Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee Review

Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants Publisher: Microsoft
Release Date: November 15, 2001 Also On: None

The Oddworld series has been one of weird and odd stories about Abe saving other mudokaians from a cruel and deadly fate of becoming food. Now along with that, Munch is placed in the game to help Abe and to save the fuzzles and his brothers. Together you save their world in your own sick, twisted, and somewhat smelly way.

Oddworld has always played easy since its Playstation One days. The Xbox game has no exception. The first two levels in the game are basically the tutorial levels for learning how to control Abe and Munch. Players will catch on easy and be playing the game with ease. That’s not saying the game itself is easy to complete though.

The graphics are more than extraordinary. The cut scenes are as good as the movies and the game play is almost the same as them. The water ripples like it should in real life but this of course isn’t a real life game. The characters have facial expressions that show how they are feeling throughout the game.

The sound is great for the 3rd Oddworld. The voice acting fits the games characters splendidly. The in-game music plays well with the actions in the game changing at times to foreshadow an event. The sound can get better but this does just fine for the first time on the Xbox.

There is no other game that is like this or else the game wouldn’t be calling Oddworld. The story is unlike any other and is probably one of the more disgusting ones filled with farting and belching which is appealing to most guys. Even girls will like this game because of the sadness of it. In the beginning, after all of Munch’s brothers have been taken, he is all alone. He calls for his family and nobody answers, then when you think he has found someone, it falls into a trap and is too captured.

Munch’s Oddysee unlike the other Oddworld games take a long time to beat spanning over 50 levels full of many adventure for Abe and Munch to face. The story is what will sink players into the game and force them not to stop playing. You will never see a more original and more ODD then Oddworld.
