NiGHTS into Dreams

Next-Gen has a short but very nice article on NiGHTS into Dreams on the Sega Saturn. It is a retrospective on why NiGHTS was such a good game and why it hasn't been ripped off yet.
Edge writes:
Because, with Nights, playtime is its own reward – and though high scores are the ultimate goal, the joy in playing and scoring highly are the same act. Flightpaths are cut with intricate patterns of items that beg to be linked together – collected in quick succession – for bonuses. For those willing to find the optimal paths some stages can be continuously linked in a flow broken only by the clock and an inevitable need to move on.
Read the whole article, its only a couple of pages and well worth it.
