- Agony : some real great music

- Beast 1 & 2

- Another World : really impressive for that time

I like the long intro from Blade of Destiny also.

Although usual suspects named, would still also add Flashback, Cruise for a Corpse, Superfrog & X-out too.

Eye of the Beholder 2 (also the 1 had nice intro and char generation music)
Perihelion; perfect synch and cataclismatic feeling
Another World
Shadow of the Beast 2
Dune
Horror Zombies From The Crypt (ok this one was not that tech, but sure it was neat and it puts you in the right mood)
Indiana Jones 1 and 2
It came From The Desert
Legend Of Kirandya
Sword & Galleons (this one was just that: mysterious)
Utopia (great music)
Wrath Of The Demon

I'm sorry. The Amiga had many great intros but the only one that really took my breath away was Another World. It was completely unexpected - I know that now it's a bit redundant, but if you understand what's like watching it for the 1st time when it was released.... it puts everything on shame.
I even called my parents to make them see and they were genuinely amazed.
Whoa.

Ow yes, the intro of [Wrath of the Demon]...

Black owl sitting on the top of a building...
Dark skies in the background...
Far look at the city...
Close up...
A running man...
Screams...
Man standing over a dead messanger body that holds a letter...
Some howls...
Close up to to the message containing a request or some kind of "briefing"...

[Fire button]

The title screen with a demon holding a glass ball with princess trapped inside...

Old gray-hair king pointing at the exit, while the main character can't get his eyes of that beautiful blond princesess, big... round... partly covered... eyes ... the necklace is nice too

Flashback demo was awsome! Especially this lightening part that makes you JUMP! amazing
BloodMoney had a damm cool track with really neat graphics
I liked the Wings demo, maybe not the all time greatest but good to look at.

until year 2000 i skipped it by hitting the fire button without knowing that there is an intro
I had an Atari ST at the time I saw SOTB in a shop in Cambridge and the demo intro for Blood Money... needless to say the Atari was sold and I bought an Amiga within a week.

The intros that amazed me the most were

wrath of the demon (the entire game is graphically brilliant)
settlers
thunderhawk
armour geddon 1

And finally, Crystals of Arborea. a Really simple intro with some crystals flying into the world from outer space, but it sets a nice mood. the music is fun

I forgot Valhalla 2. Infinity has a rather long speech about how he is trapped in a castle and basically wants to take over. Every now and then he pounds the table on some kind of blob crawling around on it.

At the end he pounds again, shows a very evil grin, and then just keeps on pounding away as the screen blacks out

Most Cinemaware intros and Beast 2. That baby crying always scared the s*** out of any poor unsuspecting non-Amiga owner.

Hi,

I liked the Birds of Prey intro, even though it's quite short..

Cannon Fodder, if only for the catchy intro.... #humhumhum war never been so much fun humhumhum...#

Ooh and I loved the intro to Shadow of the Beast 3 due to it being my first expierence of what the Amiga was capable of.

The EOB's were good but if I had to pick one as my fave it would be Another World, it was just awsome at the time and even looking back I'm still surprised they pulled it off

Lionheart, Ambermoon and Captive 2 ... I'm always interested in more cool intros, got to look at some of the recommendations here which I don't know yet :) I recorded a couple of crappy gifs btw of some games: http://omr.planet-d.net/gameintros/
