    By saying this title is awful is pure madness.
    If you played the original and you loved it, you'll love this too. But it isn't flawless.
    By saying this title is awful is pure madness.
    If you played the original and you loved it, you'll love this too. But it isn't flawless. There's one big problem: controls. There's 6 buttons on the console plus two touch screens so WHY the programmers put the jump and shoot in the same button?! This is awful!
    A part from this, which is the only flaw of the game, the game still remain a masterpiece. Compare this game with some modern game, you can compare it with Limbo: it's a lot of trial and error with a fantastic gameplay.
    If you haven't already played Another World (or Out of this World) you have to remember that you can beat this game in an hour (unless you get stuck in some parts of the game).

    An absolute abomination. Yes, I know the original is held in high regard, but I never liked it much first time around. Now it looks pathetic,An absolute abomination. Yes, I know the original is held in high regard, but I never liked it much first time around. Now it looks pathetic, with laughable animations and bland environments. Worse still are the awful controls, with your character slipping and sliding all over the place. Plus, multiple actions (jump, kick, shoot etc) are mapped to one button - unacceptable. Another World is full of instant death traps and enemies you have no way of avoiding first time round, making it a horrible trial and error affair which is constantly beyond unfair. It is a badly designed game that is absolutely no fun to play whatsoever. Just play the infinitely better Flashback - or any other 2D platform adventure game you can find - rather than this awful, obnoxious garbage. Expand
