Another World - 20th Anniversary

What I Played this Week - Another World!

There are games, and then there are "Games". Games so cool and immersive, you wish they were actually in some sidereal universe you could visit (with game cheats, unlimited shields and heavy weapons of course). When I first experienced Another World, I instantly put it in that category. From the opening action sequences that set up the very cool back-story (could be a movie), to the point you crawl out of the water on Another World - 20th Anniversary (and see that thing on the cliff watching you) you feel creeped out... Tip to new game developers: This how to create a unique and compelling adventure game.



Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary by BulkyPix

I am definitely a fan of ports of older games, because they usually allow me to replay a game I really enjoyed from my past or experience a game that I never got the opportunity to try the first time around.  Another World is slightly different, though, because other than knowing that it existed I had never played it nor did I know enough about it to really be interested in playing it.  Now that I’ve spent some time with it, however, I realize that I missed out on something pretty special by letting this one pass by.  I’m just glad I’ve gotten the chance to make amends on that faux pas.
