    Nights Into Dreams is out of its time. Still fun and well developed, can no longer surprise as many years ago.

    Leaving you with no indication on how to progress might have been quirky, innovative game design in 1996, but in 2012, it's an exercise in pure frustration. Replaying the initial laps over and over again, just so you can have another crack only makes matters worse. The original Saturn version of the game is on offer too if you are so nostalgically inclined, but it still doesn't manage to escape the fundamental inadequacies NiGHTS possesses. [December 2012, p80]

Strange mechanics, but straightforward when you figure out 'what goes where'. Great for the adventurous person willing to patiently discover the strange gameplay and enjoy a bit of video game history too. It shows that a talented team made the game (Team Sonic at SEGA), especially in the seamless core gameplay and the uniquely inventive concept, but it also shows that games have become more refined since 1996.

    Offline leaderboards and a few trophies round off the PS3 version as a fun little deal, but I wouldn't want to spend much on it.
