more valid. So god is some kind of fireball? Cool. Since we know nothing about him (although in Exodus, revealed as Yahweh, he's described...
padib said: Yes, way to go God. He didn't create robots he could just bend to his will, he gave us the free choice. Way to go GOD!

With no security I might add. -Speaking of security, after Adam and Eve ate from the Tree of Knowledge and got kicked out, God...
