For some players (I’m one of them) this is an extremely engaging concept. Every time I sit down with the title I feel like I’m learning even more of what makes it tick, I’ve shown the game to family and friends and had long, lengthy discussions with them about strategy and concepts in the package, and more than anything else that feeling of discovery and progression is everywhere, which I love.

After playing something like Knights in the Nightmare, everything else seems simple and one-dimensional (Disgaea players know what I mean, as does anyone that played Sting’s previous masterpiece titles).

With it being so deep and somewhat closed off in nature – any game with a list of dozens of mini-tutorials well worth your time isn’t messing around – I don’t see a lot of people playing it front to end. Those that do, however, will insist that this is something truly special.

So how do you differentiate between a game that’s too deep for its own good, and a classic must-play offering that sets standards for in-depth strategy gaming on DS? It’s a thin line, and it’s one that’s up for debate.

Some critics are going to pan Knights for being too complex and oversaturated, but in my opinion it’s all based on how the game nurtures a player through the complexity.Yeah, if you play Knights in the Nightmare for 10 minutes you may never want to play it again.

Take the time to go through the suggested tutorials however, and you’ll get what the game is all about at the end of the half hour long session, even going as far as to hit up additional tips menus and learn even more about how the game functions and its deeper levels. Knights in the Nightmare is a deep experience, and a daunting one at that. It also presents that complexity very well though, and that’s a testament to the design.
