Daily Star's Reviews
It’s got a real Flash Gordon vibe to it and the humour really helps to stick the landing when it comes to the storytelling. The voice-acting is cracking and make for regular giggles, if not somewhat stereotyped. But when it comes to gameplay its fine but not anything to write home about. A nice game but not a great game.
This is a must-buy for any Ninja Turtles fans looking for a retro gaming kick to add to their collection. Those les interested in a 90s cartoon classic may find the collection a Little too samey.
It’s cartoon design is full of character and deep down it’s a really involved city builder of a game offering a strong challenge of your creative mind. Well worth giving a go if you’re subscribed to Xbox Game Pass, as it is included in that package and can even be streamed over the cloud, but for £35 on other systems, it is still a great summer title to get your creative juices flowing.
All in, a wonderful title that brings back a lot of memories for those of us who have been gaming for a while, while creating a whole new ‘this is cool’ feel for newcomers. Either way, it brings friends and family together and will spark as many laughs in your living room as frustrated yelps when you’re beaten into submission by a five-year-old.
The overall idea of In Nightmare is solid. The trapped-in-a-child’s-nightmare vibe and slow unveiling of his past traumas feel fresh. But the final delivery in a game was just ‘meh’ and there are better puzzlers out there. A more polished sequel could potentially do very well.
