OMG! No reviews for the PS1 legend?!


If you have not played this game then you should do so immediately! It is a childish game to be fair but that was it's target audience. If you enjoy childish humor and uncomplicated adventure then you will love 40 Winks... If you are one of those people that like to over criticise everything and don't feel satisfied with anything then shouldn't have the privelege of being shown the amazing gameplay of this fantastic game because you won't enjoy it anyway...
 
If you have played this game as a child then you will know why this game is so great... This was one of the foundation childhood games for me and a classic along with Spyro and Crash. I got this the same day as Pong and I spent much more time with this. That shows it's decency to beat a classic such as pong in my eyes. 
  
Presentation: 5/5   This game presents itself in an amazing way and it almost makes you feel as if you're the one stuck in the dreamland. They couldn't have improved the appeal on this one. Maybe it needed some more popularity though...
 
Gameplay: 5/5   The transformable characters pretty much sums this up. You want to be an ordinary boy and then suddenly a caveman? I know I do :P (Trust me it's better than it sounds)
 
Graphics: 4/5    As good as you could expect for the PS1. You could hardly expect HD on this one >.< 
 
Sound: 3/5   The music didn't really fit to the tone of the game considering it was a game about what goes on in dreams/nightmares. This music sounded childish... too childish even for children. 
 
 Overall: 4.5/5   Although this game was not the most popular game of all time, it was one of the most playable, for my generations inner child perhaps... Kids these days wouldn't understand why the graphics aren't in HD or why there aren't any guns. They don't realise the games we had to play before they could play all these new technological games. If games like this were not made, we would have very little genre and a lost inner child. This and others like it sculpted us to what we are. We owe it that much.
