    Little Nightmares stands head and shoulders above its peers it terms of its true innovation, beautiful, atmospheric design, and a truly terrible tale. For any horror fan, Little Nightmares is the stuff of dreams.

    Little Nightmares is frightening, in a way that gets under your skin. A way that whispers in your ear that you won't sleep well tonight. Little Nightmares takes things you were afraid of when you were a kid, and reminds you you're still afraid now.

    Little Nightmares is a wonderful adventure, but unsettling and grotesque at the same time. If you like games like Limbo and Inside, you cannot miss it, even though this one has its own personality.

    A unique experience with an incredible atmosphere: it leaves too many unanswered questions, but the five hours of gameplay flow by quickly.

    The first multiplatform release from Tarsier is a taut grim fairytale of a puzzle-platformer that's perfect to explore on a rainy afternoon.

    Lacklustre puzzling, fiddly controls and a brief runtime disappoint slightly. [June 2017, p.90]

    Little Nightmares is the equivalent of wax fruit, beautiful to look at from a distance but disappointing up close and ultimately functionless.

The whole gameplay is just so interactable. Everything is so consistent and yet there is so much difference. The story is mysterious and there are many theories about it. You have lots of secret messages and easter eggs. The art style helps in every way, the atmosphere is so good and the music just really fits. It was such a good build up and everything was just well timed. One of the best games I played this year. WAUW. Can't wait to hear more from this game company. Expand

    While it's clearly takes inspiration from Limbo and Inside, Little Nightmares manages to add enough to its gameplay to make it stand apartWhile it's clearly takes inspiration from Limbo and Inside, Little Nightmares manages to add enough to its gameplay to make it stand apart from them as a strong addition to the genre. It's a creepy and somewhat unsettling platformer with a great atmosphere that certainly requires a second playthrough. Expand

    Little nightmares is a great atmospheric game combined with horroric theme. It is more than just solving puzzles.
    Generally speaking it is a very astonishing game; although, It has a vauge story line which makes one to interpret their own version of story. Having that said, playing the DLCs lights some clues about the story.
    Soundtracks are ok.
    Game-play isn’t perfect but it is fine.

Great atmosphere, awesome style and pretty good gameplay for its genre... it is realy annoying that it doesn't have a story! I have just finished it and i seriously feel nothing! No sadness, no happiness, nohing at all! It's like the devs didn't even bother to make a story...And as far as i can see everyone can only make theories about what this game was about! It's pretty sad, cause it could have beed a realy nice game... Expand
