Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD review

GamesRadar
24 June 2012
  • Excerpt: A large chicken hawk is taunting us while his massive shotgun is dealing brutal damage with every hit. As we cower behind a wall, there’s a decision to be made. Should we lay traps with furry, fuzzy spheres that happen to have teeth like piranha, then follow those up with lethal blasts of hard-shelled slugs?
  • Pros: Spectacular “live” ammo, HD visuals look great, Good story, great twist
  • Cons: Camera can be wonky, Some brutal bosses, Linear, one-way path

Oddworld Stranger's Wrath HD (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
26 February 2012
  • Excerpt: When you think of games on the old Xbox, you likely think about Halo , Fable , and Panzer Dragoon Orta . (OK, maybe not that last one.) But there was also an eccentric FPS title on the big box, Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath , that shook up the genre while adding in the kind of hilarity that only Oddworld games can achieve. Now it has undergone the HD treatment and hit the PlayStation Store, looking for new outlaws to take up the crossbow.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

Strategy Informer
6 January 2012
  • Conclusion: Some flaws still exist including some poor camera control problems reminiscent of the era when this was originally created, but in general this is a really impressive HD remake of an underrated, under played classic that deserves the attention – and something that other HD remakes could definitely stand to learn a thing or two from.

  • Excerpt: series took after the first couple of installments on the PlayStation. What debuted as a beautifully drawn, highly imaginative puzzle-based adventure became a standard, ho-hum action platformer.

Oddworld Stranger’s Wrath HD Review

GameZone
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 cleared over a million.  That’s just a recent example.  Some true gems have been buried because of their lack of an ad campaign or publisher hype.

  • Excerpt: 's arrival on the PlayStation Network is hardly an anti-climax. The 2005 Xbox exclusive won over the critics with its innovative blend of 3D platforming and first-person shooter action, making it a prime candidate for the high definition treatment.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD: review

Critical Gamer
20 December 2011
  • Excerpt: Is it a first person shooter? Perhaps a third person platformer? Surely it must be an action RPG of sorts? We’ve had five years to think about it, and the answer is still “yes” to all. This high-definition remake of Stranger’s Wrath stands proudly on an outlandish hill of its own and continues to live up to the Oddworld name by being, quite fittingly, odd.
