Quotes

Abe: This is RuptureFarms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld. I used to work here. Well, I was really a slave, like all the others. That's me. My name is Abe.

Very fun game
21 January 2000 | by (PA, USA) – See all my reviews

I played this game over a friend's house, just a little skeptical. I mean, an odd-looking blue guy who has to fart and chant in order to free his friends? And the characters look like a mixture between Satan and the Tele-Tubbies. But I gave it a chance and I enjoyed it very much. The gameplay and graphics are very good. The storyline and cutscenes are funny and enjoyable. This game mixes action and puzzles, which proves to be a great combination. Oddworld: Abe's Oddyssey is a few years old now, so pretty cheap so I recommend just going out and buying it. You won't regret it.

(Note - I enjoyed the sequel, Oddworld: Abe's Exxodus a bit more because of additional commands, special features and abilities.)
