"Nights is a creative, challenging experience that's just as hard to peel away even today, and serves to remind how brilliant Sega was in its prime."

I did not grow up with the Saturn (or the Dreamcast), so I was kinda looking forward to playing this game for the first time. I honestly did not expect much from the gameplay going into it. I committed to getting all the A-ranks and achievements, and I ended up having a lot of fun (and some frustration) doing it.

First of all, I was suprised with the game's soundtrack and sound design. I absolutely love the soundtrack and have been listening to it all week. NiGHTS' character design is amazing, and although the 3-D cutscenes are looking dated, I had to remind myself that this game came out in 1996. All things considered, I'm pretty impressed by this game, and there's no denying that the ending, with the credits and the song, definitely put a little tear in my eye. They also included some unlockable goodies (cutscenes, artwork, an interview with the creator, and a different game mode which is mostly a reskin).

Aftering experiencing NiGHTS into dreams, I definitely wish I had grown up with this game. If you're into the SEGA style of games or story-telling (like Sonic Adventure stuff), then you might give this one a try.

AUDIO: Charming                                                        AESTHETIC: Surreal
MEMORABILITY: Bizarre                                             WORTH: Discount

PROS: Port seems to have very few issues. New textures look very nice, but classic version is available to be played as well. Dream themes go beyond mere trippy visuals and mimic actual facets from thoughts and anxieties.

CONS: FPS caps at 30, (Not a problem for me but worth mentioning for those who are irritated by things like that) the game itself has very little instruction. If you're unfamiliar with the gameplay for NiGHTS, you're going to be confused. Controller settings reset often for me, I have not figured out why. Control-style and 3D graphics are obviously a bit dated (What did you expect?)

OVERALL: I can see why this game is both cult and classic; it's not very friendly to newcomers and by today's standards, the score-based style gameplay would only appeal to a selective audience. But it's still very fun once you've gotten a grasp on it, as it's lenience for low passing scores allows you to enjoy the story without necessarily being good at it.

                                                    
SCORE: 7/10

Game created by Sonic Team for SEGA Saturn. You can really feel the matter of speedrunning and going for perfect scores, espacialy when you have limited time. It has both remastered and oldschool version of the game. I prefer remastered one. I might some day try to master it though it's not easy.

Pros:
- Good game for both casuals (just to pass levels) and hardcores (fully complete);
- Sonic fans might like it;
- Mechanic at first confusing but later on easy to understand;
- Great music.

Cons:
- Honestly I don't know what's bad in this game... IMO I don't like kids in this game but without them the plot would be in chaos.

I know, I've only played for minutes, but my review is for my history playing it on Sega Saturn. Looooved it! Truly a childhood memory. I used to just like running the pretty fields in human mode until the clock caught me XD

Music - Amazing (Check it out on youtube at the very least)
Graphics - Classic Saturn graphics, so nothing modern really
Gameplay - Awesome, with two different sets of levels to play
Memories - Priceless

Awesome, charming and beautiful. It's a platform game without a platform, because you fly all over the scenario. The gameplay is speedy and the soundtrack is the best I ever listened in my lifetime of gaming. If SEGA had continued following this formula, we could still have better titles like this nowadays. It's easily one of my favorite games. Better played with a controller.
