This is an action role-playing game in which players help Nier save his terminally ill sister from an infectious disease. Players explore a futuristic fantasy world, interact with characters, engage in various quests, and battle both humans and creatures (e.g., robots, mutant skeletons, organic shadows) in melee-style combat. Players use swords, spears, and lances to hack/slash at enemies, and a floating book to fire lasers from a distance. Battles are frenetic, often accompanied by explosions, screen-shaking effects, and large blood splatters that stain the ground. Bloodstains are also seen around several corpses. Some sequences depict additional acts of violence: a woman impaled through the chest by a giant spear; a giant shadow creature impaled by a wood column. The game contains some suggestive material: female characters wearing lingerie during battle; a character with partially exposed buttocks and breasts; close-up camera angles of characters' cleavage. The words “f**k,” “a*shole,” and "sh*t" are heard in the game.
