Another World arrived a little before Flashback and became an instant cult classic with it's animation, soundtrack and dramatic cinematic scenes.  

Puts you in control of  Lester Knight Chaykin,   a young Ferrari (288 GTO) owning genius Steven Brooks  

Another World is a pretty difficult game, but worth  the effort of learning the moves and sequences - a bit like Dragons Lair but with more gameplay and control.

This cinematic platform adventure puts you in control of  Lester Knight Chaykin, a young Ferrari owning (288 GTO to be precise!) genius who undertakes a crucial experiment that goes a bit pear shaped!  It's then Lester finds himself in 'Another World'.

The game had amazing cartoon-like visuals effects (especially for the time) and the soundtrack was something else too.  The sound effects kept the pace up and you on the edge of your seat. French designer Eric Chahi lead the way in terms of developing new ways of ilustration on screen, and his use of rotoscoping to achieve cinematic cartoon-like results was a key part of this game experience. On systems like the Mega Drive at the time the graphics were truly ground breaking.
