NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams review

  • Flying is fun and purdy
  • Great soundtrack
  • Octopaw!
  • Playing as Will and Hanna
  • A few ugly areas
  • Kid touching

Dec 18, 2007

Consider this Sonic Team's official pinch: You're not dreaming. After over a decade of fevered anticipation, a new NiGHTS is finally here. Few they may be, fans of the original Sega Saturn game have always held the franchise in the highest regard, and to that proud brood we can happily say that everything you loved about Into Dreams is here to behold on the Wii's NiGHTs: Journey of Dreams. Majestically soaring through hallucinatory landscapes with the power of (slightly) unrestrained flight makes the jump masterfully.

Essentially, NiGHTS is almost a sidescroller, but you can now maneuver beyond the doldrums of left and right, launching headlong into the world of up, down, and everything in between. From the lovably odd character designs, to a soundtrack that's equal parts soaring and soothing; everything re-imagined, or inspired by the original game is just as endearing as ever. Bounding through the air, collecting orbs while linking plentiful varieties of loops and rings, is still wonderful beyond compare. And to that extent, Sega has cranked out one of the most distinctive and charming titles available on any console.

    I can't believe no one ever commented on this review. Sad that this game hasn't gotten much recognition at all. I'm really excited to see this series brought back and doing well. I've been a big fan of the NiGHTS series since the first demo came out on Sega Saturn way back in the day. I'm definitely going to pick this up and hope to see more NiGHTS installments in the future. Although I fear that this game probably didn't get enough recognition or sales to warrant sequels or a series...
