Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee for PS1
I'll get a full review done soon, but I just wanted to quickly post about Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee - the first in the Oddworld quintology. In style it seems a throwback to the mid-80s style flip-screen platformer (never one of my favourite genres, though I did enjoy the antics of Monty Mole!); however this is absolutely brilliant. Loads of secrets to discover, a rich gameplay experience, and some graphical effects that don't look too shabby even today.
I'm having great fun with this game, it's maddening at times but only in that way that the best games are - you hate the game, you vow that it's the most annoying thing on the planet... but of course you keep playing, because it just happens to be impossible to stop playing.
That Abe though... he's one ugly critter (but loveable just the same!).
