    A good adventure full of puzzles to solve. Ingenious and fun, but not very difficult, World to the West is a good choice for lovers of this kind of games.

    Rain Games has no problems transitioning from the 2D-Teslagrad to the three-dimensional areas of World to the West. Puzzle, exploration and fighting are mixed quite well, while there is even a hint of Lost Vikings infused with the four characters that need to work together to reach their respective goals.

    It isn't the most original adventure of the year, but the way it switches between genres makes it very recommendable for those looking for a different type of adventure.

    Rain Games definitely knows how to make a quality title. If you have any fondness for Zelda, you should really check this out. Even if you don’t happen to enjoy Nintendo’s classic series, World to the West is fun enough to warrant a playthrough from even the sternest of players.

    World to the West is a good adventure game with a clever puzzle design, but does not have any gameplay mechanics that you can considerer brilliant or original.

    Nice game with cell graphics. A lot like a Zelda or RPg action game with a lot of small puzzles that open to new places. You have 4 charactersNice game with cell graphics. A lot like a Zelda or RPg action game with a lot of small puzzles that open to new places. You have 4 characters with 4 differents sets of powers, and each of them can trigger doors and access, etc...You have totems that permits teleportation (that's very practical) and switch characters. The camera is not well centered (too high), which obligate you to memorize some layout, jump blindly or not see some ennemies. The save system is primitive, there is only one save and no possibilities to go back to an older one (to date). Apart that everything works well. You do have some backtracking to do, but it still fun. Not everything is explained but you can follow the objective pointers. there is a bit of guessing to do on where to go next, but that's part of exploration. I like the story so far and the game is quite engaging. If you loved the more classical Zelda, you will love this game. I give it a 75% Expand
