  Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee
- Play as a team - players use Munch and Abe cooperatively to make their way through the trials of Oddworld. Leverage both characters' unique strengths.

- Abe- Abe can climb and jump to reach new areas, and then run to escape from dangerous enemies. When all else fails, chant to take control of the enemy's soul, and use their guns to clear a path to safety.

- Munch - Munch can swim around the new realms of Oddworld. When on the ground, zip along with a wheelchair power up. Need to move some yapping Slogs out of the way? Just use Munch's nifty remote control head port to fire up the crane and drop those Sloggies in their pen.

- Special psychic powers - Munch and Abe's psychic powers can extend their reach and get others to do the dirty work.

- As Abe - Let Abe's chant roar to take possession of a gun-toting Big Bro Slig and clear almost anything out of the way. Abe can use spooce or spiritual power gained by harvesting SpooceShrubs to posses other creatures as well, but why think small?

- As Munch - If Abe can't mesmerize someone into getting the job done, Munch can use his handy remote control head port to hijack nearby machines including cranes, and 50-caliber Anesthesia bots to tackle the really tough obstacles.

- Power-Ups – Every friendly character you can find becomes a fighting ally, Fuzzles, Mudokons…. Need to get somewhere quickly or get over a wall, like right now? Use Oddworld's consumer power-ups like Expresso and Bounce to amp up Munch and Abe's abilities to perform cool moves. For the more direct approach, possess high-caliber weapon toting enemies.

- Oddworld, now in "new and improved 3D!" - it's a whole new Oddworld, with lush rivers, towering mountains and hundreds of trees that bloom or die. Graphics so amazing, only the Xbox can bring them to life.

- Interact with dozens of different oddball races - use GameSpeak® to get Oddworld's Inhabitants from the heavily armed Big Bro Sligs to the cute but ferocious Fuzzles) to carry out tricky tasks or just beat the crap out of enemies.

- "Frustration Free" gaming - Oddworld's new intelligent cinematic camera, auto-targeting system and no-stick navigation system makes playing a breeze! Plus with easy.

- QuikSave® and limitless lives, players have plenty of chances to take on any situation…no matter how Odd!

We’ve been receiving X-Box games ever since the console’s debut last year but until now we’ve had nothing to play them on. That all changed today as one showed up in the mail yesterday morning. So here it is our very first X-Box game review.

Oddworld Munch’s Oddysee is classified as an action adventure game and let me tell you this game looks like a million bucks. The graphics are just stunning. It makes you feel like you are controlling an animated movie. The levels are enormous and no matter how far you look the game is not riddled with “fogged” out objects like seen in many dreamcast and Playstation 2 games. This Xbox is one powerful gaming console. We will have a complete review of the Xbox console and controller within the next few days.

The game features two very different playable characters “Abe” and “Munch”. You must use both characters in order to complete the game. They each have their own adventure and the storyline keeps switching back and forth between the two. I only had about an hour with the game but from that short time of game play I can confidently say that I am hooked on the game. Both this game and the XBOX console are worth going out and purchasing.

Next up is game of the year “Halo”.
