Quotes

Abe: This is RuptureFarms. 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. I was employee of the year. Now I'm dead meat. I crossed the meanest boss in the world: Mullock the Glukkon. My whole life changed in just one day. I was working late one night, at RuptureFarms. We used to make Meech Munchies, until the Meeches were through. We still made Paramite Pies and we made some good Scrab Cakes, too. I...

Very fun game
21 January 2000 | by XophianicSee 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.)
