Oddworld: Abes Odyssey was a unique platform adventure game originally released on the playstation 1 in 1997. You are an Alien Slave trapped inside a meat factory ready to be processed to feed your masters.

The hero Abes decides that he is not cool with that and so sets out to escape and also take as many of his people with him. So the object, complete the level and save as many people as possible.

The game spawned several sequels but none were as good as the original. That’s why its great that the creators have re-released the game with a massive hi definition makeover.

With massively updated graphics the game looks spectactuar and the tweaks to the audio make it sound spectacular as well. The big change though is the added ragdoll physics, the way abe and the other creatures move and fall is much more realistic and funny at the same time. Plus now you can quicksave during the game rather than only at the end of levels making it a bit easier.

Everything about the game is bigger and better while maintaining the character of the original, in fact improving it.

Even the name is updated

Oddworld: New and Tasty is a 4 out of 5
