So to start off I remember playing some of this game back a long time ago but never did get far as I found it extremely difficult at the time and i thought this game is going to be a challenge and yes it still is so far Oddworld is amazing the game looks great and is very challenging cant wait to see what more it has to offer.
Abe’s Odysee or Oddworld New N Tasty starts off with Abe (Mudokon) Employee of the year at rupture farm he was one night while on duty of waxing the floors he realises that Molluck has an evil plan to put Mudokons in the New n Tasty product so Abe needs to escape and try and save his fellow Mudokons you will go through various level battling various species and discovering you own abilities. The adventure to this game is amazing and very amusing, overall the story to New n Tasty is amazing and if you enjoy a great and interesting story then New n Tasty is definitely worth checking out.
The gameplay to Oddworld is a side scrolling puzzle adventure the game features very difficult scenarios such as sneaking past sleeping enemies, distracting enemies, jumping to platforms (Sounds much easier than it is) the gameplay of Oddworld takes a while to get use to esspecially understand your surroundings knowing where the enemies will be and also knowing how to advance sneaking is always the best option but it very slow so this game takes a lot of thinking. at the start you may find the gameplay very difficult to get use to, but you will get use to it after a few tries. the overall gameplay is very fun and amusing and puzziling i definitely think that the gameplay to oddworld is one of the strongest parts to the game.
The graphics to oddworld are very good the colour scheme is brilliant the way each level is very creepy and dark looking I personally think this adds to the effect of the game and makes each level design seem fresh and new I also like the character design because the way each character is made they look very different from each other. The graphics to this game are amazing and overall I personally think its one of the strongest parts to this game .
The sound to this game is good the soundtrack fits each level very well but I think overall the best part to the sound is Abe’s voice its just amazing everytime I hear Abe’s voice i just laugh to myself as I think its brilliant also the sound effect to movement and the surroundings are awesome the sound to Oddworld is definitely a strong point.
Going through this game on every difficulty and trying to save all of the workers that will add to the difficulty and will definitely make the game last longer.
Oddworld New N Tasty is amazing and for any people who played the original game should definitely jump at getting this ive really enjoyed this game and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a game with a challenge.
Rating : 8.5/10
- An Enjoyable Story
- Funny Characters
- Awesome Level Design
- Challenging Gameplay
- Great Voice Acting (Abe)
- Annoying Controls
- I Found that the game can get boring at times especially when retrying certain parts over again.
