Why Bring it to the PlayStation 4?
The Playstation 4 is amped enough to handle some of the fastest and most complex action, adventure, driving and shooting game – but that is only a part of the gaming world. At its core is the role playing adventure games. Some of them have over the top 3D graphics and strive to convince you that you are in another world; others like Odd World are focused on making sure you can build an image of the world in your mind so you can solve the challenges and adventures you set out on.
What’s it Like?
There isn’t much that hasn’t been seen before with Oddworld – New and Tasty in regards to its graphics and game play. What is new is the intricacy of it’s under game design and the complexity of its challenges. It can be a fun and easy game to play that you can jump in and out of for some fights and odd adventures, or you can set out with a team to try and explore and complete dangerous challenges. That is the best thing about Oddworld – its multi levels of play. This is also what makes it so successful with such a wide age range.

If you really want to get the most out of PS4 then you need to rethink the styles of games that you play. Everyone has their preferences for the types of games they like to play, but you would be surprised at how your preferences is influenced by the strength of the system you have been playing on.

With the power and upgrades available on the Playstation 4, even your most familiar game is going to look and plays like something entirely new. It is worth it to do some trial plays of other games to see how different they can be.
