    It is an okay game, but far (almost nothing) from what it could and should have been. The puzzles are way too easy if not repetitive and require quick reflexs rather than actual thinking. It would probably be found entertaining to young gamers due to the lack of some type of seriousness and difficulty.

    Shines like a sequined dress at a Hollywood premiere. Though not perfect by any stretch of the imagination, Oddysee is pretty to look at, and remarkably fun to play. [Jan 2002, p.78]
  2. The cartoon-like graphics are very cute — especially the pre-rendered cut-scene sequences — and the game play is challenging, though it might be a tad repetitive after a while.
  3. The game is beautiful and offers plenty of platform gaming excitement that wouldn’t be possible on the PS2 or even the GameCube.
