    Sly-looking puzzle platformer that has lot to say even eighteen years after the first release. If you didn't know the original, you wouldn’t recognize this one is a remake. [Issue#251]

    Oddworld New'n'Tasty is the best remake of a game I have played so far, a true testament to the love and respect the devs of Just Add Water have for the original Abe's Oddysee. Even old Oddworld fans will find themselves amazed by the stunning visuals and the general redesign the title offers. A must-buy.

    This is how you do a remake. Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is as much a piece of art as it is a just a thoroughly fantastic puzzle platformer. [March 2015]

    Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is an excellent puzzle platform game that managed to revive the legacy of its predecessor. It's fun from the old school, that is not troubled to work with mechanics and level design that are almost twenty years old. And that you explore during one hour twenty times or you blast to pieces? That is yours and Abe's destiny.
  5. Oddworld Abe's Oddysee was one of the best platform games ever. Abe's remake is worthy of praise. If you like platform games, you will be pleased with Oddworld New 'n' Tasty.

    It’s a great reason to (re)visit Abe and his odd world, especially if you haven’t played the original game.

    If you've never played an Oddworld, this is the best place to start. [Apr 2015, p.56]

    Even if you have played through the original already, the enhanced visuals and polished gameplay are reasons enough to take the "oddysee" back.

    A loving interpretation that captures the spirit and charm of days gone perfectly.

    Taken altogether, New 'n' Tasty still makes the Oddworld experience totally worth it.

    Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is great remake in terms of quality, remastering the original experience in a fantastic way. The original story still holds up, and while the gameplay may be a bit too hard for some newcomers, it's still rewarding, despite a few not-so-great aspects, like the sound effects.

    Still, for those who take the time to persevere, New ‘n’ Tasty proves to be as delectable a treat as Abe’s original Odyssey all those years ago.

I remember getting Abe's Odyssey for the PS1 and just falling in love with everything about this game. The environment, the characters, the storyline, the struggles. Everything is executed to such perfection. Being able to relive those memories on the new systems with updated graphics is a dream come true. Reboot status: epic. Full Review »
