Knights in the Nightmare





Knights in the Nightmare 


Knights in the Nightmare is a strategy role playing game set in a really strange world. The story starts in an abandoned run down church. You know that has to be in some fantasy world. The churches this reviewer knows are well lit up, contain people, and are taken well care of. Battles occur on grids, and there are different spirit kinds of enemies.

The artistic style in Knights in the Nightmare is definitely an acquired taste. The characters look like they are on a different layer than the background graphics. Knights in the Nightmare contains a lot of darker graphics in terms of tone. There is enticement to lust images, as well as violent images in this Playstation Portable video game. There are female characters who do dress appropriately and that is valued highly here at Family Friendly Gaming.

Knights in the Nightmare contains bad language which is a shame because it detracts from a moody musical game. The music in Knights in the Nightmare fits the theme, and sets the tone. The RPG Master is able to appreciate the talents behind the music. Certain special effect sounds like the ones used when the text was scrolling were irritating.

Players get to choose from various characters, weapons, and strategies while playing Knights in the Nightmare. The story is lengthy, and hardcore RPG fans will find Knights in the Nightmare to be very challenging. In fact Knights in the Nightmare is not for the feint of heart, nor the impressionable. This PSP game can be very rough and tough. Demons, witches, spirits and more are in Knights in the Nightmare.

Playing the tutorial is a must for this hand held video game. Trust this reviewer on this. Try and play it without that and you will have problems. The game will let you try to battle with a weapon your character can not use. Which makes for a very frustrating experience. The controls in Knights in the Nightmare are very complex. This is not like Shining Force, so get that out of your head. For a hand held there are not enough saves, especially when the player has to go through twenty-six similar battles without saving.

The spiritual aspects of Knights in the Nightmare make this game for adults only. The adults that do play Knights in the Nightmare need to have a firm foundation in their beliefs so they are not led astray. They also need to comprehend that Knights in the Nightmare is fantasy with a very warped view of the world. Many families will find the magical and spiritual aspects of Knights in the Nightmare to be offensive. 

When Family Friendly Gaming was given a reviewable copy of Knights in the Nightmare from Atlus a free copy of Yggdra Union was also included. This will continue while supplies last. So Yggdra Union is a bonus for those who like to get two for the price of one.
