Atari Jaguar Review - Another World - The Jag's Holy Grail?!

 

Please enjoy my latest Atari Jaguar review for Arcade Attack! This time I look at one of my favourite games of all time; Another World (aka Out of this World).

 

This rare Jag game is amazing and I feel very lucky to own a copy! Please enjoy my review below:

I like reading reviews like this, and one review at a time is also good. When i read about to many at the same time i loose track

This looks like a game worth checking out. Thanks for sharing youre thoughts

RGC has done 2 runs selling Another World, first run had 200 copies, second run 250. They will "soon" do a third. (2020 at the latest)

 

Hopefully that will bring down the absurd ebay prices...  ($400+)

 

Nevertheless, this port really is excellent, highly recommended!

Love it; play through it about once a year at least.  We are very lucky to have such a nice release for the Jag.

That would be awesome, this is the first I'm hearing about it. Was there an official announcement saying as much?

One of them let it slip on facebook. Nothing official.

Thank you all for the kind words! I am stoked that a new run of Another World is in the pipelines! Do yourself a favour, grab a copy when you can!

 

Kind regards

A "Holy Grail"? Hardly. Flashback existed (on the Jaguar) well before this.

 

A fantastic game? Absolutely.

 

Worth selling-your-soul-to-acquire-one? Hell no. There are much better versions available on more modern systems.

It seems like a pretty decent game, but calling it The Holy Grail seems a bit much.

I hope honestly; that at some point this becomes a regularly available Jaguar game through Songbird or the AA store.  Anyone who wants to enjoy this on Jag should be able to.

Would be nice, but I doubt it due to licensing.

It's one of my favorite games on any platform, so for me, the title fits. = )

The ebay prices will drop by a grand for a few weeks.

I can get the license easy, if anyone is interested. One of my partners published AW on Dreamcast.
