Other than it's vaguely original-sounding name, Nier is a slack, somewhat derivative action-adventure game from the studio that brought you Final Fantasy. At least, that's how they should pitch it. It might not be very good, but we made Final Fantasy, so reward us for your countless hours of enjoyment with your capital. For shame. However, if you like the idea of a Westernized Japanese hack-and-slash, hop on over to Amazon and grab yourself a copy of Nier for under a tenner.
