    Another World is a game that has critical acclaim, cult appeal, and this remastered version of the game makes the experience smoother and better looking while not sacrificing any of the original game’s charm. There are some frustrating moments in the controls and the game is very short, but both of these are less drawbacks than they are just leftover remnants from gaming’s bygone age. Another World has one of the best stories ever told through a game and remains a true shining gem in both the past and present of gaming.

    This is adventure gaming distilled down to its most essential elements, compounded with a healthy challenge and atmosphere like no other.

    Playing Another World feels like more than a dusty visit to the video game museum. It is something more akin to an exciting examination of modern gaming’s DNA under a powerful microscope. For those interested in the origins of Souls games, rogue-likes, and cinematic adventure games, this is the place to look. Be ready for some wonky old-school controls and bewildering level design, but know that working your way past those limitations is absolutely worth it.

    Another World still feels like a great sci fi adventure after 25 years. It´s short and controls are rough, but it is a piece of history. We just miss some more extras. This is exactly the same game we received four years ago.

    Interesting, good for the oldest players and also a good way to revive an authentic adventure in the 16 bit style with puzzles, action and platforms.

    Eric Chahi's Out of this World still comes back on one of the last consoles which stills lacks it. Here is the same adventure you experienced on countless occasions, this time on Switch. All the 20th Anniversary Edition are there, which means that you can switch the HD filter on the go, change the difficulty to keep some kind of mental health, and enjoy modern sound effects. There you have it: it's Out of this World, on Switch.

    To me, Another World is an old game that persists by virtue of being ported to nearly every gaming platform under the sun. You don’t see games like this anymore for the same reason no one has made a game like the original Prince of Persia. Although certain dark-ish, soul-ish games delight in punishing gameplay, difficulty was as much a game mechanic as swinging a weapon around. Here, it gets to be an annoyance and feels like a means to pad the length of this fairly short game.
