Digital Chumps – 90/100
“Dreams is a marvel from Media Molecule. It’s another cog in their creative machine that takes game creation to another level. Does it have room to grow? Lord, yes, especially in controls, but it offers up an outlet for non-coders to make their gaming dreams a reality.”
IGN – 90/100

It’s unlike anything else: an ambitious project that has been expertly brought to life by Media Molecule, and an audacious experiment in game design that gives you endless ways to enjoy your time with it.
PlayStation Universe – 100/100
“It’s really hard to find anything negative about Dreams. It’s a powerful and remarkable set of creation tools moonlighting as a video game. If creating isn’t your thing, the Dreamiverse offers an endless feed of other dreamer’s playable content and the super-fun campaign. Dreams is the bees knees and should not be missed.”
Push Square – 100/100
“It may have taken the better part of a decade to make, but the arrival of Dreams feels significant. It represents a whole new way for people to make things and share them with the world. Media Molecule has made a suite of tools that feels intuitive to use, but more than that, it’s built a social platform where players can collaborate and explore the imaginations of others. It’s a technical marvel, a creative miracle, and one of the most innovative games in years.”
