Summary: Well, I dreamed with a very well-done remake for NiGhts when I first heard about it on the Wii. The game is there. But SEGA, perhaps in a hurry, forgot to actually test the game's playability and controllers response accordingly. The controls response will put a poker face on you. People like me who had the opportunity to play NiGhts into Dreams (the original game for the SEGA Saturn and now reprogrammed for home PCs) didn't waited for much but at least better graphics...
Beautiful graphics and entertaining, but difficult!

Summary: The game was way too hard for my son when he was 5! I liked it, but it wasn't my type of game. I bought it thinking I could play it with my son, but that didn't happen. For older children and adults this is a neat game, but for smaller children, there is no way they can play!
Summary: Okay, so I got this game a little late. 3 years after its release. I never played the original, but I'm a sonic fan so I thought for $10.93 here on amazon, it was a rare, great oppurtunity. And in the end, I liked this game. So I guess I should just start out, when I first played this, I was dissapointed. The moment your character drops in the HUB world (Dream Gate), I couldn't believe my eyes. The graphics just looked so... bad.
Summary: As an original owner of both the sega saturn and Nights Christmas/Into Dream titles, I was pleased to see that Nights:Journey Of Dreams would continue off the legacy that it's original successor brought to the system. Those who have played this game before will notice similarities right away. The revamp of the original title music as well as the little egg-headed creatures named nightopians and others that fans of the original will appreciate.
Summary: UPDATE: I mistakenly said in my original review below that this is a remake of the Sega Saturn game, which is embarrassingly and horribly incorrect. This is an all new game made just for the Wii. Therefore I must lower my previously generious score of 3 stars to negative 72 stars. For a new game to look this old and consist of a single play mechanic of "press right on the analog stick" this game is an unforgivable travesty.
Summary: Now don't let the three stars throw you off. This game is creative, cute and not as easy as some might tell you. It's not omg complex but the levels are quite fun. From hunting the octo to saving nights and the boss battles. Will's story was kind of drawn out. How the owl and nights talk to him seems a bit crude and harsh as to how they treat 'Helen'. I say that because they are much kinder to her and a lot sweeter in their speech. The levels start out different aswell.
Summary: I have never played any of the Nights games before, and maybe that's my problem, but I had no idea what was going on in this game. Unlike many Wii games that overdo the tutorials, this one explained how to fly and then left me very confused as to what else I had to do. This took the fun out of the game, as it's not really a strategy/puzzle game as far as I could tell.
Summary: It has been well over 11 years since the acclaimed cult classic NiGHTS into Dreams by Sega's Sonic Team debuted on the Saturn. And now after countless rumors, endless petitions, and a series of long waits, its official follow-up has finally arrived but this time on Nintendo's console Wii. Even with its glaring faults it can still manage to rekindle memories of the original and perhaps spark interest in those who have never played NiGHTS before.
Conclusion: Nights for a long time now has been a one hit wonder, very much in the same way as Psychonauts, but the current attempt at bringing it back wasn't that good. The graphics are incredible but it sacrificed gameplay alot. Wii controls are rubbish unless you have a degree in stick waggling. Gameplay consists of flying around various stages spinning round monsters and going through rings that do bugger all to help you.
Conclusion: My Daughter was really looking forward to this game but after the bad press it got she dicided she didn't want it we went shopping and bought it pre-owned for 10 pounds after 10mins of playing she was almost in Tears because she couldn't control Nights and even the nunchuck control is very confusing!
