The first level acts as a tutorial for those not used to the 3D environment after playing the previous 2D games. You are almost spoon-fed controls and it feels less like you playing the game, but the game playing you.
You switch between Abe and Much to solve levels. Each offers a range of skills to help solve any situation. Abe can control Mudokons and posses other creatures. Munch can swim and command little blobs.
Aiming in the 3D world is pretty difficult, with you having to position yourself perfectly. Also, the B button seems to be used for everything, and at times can get rather confusing. Also don’t even think about going down any tight corridors, as the camera will have a fit. I found that the level design to be quite boring and bland, and it didn’t make me want to play the game.
Technically the port is perfect. It runs at 6pfps without any sign of a blip or stutter. The game plays the same docked or in handheld mode. The problem is, the game itself just isn’t that good. It’s clunky and doesn’t play that well.
Overall, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee on Nintendo Switch has had so much time spent behind it. But its let down by the gameplay, which hasn’t changed since it was released originally.
