Thankfully Oddworld: New ‘n’ tasty proved to be slightly more successful in generating a response than Bound By Flame. With that being said, there was still only a handful on you that contributed to WeView this week.
We’ll kick things off with Kjkg who is “absolutely loving” New ‘n’ Tasty so far. After picking it up “just at the weekend” they’ve “played it quite extensively”, and also admitted they have had to stop “a couple of times to admire the background detail”. For Kjkg the “smartest thing the game has achieved is it manages to have all the nostalgic feelings coming though while playing but at the same time, feel like a whole new game you are experiencing”.
Lyts1985 was also a fan of New ‘n’ Tasty calling it a “fantastic game”. They said “everything has been beautifully and painstakingly recreated to such a point where someone who hasn’t heard of Abe wouldn’t believe it was originally a PSOne game”.
They then followed this with a rather wonderful comparison by saying New ‘n’ Tasty is “like copping off with an old ex girlfriend at a school reunion 10yrs later, it feels like you’re playing a brand new game” adding “as someone who played the original, your muscle memory kicks in and you instantly remember how to play it”.
After purchasing the “game on launch day after months of anticipation”, Basketballgaz says they were “instantly taken back” to their youth. They praised “the recent update that adds the run/jump button press” as a “great addition”, but sadly they had to criticise the fact that Abe’s “voice did not sound the same”.
Lastly we have Lambchop who like Kjkg stopped to admire the game and took “some lovely screenshots” that were “ideal for wallpapers”. As someone who doesn’t complete many games “ this one is one of the fairly elite group of games like FFVII, Tomb Raider and Uncharted Games” that they stuck with to the very end.
There were only three of you that gave New ‘n’ Tasty a rating, but each of you gave the game a definite Buy It. Although New ‘n’ Tasty is a remastered version of the original PS One classic it certainly is its own game and one that’s worthy of giving a go. Tomorrow we’ll be taking a look at another remake in the form of Metro Redux. Replacing it in the poll is Surgeon Simulator: Anniversary Edition.
