Second only to Halo, and in some ways better,
This review is from: Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee (Xbox) (Video Game)
This was the first game I ever played on my Xbox, and it gave me a very good first impressions of the console. Its full of personality and humor, has beautiful arty graphics and even better cutscenes, wonderful voice acting despite the fact that only 3 people did every single voice and 80% of the voices was the done by Lorne Lanning, company CEO, game creator and designer, and script write. The music is wonderful, though not that memorable. Gameplay might be somewhat slow and frusturating for some, but you have unlimited lives, so there are no restraints, thought the difficulty level is still perfect. The gameplay is also very well done in the way that on every level after the first 2 or 3, Abe and Munch must work as a team using their abilitys- Munch can use mechanical things, swim very well, command fuzzles(Cute little creatures with nasty bites) and go fast on land when in a wheelchair. Abe can command Mudokons(His race) posess and control enemies, go faster on land then Munch and jump higher. The game is very well balanced between the two charecters. The game is also enjoyable for all age groups- 8 year olds will love this, as will 50 year olds. I highly recommend this title(And when your done, buy Halo!).
