What do these ratings mean?

The Good: Superb audio, graphics, great game play that is one of it's kind, great storyline, quick saves are a life saver

The Bad: Extreme difficulty, not the most user friendly game

While I've heard of the Oddworld games in the past I never really bothered playing one until now. I picked up Exodus due to it's quick save feature (PC gamers will know what I mean). While this helps tremendously it doesn't ease some of the game's pain. Some segments of this game are just impossible to pass or to figure out. I don't know if the developers play tested the WHOLE game but if they did they were cheating. The story is pretty good here: You play as Abe who has to save his race from being slaves from the Mudokans. This time they are turning his people into a strange drink...yeah weird plot I know but it works. The graphics and audio in this game are superb and DOESN'T look like a PS1 game one bit...and that's a good thing. The game sports beautiful pre-rendered backgrounds and the characters are very well designed.

The gameplay is what's different than most platformers...you can't jump on people or shoot people. This isn't Mario or Metroid here this is Abe. You have to defeat enemies by either possessing them with your mind or walking them off ledges, walking them into traps, or just plain old avoid them. You can hide in shadows as well. You have to save your pals by having them help you turn valves etc. There are different effects your pals can have such as being slap happy which, as the name says, you need to slap them so you can sneak by sleeping enemies. The game play is always mixed up with disarming bombs, solving puzzles etc. If you can look past the game's extreme difficulty then go for it.
