A classic
29 April 2002 | by ono1See all my reviews

A simple idea. We all want to fly. However the only place we can do it is in our dreams. Yuji Naka makes our dreams come true with this fantastic game. Playing as either Elliot or Claris you must over come their nightmares and defeat the Wizeman. The game itself is very simple with your character (the NiGHTS being of the title) flies round a set track with you choosing the direction and height. Along the way you gather points by completing stunts and links. From the makers of Sonic and Shenmue you would expect nothing less than a great game and thats exactly what you get. The reason I went and bought my Saturn back. The one more play value of this game is amazing. A great story and gameplay. Quite simply...play it!
