A great sequel to a great game.
Like Abe's Oddysee, Abe's Exoddus has an action/puzzle style and keeps many elements from the last game including GameSpeak, possession and throwing. However, the GameSpeak feature is greatly improved, allowing you to call several Mudokons a a time rather than the original one.
The NPCs also have emotional/physical states which affect their responses and actions towards the player. Mudokons can come in a variety of different emotion ranges including angry, depressed or wired. You have the option to tell the NPCs to stop what they are doing, tell them you're sorry or to slap them. Mudokons can also now be blind and only respond to commands coming from a certain direction.
Once again, the storyline is brilliant and keeps to the same subtle anti-corporatism theme. Abe must again save a number of Mudokons from slavery and prevent the Glukkons from manufacturing their tainted products. The voice acting is also good and the dialogue is funny. Characters such as Abe and Big Face return and new characters such as the Three Weirdos and Alf make their first appearance.
There is also a great improvement to the save system being that you no longer need to reach checkpoints to save your game. There is a save and quicksave feature which you can load back into at any time to continue progress or rectify mistakes.
I can see no downsides to this game and I would strongly recommend it to fans or strangers of the Oddworld franchise and fans of 2D games.
