  1. There's just so much content here and so much complexity that once you get a handle on how the game works, it's going to be difficult to stop playing.
  2. Aside from the fact that the game has a fairly steep learning curve early on, there isn't a lot to complain about when it comes to Knights in the Nightmare.
  3. 90
    Knights in the Nightmare is a miraculous achievement in game design, and one hell of an RPG experience.
  4. 90
    Knights is something completely unique and as such has a learning curve. But, once the game is understood, it only gets better and better.
  5. You’ll know the first time you play it whether this game is for you – you’ll either be immediately dissuaded by its complexity and depth, or you’ll fall in love with them. It might be the very definition of “niche title”, but for those who get it, Knights in the Nightmare provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
  6. 88
    An awesome addition to the DS library.
  7. Knights in the Nightmare isn’t a game that everybody will love simply because it’s one of the most complex games ever to be released. There is no game to really compare it to, except for maybe Ikaruga, and that’s not even an RPG.
