In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Fantastic music, tons of control options, sometimes pretty, decent concept

The Bad: Controls take getting used too, too repetitive, somewhat dis jaunting story wise

I had high hopes for NiGHTS thinking that maybe Sonic Team will put some effort into a game for once...well I was let down once again. While NiGHTS feels a lot like the Saturn game and the Sonic games they did a semi-decent job with this. While the graphics are sometimes pretty, and while gliding around and making Paraloops to capture Nightopians from giant black holes of doom is fun it gets kind of old after awhile. You can play as either Will or Helen who are two children who land in the world if Nightopia while sleeping. They of course meet NiGHTS (who is a sexually confused Nightmaren) to save the world from Reala and Master Wizeman. Some levels consist of you looping and swooping through an on rails level of collecting rings, busting open cages with nothing in them, and ummm...fighting weird bosses. While the bosses are weird they are the best part of the game such as a giant clown that you have to bounce vertically through a series of obstacles pinball style. You can create you own little Nightopia (think of Chao gardens for old Sonic fans) and visit your friends' online with real time weather forecasting (!) There's not much other than that to say besides the wonderfully delightful soundtrack and the endless controller options. Pick this up for your kid or yourself if you're having a boring weekend.
