Under rating threshold (show) This game is one of the best made games ever made. Even without words or anything. A man whose wife died and he along died with her not physically but emotionally. He looks back but he knows she will won't be there. So simple yet the story line was great.

Under rating threshold (show) This is the story of Orpheus, for anyone who doesn't know; he lost his lover and travelled to the underworld to reclaim her soul. In the myth, he made a deal with Hades. She would follow him out of the underworld, but if he looked back and saw her, she would be trapped forever. He almost reached the end and thought Hades had tricked him, so looked back to check if she was following and lost her forever. The story is somewhat altered to be more of a game than a movie, but it still conveys the basic message. I gave it 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) This game is based off a greek myth about a young man who's wife died so he went to the underworld and played his instrument (I forget what it's called its a small harp) to hades. The music was so beautiful that Hates let him take his wife if he doesn't look at her well going to the overworld, but he didn't believe Hades so he turned around and she disappeared. This isn't the same story, but that's whats it based on. Thats why you can't look back.

Under rating threshold (show) For those who do not know: It is the greek myth of Orpheus (did I spell that right?) in the underworld. In a nutshell, heres the story: A great bard Orpheus lost his wife to a poisonous snake. He loved her so much, that he went to the underworld to speak with Hades. Along the way, he sung a song of such great sorrow that even some of the spirits wept. Hades agreed to let his wife return to the land of the living on one condition: That Orpheus could not look back to make sure his wife was still there. He climbed the steps from the underworld to the land of the living, and when he was almost there, he looked back, and the wife's spirit dispersed. THE END.

Under rating threshold (show) I wish I could like this game more, but enemies coming from behind and platform jumps that you have to solve in about two seconds before you die are just aggravating. I barely got past Cerberus. An easy version with everything slowed down for those who just want the story would be really nice. I've read that the story is wonderful, but I can't finish the game.

Under rating threshold (show) ah and by the way i think about a different meaning of the end..never look back...when u focus too much on what u lost u get sucked into a nightmare , trying to find a reason,trying to give a sense to your loss...there's a high chance you won't come back and even if you find the solution,even if you manage to get back, probably,it's already too late,probably,now you are just another ghost...

Under rating threshold (show) ok i have come to this conclusion...his soul is stuck in time and space so everytime he saves his wife his soul reanimates after disappering andhe is stuck in a time hole forbidding him to leave.... (omg i sound like a scientist) and i love it being mixed in with greek mythology

Under rating threshold (show) 1: for all you losers that say the dog doesn't die, shoot his rear, not his head. 2: Don't say the game sucks just bc you suck AT IT. 3: for the last boss shoot him on the way down, then jump and shoot again before the platform disappears. Also, I found it easier to kill him quick rather than being patient. 4: You don't have to kill everyone, so when it comes to snakes, jump over them! Great game 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) To me, first, the meaning of the title was litterally not to look back not to get his beloved gone. But then, when he looked at himself alone in front of the grave, the title was written again, "Don't look back", which gave it another meaning : what he did by trying to get his woman back was trying to change his past. He had looked back. That's why he disappeared ! Nevermind, no need to talk about the game : it's deep enough for everyone to have their own thought.

Under rating threshold (show) to those who dont know this game is based on ancient greek mythology about when Orpheos goes to the underworld to save his dead wife uredessy from the Greek god Hades and when he gets there he plays a very sad song(he was a master of the harp)so hades tells him he can bring her back but he can not look back or else she will be dragged back to the underworld. +this so people can see whats the meaning of this game

Under rating threshold (show) I wonder..... the story says that Orpheus can't look back until he reaches the upper world. Did anyone try to look back once you got out of the underworld and before you reached the grave?
