Knights in the Nightmare: Game and Soundtrack ReviewThat is... domestic version of game, import version of soundtrack.05.29.09 - 6:34 AM
When this game hits store shelves next week, we'll all be up in arms about the start of E3 2009. Thus, we're posting this review now, so you don't forget about Atlus' latest offering, coming June 2nd.
Come to think of it, Atlus has a very strong summer lineup. Last week was Crimson Gem Saga (PSP). On June 2nd, they have Knights in the Nightmare (DS), and on June 9th, we'll finally get Class of Heroes (PSP). Later in June, it's Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (DS) up on the menu. That's a lot of handheld RPGs.
Knights in the Nightmare is the third game in developer Sting's "Dept Heaven" series. If you were a fan of Riviera and/or Yggdra Union, you'll definitely want to read this review. While the gameplay is quite different from the previous games, there is enough connection between this game and the other two that most fans of the previous installments will enjoy this game as well. I know I enjoyed it.
We also have a review of the Japanese two-disc soundtrack. We'll get a review for the one-disc version that Atlus USA printed in the near future. Shigeki Hayashi just keeps pumpin' out those oldschool synth tunes!
