Summary

An oddly odd game.

The Good

The graphics were excellent like every other Xbox game, but what is really appealing is that you have another character apart from Abe to control in the Oddworld, I love the way that, when Munch is stuck, you change to Abe and solve the puzzle with Abe, opening a door or preventing a trap for Munch, and I like the way Abe is used for water and Munch is used for land, the game is also designed in a way that you don't leave one character miles, maybe even worlds away from the second (Resident Evil Survivor ring a bell?). A Great game.

The Bad

A bit too difficult and a bit too gross for some tastes. But really there's hardly anything wrong with this Xbox game.

The Bottom Line

For a person who hated any other Oddworld game, it's quite a surprise that I like this one, well the third is much better than the 1st and 2nd.
