I like it.
But the only reason I even LOOKED at it in the first place was because of TRiPPY. Years ago, I had seen her fabulous artwork on DeviantART and was fascinated even though I wasn't a fan. Besides that, I only knew that NiGHTS existed was through cameos he had in several Sonic games.
So when I saw NiGHTS on the front cover of Nintendo Power, the first thing I remembered was TRiPPY and her artwork...though it had been so long ago that I had forgotten her deviantART name, it was kind of "that lady that was crazy about this character and drew badass fanart".
But anyway, it's a lot better than what people are giving it credit for. See, I'd been following the Sonic franchise since Sonic Adventure 2, JUST in time to experience the downfall--poor quality, the firing of Ryan Drummond and the hiring of the horrible Jason Griffith, Shadow the Hedgehog....uuuughhh. So I played the game, keeping in mind that it came from the same people who were pulling Sonic down the crapper. In other words, I came into the game expecting it to suck. But it didn't. It was a lot better, and the voice acting was a HELL of a lot better than in the Sonic games. Sure, it's not perfect, but if you buy any game expecting it to be perfect, you're doomed to hate it in the end.
Very much agreed 'ere. I may not 'ave known about this place a couple years ago, or even last year. But I do know a good game when I see it. Nintendo Power gave it a 9.0 out if 10 ignore all the jaded 'aters and some may bemoan the fact that the game feels like it's predesscer or summat like that. The voice actin' is way better than the Sonic games that I own . You know every game has it's flaws,like humans we're not perfect.
