Nier gets some screenshots n’ that

The official Web site for Square Enix’s brand new action game Nier has been updated with a bunch of fresh screenshots. Most of you remain cynical about this title, and rightly so, since it comes from the same people responsible for Bullet Witch and Drakengard 2. Regardless, I have a massive bonk-on for big, dumb action titles, so I’m going to give it a chance.

The screens look rather simplistic at the moment, with rather uninspiring environments. This is atypical for a Square Enix game, which usually looks beautiful if nothing else. Hopefully these are just early shots and we’ll see it looking a lot better in the future. For now, what do you think? Have you had enough of hack n’ slash games, or are you willing to give Nier a chance?
