This game was so boring. The graphics are terrible. I spent about an hour floating around for no apparent reason...seems like this game is for children, and if so, there is WAY too much dialogue. If I got bored, I am pretty sure a child would as well.
From the first day I ever got a Wii, this game has looked intriguing since I saw it at Blockbuster. How I am glad that it was Cooking Mama I chose instead of this awful title.
Story: 2/10 Essentially there are two annoying kids (a boy or a girl, you can pick which one you are) who get sucked into an annoying dreamland. They soon meet an annoying owl who tells them that they are in the badly named Nightopia. Quickly after that, a concieted jester named NIGhts shows up and tells the kid that they can fly by, um, touching her. The story is boring and strange, the characters annoying and unlikeable (all except the American-sounding evil characters have high-pitched British accents that drive me crazy), and all the characters point out incredibly obvious things (like, when NiGHTS is slamed into a door by an evil jester, the girl almost literally says, "Oh no! NiGHTS got slammed into a door by an evil jester! We need to save her!").
Gameplay: 1/10 The gameplay is repetitive and boring, involving flying around, making awkward circles of sparkly stuff in the air, and attempting to defeat mostly invisible bosses that are impossible to defeat within the very short time limit.
Music: 3/10 The music was repetitive and uncreative, rarely changing and repeating itself often. It was almost more random sound effects than actual music.
Graphics: 1/10 The graphics were dissatisfying, chunky and ever-changing. When talking, the characters ove their mouths like dying fish, not syncopated with their words. The graphics also aren't very colorful or exciting, dragging on dully by.
Controls: -10/10 The controls were by far the worst I have ever seen in my life. They were awkward and leaned in strange ways all the time. It was impossible to get NiGHTS to fly in a straight line, looping all over the place and flying past everything 37 times.
All I have to say is: DON'T GET THIS GAME! DON'T RENT IT OR BUY IT! WIPE ITS EXISTENCE FROM YOUR MIND!
