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

    Another World remains an utterly brilliant game. No matter if you use the classic or modern visuals, the game has a true alien feel to it. In addition, the trial and error gameplay is as addicting as it was those many years ago. While the game is extremely short, I did find myself continuously loving how the production value stayed intact. That is something worth celebrating.

    A cult piece in the world of video games. A science fiction story made adventure to play and with an exceptional graphic and musical ambience.

    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.
