Munch's Oddysee is still the worst Oddworld game and his new remastered version for Nintendo Switch doesn't change that. The result of this last port is a game that is truly mediocre.

As previous iterations, Munch's Oddysee lacks the charm from the original 2D games. When it jumped to the 3D real, new doors were open, as new problems, focused in the camera and controls, that are present here. It's a more typical platformer, with easier puzzles. But it still is an endearing game that fans of the series will enjoy.

Although it was good in 2001, Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee is let down on Nintendo Switch by awkward camera angles, frustrating controls, and bland environments.

As an easy-to-pickup game, Oddworld: Munch’s Oddysee is an enjoyable choice for those who aren’t looking for too much of a challenge but would like to utilize their brain and platforming skills for something fun and simple.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee on the Nintendo Switch brings back this chapter in the Oddworld series and while the gameplay mechanics are solid and the Oddworld universe remains attractive, it's clear that there was not enough work in this conversion to make it appealing enough beyond fans of the original game, especially when it comes to its visual environment and to its frustrating controls.

Third installment of the series, Munch's Oddysee is a flawed yet enjoyable game for its first entry in 3D. However, this port of the 2011's remaster still has some issues, such as remaining bugs and inadequate button assignments.

It really sucks having to rate Munch's Oddysee so low – this version has obviously been made with care, but as the old saying goes you just can't polish a... well... you know.

Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee is a classic game that might be stuck in 2001 visually, but still is fun to play thanks to the story and characters.

Munch's Oddysee is the second chapter of the Oddworld saga on Nintendo Switch. However, it cannot offer an experience absent of disappointment and imperfections.
