Any other Cinematic Platformers?

by Opa Opa Wed Aug 18, 2010 7:38 pm

I'm looking for more cinematic platformers. You know, games like Prince of Persia and Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus.

I have:
Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus
Blackthorne
Heart of the Alien

and I plan to get:
Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
Heart of Darkness
Flashback: The Quest for Identity

If anybody knows of any more of these games I'd be very thankful. This is probably my favorite genre of game and I think it's a shame that there are not that many around.

Project Firestart comes to mind.

It's practically impossible to play Heart of the World and be oblivious to its predecessor :P

Yeah, Heart of the Alien is a compilation of Another World/Out of this World and it's sequel: Heart of the Alien...

@noiseredux:
I plan on eventually getting OoTW for Genesis so I can compare the Genesis and Sega CD versions. As for Prince of Persia, I might get it if I come across it for the NES.

A great game! There is the PC version ported over to Dreamcast as well.
