411mania - Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Review

411mania - The genre of platformers isn’t exactly a popular one these days, especially on the 2D front of things. Gone are the days of a million different Mario and Sonic clones coming out, with notable characters like Bubsy, Aero the Acro-Bat, Keith Courage, Ardy Lightfood are coming out every other week in some desperate cash grab for kid’s money. Nowadays, we pretty much got a slightly stale 2D Mario game coming out every few years, or some masocore game like an infuriating Twisted Pixel game that has a superb setup, but actually playing the game makes you want to break the controller in half. Well, Giana Sisters fits into the masocore platformer genre; it’s just missing elements that actually make it a good really good game. (Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, Xbox 360) 7.4/10
