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

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee Box art Oddworld is a terrific platformer with a great sense of humor. It was one of the first games I bought with my Xbox, and I always thought it didn't quite get the credit it deserved. I never played the earlier 2D versions, so I can't say how the versions compare, but I love this 3D version. What really stands out is the sense of humor and original bizarre characters. Abe and Much are two of my favorite video game characters, and the way you can switch between the two to play cooperatively was ingenius. The game has some of the best video cut scenes in any game. Now that the game is a Platinum Hit, it is truly a great buy at $20. I give Oddworld a hearty two farts and a burp up.


The game plays very well, and it gently guides you through learning the controls in the first few levels. It gradually builds the level of difficulty, and allows the player to save anywhere at any time. All games should take a page from this book! The game plays well and each character has a unique feel and different abilities (Munch is a good swimmer and Abe is better on land).


The cut scenes rate a 6 out of 5, and the rest of the game a 4 out of 5. The character models are excellent. My only complaint is that it could use more vibrant colors within the game. As is, it is slightly color-less for such a colorful game. But overall, the graphics definately get the job done.


The voice acting/farting/burping is perfect. The rest of the sounds and music are also very competent.


Suggestions:
I definately would love to see an Oddworld 2, and I think this can become a major platforming success for the Xbox.


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