Goodnight, Aventheim

  • Excerpt: Originality is a valued trait in console RPGs; RPGamer feels that it's important enough to be one of its six graded sub-categories. Unlike the other categories however, a high score in this category isn't necessarily a positive thing, as much as it's treated as such. It's merely an indicator that the game in question is unlike other games in the field. Innovating too far can limit a game's popular reception or isolate diehard fans of the creative team's earlier work.

Knights in the Nightmare

Playstation Illustrated
21 September 2010
  • Excerpt: Though Knights in the Nightmare , a port of last year's DS game, comes with a number of graphical tweaks and a revamped tutorial, the changes end there. Anyone hoping for a massive revamp of the game's mechanics will be sorely disappointed. Don't take the comment as a knock on quality - just know you're in for a rocky time as you let the game completely absorb you in its charm and challenge. The first, and probably most obvious, upgrade is the visuals.

Let's Raise Some Havok

  • Excerpt: Knights in the Nightmare is the fourth in Sting's Dept. Heaven series, but only the third game in that series to actually see a release. Previous games in the series include Riviera: The Promised Land and Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone . The Dept. Heaven games are known for their unique gameplay systems, and Knights in the Nightmare furthers that creativity to the nth degree.

Knights in the Nightmare - NDS - Review

GameZone
28 June 2009
  • Excerpt: The DS has been home to plenty of turn-based strategy games, including ports and remakes, like Hoshigami Remix or Disgaea DS, and more original fare, such as Luminous Arc and Drone Tactics. For better or worse, though, these games have pretty much stuck to the genre standards set by games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem, with very little innovation. Enter Sting Entertainment, known in RPG circles for their uber-deep Dept. Heaven series.
