Overall, I found the PSVR support to be a necessary and greatly enhancing feature for Dreams VR. It works great and shows great promise, but with great promise comes great responsibility to actually fulfill what it sets out to do, and while Dreams as a whole isn't quite there yet, I'm hopeful that it will be soon.

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.

Dreams is a reflection of you. A unique platform to make dreams and ideas come to reality and a huge achievement for Media Molecule that made something beyond a game

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.

With "Dreams", Media Molecule has created a true masterpiece among game construction kits, which opens up undreamt-of possibilities for players and proves to be a truly dreamlike experience. In contrast to simplified game kits, the comprehensive editor allows players to cross the boundaries of individual genres and create almost picturesque settings and cinematic game sequences. However, beginners should first invest a little time to become fully familiar with the complex menus and the individual mechanisms of "Dreams". Passionate game developers can draw from a wealth of inspiring dreams and can implement comprehensive game projects in cooperation with friends and the community. In "Dreams", passionate creative minds find a game construction kit that sets completely new standards and makes virtually anything possible in dream creation.

But that's why we're also hesitant to recommend Dreams to exactly everyone. The novelty's pleasure settles quickly for those who do not have time to mecca with the dream project full time. After a few days, we've seen all the Super Mario clones available. And then we can see that exactly everyone is in production. The "Beta feeling" permeates most of what is uploaded. Although creators have mastered the tools much better than at the early access release.

The emphasis on having the players create levels is why the game really shines, and it can only get better as time goes on.

Dreams is devoted to the realisation of exciting wishes, and with it Media Molecule has its defining, if not quite definable, game.

If you really want to unleash all your creativity, get rid of prejudices and arm yourself with time and patience, because the road is not easy. But the reward, the sweet dopamine that will irrigate your neurotransmitters when you see a new “Like” in your dream, well deserves your dedication. Because life is a dream, and dreams are dreams.

For a lot of people, this is not a must-have game. For others, Media Molecule new game show us what the PS4 is capable of and also that is possible to create a game that creates games. Dreams show you the basics of the tools and then let the user create its wildest... Dreams.
