Just as Abe's Oddysee was a classic of the PlayStation era, so too should Oddworld: New n' Tasty be a classic of the modern age. More than just a remake, this is a contemporary puzzle-platformer that charms, exasperates, and delights. This is how you do a reboot. Whether you're new to the series, or a veteran of the PSX days, New n' Tasty is a damn fine slice of meaty entertainment.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is quite a wonderful remake, even if it can't stay clear of its framerate problems. The game has seen a complete overhaul that feels right at home with the Wii U crowd. It is a lovely 2.5D puzzle-platformer where focusing on your surroundings is the highest priority. If you can forgive a few missteps and love to experiment, you will no regrets playing this one to completion.

If anyone knows how to bring a classic onto modern stage, it’s Just Add Water. Not just an excellent port of a great title, but a solid game in its own right, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is fully able to proudly rub shoulders with any puzzle-platformer released in the last ten years.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty has had a protracted journey to the Wii U, and remnants of that legacy can be found here. Overall, however, we have an attractive, beautifully designed and clever platformer on the eShop, which is also fairly unique on the store. Sometimes a wait is worthwhile, and this one's odyssey to reach Nintendo hardware was worth the effort.

All things considered, Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is a fine addition to the Wii U eShop lineup. It’s one of the more polished titles on the service, and has a good length and value to it. It’s a bit of a shame that after the long wait the GamePad is used simply as Off-TV and the framerate issues can be noticeable at times, but if you are primarily a Wii U owner, this is game worth owning.

Criativo, divertido e interessante, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty é dos poucos que merece fazer parte da colecção de todos os que tenham uma Wii U. Mesmo para quem não conheça o original, esta versão está muito bem concebida tirando a ocasional quebra de framerate e merece ser jogada inclusivamente por aqueles que tiveram o prazer de experimentar Abe’s Odyssey há quase dezanove anos.

Il ritorno di una piccola icona qual è Abe è accompagnato da un remake volenteroso e tecnicamente davvero riuscito. I soli problemi sono quelli alla base del progetto: il gioco in versione 2014 è fin troppo simile a quello del 1997, andando a riproporre una rigidità che galvanizzerà solo i vecchi fan di Oddworld o chi cerca un’esperienza di gioco molto rigorosa e dai tratti davvero retrò. Si sarebbe potuto (e forse dovuto) tentare un approccio più morbido e moderno.
