Rated 5 out of 10 by Zarvanis NiGHTS, flying freak.
'NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams' is a stupid game, and has a stupid hero. First of all, take a nice long look at the cover. The first thing you think is, "NiGHTS is a girl." BUT NOPE! NiGHTS is a GUY. I'm not kidding. When I first got this game I though it was okay. It took a while to get use to, but it seemed alright. But after a while I realized how ungodly stupid this crap is. Who wants to play a game about little kids in a dream realm with an owl and a flying she-male. The controlls are a pain, and the rings are so hard to go through. The characters are really bland and cheesy. The animation is too over exaggerated, but the graphics aren't bad. The music was annoying, and the voices are really stupid too. A lot of the bosses and challenges were a huge pain in the bunny, and took 3-10 tries to beat. The final boss was lame. Sometimes it was super easy, other times it was hard. It's weird how that worked. Overall, this game isn't horrible, but it's not good either.
Rated 0 out of 10 by SuGamer I got to get a Wii
For those that say the screenshots are from the original game, you're totally wrong! I still own a Saturn and a boat load of games, including Nights and the analog controller made for it and can tell you that those are NOT screenshots of the Saturn game. Nights was NEVER intended to be a totally 3D game, so let's put that straight. It was created by the Sonic Team to be a sort of flying Sonic type game. This was way before Sonic went totally 3D. Nights helped show off the power the Saturn had and sold extremely well considering the Saturn's lack sales compared to the Playstation's. I loved the first one and will probably eventually pick up a Wii system so I can play this one. BTW, if anyone still owns the original Saturn game, you can pop it into your PC's optical drive and view some CGI pics. I had one as my wallpaper for a long time.

I can't believe it the Wii! gets A comeback for Nights and its all new! Journey Of Dreams! Sweet! its been like 11 years since a new one has been talked about for America and the rest of the world! And for those of you who don't know what was Nights it was game where you had to use a specially designed controller made by Sega ! Well you didn't have to use it but it helped alot! Anyway the game was like Sonic The Hedgehog mixed with the Upcoming SuperMario Galaxy Wii! The game was a platform game you could/Fly/ stop flying or gliding and explore getting Coins like a Mario game..But it was more then that Bosses yes there was.Wow 1995-96?..Anyway Buy it! Its going to sell quick! Now I can only hope Sega remakes the Streets Of Rage Series/Or Part 4! on the Wii or PS2,PS3,Xbxo360!
Rated 9 out of 10 by WisemanEpsilon Simply amazing.
Yes, the game is kiddie. No, the voice acting isn't that great. This doesn't change the fact that the game is simply amazing, creative, and, most importantly, FUN! Remember that? Remember when gaming was about fun instead of calling people names over Xbox Live? You get to play as a purple, androgynous (NiGHTS is neither male or female, stop arguing) jester thing where you fly around playing, basically, classic Sonic The Hedgehog but flying. You get a rank at the end and there are four endings, 2 for each kid, so you always have a reason to come back to the game and try to do better. The music is pure happiness. A full orchestra playing some of the most memorable music you will hear in a game. Buy this game. Worth the money.

NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams is absolutely one of my favorite games on the Wii. Not only does it have really pretty environments, but an amazing soundtrack as well. Although the game could be a little longer it gave me something to do for about a week, and later on I found myself coming back to it. It has splendid fully voice acted cut-scenes. The game also has a nice, colorful cast of characters. You can play the game in either Will or Helen's story, which are two children who have terrible nightmares. They then find themselves in the magical world of Nightopia where they find NiGHTS. NiGHTS is like the key for the children to overcome their nightmares... Yeah, it's a little confusing to explain! Although the story it tells does not always make complete sense, I still found it very interesting. For example, why the heck does NiGHTS have to collect keys for cages that have nothing in them? And then there's Reala, one of the main villains. He just traps NiGHTS in cages and then leaves, totally allowing one of the children from the game to save him! Anyways, I gave this game a 9/10, only because it could have been just a little longer... I do have a question though: Why have all these other reviewers given this game 1/10's? It certainly does not deserve that.
Rated 0 out of 10 by A Customer The Game is Scarey? I Dont Think So...
I have played the original Nights Into Dreams, and I do not recall anything being creepy enough to cause any kind of nightmares. I dont know what was so horrific. I remember it being a totally awesome game with pretty colors, awesome music, and great controls. The story was very cool also. Every person has different likes and dislikes and is allowed to voice their opinion, but Im just baffled on this one. All I can say is, dont let some of these comments deter you from enjoying the sequel. If you have a really young kid, then maybe be a little cautious. if you have or are a teenager or older, I would think you should not have a problem with anything being found scarey. Pleasant Dreams! :)
Rated 0 out of 10 by KAISERKONG A must-buy for fans of the original
The original was released in 1996 for the Sega Saturn and despite the paltry system sales, Nights managed to be a huge success for the Saturn and Sonic Team. The game followed the dreams of two children who took control of their dreams through the "Nights" suit and battled the Nightmaren who were bent on destroying their dreams. The flight mechanics of the game were unmatched for any Sega game at that time and there have been no other games to compare Nights to since it was released. It's great to see that Nintendo recognizes an incredible IP such as Nights and is willing to give it a chance. Just give this game a try and you will see what all the hype is about. You won't be disappointed!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Diddy645 A true Sega classic.
The NiGHTS game on the Sega Saturn is a classic Sega game and NiGHTS: JoD is a great sequel to the original. The unique gameplay is easy to master after a just a few levels.
The graphics on the cutscenes are amazing and the backgrounds and character renders are not that bad either, especially for a wii game. The music is outstanding as well. Just listen to the song from the Bellbridge stage.
The story, while a little childish, may not be for everyone, but the gameplay is so great that it shouldn't matter. The final boss battle is epic, though.
The game is cheap, so it is definitely worth it. I still come back to play this game some times even after I beat it.
Rated 0 out of 10 by NeoKnuckles It's very rare to find a promising sequel, this is one
After more than a decade, one of Sonic Team's biggest and most requested sequel is here. I loved this game so much when I was 14, and i actually went through the pain to find another Saturn and copy of the original NiGHTS into Dreams, last year just because I missed the game so much, so far what I've been hearing this game is going to be epic! Naofumi Hataya, one of the composers from the original game, is working on the sequel's music. Also, twenty-six Sonic Team staff members have been involved in the game, of which the original core members from the first game. While Sonic Team USA is developing the game, the music and CGI movie production is being made in Japan.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Player911 Screen shots are old?
Those screen shots were from the original Sega Saturn system. I hope this is a new game and just not a port. Plus Nights on the Saturn was a big let down. All the screen shots and videos made one believe that it was a true 3D environment that you can explorer. In reality it was basically a side scroller with some nifty special effects. You could only fly up, down, left or right. I think I remember that hitting a switch would change your course. Again if this is a remake that has a true 3D environment to explorer then I might consider picking this up; otherwise I'll rent it.
