Oddworld Titles Arrive On PSN Today
It was one of the very first times I ever looked at a console game and said, "woah, this looks almost as good as a PC game!"
Not only did it look good, but it also proved to be one of the most original and memorable gaming experiences of the PlayStation era. Now, if you missed out on the original and a subsequent installment, you will have the option of downloading and playing them on either the PS3 or PSP. According to GameSpot, both Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exodus should be up on the PlayStation Store and ready to purchase today. These are two singular titles but you'll have to pay a bit more than you're used to paying for PlayStation classics; the standard price for these digital re-releases is usually $5.99, but both Oddworld games will cost $9.99. As far as we're concerned, though, it's well worth the price of admission, especially if you've never played them. You just don't see much in the way of strict adventure games anymore, and Oddworld always had a special flair that's almost undefinable. Let's just say the title of the game is fitting.
Just keep those PS1 classics coming; the more the better. Even if you never had the biggest library way back when, you can certainly build it up now.
