    Munch's Oddysee HD is a pleasant "remember yesterday" that can help you discover again the magic of the first three-dimensional platform.

It's definitely a very interesting game, very odd just like the title implies. It doesn't take a typical approach to gameplay. The best way I can think of to describe it would be to call it a 3rd person puzzle game. For most of the game you control two characters in large open areas solving puzzles and rescuing other creatures on your way to the exit. It's a heck of a lot of fun and it is truly satisfying to complete a level. It's unlike anything I've ever played before. If you're looking for something different this is a great game to try. That being said it does have some issues, most of which are thanks to how old it is.

    Controls and character movements are stiff and sometimes awkward, becoming especially noticeable every time you have to jump. Even with the HD coat graphics aren't impressive, but that's no biggie. By far the games biggest flaw is the fact that you have to babysit all of the characters you rescue. You have to constantly control where they go and make sure they don't get killed. This makes the game kind of a chore at times, especially when you're trying to protect the characters from enemies. All in all these issues are irritating, but they don't ruin the experience. The games (usually) fantastic level design more than makes up for the more tedious moments this title can offer.

    If you're looking for something completely unique to play then look no further. Some minor shifts in quality do not detract from what is otherwise a great game.
