Re: Some more games...

4. Evil Twin, In Utero/UBI Soft, 2001 (PC): Most underestimated game of 2001! Magazines raved about this 3D platform game but Joe Public simply did not buy it. The game is extremely bugged (especially in WinXP). ‘Drunken’ camera-movements, crashes, a headless hero: name any possible bug and Evil Twin will deliver. The game is however a platform-fan’s dream come true. It is beautiful, huge and features all typical platform-tricks seen in other games and even adds more to it.
Considering all of those problems for that game, how did it ever make it to your Top 4 ever platform games list?!?
Seeing the many responses in this thread it looks like platformgames are very popular with gamers. Why is it then that so few platformers are released on PC? Only Rayman M, Evil Twin, Akimbo and Woody Woodpecker have seen the light the past 8 months.
Is it because gamers are ashamed to buy these typical games for kiddies or what?
Maybe it's because of poor implementation? I don't recall the PC ever being very good at this genre. The few successful attempts that did exist were DOS games, not Windows. PC games just aren't known for the smooth, fluid movement that are platforme games.
