Game Review - Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition on Xbox One

Written by WoefulWanderer on April 17, 2017 @ 11:32 am

Another World is a pretty well known piece, so in a way it may not even need my review at all.

In my defense, I've never played it until recently, at least until the end that is, since I have never finished it completely and hadn't a pleasure of getting all the achievements. But I enjoyed many of the hours I've put into this game, admittedly looking up a few solutions to the complex puzzles I've encountered in the game. And while the game is not that long, it didn't take quite a lot of time to finish it, upon completing it I still felt some sort of personal achievement and pat myself on the back (the two guards by the bottomless pit really got on my nerves). The renewed graphics feel fresh, but still bear the same old school 2D feeling, for those with some nostalgic attitude I'm pretty sure the old pixelated textures can be turned on, but the whole gameplay doesn't change one bit. As mentioned above the game is a classic and need not be renewed or rebooted in any way.

I would recommend this one for any and all sidescroller fans, as I think it's still a rather popular genre even in recent titles, but the whole atmoshphere of Another World really is a unique and yet ever so pleasant experience, full of truly distant world environments, which remain still so close to real life imagery.
