If you haven't played a lot of Oddworld Inhabitant's first game, Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, the transition from the original title to the next game in the line, Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus, may at first appear subtler than it actually is. Yet even though the Exoddus gameplay is essentially more of the same, it's more of a good thing, and the modifications are excellent.

We've gone through the whole "Exoddus is not a sequel but rather an offshoot of the first game" rigmarole about 50 times by now. So, just know that Abe, the absinthe-skinned main character known as a Mudokon in the first game, is back in this title and is still trying to foil the plans of The Man, or the Glukkons for the sake of Oddworld Inhabitant's well-spun fiction.

The storyline is layers deep, but perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the Oddworld games is the gamespeak function. While some people may have a tough time conceptualizing how to get through an entire game without a weapon, those who've played Oddysee know that you bank on your ability to communicate, rather than terminate. And the old "shoot first; ask questions later" doesn't get you anywhere in Exoddus either. In addition to the reappearance of the somewhat simple roster of commands you had in the first gam - Hello, Follow Me, Work, etc. - your duty is now more complicated, as the Mudokons (that's your race) get angry, crazy, blitzed on Soulstorm Brew (a wicked but addictive concoction of Mudokon tears and bones), and so forth, and you've got to talk them down frequently and systematically with the use of a whole handful of new commands. Naturally, as a friendly fart can't always solve more advanced communications conundrums, the developers have now given you the ability to apologize, slap unruly Mudokons into submission, and lead the blind.
