IM PLAYIN discuss why they believe that New 'n' Tasty is every bit as good as the original Oddworld title.
"It’s rare for me to think that a remake is as good as the original, especially when that ‘original’ is one of my favourite games from my childhood. For me, Oddworld: Abe’s Odyssey is one of those games. Abe’s Odyssey was at the pinnacle of platforming games back in the late 90s on the PS1, and the game sucked up hours upon hours of my time when I was growing up. Its tricky puzzles, slightly creepy undertones and beautiful graphics helped to make it one of my favourite games of that generation. So, when I heard that ‘Just Add Water’ were remaking the game “from the ground up” I was both sceptical and excited. I was excited because I was relishing the opportunity to play that wonderful game again, but I was sceptical due to my concerns that the remake might not live up to the wonders of the original. My scepticism, however, was unnecessary."
