None of the magic that made the Saturn classic a beloved memory

Summary: Journey of Dreams tries to be too much and thus deviates too far from the NiGHTS formula. Only a few stages of the game mirror the original's gameplay, but even those stages fail to replicate the score attack gameplay that made the original NiGHTS so unique. What had been a score attack quasi racing game has now become a run-of-the-mill platformer. Although I purchased two copies of this game upon its release, kind of a thank you to Sega, Saturn fans, STAY AWAY!
Summary: The story is fine as are the graphics. But the game play is piss poor. You just play the same levels over and over in different context. The in-game cinematics can't be skipped which is a problem because you have to listen to pretty much the same stuff twice because of the dual storyline.
Summary: Seriously, no one would buy this game if it was the price of a standard Wii game. That being said, $10 is about what this game is worth. The controls are a bit wonky, the story a bit cheesy, but there's actually a lot to do in the game and it's worth a single play through. If you remember that you get what you pay for, you won't feel so bad about the purchase!
Summary: Im 13 and my uncle bought this game for me for my birthday, this was the first nights game i have ever owned. I started playing this but didnt get past the first level! i found this game really boring and really dificult. If , like me, you have never had a nights game before and get frustrated easily then dont buy this game. Im sure that if your a big nights fan you will really enjoy this game.
Conclusion: i really enjoyed the saturn original but i was so very dissapointed in this latest installment. I think this game may be more appealing and suitable to younger ppl. However the controls using the wii remote are awful to say the least and i dont think the game is much better using the classic controller or a gamecube controller.
Conclusion: ome gamers have always treasured their collection of games, never wishing to part with it. In each of these collections, there will always be one which has had a cult following. A game that will always have its fans, however bad it may have been. The original NiGHTS game was one such game, which means that it's a shame for me to say that the Wii version is... bad.
