Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is a 2.5D cinematic platformer. You play as Abe, a mudokon who's trying to save his race from extinction.
Pro Great platforming gameplay
The gameplay consists of exploring the many locations within Oddworld. Along the way you’ll encounter various obstacles and puzzles you’ll have to pass. This can be simple stuff like hopping through a minefield. It can be a very intense chase sequence where you have to make very precise jumps and rolls to survive. Or it can be complex puzzles with switches and security systems that even require explosives. Whichever it might be, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is always a blast.
Pro Twisted but refreshing sense of humor
While Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty has the occasional fart joke, it mostly filled with pretty dark humor. Things like posters saying "No talking to other employees" while the mouths of said employees are sewn shut. A company turning their employees into produce just to increase profits. Characters getting addicted to a drink made out of the bones of their ancestors. All of these really bizarre situations are made funny by the goofy characters with rather wacky reactions. It's the type of humor that most modern titles shy away from.
Pro Beautiful environments
There’s just so much detail in every location it’s very hard to not stop and take it all in. From the interior of the meat processing plant, filled with machinery, containers, and posters. To massive caves filled with giant tree roots, wooden structures, and enormous boulders covered in ancient writings. There’s just always so much to look at and it’s a treat for the eyes.
Con Can be quite frustrating
A lot of the levels require really fast and precise movements/jumps. If you miss the timing even slightly, your character will most like die, causing you to restart the entire section. This gets really annoying when you miss the same jump more than 10 times. To make it slightly more bearable, you should switch to the classic control scheme, which offers a lot more precision than the defaults.
