Oddworld - Soulstorm -Part 1 - The Raid On Monsiac

Howdy Gamers

Today I picked up Oddworld -Soulstorm which is a reimagining of the 1998 Game Abe's Exoddus for the original playstation.

The story in Soulstorm is a continuation of the story in 2014's Oddworld New and Tasty which I have yet to play.I figured since this is the newest one and a reimagining of one of my favorite PS1 games I should start with this title.

This video covers the first stage of the game.The Raid On Monsiac.

So lets jump right in...

Our story begins with a train hurtling through a desert area as some Slig gunners pursue it...

After that lengthy (11 mins+!) awesome opening cinematic we finally find ourselves in control of Abe.Our goal here is to escape the burning cave...

Along the way we find story stones that explain different mechanics of the game.

The game is a side scrolling platformer so we are running,jumping avoiding falling objects and machine gun fire from the sliggs.

Some of the burning areas need to be extinguished with water bottles..

And some walls need to be set on fire to clear the way and then extinguished so we can pass
