Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee – Consumer Guide

According to ESRB, this game contains: Comic Mischief, Violence

Parents have nothing to fear from the interactive portions of Munch's Oddysee, but a couple of pointedly dark cut-scenes earn the T rating alone. However, the themes of environmentalism and rescuing creatures from harm are decidedly positive, which might make some consider Munch's Oddysee suitable for younger audiences. Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee is, at best, an interesting but deeply flawed game with an above-average plot and decent length.

Fans of the 2D Oddworld games, Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus, might be miffed at just how differently Munch's Oddysee plays, but if the character designs were the big draw before, they may still have a good time with this one.

Action gamers will quickly become frustrated with Munch's truly laborious pace and simplistic, repetitive nature.
