Personally I felt that, more than dark and comedic, MO was ambient
in a way that fit the Oddworld universe, not perfectly, but close to it nonetheless. As a kid, it left me truly aching to see beyond the confines of the world shown in the game, and even now I can't help but feel the same way replaying it.
