Great concept, pretty good playing
10 August 2001 | by (Hanover Park, IL) – See all my reviews

This was almost a 10/10 game. The only problem being far too much to do between save points.

I loved this game, but then I loved Abe's Exoddus more - because of QUICKSAVE - didn't have to repeat so much stuff when I goofed...

But still I'm replaying Abe's Oddysee after playing it and Exoddus twice each, and I still really like it.

Hey, can anyone give me a clue of other games that so nicely combine action and puzzles in this way?
