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 w 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 ju mp 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. Ever ything 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!
Summary: A confusing amalgam of cotton candy fairy tale visuals and "8-bit hard" gameplay. I purchased this game based on the intriguing visuals and interesting mechanic (ability switching) showcased in the trailer. I was surprised to discover that plot had been completely thrown out (magic portal sucks sisters into fantasy land...and GO!). I had expected something more from a game that seemed to be trying so hard to create a stylistic visual world.
Summary: Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is one of the better platformer games to have been released in recent years. The gameplay is excellent, the controls are tight and responsive, and the graphics, sound, and music are all great. The game goes from being fairly easy in the early levels, to ramping up the difficulty as you go on, so though it may seem a little easy at first, it does provide a good challenge.
Summary: What a pleasant surprise! I was fully expecting a run-of-the-mill, neither-here-or-there indie platformer, but I was absolutely blown away (and I'm a hard one to please too). The controls are incredibly solid, the gameplay is fun, the dual worlds mechanic doesn't become a tiresome gimmick, the difficulty is just right... the bosses will make you gouge your eyes out at times... which makes it so much more fun! All in all, congratulations to the dev team on this gem.
Summary: A new star is born in the platformer genre with great gameplay,visuals and level design.The controls are great with a gamepad. The soundtrack is awesome, it took me some minutes to be comfortable with the music switch, but at the end it's so great. It's been a while I haven't seen a platformer of this quality on PC, and the price is very low. The first levels are very easy, but the diffic ulty grows rapidly. I played the 2 first world so far with 2 awesome boss fights.
Summary: So many indie platformers out there.. which ony to play first? This one! Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams is an extremely challenging but also very forgiving platformer with a twist. Whenever you want it to, the game changes its music from a bright and sunny world into a dark place with demons for example instead of owls.
