Nostalgia is 20/20. Abes oddysee still has a great visual aesthetic that marks its world as it's own, and still oozes charm amidst it's meat factory dread. The puzzle platforming rescuing the slaved mudokons has aged terribly without the ability to quicksave, and you will find yourself fighting against some bad design choices and trial and death gameplay which is more punishing than rewarding. As relic of the of the past, it's still worth playing to the end, but you would be suprised how much gameplay has improved over the years, so newcomers might be better persuaded into getting the modern remake.
I played this as a kid back when it first released, and playing it now, I found a lot more context in oddworld. There's an enviromentalist message amidst it's grim take on overconsumption and capitalism.
Feels like an adventure
Great style, a very immersive world
No quicksave, puzzles can frustrate
The platforming has dated, unresponsive.
requires dedication to save the only obvious 50 mudokons. 50 are in very well hidden locations, and 50 is the cap for the good ending. Its gonna suck finishing the game witht he bad one is all Im saying.
