It's not easy being a father. It's even worse being a father who has to spend an eternity trying to find a cure for your sick daughter while being chased by evil demons that try to kidnap her. That's the plight of Nier, who abandons traditional parenthood when Yonah contracts a deadly disease known as the Black Scrawl.

It helps that Nier is a bit of a hard nut to crack, armed with a sword that slices through demons like butter. He's assisted in his search for a Black Scrawl cure by a cursed book called Grimoire Weiss. With his destiny tied to the book, Nier can upgrade his fighting skill and learn new abilities.

The story is one that involves multiple twists and turns, and it will be a plot that you will want to see through to the end, if only to make sense of it all. Formidable allies will join your cause, which is just as well because the monsters you face become ever greater. When teamwork and swordplay isn't enough, you can cast various spells that can help change the game in your favour.

Best described as an action-packed role playing game – all the hack and slash elements you would expect in a modern day brawler coupled with the same kind of experiences that is traditional of Square Enix titles – Nier will be one dark story that you will want to unravel.
