  • Summary: Enhanced to take full advantage of the power of PSP system, this new version of the game features remastered visuals and sounds, optimized controls, and a new opening movie from visionary director Yukio Takatsu (Persona 3, Persona 4, Yggdra Union). Originally, players could choose from two different characters with two unique perspectives on events. This new release adds a third character, Princess Yggdra, offering even more replay value and shedding more light on the game's enchanting narrative. Moreover, this release further expands on what was already one of the deepest, most substantial tutorials of all-time, giving players introductory missions filled with instructions and tips, making the game's learning curve easier than ever. Dripping with style and originality, Knights in the Nightmare delivers an unforgettable experience. Expand

    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.
  4. Our one big complaint: the load times. [Dec 2010, p.79]

    In the end, Knights in the Nightmare isn't a bad port, but it doesn't manage to surpass the original.

    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.

    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. Expand
