wow, fast price drop.

Extremely fast price drop. Hotness ensues.

Bingo!

Big Money, Big Prizes, I love it!!!!!

MM

P.S reviews here: metacritic.com/gam…ier

Awesome price, but reviews suggest this isn't the greatest game.

Massive pity, seemed to have a lot of potential.

But is it any good?

Reviews are a bit....meh.

Average reviews at Gamespot though users scores are higher:

Hmm, I think I wait until it's sub-£10 for this title...

Worth noting though that CEX website says they buy for £21 so money to be made even if you dont want to play the thing!

I'm tempted to do the same. I can see this game dropping as quickly as Dark Void did.

This game does actually look pretty good though. Apparently the story is good and it looks to be quite similar to Zelda in terms of gameplay.

Definitely seems to be rough around the edges with its sub par graphics though. But I really don't care about that.

Beat me to it by a minute andy!

Good video to get an impression of the gameplay in Nier, to me it looks rather awful.

cex give £21 for it

The pros:

A lot of fun

The cons:

Graphics aren't great
A fair few niggles

I'd say this was a fair price.

I've never heard of it.... good sign :-D

CEX gives only £12 cash now...first time i have seen them changing their prices so swiftly.

Not any more, they just dropped the prices, prob saw this thread. now £12 cash lol

Cheers for this, can't really go wrong for £15, I'll give it a look after my FF8 replay.

The few that bought "Stormrise" would probably disagree with you there

BFN,

fp.

This game is pretty horrible; I rented it and it already felt like a grind in the first hour. Lots of go here kill 20 of the same enemy then come back and repeat at a slightly different ,but still washed out, environment.

Also, the fishing mini-game is stupid,

cancelled after reading reviews, cheers

I'm playing this game and i love it. It is flawed, but seriously brimming with brilliant ideas and creativity. The writing is really good as well.

trying to cancel mines too game looks pants.

I could have sworn I saw this for £40 in Game only last week!

I wonder if such a huge price drop is because they know it's bad...

Jeez that game looks boring as hell. Glad I didn't order....

http://www.joystiq.com/2010/05/03/nier-review-fail/pretty much says it all



He's fishing in the wrong place. I did that for about 20 minutes then had a look on the net. Go to a different beach and you catch the fish in seconds. That reviewer has been flamed pretty badly for his fail.

My quick view, havent finished it yet though.

Graphics - mainly very very average, boss fights are a bit better.
Music - very good at times, but also very annoying at others when it gets repetetive
Gameplay - fighting mechanics are fine in a hack n slash/magic way, some tasks are dull dull dull, some boss fights were pretty good.
Story - has me wanting to find out more, not something I often feel in a game.

Overall I'd say it's very much a love it or hate it game. If you can ignore the graphics and concentrate on the gameplay and story there is plenty of potential there as you have to go through it a few times to get all the story.

I'll not give a full blown recommendation, it wont be everyones thing, but have a read up on some reviews and users views before just thinking how awful it looks.

i could have told you it would happen - cex aint silly they monitor game prices on price comparison sites, they are a business.

as for the drop - it happened with dark void too - so probably as bad as that.

I managed to cope with FF13 so I should be fine, I have read around about the reviews, the worst ones first then the better ones, and it seems like it's SE trying to do something new again, but with the hero not seeming like an archetype it seems quite interesting, though I can see the mission type things irritating me.

The whole doing the game more than once to get more story did seem quite interesting to me, trophies don't really persuade me to re-play over and over, but finding out more, maybe.
Seeing as FF13 focused on graphics and got away with some good reviews I'm looking forward to a game that doesn't cash in on amazing graphics and skip everything else.
