Assembled over a mere period of 9 months, Abe's Exoddus takes the core principles which made its predecessor so special and pushes them even further, expanding upon the straightforward and yet compelling gamespeak, possession, and platforming mechanics to produce a sequel worthy of a place among the best of its genre! The environmental art and FMV cinematics are a triumph in worldbuilding and enrich Oddworld with a sense of scale that makes Abe's journey feel truly epic, meanwhile the addition of a much-needed quicksave option makes the challenge of this title far more accessible to new players.
A magical adventure in every sense, Abe's Exoddus stands oversized head and boney green shoulders above any competing title. Yes, it's a lot like "Oddysee," but it's ingeniously more complicated and so long they had to put it on two discs!
You can effectively race through the levels without being forced to solve all of the game's puzzles, which strikes me as something of a waste, and a concession to those less impatient souls that want to see all they can from a game in the shortest space of times.
This is quite a masterpiece! Beautiful visuals, sound, level design and fun puzzles!
I LOOOOVEEEEE how this game is a very unique platformer!
If you are a person who likes strategy and adventure games, then this game is definitely for you (my recommendation)!
Lorne Lanning is a god, and he rules his Oddworld Inhabitants. In the 90s Oddworld Interactive was an ambitious collective of visionaries in an era where big name developers dominated the list of best games ever made. Suddenly we were whisked away to a new fantasy world where tension, strife, atmosphere, industry, and ecology were all well-represented and intricately woven. Never before in my gaming history had I been so enchanted by a world that was new to the table. Oddworld is dark comedy in video games at its finest. Sometimes you need to take a break from saving mudokons and cackle maniacally as you blindly lead a group of them into a meat grinder.
I LOVE this game. I want to thank Sherry McKenna e Lorne Lanning for creating this amazing World. I love every single aspect of it: the sadism, the adventure, the irony, the sound/music, the backgrounds, the fact that the player character can also possess other creatures, the fact that the player can kill **** of the best games ever. 10/10
A larger, more open playing area and more forgiving difficulty level than the - occasionally infuriating - original while maintaining its interesting puzzles, quirky well animated graphics and amusingly twisted sense of humour make for a challenging and fun platform based puzzler.
SummaryAbe's peaceful retirement was shattered when visited by a vision from the Mudokon Spirit Guides. Abe™ learned the Magog Cartel was mining Necrum, the sacred Mudokon city of the dead, to collect bones to make super-addictive SoulStorm Brew.
After freeing the Mudokon spirits imprisoned in the Mudanchee and Mudomo Vaults, Abe gained ...
