Ultimately, Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD is an easy recommendation whether or not you’ve played it before – but especially if you haven’t. Between its unique weapons, out-there world, and shocking late-game plot twist, there’s a lot to really like even as it occasionally reminds you it’s a 7-year-old game. They don’t make ‘em like this much anymore.
Oddworld: Stranger&#A;rray;s Wrath is one of the more unique games to come out of the last generation. It may drag a bit at times and doesn&#A;rray;t do shooting or platforming amazingly well, but it blends the genres together into an almost always fun romp. Annoyances aside, Stranger&#A;rray;s Wrath stands the test of time as a good title and a testament to the love put into creating the Oddworld universe.
Not much else has been added to the experience, save for full trophy support on PS3. This is Stranger's Wrath. If you've played it before, you'll recognize it and appreciate the facelift. If you haven't, here's your chance to step back in time without the rose-colored glasses you might have grown accustomed to.
Carrying a generous £9.99 price-point, we have confidence that Stranger's Wrath will finally hit the wider market that it deserves. Despite its length, size and scope, the game finally feels at home next to other PlayStation Store curiosities such as Limbo, flower and Okabu. You owe it to yourself to give the game a chance.
It's particularly poignant given the history. On its initial release, this wonderful piece of work was all but ditched at retail by a publisher that didn't seem to understand what it was dealing with. Now Stranger's Wrath has finally received the lavish treatment it deserves, and the gaming world has a chance to reclaim one of its brightest treasures.
Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD beautifies the already wonderful world of the original game and brings the ridiculous and fun experience to a new console and a new generation of gamers. Stranger's Wrath was a diamond in the rough on the original Xbox and it retains that role on the PlayStation 3. For once, it's good to be a Stranger.
Il gioco vanta una caratterizzazione forte, che si esplica nel suo alternare in modo "trasparente" dinamiche action adventure in terza persona e FPS; nonché nella peculiare gestione delle munizioni, croce e delizia di un sistema di combattimento che predilige la fine strategia piuttosto che le sortite ad armi spianate.
