Product Description

ONCE YOU WERE A SLAVE LABORER IN A HORRID MEAT PROCESSING PLANT NOW YOUR NEXT ON THE MENU.....

Amazon.com

You want weird? Look no further than Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Mild-mannered factory worker Abe has discovered that his employers at Rupture Farms are planning to use his fellow Mudokons as the main ingredient in their latest product, Mudokon Pops. Like any decent Mudokon, Abe aims to rescue his peers. He also is determined to seek justice in his battle to bring down the corrupt Rupture Farms. You help Abe carry out his heroic duties by possessing enemies, participating in action sequences worthy of an Indiana Jones flick, and talking to fellow Mudokons using the game's impressive "gamespeak" feature, which allows multiple characters to communicate with each other using your control pad.

The graphics in Abe's Oddyssee convey a unique personality, which is often lacking in platform action games. Still, a few pretty game environments will not distract you from the devious puzzles scattered throughout the game. Fortunately, you never run out of lives in Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. Instead, Abe rematerializes immediately after you "die" and the game continues from the last checkpoint you reached. This approach encourages exploration, which you'll want to do anyway since this is one of the most beautiful 2-D games we've seen. --T. Byrl Baker

Pros:

  • Gorgeous graphics and cut-scenes
  • Challenging puzzles
  • Entertaining story
Cons:
  • Many puzzles require perfect timing, which can be difficult to master

Stop reading. Buy the game. This is one of the best games I have played for the PSX. The graphics are outstanding, the echoey sound effects give great ambiance, and it's really tough! The game is very well-designed in that a lot of the tougher puzzles are hidden, so it's as difficult as you want to make it. It's a bit gory, but the violence is more cartoony than anything else. The FMV movies are very, very good and smooth as well. A great game for kids and adults!
The only downside is that if you die, you often have to complete a good portion of the level again. This is not a terribly bad thing, it's just a bit annoying in some of the tougher parts.
Really, it's a steal. You'll have loads of fun.

I remember hearing about the Oddworld series when it first came out, and from what I heard a lot of people seemed to like it. But I didn't really think about it too much, however a couple days ago I got this game as a gift. I have to say, this is definitely one of the most innovative games out there. To me it's like a cross between Metal Gear Solid (because of the sneaking around) and Earthworm Jim (because of the weirdness). The story is amusing yet original, and it's interesting how things turn out for Abe (the main character) throughout the game. I won't get into any details about the story, don't want to spoil anything. The control is superb, as well is the music and the overall sound. The gameplay and graphics however, are the true highlights of this game. In the game, Abe is able to use weapons, sort of. However he doesn't have one throughout the game, the only way he can get them is through grenade machines (which only pump out one grenade at a time) or if he possesses a mind of a Slig, which are the only enemies that have guns. You are able to possess their minds through a kind of ritual chanting, you can control them however you want. You are also able to talk to fellow Mudokans (a tribe that Abe is from) that you have to save, and that's the whole point of the game is to save them but you have to be very sneaky to do it. Trust me it's not as easy as it sounds. What's cool is Abe doesn't just die, he regenerates. The problem is sometimes he regenerates at places you had the most trouble with, and you have to go all through it again. The graphics are some of the best I have seen on the Playstation console, the FMV's are flawless, no grainy pictures whatsoever. When you are controlling Abe, the environment is 2-D, but even then the graphics are still awesome and have a slight 3-D element.Read more ›

A lot of the reviews here criticize this game for being difficult. I have this to say to that: DUH! Games are supposed to be difficult if they are going to be fun, right? If it were too easy, it might as well be a movie, right? (Though I hear that they are working on that :D)

Abe's Oddysee, as well as its sequels, have a few things in common that make them truly amazing:

1. Beautiful environments. I mean absolutely stunning. The artists working on this game capture an alien landscape with true finesse. There are a few times I just stop and gaze into the distance.

2. Great storyline, with characters to match. It's silly, but not so silly that it masks the anti-industrialist message. The game is something of a metaphor opposing clear-cutting and mass-species-extinction.

3. Refreshing style of play. It breaks from standard games by not having a life bar (one shot death in most cases), but that's balanced by having unlimited lives. Sure the puzzles are hard. Very hard. If you're up to the challenge, the rewards are soooo worth it.

Happy gaming, folks! This is a gem that shouldn't be missed.

it's worth the money, i wished that they would bring this game back to sales. i've been a fan of this game for a long time. if you want to play it on your PS2 then the best way to play it is to buy a Hyperkin PS1 Memory Card so you can save your levels. the is tricky, after put the game in & play it, when time to save then you put the card in & when asked to format hit yes.
worth buying

with the fantastic animation, excellent vioce talents, goriness, morbid story and difficult-to-the-point-of-insanity puzzles, oddworld is the embodyment of excellence. it is seriously funny. you'll laugh when the main character, abe, kicks the bucket, when you accedently lure your friends to a grusome death, and when your enimies flee in terror after you morph into a hideos creature. abe is actualy just a skinny guy whith no weapons at all. your task is to run, sneak, and save all 100 of your race from a ghastly fate. All without getting blown away guys with machine guns. Buy it!

This is the first playstation game I have played. I found it quite a challange, definitely not for those without lots of patience. It always has me coming back for more. Easily have 60+ hours into completing this game. The characters are a blast and the sound, 3-d graphics are top notch.

What can I say? I absolutely love this game, and you will too. The humor can be sophomoric and grotesque, but that's really one of the appeals. The entire game revolves around solving puzzle after puzzle to rescue your coworkers from a factory where you and your kind are processed into food items. There's never a dull moment as you maneuver the many levels and challenges that always keep you guessing and on your toes. And did I mention how much fun it is? Goofy characters, a smart interaction with those you are trying to rescue, including learning how to properly speak to them, and fantastic landscapes are visual and mental candy.
