I can definitely see Dreams having a long lifetime, especially if a PS5 version is swiftly released after the new console. Being able to dive in and try out what’s new and exciting in Dream Surfing is always great, as is slowly building up your skills in Dream Shaping. I don’t think I’ll ever to able to create a masterpiece of my own, but I admire Dreams greatly for empowering those people who can.

With Dreams, Media Molecule has set itself a monument in the gaming scene. The story is quite manageable in scope, but it offers the perfect insight into what is possible with the editor of Dreams. With a little bit of dedication and creativity, everyone can realize their own game dreams. With all the community features, the great remix functionality and the community jams, I see no reason why Dreams shouldn't last for many years to come. Media Molecule has already confirmed that Dreams will run on the PS5, so I will probably be able to admire my creations and those of many other players in the next generation.

It’s crazy to think that everything you see and hear in Dreams is made from scratch, entirely by the software’s engine. Now imagine if a full-fledged video game dev team actually spends time to make a game here. The possibilities? Limitless.

Dreams is not just a game, but a huge collection of great projects, objects and creative ideas. With a wealth of objects and tools, the extensive editor gives you the ability to make your ideas, dreams and visions come true. Whether you're a dream surfer or a dream shaper, you'll get plenty of stuff to let your imagination run wild. I am incredibly curious about how Dreams will develop in the future and which worlds we will explore. After a bit of patience and getting used to the world, there are no limits to your fun and creativity. An update with support for PSVR is already being planned and Dreams should also be playable on PS5. Maybe we will be allowed to explore your created world soon.

Dreams brings together a set of tools for all creators regardless of their particular discipline. It is also a library of lessons teaching you how to work with these tools. Thanks to thematic jams it motivates you to create and gives you space to share your creations and collaborate with others. This has not been done before and Media Molecule truly deserves the perfect score, because Dreams in not only entertainment - it also gives the opportunity for more entertainment to be created.

While the community and creative software is incredible, it's exactly that: software. This isn't something you should just pick up and try out of curiosity; I can only recommend this title if you are willing to dedicate hours to making something truly amazing.
