So are we talking current-gen? People still keep throwing this next-gen title on the current systems.

Only ever played the first one but really enjoyed it. The graphics really stood out at the time, not to mention the unique gameplay.

Yeah the first game was great, I didn't care for the others though. It kind of went too over the top after that.

I don't quite get the Maxis / Oddworld Inhabitants relation. I thought one of the reasons Lanning decided to switch focus away from video game development was because of EA's poor marketing of Stranger's Wrath (among other reasons)? Seems Odd that they would team up with an EA again, unless I'm looking at it completely wrong.
Whatever the case, I've been hoping for a new Oddworld for a long time. Maybe in time they could even resurrect The Brutal Ballad Of Fangus Klot and Hand of Odd!

By all accounts, the EA of today is a different beast. It's possible he was talked around by newer management folks.
