Summary

Best ambiance I have ever found in a computer game.

The Good

The most important thing with "another world" is, that the different level are not build from elements, but each level is different concerning both graphics and game play. So unlike many other games you cannot predict, what will happen next until all the end, which is really fabulous. Together with this point the very special graphics that concentrates and omitts unnecessary details contribute to an intense feeling of being lost which I have not experience in any game before or after.

I have first played the game in about 1993 and since that I play it every 1 or 2 years because it is simply so timeless and beautiful.

The Bad

At a first glance nothing

The Bottom Line

A game with an astonishing ambience, storyline and really flexible and everytime surprising gameplay.
