Mary Skelter Nightmares
Top Critic Average
It kept me engaged and having fun throughout, apart from when I was skipping dialogue trees as quickly as possible to preserve my own sanity. It's a great blobber despite a dull story, and was fun enough to warrant hitting the “skip” button several thousand times in order to get back into the action.
Mary Skelter: Nightmares is strong enough as a whole to offer the most unique experience Compile Heart has ever created.
Mary Skelter: Nightmares has some really interesting features and an impressively dark atmosphere. While a lot of the mechanics within the dungeons will feel familiar to genre fans, the levels themselves are very well crafted. There's also a unique battle system to master and the random element of Nightmares chasing you down dark corridors will definitely get the adrenaline pumping.
Mary Skelter: Nightmares is a surprisingly effective little dungeon crawler.
In the end, the character growth and deep story made me appreciate Mary Skelter: Nightmares as more than just another simple dungeon crawler that I've seen time and time again. The game has a way to make you care about the characters which is something that I ultimately look for in these types of games.
Mary Skelter: Nightmares varies nicely from your typical turn-based JRPG. With a darker atmosphere than most games, the art and music is really what defines it. If you can overlook some of the repetitive combat and dialogue, this game has a lot to offer and provides an overall great experience.
A cool art aesthetic and interesting mechanics can't help this game from feeling like a letdown.
Dark, gross and sadistic dungeon crawler for PS Vita. It's a great game with engaging story, excessive violence and pints of blood. But beware – characters from fairy tales will no longer be as they were

While it won't blow anyone away, Mary Skelter: Nightmares is a well put together, enjoyable experience and a worthy addition to any dungeon crawler RPG fan's collection.
Mary Skelter Nightmares is one of the best Compile Heart games and one of the best DRPGs on the Vita. With its exploration and battle mechanics, Mary Skelter has a game loop that is addictive and always has something new to keep the players engaged. The game even goes beyond that by bringing a story, characters and a world that are well developed and make players wonder what will happen next. Escaping the Jail was the journey's objective, however, my time exploring within its walls was a lot of fun.
