Undoubtedly the DOOM of platform games, the only thing that's different between this underrated gem and that highly regarded classic is the Abuse's lack of first-person perspective. Despite a cliche plot (kill-all-aliens), everything else is spectacular: smooth animations, cool weapons and enemies, some thoughtful puzzles beyond flip-the-switch types, and the superbly *dark* atmosphere. It even includes a full-featured level editor/creator that allows you to set even custom AI of the monsters and how objects behave. A must-have!
