The lights are on
Nightmare Creatures is a solid PlayStation-era action title with gameplay that has aged very well, even if its visuals haven't.
Join Andrew Reiner, Ben Reeves, Jeff Marchiafava, and myself as we try to make through the game without shutting it off in sheer terror. Make sure to stick around for the Replay Roulette to hear Ben Reeves shout things like, "Boom boom!", "Welcome to boom-town!" and the classic, "Boomerang!"

This is such a great game, it kinda scared me since i was still a kid but i played it a lot with my buddies.
This game definitely scared the crap out of me when I was a kid and yeah it still plays surprisingly well.
Nightmare Creatures still looks pretty fun. That could be another candidate for a Tim Turi Super Replay.
Man I remember getting this game for Christmas in '99. Those monsters were so awesome for the time.
I really liked Nightmare Creatures for N64. Never beat it, but I always thought it had a great balance of horror and combat elements plus all the monster varieties always kept me on my toes.
I loved Nightmare Creatures! So much nostalgia!
I remember playing this game nonstop. Can't remember how I eventually killed the final boss though.
Nightmare Creatures looks awesome.
Man this game is awesome, brings back a lot of memories. Also nice Trent Reznor reference Ben, NIN is the best!
That second game was horrible. Good try though Ben.
This Nightmare Creature Replay was awesome! Thank You! Thanks for taking my suggestion. That second segment was awful, not y'alls fault. Thanks again for the Replay of Nightmare Creatures! A Super Replay of Nightmare Creatures would be totally Bliss! Please make that happen for your "survival horror" option, we as fans would totally support that game. Either way, thank you.
Nightmare Creatures is awesome! It was one of my favorite PlayStation games. You could decapitate the werewolves and tear the limbs off of a lot of the other monsters, too. The game gets really hard--those hellhounds are tough!--but it remains fun throughout. Nightmare Creatures 2 on the Dreamcast was interesting--combat was always one on one and it had Rob Zombie songs.
The terrible Roulette game I never want to see again, either. What was that crap?
God, I remember getting stuck on the first boss battle! I could probably beat it now, but I don't have the game anymore :P
One of the only games, back in the day, that could make me jump every five minutes. I think I played it on N64 though.
Great episode of Replay this week! I loved playing through Nightmare Creatures during the PlayStation Era.
Nightmare Creatures was a fun game I rented a couple of times on The Playstation. I really liked playing as the girl because her sword would remove limbs off of the zombies and wolves. It was a difficult game if I am remembering right.
