Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD PS3 Review

Console Obsession
25 May 2015
  • Excerpt: It’s a shame that developer Oddworld Inhabitants had to withdraw themselves from the games industry, but that’s exactly what happened in 2005. With games like Abe’s Odyssey and Stranger’s Wrath, they proved to be one of the most unique and creative developers.

  • Conclusion: Stranger’s Wrath is all about identity. In addition to the themes of its well-rounded story, it feels tailor-made to challenge the critical habit of comparing games that share similar traits just to make critical analysis easier.

Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD Review

28 December 2011
  • Excerpt: In today’s video game industry, it’s not a strange coincidence that some truly great games are overlooked by more popular commercial favorites.  Case in point – Rayman Origins , a charming game in its own right, sold 50,000 units, where other games like Dead Island and Modern Warfare 3 easily...
