5.0 out of 5 stars great fun and very enjoyable
This game is one of my top games already and i've only had it for about two weeks. The graphics are amazing. Some of the levels were pretty hard but some were short and simple.Munch and Abe are not at all the same, for example Abe cannot swim but Munch can and Abe is quite fast and Munch very slow. Everyone is made up and is sort of weird. Fuzzles are cute but very...

3.0 out of 5 stars Oddworld review
Oddworld Munch's Oddyssee is not as good as any of the other games. I think that the 3D graphics and gameplay ruined the feel of all the previous games. I am disappointed that this game was ever released and I am sad to have ever purchased it. I would recommend this for a young child who has no concept of what games can be. If you want to run around with little purpose...

4.0 out of 5 stars Review, 28 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
What made the first Oddworld so fantastic was the integration of story, action, art design and sour humor that made it one of the most polished packages I've ever seen on a console. You may not have enjoyed the 2D Prince of Persia style gameplay, or maybe you didn't like the creepy character design -- but as a package, it was hard to argue that Oddworld as a whole was the product of a unique company, and a unique mind. Those of us that loved every bit of the original game -- and I'm one of them -- felt like we'd finally found a platform game for grown ups.
Munch is also that, but only in spurts and moments. The jump to 3D has been a tough one on the series, and rather than tweak the game design altogether, they opted to mimic the 2D "learn from death" style, which plays out as slow, repetitive, and at times tedious in the large and more complex 3D environments. What's worse is that the game and the storyline aren't integrated at all, with cutscenes wedged betweens levels that have no thematic connection.
The final product comes off as anything but polished, and suffers from a lack of variety, and an overabundance of repetition that keeps this game from truly shining like I wished it would. As much as I like the characters and the design of the new Munch game, I'm still hoping for the true spiritual sequel to my good old Abe.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Game for all the family, 12 Dec 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
A quirky game. Excellent graphics - although scripted there is always more than one way to complete each level. The controls are quite natural and even to non hard-core gamers although this game is challenging it is very achievable. My kids watched us grown-ups playing it with as much enjoyment as if they were watching telly (and offering advice on strategy). Abe's bodily functions are always good for a laugh as is a very squeaky wheelchair. It has puzzles and platform elements and you can save game WHENEVER YOU WANT - Hoorah - especially as death is never far away! on many levels, however, a Kamikaze approach is firmly recommended. At nett cost to you of approx 20pence per hour - ENJOY

4.0 out of 5 stars A well entertaining platformer, 18 Feb 2003

This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
The third game in the Oddworld series was originaly promised to be on PS2, but then all of a sudden it came out on X-Box for some reason. Graphically it isn't anything the PS2 couldn't handle, relativly detailed textures and it only runs at 30fps @60hz or 25fps at 50hz. Now the Oddworld adventure is in full 3D and the game is shared with two characters, Abe our original hero and introducing Munch and you can use them together or alternativly depending on the mission. If you are a veteran to this series than all the usual play methods won't be new to you all though they are far more clever now. If you are new, well the basics is that you have to rescue your friends and depending on what the mission is you may have to use them to help you get through the levels, also Abe can possess enemies and Munch is a great swimmer. Not exactly a ground breaking game but now it is at a budget price is definatly worth a look at, a funny and entertaining game.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oddworld review, 9 July 2010
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
Oddworld Munch's Oddyssee is not as good as any of the other games. I think that the 3D graphics and gameplay ruined the feel of all the previous games. I am disappointed that this game was ever released and I am sad to have ever purchased it. I would recommend this for a young child who has no concept of what games can be. If you want to run around with little purpose and simply play a game then this is the one for you. If you have followed the line of these games I assure you that this will be a disappointment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Abe triumphs in the third dimension., 9 Oct 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
What a glorious slice of gaming this is.
If anything its slightly spoiled by not being as testing as Abes 2D appearances on the PS1...
...but still.... hugely enjoyable, clever, visually stunning and sometimes "laugh-out-loud" funny. Munch whizzing around on a squeaky wheelchair is an image that will stay with me for a long time. Then using him to round up sheep is the icing on the cake. That's just one of many stand out moments in this beautiful adventure. I won't spoil any more classic moments but I really recommend this game.....it's certainly not for the easily discouraged or casual gamer and it's slightly "off the wall" but please don't let that put you off buying it.
I was totally absorbed from start to finish. At times it was almost gaming as art.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sound does not work properly, 10 Aug 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
I got this game due to the fact that ABE is a great game, but this is the second time i have bought this game and the sound does not work after the first level.
It must be a problem playing this game on the new Xbox, so my advice is if you want to try this very good game PLEASE DONT buy it unless you have an original Xbox as the lack of sound is not only downer its realy hard to play Abe with no Abe speak.
Hope this helps! Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee

5.0 out of 5 stars Oddworld: Much's oddysee, 27 April 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oddworld : Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
Anyone with an XBOX, should make a beeline for this game!! After years of following Abe on the playstation, my expectations were far lower, but as you play and see the various animated film clips, meet other characters and really get into this game it can become adictive!! After completetion, I removed the game save and have started again!! Munch's chair could do with a bit of oil though...
