  1. Much of Munch's goodness has been taken and converted to fit the Game Boy Advance.
  2. If any more Oddworld games are brought to the GBA, I really hope that they go back to the side-scrolling format. In fact, a direct port of the original Oddworld for Playstaion wouldn't be a bad idea, and would have surely come out better than this game did.
  3. While there were moments in the game that I really enjoyed, the areas of frustration and touchy controls made the full game less than enjoyable.
  4. This edition is uninspired, taking all the good parts of Munch's Oddysee away and leaving the rest of the package to fend for itself.

    Though the seamless integration of action, puzzles and even a tad of platforming is pulled off well, the package it's presented in is rather unappealing. [Nov 2003, p.101]

    Worst GBA Game I have ever played. A Horrible port from the Xbox Version don't waste your time on this piece of crap. Bad Graphics and sound effects

    Bad graphics, incomprehensible sound, make this a bad transition from the Xbox game. May have to trade this one in for something more fun.
