  1. Empathy is the game's strongest suit, with tension coming a close second... As a whole the game's a classy, polished package.

    One of the most loved games of my past is Oddworld.
    heavily puzzle based for a platform game yet they did it well!
    giving the option to possess and control your enemies is what made this game shine the most in my eyes. With the strange yet wonderful creatures of Oddworld, this bizzar world really stands out from other platform games. At times you will need to think fast on your feet or meet your demise while others take timing and patience.
    you have a choice to either save your brethren or leave them stranded or even dead.
    Although a direct sequel to the first, the second does not disappoint. new features adds a greater experience from the first. wonderful game and story over all.

    Just about the only 2D platformer on the Playstation worth owning (apart from the original). This is comparable to classic 16 Bit platform Just about the only 2D platformer on the Playstation worth owning (apart from the original). This is comparable to classic 16 Bit platform adventures such as Flashback and Another World yet Abe's Exoddus has it's own unique personality; Abes world and characters are like no other - cute yet dark and eerie at the same time. The gameplay is also on the weird side and involves possessing and taking controll of other characters to acieve your goals! You can't fail to be charmed by Abe! Full Review »

Graphics are nice, specially in the intros... spectacular (obviously for 1998). Gameplay is very addictive, and it's easy to learn the controls of the games, but sometimes the game gets very hard, but fortunately, we got Quicksaves. Everybody knows that, although quicksaves let you save the game in every moment, the game doesn't get bored because of the difficulty of the game. Rescuing mudokons (or killing them xD), is an original idea, and Oddworld knew how to create a great and original world. It's really sad that they actually don't make games (seriously, the last game they made was in 2005 I think). Sorry the bad english. Full Review »
