Oddworld: Soulstorm

Critics Consensus (Skip It)

Oddworld: Soulstorm is full of charm, but tedious design, a slew of bugs, and an overall lack of polish make it a tough sell.

Game Info

Witness Abe’s horrifying conflict with a terrifying new machination. A fresh narrative – a complete story retake inspired by our original tale. A big visual and cinematic leap aiming to break new ground for Oddworld. Intelligent new mechanics, twisted new devices enabling highly explosive deviousness. A dark parable that tells an epic tale of a volatile society pushed to its limits.

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

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.
