Abe's Exoddus is a great game overall with its fun and exciting gameplay, awesome graphics, and funny sounds. Sure to please many gamers, this title is one worth looking at because of the sheer amount of quality that was put into its production. Overall, I would say that everyone should try this game at least once.
Otherwise, the waiting game just doesn't parallel the egocentric fun of keeping this title to yourself. In all, Abe's Exoddus is a great example of how a game can stay true to its conceptual pursuit while still improving upon the original, all while keeping its soul intact. If you loved the first one, you'll like this game more. If you didn't play the first one, you can start here. If you hated the first one, it's likely because of the lack of save points, so you should definitely consider giving this series another try.
Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus jest wspaniałą grą. Bardzo podobną pod względem graficznym, silnika gry, mechaniki, udźwiękowienia do poprzedniczki, a jednak od niej znacznie lepszą, bardziej wciągającą, dopracowaną i dłuższą. Wprowadzono dużo udoskonaleń jak na przykład stany emocjonalne czy możliwości większej kontroli wrogów, jednak największą zmianą jest wprowadzenie opcji quick save, która niejednokrotnie uratuje niebieskie dupsko Abe przed spadnięciem w przepaść, pocięciem na kawałki, zastrzeleniem czy pożarciem.

I loved the first Abe adventure and was eagerly anticipating the release of this new title. Well, I wasn't disappointed...in fact I actually liked this one better than the first game. I found the overall balance of the game to be much improved from its predecessor and the gameplay controls tweaked just right. I also liked the save anywhere at anytime feature...cool... The game looks pretty much the same as last years effort with slightly improved graphical effects and the same good old over the top sound effects! Looks like Oddworld may end up being a yearly staple of games to watch for...I sure hope so!

Abe's Exoddus heeft alles wat Oddysee zo de moeite waard maakte en meer. Hoewel de herkenning af en toe wel erg groot is, zijn er genoeg extra's om Abe en z'n eigenwijze mede-Mudokons interessant te houden. Daarbij zijn de werelden prachtig, de verhaallijn goed en krijg je de kans om de big bad Glukkon door z'n eigen Sligs te laten afmaken. Heh, heh, heh.
Game Revolution
Exoddus is an excellent game, but it suffers slightly from one pitfall: there is not very much that is new here. The graphics are very similar, the game engine is unchanged, the gameplay mechanics are largely the same, and most of the sound is taken directly from Oddessy. The improvements in Exoddus make it a much more streamlined, polished gaming experience, but not quite a full sequel in any terms other than plot line. That aside, Exoddus is a better game overall than Oddessy was, and that makes it very good indeed.
Mega Fun
Für die Hersteller war Abe ‘s Exoddus sicherlich nicht nur ein Bonusspiel, sondern auch die willkommene Gelegenheit, Features, die aus Zeit- oder Platzgründen nicht mehr in Abe ‘s Oddysee reinpaßten, zu verwenden. Der zweite Auftritt von Abe wirkt nämlich an vielen Stellen noch viel ausgereifter. Die Idee mit dem steuerbaren Furz ist beispielsweise herrlich skurril und bietet zudem sehr viele spielerische Anwendungsmöglichkeiten. Auch das erweiterte Speak System und der ein oder andere Charakter sorgen für noch mehr Kurzweil. Unter dem Strich ist jedoch im Prinzip alles beim alten geblieben, vor allem in technischer Hinsicht. Das soll aber angesichts der ehrlichen Titulierung als Bonusspiel nichts Negatives bedeuten. Auch Abe ‘s Exoddus wurde wie kaum ein anderes Videospiel perfekt durchgestylt und bietet erneut die motivierende Mischung aus intelligentem Leveldesign und dem berühmt berüchtigten Trial&Error-Spielprinzip.
This is a rare piece of PSOne magic, and you should check it out as soon as possible. Rent, then buy.
Si vous connaissez déjà Abe, je n'ai pas besoin de vous convaincre d'acheter ce deuxième épisode. Pour les autres, si vous ne connaissez pas ce héros, vous passez à côté de quelque chose !
משחק המשך מוצלח לאודוורלד המקורי, עם כמה תוספות מעניינות, אך לא הרבה מעבר לכך. אם אהבתם את הקודם, תאהבו גם את זה.
In the end, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus is not just a cult game, it's bigger and better than that. But many people will be turned off with the die-until-you-don't game design and its unforgiving approach. Hopefully, the goofy ways of the hilarious Mudokons and their story will compel you to play on until the very end. But if you're not immediately swept away with Abe's Exoddus, then just don't buy this game. While it's not for everyone, those who favor it, will love it to death.
The Video Game Critic
Exodus is a well-constructed adventure, but the benefit of the new features is largely offset by the games' more elaborate and demanding puzzles. Exoddus will thrill those who mastered the first game, but for newcomers this is a heck of a lot to chew.
