You know how old fogies like to bang on about how games today are too easy and that it was actually more fun when you had to re-load 30 minutes of tape whenever you died?
They’re wrong: it was crap.
Taken as a piece of gaming history, this re-mastered 20th anniversary edition of the brilliantly evocative cinematic puzzle/action/adventure hybrid Another World is a retro gamer’s dream come true, with tasteful additions and controls that fit the original perfectly.
But, sadly, the game itself has not aged well.
Come with us on a journey
You play Professor Lester Knight Chaykin, a man flung into - yes - another world when an experiment goes wrong (by means of an electrical storm).
A lovingly remastered version of an iconic game, but sadly one that will only frustrate and annoy when not viewed through rose-tinted spectacles
