NiGHTS: Old VS New video comparison

If you're familiar with the original game, the fight with Wizeman on Wii will confuse the hell out of you at first as you have to switch Persona Masks to beat him. But other than that, it's practically the same sequence. That's a good thing, though - and it's likely to send a tingle down the spine of any Sega fan when they see two NiGHTS getting ready to open a can of whup-ass on Wizeman.

As before, you must fly to the right towards him, past his attacks, then break his shield with the power of both children combined. You then have to turn as he moves to the left ready to start again with a differently-themed environmental barrage. We'll admit to being a bit crap at the Wii version at the moment compared to our crazy skills on the original (we know, modesty blah blah - but check out that 2.0 multiplier), but then we have had a decade to practise on that one.


With so many nods to the original, the Wii version is pure fan service. And while it's not quite as magical as the original, the variety and quality (for the most part) mean this is definitely worth a look, even if you're new to the strange little jester chap. Check out the review here.

Above: The design of Wizeman is the same as before - only now he talks in a demonic, slowed-down voice. Ooo, scary
