One of the greatest games of all time. I'm surprised NiGHTS hasn't been very popular recently, or ever, because it definitely deserves a little more recognition for the beauty and creativity of the game. Controls are easy to learn, and I'll often find myself playing for hours at a time trying to beat my old scores or just releasing steam with a boss run. The characters are colorful, easy to love, and full of personality! This is a feel-good game!

I'll be honest, the first time I saw NiGHTS as a young gamer raised on Nintendo consoles, it was in the NiGHTS into Dreams pinball table alongside Sonic in Sonic Pinball Party for the GameBoy Advance. Needless to say, having just recently been introduced to Sonic, and having a mindset that most girls didn't play videogames, NiGHTS appeared to me as SEGA's lady-Sonic character... the feminine colors of pink and purple hadn't always appealed to me.

Many years later, revisting some of my older games, I picked up Sonic Pinball again, and I thought to myself: "I remember the NiGHTS table having something the Sonic one didn't: Bosses! You're older and much more skilled now, so why don't we give this a go?" After a few practice rounds, I'd cleared my way through all 6 tables, their Nightmaren bosses, and eventually unlocking the secret NiGHTS "Twin Seeds" table, which led to my first encounter with (and triumph over) Wizeman the Wicked.

I was hooked. I wanted to learn about the REAL NiGHTS. After finding very few videos on Youtube over the original NiGHTS into Dreams, I did my own research, and found the game was available on Steam for just $10. At this point in time, I didn't have a Steam account, nor was I interested in TF2 or Garry's Mod, Counter-Strike, any of these legendary titles I'd seen friends playing in the past.

That's right:

The whole reason I made a Steam account was for NiGHTS.

So the next time you see me on your team in TF2, or the next time you see me post a Garry's Mod animation, you can thank the whimsical dream-jester, and the geniuses who've brought it to life.

This is one of those franchises that SEGA really needs to bring back. Great Gameplay, Great characters and wonderful music. I almost teared up listening to "Dreams. Dreams" during the credits.

All I'm saying is, play this game. It is worth the price it's sold for.

This is one of those games that you hear about every now and then, and all the buzz about it makes you really curious. You want to try it out, but never had the chance nor time to. But one day, you have some spare cash, and see this game on the home page. You decide to buy it and see if it's as good as people make it out to be...and, oh man, did it blow me away!

How do I properly descirbe NiGHTS Into Dreams? Well, it really is just like a dream!

The visuals are colourful and imaginitive! The music is nothing short of beautiful! The game controls extremely darn well! And the gameplay is something that, while not everyone's cup of tea, is absolutely fun in my opinion! That's just the basics of the game.

The game truly is an experience!

I can usually tell that whether or not a game truly is a gem by how often I find myself smiling while playing it, and needless to say, I smiled all the way through this game!

If there is one thing that I feel is a bit of a flaw, it's the length. This game is rather short. However...

This specific version includes the original game, a graphically remastered version, Christmas NiGHTS, and a ton of unlockables, all of which is only $10. I don't know about you, but all of that for only $10 is quite honestly a steal!

So overall, while it might not be for everyone, but for what it is, it does it's job very well. It's a beatiful, imaginative, and just overall fun experience and I am glad to have finally gotten the chance to play it. It's easily one of my favourite games of all time now! I highly recommend NiHTS into Dreams!

Two words to describe this game: Absolutely Beautiful.

This game is a blast to go through. Graphics are nice, the music is outstanding, and the gameplay can be quite addicting. The game is rather short if you just want to get to the ending with both characters, but is much longer if you're going for the highest rank in each Dream (including the Christmas Dreams levels), and also to top your own scores each time. I highly recommend this game to anyone.

One of the first console games to use an analogue stick controller and did so wonderfully. A Sonic Team and SEGA classic through and through. More than just a port but rather a respectfully remade tribute to the Saturn's answer to Mario 64. You can switch between the original Sega Saturn graphics or play with new models and textures that enhance the visual quality of the game without changing the artistic direction. This game is fast, bursting with vibrant color and catchy music that you'll never forget. My only complaint is that the game only runs the at the console's original speed of 30 frames per second. If you grew up in the golden age of gaming then NiGHTs Into Dreams should be in your collection.
