    Little Nightmares is a perfect example of doing lots with so little. It succeeds as an excellently taut piece of visual storytelling while also delivering a compelling gameplay experience. It happens to be one of the more unique horror games out there thanks to a detailed art style, fantastic animation, and top-notch sound design.

    Little Nightmares: Complete Edition is the type of game that will train you to live in the shadows, only for it to drag you out into the blinding spotlight. Its clever mix of visual storytelling and careful interaction makes it one of the most atmospheric titles that you can find on the Nintendo Switch.

    The Complete Edition fixes one of the bigger flaws of the original version of Little Nightmares, expanding its contents and story by a good chunk.

    Little Nightmares is a dark, gripping and unsettling horror game. It succeeds in transporting you to a place where you’ll be biting your nails and sharing every pounding heartbeat with your on screen counterpart. Some frustrating sections can pull you out of the moment and the game mechanics themselves are not particularly original, but the much like the grotesque inhabitants of the Maw this game will grab you and not let go until the end.

    Little Nightmares boasts some superb character and environment design, and exceptional sound too, with parts of the Maw screaming as if the ship was a gigantic bionic seafarer. Its story is compellingly told, and the way the main game connects with the DLC is immensely rewarding. But you never really feel like you have full control of Six, and the long breaks between restarts can dump you into a painful loop of spending less time in the game than you do in loading screens.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Adorei em como uma história tão sem grande exploração no enredo e respostas conseguiu trazer uma imersão e ambientação sombria e de terror, e em como a história vai se tornando cada vez mais sombria conforme tu joga e percebe que talvez o pior não sejam os monstros que rodeiam a criança de capuz amarelo e sim... talvez ela mesma. A trilha sonora nota 10. A única coisa a melhorar talvez seja a jogabilidade e controles que muitas vezes parecem não responder aos comandos. Expand

The atmosphere is unique and the size of everything around you makes you feel tiny and fragile. Almost like everything could kill you. Every character is kinda ominous (mostly because of the size). The game is very short but I think is a very nice experience. Despite that, I don't think is worth the cost totally. I bought it on sale on the Nintendo E-Shop, otherwise I'd never have played it. If you want to play it, I suggest waiting for a promotion/sale.
    It's barely 6 hours long and the puzzles are not that hard. You'll die a lot because of all the hostile characters
    so prepare yourselves because it'll take a very long time to respawn. Loading screens in general are quite long.

Little nightmares è un puzzle game a tema horror con una fantastica veste grafica. Tuttavia la narrazione è praticamente nulla, e il gioco lascia interpretare quasi tutto al giocatore. E quindi per quanto sia un fan del horror non posso evitare di dire che, la narrazione non mi ha colpito particolarmente nel modo in cui l'ho interpretata, e non sono un fan del dlc che è mostruosamente ripetitivo. Il gioco base è bello ma non memorabile secondo me. Expand

    Firstly, it's beautiful. The sheer amount of detail in the animation of the monsters that pursue you is a horrifying wonder to behold. The setFirstly, it's beautiful. The sheer amount of detail in the animation of the monsters that pursue you is a horrifying wonder to behold. The set pieces and mysterious, visual storytelling are all great, too. I love the perspective we get as well, but that comes with issues in conjunction with the controls. I ran off a few insta-death ledges by accident simply because I couldn't accurately gage where my character was based on the camera angle. Simple 'run left' bridges are an unnecessary hazard because of this. Meanwhile, other areas where you sneak above monsters in the rafters didn't bother me at all. Not falling is the challenge. Load times were also annoying, though this is likely just an issue on the Switch.

    I don't really care too much about the controls in conjunction with the camera in the long run. Everything else in the game is so wonderfully refined, it's impossible to think of much else to criticize in what you get. The only issue that really, really, REALLY irked me was the length of the game.

    If you look up online how long it takes to complete the main story of Little Nightmares, you'll likely see sources claim that it takes a minimum of 6 hours. Either this is a lie, or I'm better at the game than average players. But, I don't think this is the case. I beat Little Nightmares in less than 3 hours, and when I realized the game was winding to a close, I was left feeling underwhelming disappointment. It's so great and refined, but it ends right at what you'd think could generously be the three-fourths point.

    The complete DLC offers a little more playtime (and more of a challenge), but it's a far less refined experience.

    Still— I completely recommend this game if you can find it on sale. What we get is incredible, even if there's not much of it.

It is also very creepy. But that's all it has going for it. ON the Switch port, you will have to wait 30-40 seconds for the game to load after you die. You will die frequently. The game suffers due to its 2.5-D style, the controls are VERY poor, leading you to failing the same 'puzzles' (that consist of just avoiding enemies) over and over again. If the load times weren't a problem, it would be better, but when I have to wait half a minute before I can play again, all I can think about is how frustrating and unfair my death was. The game sets you up for failure at every turn. It isn't fun. It's frustrating. Expand
