Face-Off: Oddworld New 'n' Tasty

Digital Foundry:

The Unity engine-powered remake compared on PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty is a successful remake of the classic game, merging familiar gameplay mechanics with a complete visual overhaul that is both modern and attractive, while retaining the humour and spirit of the original game. It's a Eurogamer Recommended title on PS4 and from a gameplay perspective, it's just as compelling on PS3, Xbox One and PC too. On a technical level, the same core level of graphical quality is present across the PS4, Xbox One and PC, but the inability to hold 60fps jars on console - especially on the Microsoft platform.

The game is horrible optimized. This game should run 60fps solid. Anyways the PS4 version runs way better than Xbox One.

It is at 60 on the pc. The console versions are stuck at 35-50 which the article describes as no man's land producing worse smoothness than the locked ps3 at 30fps.

Devs should have gave an option to lock 30.

Ghost_of_Tsushima940d ago

No the developer should've optimized the game better. This game is hardly taxing in the first place.

PS4 beats xbone on CPU power yet again. The majority of games now on PS4 are better than xbone graphically AND performance wise.

Xbox fanboys always seem to think developers are sacrificing performance for 1080p. This isn't the case. The PS4 is simply that much more powerful.

Higher resolution + Better graphical effects + Better framerate is common on most multiplats now for PS4.

No amount of cloud, DX12, freeing resources or secret sauce is going to change that. #dealwithit

seriously a game with this level graphics not getting 60fps on both doesnt show anything about either. it can be ran far better with an average pc

Then why did DMC definitive addition perform better on the XB1 than PS4? The performance of this game has to do with the engine and coding not just the hardware running the game.

Angelin939d ago

That game has nothing intensive when it comes to graphics and if has FPS drops on XBONE then it's the developer's fault. And this comes from a PS4 user that's also a game dev.

@Gamer777 DmC Definitive Edition PS4 was patched to enable the missing AF with no loss of performance. It was a bug, that's all.

Overall should be: PS1 > PS4 > X1. I really appreciate that Lorne Lanning is reviving the Oddworld Quintology, but the original games are still light years ahead of the remastered versions. I wish they'd leave the darker look, original controls and individual screens.

PS4 version looks better than xbox one.

NobleRed940d ago

PS4 Version better framerate. Good to be a ps4pwner.

freshslicepizza940d ago

runs even better on the pc and not a powerful one needed either. good to be a pc gamer.
