Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams – Owltimate Edition is clearly the definitive version of a decent platformer, but there is a lot of missed potential here. The game certainly has style and substance, but the two aren’t properly balanced. The shorter, tighter stages of Super Mario World or Super Mario Bros. 3 are readily replayable and never drag on too long.
The levels are fairly repetitive, and at times, minor missteps utilizing the Switches analog stick did keep me from testing the real excruciating levels. The story aspects aren’t explained very well, which may turn some players off as they question what the purpose of each level and boss is. Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams is predominantly a side scrolling platformer fans dream in and of itself, so despite some very shallow shortcomings, it has a lot to offer.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - Owltimate Edition combines charming visuals and a good level of performance on the Switch, in the service of a virtual world that enchants with its visuals and soundtrack. Controls and physics are tight enough, but the only thing that it lacks is that little spark that hooks the player in and motivates to keep plodding through to the end.
