    Another World is still a masterpiece you have to play but these console versions are too expensive without adding any new content.

    This commemorative edition of Another World is not the first of its kind, but it is surely the best edition that pays tribute to a timeless classic.

    This is not an experience for everyone, though we'd suggest that those with a love of adventure games and the download scene should take this one on; it's an important part of gaming history and an education for serious gamers.

    Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition takes a beloved classic of the past that hasn't necessarily aged very well and brings to players who are hungry for monuments of gaming history just the version they needed to finally take a dive if they hadn't already.

    Another World – 20th Anniversary is a welcome new edition of one of videogaming’s most significant works and cult classic of other days. This port keeps all that made the original so appealing, while also keeping the frustrating difficulty and low replay value.

    It's a great opportunity to discover the game or replay it, but to be honest, as a remake it could have been more ambitious.
