Marcus Estrada writes: "Neverending Nightmares is a hard game to play. By that I don’t mean something along the lines of a super-precise platformer or adventure game with outrageously complex puzzles. Instead, this is a title with such an overwhelmingly creepy atmosphere that it is hard to sit down and play. During my playthrough, it was hard to sit through the experience for more than 30 minutes at a time. Very rarely are games able to cause such sensations in players."
