Game plays very well with an analog controller, You need the XBOX 360 Controller or your out of luck playing with a keyboard it wont work well. - However I feel that this game is locked at 30 FPS and you cant achieve higher performance even though you have the higher end hardware. The good news though its very smooth and fluid and stays true to the original Sega Saturn game. The only complain that I have is that in Sega Saturn Mode- the game is not a true emulation - its a remake using texture mapping without filtering - nothing more. I guess Saturn Emulation is hard to achieve. While there are many emulators out there they require a high system requirement and even at that you don't get accurate results. Nonetheless though , if you want a trip down memory lane , its here for you , but if you know how to beat the Sega Saturn game, you will finish this in mere moments......

Having been a fan of NiGHTS since its original release back on the Sega Saturn, I can tell you a LOT of love went into this port. In addition to the original game itself, included also is the rare and coveted demo disc Christmas NiGHTS, opening up unlockables and a varient of Spring Valley primarily centered around Christmas (though the theme sometimes changes depending on the holiday/date, such as April Fools, Halloween, summer, Valentines, etc). This alone makes this port worth it to the die-hard fan, but on top of this, you've given the option to switch between the original Sega Saturn graphics, or the graphics of the formally Japan-only PS2 remake.

For those of you unfamiliar with this title, you can choose between to play as either Claris or Elliot, two children whom by day struggle to overcome their fears, and by night aid NiGHTS in overthrowing the king of all Nightmare, Wizeman. As you fly through linear circular stages, you'll collect orbs and other goodies, destroying captures that hold Ideya - raw dream energy - that had been stolen from the two children. Its story is left intentionally vague to encourage the player's own imagination to interpret the events. There are also many goodies and easter eggs to be found hidden around, including the curious Nightopian AI (these being creatures that breed, grow, die and can even hybridize with enemies within the level). At the time of its original release this game offered groundbreaking techniques in graphics and gameplay style, giving it its own place in history and recognized by many as an unofficial secondary mascot to Sonic Team.

And now for the downside. Unfortunately, the game is incredibly short and can be 100%'d in only a few hours, though the extras help to provide some replay value. Also, while the controls, for the most part, are pretty tight there are areas where NiGHTS becomes difficult to control - particularly areas like the bobsled, mermaid and rail portions from their respective levels.

Still, despite those problems, for the price and what it comes with, I would consider it well worth it and highly recommend it to anyone interested in a timeless masterpiece and a piece of gaming history. If you're still unsure, I would say to consider waiting for a sale. Either way, NiGHTS into Dreams is well worth having in your collection.

This is the energy and wierdness we've come to expect from our Eastern friends, epitomised in this action title that captures the old ideas of gaming - timed, score based gameplay and boss patterns and weakspots. Highly reccommended.

NiGHTs into dreams is a port of the classic SEGA Saturn gem from 1996. The goal is simple and requires capturing stolen Ideya by collecting at least 20 blue orbs and destroing the capsules. The sooner you destroy the capsule, the more time you have to collect more points before the time runs out. Once you've collected all four Ideya, NiGHTs is warped into a boss battle. There are four stages for the two characters, Claris & Elliot. The fourth stage for each character, Twin Seeds is the same and in order to unlock it you need at least all C's on previous stages. The game is short, but sweet. However, it can be a real challenge to get all A's on the stages, which is required to unlock the Christmas NiGHTs. SEGA has given the game a nice HD improvement, thus boosting more colorful and vivid visuals than the Saturn version. You can play the game in two modes, HD & Saturn. The keyboard controls for this game can take some adjusting and I would reccomend getting a Xbox 360 controller since this game was really meant to be played with a controller. This is indeed a good port of a very good game, probably Sonic Team's only masterpiece. Truely a gem.

40 hours of playing NiGHTS into Dreams. All I can say is I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!
The gameplay may look boring, inane, or weird but if you give it a try, I promise you will love it. If you are a SEGA or Sonic fan, you have no excuse not to purchase it. It should be illegal not to buy it if you adore sonic.

NiGHTS will always be my favorite game. I've never had so much fun playing a video game.
The soundtrack is just gorgeous. The album version is better! It comes with two alternative songs for each level.

The gameplay is difficult to explain, to be honest. Your objective is to collect 20 orbs as fast as you can. With the reminding time, your goal is to gain as much points as possible by flying through hoops without losing your chain.

My only comaplains are the boss battles, 6 long levels (around ten minutes long) and locked at 30FPS. In addition, I did not like the boss battles. They may be advance during their time, but I found them ambiguous to beat.

However, eventually, you will want to try again and again to beat your scores. NiGHTS has that feeling like playing a Sonic game.

It comes with bonus features like the SEGA Saturn version and a remastered christmas theme of Spring Valley.

Overall, if you see this game on sale, its a must purchase game. You will love it!

My steam friends comments on game:

"I really like it actually. I usually dig Sega games, and this one came through. It's very unique! Loved it!"

I STILL LOVE THIS GAME TODAY. :D
