After playing the HD release of NiGHTS into Dreams on the PS3 and 360 it’s clear that it has some control issues.
Many people say it’s the equivalent of 8 directions, like the d-pad, and although I think that’s a bit of an exaggeration, it does explain the issue.
On the one hand it’s very easy to fly in a straight line because the analogue stick will not register the small movements. On the other hand it’s incredibly hard to fine tune your direction or keep a smooth flow. Very often I will miss chips, rings and link balls because the direction of NiGHTS will not change at all or will change too much!
For a game and franchise that I love so much it’s hard to live with the frustrating controls, and that’s why I am asking all NiGHTS fans to contact SEGA and ask them to patch the controls.
Use the links below to send them a message by clicking “submit a request”:
I would ask that you send me a copy of the message so I can accumulate them and show SEGA how much support there is for a patch.
You can also discuss it on the various forums…the more the better…
Below are a couple of videos that fans have made to demonstrate the issue:
