    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Nice game. Nice memories. Real games without DLCz. What happened to all these games. I do not have to say anything more. But i need to write one hundred and fifty characters. Expand

    Interesante y bien ejecutado. Nivel de dificultad razonable. Innova y crea escuela.

    This game is a pioneer and a classic. But it has severe problems that every other Oddworld game, including Munch's Oddysee, solves. The main one is the poor difficulty balance. The checkpoints are too sparse given the difficult platforming, which leads to very high iteration times. The backgrounds aren't as interesting as everything but the Xbox games; they feel too similar too each other,This game is a pioneer and a classic. But it has severe problems that every other Oddworld game, including Munch's Oddysee, solves. The main one is the poor difficulty balance. The checkpoints are too sparse given the difficult platforming, which leads to very high iteration times. The backgrounds aren't as interesting as everything but the Xbox games; they feel too similar too each other, especially in RuptureFarms. Eventually you just get sick of ventilation pipes and barrels. The gameplay isn't as refined as the others. All I'm really saying here is that this FEELS like the first game in the series. Play New 'n' Tasty, it's better in every way except for some of the lighting. Expand

  1. If not for "Final Fantasy 7" this would probably be my pick for game of the year.
  2. The game is just designed and presented so damn well, that it hooks you in and keeps you coming back for more. It's one of those rare games that require players to think before they react.

    "Out of this World"-style gameplay never looked so good. [Jan 2004, p.188]
