STAFF REVIEW of Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee (Xbox)

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee Box art Don't play this game, unless you want to be sucked in by a game! For a lack of better words, "This game is INCREDIBLE". I honestly don't know how else to put it...the folks over at Oddworld Inhabitants did a fantastic job putting together this package. When they say this game needed to come to a 3D world, they weren't kidding! The characters, the story, the graphics, the music, the sounds, the gameplay and the immersion, are simply outstanding. This very dark, unique and creative environment is well thought out to keep you hangin' on for a long time! Buy this game!


The overall gameplay is very well done, you can play thru many parts without a simple peep at the manual. There are all kinds of little helpers along the way to guide you on your path, on finding Munch! The controls are simple and easy to use. The camera movements are excellent, thus you don't bounce all over the place trying to find yourself with the camera. Overall, the game play is very well put together. The small thing that got on my nerves is the camera rotation orientation was backwards for me. And the character sometimes ran too fast, when you had to be careful in certain situations. But these small shortcomings doesn't effect the overall gameplay that much.


The visuals are STUNNING! The water, the smoke, the skins...EVERYTHING has extremely well crafted. The attention to details is quite remarkable! The use of the Xbox unit's graphical abilities is used very well....stuff almost looks real. And I'm a pretty picky person visually.


The sound effects, the musical score are also extremely well crafted. Every crack, fart, tip-toe, dog growl and speech is done well within contex, not over-done. Bravo! The music soundtrack is very "movie" like in Dolby Digital 5.1...the Floor woofer even kicked in on some parts! The sound quality will not let you down.


Suggestions:
Sequel, sequel and sequel...the Oddworld is a very unique and creative environment. Keep up to good work! Don't fire the sound and graphics people.


Overall: 10.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 10.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
