Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: All in all, Oddworld is an enjoyable game. Not too stressful or repetitive, but with a strong plot and graphics that'll satisfy most. Replay value is medium, and it crosses enough genre lines to make it a good game for a lot of different gamers. If you didn’t get a bundle with this game in it yet, I suggest you add it on when you get your Xbox.

Game Over Online

  • Excerpt: Oddworld started out as a 2D franchise on other platforms but quickly found a niche amongst the Playstation crowd. Its 'defection' to Microsoft was widely publicized and a cursory examination at some of the technical artistry involved serves to explain why a 'defection' was indeed necessary. Like most of its predecessors, Oddworld mixes its highly quirky humor with a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek satire on our capitalist, big corporation oligopolies.

Game Over Online
28 March 2002
  • Excerpt: The introduction of Munch is quite a drastic change from previous Oddworld titles. However, the use of it is quite pragmatic. Munch and Abe, although both strange and out of this world, operate differently with Munch being more of an aquatic creature for water-filled levels. Abe, on the other hand, is better at land-based monkey acrobatics. As such, the obstacles and puzzles thrown at you are somewhat different.

  • Excerpt: Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee had long been the marketing darling of Xbox, due in no small part to the fact that Lorne Lanning, Oddworld's self-serving president and creative director consistently, unashamedly and unremittingly decries the PlayStation2 as a inept box of inferiority not worthy of his highly advanced and elaborate Oddworld games.

Munch's Oddysee

Gamecell
18 April 2001
  • Conclusion: Most of us were thinking that Abe and Munch's new adventure would be similar to the previous Oddworld games, but it appears to be almost a completely new perspective of Oddworld, the game gives you a view of outside the dark, depressing and gloomy factory areas of much of the first two games and takes you into the bright and happy (well almost) happy areas that are relatively untouched by the Industrial terror.
  • Pros: Abe & Munch's relationship is vital to progress through Oddworld, and there are some clever puzzles., Abe's slapping motion.
  • Cons: The game seemed to be too short, and the gameplay is quite repetitive.
