    Oddworld New ‘n Tasty is the perfect example of what a remake should be; it keeps a fantastic game and just adds every conceivable thing to improve it. There are too many awesome little touches to mention.

    Seventeen years after its original release, Abe's Oddysee is still one of the most strange, brilliant, original and funny platform around. This new edition is, indeed, tasty, and no player should miss it.

    If you are are still skeptical of giving it a go, maybe just try thinking of it as "an adventure through a genocidal meat factory with plenty of explosions and telepathy." That may change your mind.

    Minor technical problems aside, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a game that recognises the limitations and shortcomings of the original. It addresses these, somehow making 17-year-old mechanics malleable, and shapes them into a mould that painlessly accepts contemporary production standards.

    For some of the hardcore fans of the original, New ‘n’ Tasty may disappoint simply because it is different, but – as someone who saved every Mudokon in Abe’s Oddysee – I had a great time revisiting this classic.

    When it works, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a beautiful, quirky, and devious puzzle platformer that deserves a spot alongside the likes of LIMBO, Another World and the original Abe’s Oddysee in the gaming canon. Unfortunately, it doesn’t work nearly often enough.

This version of the game produced by J.A.W maintains what makes the original a classic while adding several improvements that don't comprimise the creative vision that the original had. For example, the game has added versatility in its difficulty, allowing people who felt frustrated with the original enjoy the game. Controlling Abe feels diferent, it feels better, the controls seem to respond better, but there was no loss of the feeling that I controling a real person, or should I say, a real creature. Somehow they managed to find that perfect balance betwen responsive controls and the feel that i am controlling a real penson.This has always been one of the things I liked most about the original games, the fact that you were controlling a real person, this combined with the extremely peculiar world that Lorne Lanning created passed that first positive first impression that the game provide, thats what called the player's attention. However, the appeal of the game went beyond that, it went far deeper, the game have excellent game mechanics and there's a sensational narrative, with several implied messages that can be reflected by the player, allowing him to take his own conclusions. More important than that is the fact that the gameplay is in total confluence with the story, it is totally different from modern games that compromise the story just because shoot 'em in the head is what sells,it isn't that game that developers create a cgi scene there they want you to care about the character, and when he gives you control of the character he send hordes of enemies for you to shoot , I don't see any person who can sympathize with a murderer. Any violence in oddworld, the creators can get away with it through irony. The gameplay isnt against the narrative, this is one of that special games that the gameplay doesnt work against the narrative, it works in favor of the narrative, making a emotional atachment with the player and the character of the game that few other mediums can achieve, its one of that special games that is very atmosferic.All the improvements help to create a more compealing atmosfere, the game looks more real than ever, the jump to 3D and no flipscreen help the game create a more cinematic feel ( sometimes the camera angles change ) . More important than ever is , despite being an all new game, this remake keeps what made the original apealing, it has its creative vision, it is a remake that remaster the classic to the 21st century. One of the things i absolute love about this game is the pace of it, it provides a nice challenge but at the same time it isnt that much that game that you are in constant battle and must have very fast reflexes, its a game that you can take your time, you have to be patient to be a good player, and the best thing is that because of the great controls i aways feel that i died because of me and not because of the game.

    Molecada Nutella que não sabe o que é um jogo bom. Jogadores de Freefire não deveriam ter direito de dar uma nota.

    OddWorld games are so memorable to all PlayStation One fans. Having OddWorld remake based on its original news was one the best news for thisOddWorld games are so memorable to all PlayStation One fans. Having OddWorld remake based on its original news was one the best news for this gaming industry. The wait was totally worth it and the final product is just as awesome as I was expecting. Everything we loved about the original oddworld is here along with 3D graphics and a more living looking world. THe unique art style of the game is more appearing than before and its just fantastic with all the awesome choice of colors in the game.
    gameplay is awesome, for the first time ever in the series we are actually able to adjust the difficulty, the game features lots of improvements over the original game and as well all the memorable environments and levels are all created in the 3D form.
    the level of challenge is pretty much easy on normal difficulties so if u are looking for a true OddWorld experience then go for the hardest one. The number of MudKons are increased from 99 to 299 as well. Overall this game an awesome game and every penny you pay for it is worth it. Please buy and support this game !
    only con i have to mention is the unnecessary co-op mode, i would have prefer more level of contents.

Good graphics and interesting story and cutscenes. However felt the jumping and physics of the game were very challenging making it frustrating. Also it was only until halfway through the game that I realised how to actually save the creatures, and by then half had been lost. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Oddworld New n Tasty is fair remake of a PS1 classic. The graphics are crisp, but the control scheme is let down. This issue raises to its peak during the final level where you are faces with a challenge where you require pin point accurate movements, and find inconsistencies are all over the place. The game eventually shows that the control input is probably the biggest challenge of the game, and not the puzzles so much. Expand

    I played and finished Abe's Odyssey a few times and it was a piece of art.

    I bought the "New & Tasty" expecting it would be the very similar at least, but a lot of the original game is "missing". "New & Tasty" feels like an incomplete, rushed piece of garbage sold through the original's name.

    The controls need SERIOUS work as it sub-par in comparison to the original game (and most games of the time) - the new game is also more frustrating than enjoyable due to the glitchy mechanics sloppy programming, and plain lazy execution.

    This could have been an opportunity to release another great game, but there are way too many negatives to leave a good impression. Unfortunately "New & Tasty" aims big, but falls horribly short.
