Thread: Digital Foundry plays through the entire 32X library (Part 1 of 2); fascinating!

    I love those games, as well as Abe's Oddysee. That's exactly why I hate Blackthorne: I think it's a shitty version of that kind of game.

    Blackthorne is honestly pretty meh, Flashback I kinda like but it's got some janky ass controls at some point.

    The Oddworld games really are the pinnacle of cinematic platform games

    Yeah, when I went back and played Flashback recently, it fell short of my memories. That said I only played for a little while, not long enough to fully re-engage with the game (which I beat back in the 1990s).

    Prince of Persia and Out of This World are two of my all-time favorite games, though; OOTW is probably in my all-time top 20, maybe top 10. (That made Heart of the Alien a big disappointment.)

    I really liked Abe's Oddysee until I got stuck in an area where either I was missing a checkpoint, or I was expected to do an absurdly large number of things in a row and perfectly. Up to that point I absolutely loved the game -- its style, its puzzles, its whole approach -- and I keep meaning to go back to it.

    Heart of Darkness is another one I own and keep meaning to play. I spent 20-30 minutes with it when I first got it, and was definitely intrigued.

    The DF video makes it sound like Blackthorne is a better experience on the SNES. I'll try that at some point, but I imagine the shallowness of the stage design will still be just as present.
