    In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you pick-up where New 'N' Tasty left off. Abe has undergone an unwanted transformation from being a clueless Mudokon cog, literally about to be chewed up by the Glukkons' big business machine, into an unlikely hero, a beacon of hope.

    Abe was someone who went about his life, blind to what was happening around him, and then woke to a deeper uncomfortable reality and had no choice but to make a change. Abe may not have wanted to be a hero, but there was, and remains, some greatness in Abe. A greater purpose. A greater good. All of which got him into enormous amounts of trouble and continues to do so.

    Revolutions start small and build from unexpected places. You and Abe are the beginning. In Oddworld: Soulstorm, you will begin to understand the power of many will be needed to solve problems that the individual alone cannot.

    Based on the concept of Scavenger's Economy, you will loot from trash cans, pickpocket, and search through lockers for items to craft into weapons and tools to use to help save your fellow Mudokons while you try to unlock the dark secrets behind Brew.

    Whether you prefer the classic Abe playstyle of sneaking and problem solving or using scavenge for what you need to create an arsenal that you can hand off to your followers that you have saved along the way, Oddworld: Soulstorm gives you more choices to replay with different approaches.

    Add in light RPG elements, leader boards, trophies for completionists, and a progression system and Soulstorm sets a new standard for next-generation action adventure platformers.

    If you're looking for a game which is able to wow in the cutscenes, make you laugh during moments of ill and see you frantically run for your life in others, all while still being able to deliver a smattering of humour and satisfaction whenever Abe's fellow Mudokons are saved, Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition is the game you must play.

    Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition provides a much more stable experience, with extra content for players to get stuck into. It's great to be back as Abe, and having a smoother game makes up for earlier frustrations felt when the game released back in April.

    The Oddworld has finally graced the Xbox platform with it’s newest entry into the franchise with Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition. This is a reimagining of the classic Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. It improves on the prequel remake, Oddworld: New ‘n Tasty, in every way. Hands down the best 2D Oddworld game and I think fans of the franchise will love it.

    Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition is a fantastic platform game with a lot of originality. This enhanced version of the game has fixed many of the problems with which the game was originally released in April. The overall result is a challenging, fun game full of dark humor that is quite satisfying. If you like platform games, this one should surely be among your interests.

    Oddworld: Soulstorm Enhanced Edition is still a great game with great problems, some really nice ideas and a compelling story but also cumbersome and imprecise controls that make the experience inevitably frustrating.

    I loved this game so much and I'm playing through it again to see a different ending.

I think there's 4 different endings and I can see myself playing through it four times to try and get each one.
    The graphics look fantastic on Series X and the cutscenes are truly amazing. I remember the older Oddworld games and always loved the story in them so I was happy to see this one have the same mix of really horrible situations and funny moments as you learn what's going on.

    Thus, the developers of "Oddworld: Soulstorm" also managed the step to the new consoles really well. The story and the fun gameplay areThus, the developers of "Oddworld: Soulstorm" also managed the step to the new consoles really well. The story and the fun gameplay are convincing again and remind us of the good old days. The new skills and the great graphics also make for a lot of fun while playing. Unfortunately, the new crafting system feels rather gimmicky and doesn't really fit in with the really great rest of the game. Above all, you might want to buy the Enhanced Edition, as you'll simply get more content. If you'd like to experience another interesting adventure with Abe, you should definitely check out "Oddworld: Soulstorm".

    lorne lanning you have made a disatro you had to be faithful at least as new n tasty although this is not as perfect as the original gamelorne lanning you have made a disatro you had to be faithful at least as new n tasty although this is not as perfect as the original game which has better atmosphere controls design, please ask if it is possible to release an uncensored version of abe exoddus without the stupid question of 3 fingers of abe's hand because this is very annoying and ruined the aesthetics of the game Expand
