Oddworld’s newest revival looks incredible, but its classic stealth-platforming feels old-school in all the wrong ways.

April 14, 2021 |

There are some cobwebs to shake out of Oddworld: Soulstorm, and some that will remain even after a hot shower, but you’d be hard-pressed to name very many games that are doing what this series is doing in 2021. I’m glad that Oddworld Inhabitants is still around, doing their weird and interesting thing.

A highly enjoyable platform puzzler, with some cleverly complex set pieces and great presentation – but it lacks that final layer of polish that could have made it something really special.
