    Knights in the Nightmare is a solid addition to the PSP library.

    While there are few changes from the DS to the PSP version under the hood, the control change and the improved visuals had me enjoying this new version a bit more.

    Knights in the Nightmare is a hit or miss game, plain and simple.

    Knights in the Nightmare obviously has a lot of complexity to it. The game is highly polished, and strategy RPG fans will have a field day with this title.

    If you're a fan of strategy RPGs and shooters, there's a lot to like here. If you're not, you probably aren't even reading this.

    In the end, Knights in the Nightmare isn't a bad port, but it doesn't manage to surpass the original.
  7. Our one big complaint: the load times. [Dec 2010, p.79]

    Originally a nice title, full of fresh ideas and a perfect touch controls, Knights in The Nightmare suffers from the loss of a touch screen and a stylus, offering nothing more than a good story and the enhanced visuals that the PSP can afford.
  9. Knights in the Nightmare is truly a unique experience, blending two very opposing genres together. The insane learning curve will no doubt be off-putting, but players who stick it out will find an addictive battle system that will be hard to put down.

    There are a ton of other, much better SRPGs on the PSP, stay as far from this one as humanly possible and play Yggdra Union instead.

    The game play for this game is quite enjoyable, and I even played again after finishing the game. The story is unique and definitely worth following to the finish. Full Review »
