The Oddbox

Recently I've been playing the games from the Oddboxx
(Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath) on steam.

These four games are quite old, the first two games (Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus) were originally released on the PS1 and have been ported to PC, so the graphics are quite bad, but the gameplay is quite good in my opinion. from what I understand Oddworld Inhabitants plans to make an HD version with updated graphics in a better game engine.

The second two games (Munch's Oddysee and Stranger's Wrath) were originally released on the Xbox but have also been ported to PC. Munch's Oddysee is a 3d platformer and is quite bad because of various little things, like for example: the keyboard controls are slow and have been mapped out rather poorly and some of the voices appear to have been copy pasted from Abe's Exoddus. Stranger's Wrath however is quite good, its a first/third person action/shooter with good gameplay, the controls are nice and fast and the graphics are anywhere near as bad as the first two Oddworld games.

I recommend the Oddboxx to everyone, three of the four games in it are really enjoyable.

  2. One might call the control mapping for Munch's Oddysee a little too odd.
