Summary: This is what Jump and Run should look,Sound and feel like. A wonderfull Game and a must have for everyone. Its hard at the end but not unfair. The OST alone ist worth listening !!! Dont Read! go an get it! Collect all the Diamonds....
Summary: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams does a lot of things right and a number of things wrong. For starters, the visuals are absolutely amazing. The transitions of environments as you switch between the adorable world of Punk Giana and the frightening world of Cute Giana are flawless. This gives the game great aesthetic appeal for those who are willing to give any game a go.
Summary: Looks like a kiddie platformer, and it is a kiddie platformer, but with something pretty hardcore beneath the surface. That something is difficulty, which is increasing with every level and by the last few levels (out of 23) it becomes really brutal (I was beating the final boss for 4 hours). I love challenging games, so it's a plus for me, but be prepared that his game is not as innocent as it looks.
Summary: Unfortunately, I believe that few people knows about this amazing game. Graphic, history, incredible gameplay. I think for the games of the same category, this would be in the top 10 in my opinion.
Summary: Black Forest Games here are doing what most great Indie Developers do: develop an interesting mechanic, here the dual worlds of the two sisters, and then develop the game around that mechanic. It's a formula which has been serving developers very well in the past and here it is much the same.
Summary: Excruciatingly difficult at times. The gameplay itself is very fast paced and action packed. I got it for free with Playstation Plus, but if you're up for a very hardcore challenge then this game is worth the €15 it normally costs. I enjoyed it while I played it, while it is most certainly not for the faint of heart. The sidescrolling system is fun and innovative, as you can swap between which sister you want. The game alternates between 2 worlds with the same overlay.
Summary: In a surprising turn of events for a series that started out as a shameless Super Mario Bros. clone, Giana Sister: Twisted Dreams is one of the most unique sidescrollers I've played in a long time. You'll play as two separate versions of the title character: Punk Giana can transform into a fireball to destroy enemies and reach high places, whereas Cute Giana has a spinning helicopter jump not unlike Dixie Kong's ability in the Donkey Kong Country series.
Summary: An old style platform game with very old fashioned game play hidden behind lush modern visuals, which often hinder rather than help you. Mario is clear, concise and bright. Giana sisters is dark and grim when in the evil/half world and quick switching between this and the light world can (with the over detailed backgrounds) make missing important details, such as spikes, all too easy. Everything kills you in one hit, enemies, spikes, getting trapped in a closing door...
Summary: Fantastic! I was not expecting anything, I remember Giana sisters being some kind of rip-off mario clone from years ago. But the graphics and game mechanics blew me away. Fantastic game with some neat ideas that keep it feeling like a modern title. If you have any interest in platform games at all, you should love this!
Summary: Great fun! This is the best platformer on Xbox Live Arcade, the visuals are really neat. Loading takes a bit though, but every level is worth the wait. Be not misled by the cute graphics: This game is for those looking for a real challenge!
