I spent many hours playing original Giana Sisters. It was great game! I remember when they announced, if I'm not mistaken, a sequel for Nintendo DS. Oh boy. It was one of my favorite NDS games ever. Completed few times and even done a speedrun. Truly amazing game. When I saw another Giana Sisters game I was really happy. It feels really like Giana Sisters need more love. So, how is this game? It's a hard question. I enjoyed it for a while but not as much as this 2D remake or another game that was made on NDS. It missing something since Giana Sisters went into 3D. Sure, the world is beatiful, characters cute as always, and I love this soundtrack that gives you nostalgia vibe but... ... you know, well made 2D graphics looks much better. That's why I loved Giana Sisters DS. Level designs in Twisted Dreams are also kinda boring - it doens't make you want to explore every corner of level. Even tho I love hard platformer games Giana Sisters had few really annoying moments. Maybe it's just me, but few levels were way too long - it would be nice to have twice as many level even if they were cutted in half. Dream Rush mode is kinda confusing at first but overall it's also enjoyable. The most popular game is also, in my opinion, the most boring one. It's not bad game but doesn't bring so many happiness as it was with previous two. Playing it more than one time can be really boring.
I am not a fan of platformers, to be honest. When I got the game I was sure I would not like it at all. However, I was wrong. Giana Sisters' plot is not good, and it feels more like an excuse plot (pretty much like 8-bit era platformers), but the point where it shines is its gameplay. You play as Giana, a girl with two different personalities (Cute Giana and Punk Giana), both featuring a different skill, and the world looks different depending on which personality you're playing as at the moment. Switching personalities is something you will be constantly doing to solve puzzles, beat enemies, and I've even done it to see changes between both versions of the world's backgrounds. The game's soundtrack is great, tracks have a techno feel when you're playing as Cute Giana, and are metal-ish when playing as Punk Giana. If you're into challenging platformers with quite easy controls, this is a must have. However, I'd recommend getting it while it's on sale.
I never considered myself a platfomer fan, because I just never played them a lot. Mario was never my thing. But on PC one sees a lot of good platformers lately. Since Super Meat Boy to Limbo, the genre is really spawning some classic titles. And I have no reason to believe Giana Sisters is any less. The game is really addictive and polished. It keeps the formula simple, by giving you an interesting premise and works on that. You can change the whole world, between a pretty and fairy tale-ish one, and a grim and dark one. The thing is, your character also changes between worlds and it has different abilities. One is more aggressive and the other one is more passive. The game keeps this idea simple, so you don't have to have a lot of things on your mind. And it works wonderfully exactly for that. The game is fun, and keeps it simple. On the other regards, visual and music, the game is just amazing. Its music is really something else and it totally gets you on the mood. The same with the graphics. The whole world changing feature is helped by some awesome graphics. With a 2.5D style, the game looks beautiful, more than most platformers. So, with that said, if you're a fan of platformers, just go get this. And if you're not, then you might as well start.
