Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath HD PS3 Review
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.
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...
Pros: Spectacular “live” ammo, HD visuals look great, Good story, great twist
Cons: Camera can be wonky, Some brutal bosses, Linear, one-way path
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...
Summary: I never managed to play any of the Oddworld titles when they first came out, so I approached Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD with almost no expectations in mind. All I knew about the titles was that they were a rather well-received bunch of games with decidedly weird-looking protagonists.
Excerpt: The Oddworld games have always had an audience, even if it is a small one. The quirky characters and genuine humor have entertained fans since the original game debuted on the original PlayStation.
Pros: + Quirky characters, + Story is excellent, + Live ammo is unique, + Great plot twist
Cons: Bounty missions become repetitive, Controls take getting used to
Excerpt: Format: PSN Unleashed: December 21st (EU), December 27th (NA) Publisher: Oddworld Inhabitants Developer: Oddworld Inhabitants/Just Add Water Players: 1 Site: http://www.oddworld.com/?page_id=778 Is it a first person shooter? Perhaps a third person platformer?
Summary: OddWorld Stranger's Wrath non è l'opera migliore degli Inhabitants, e forse sarebbe stato meglio seguire fedelmente la cronologia delle pubblicazioni e rispolverare prima Munch's Oddysee, in cui ancora lo sperimentalismo ludico e la verve stilistica si facevano sentire più prepotentemente.
Excerpt: Con una jugabilidad rompedora dentro de la serie Oddworld, y un apartado técnico a la altura de lo esperado, el último gran título de esta mítica saga se remasteriza en HD con la intención de lograr en PlayStation Network el éxito que no consiguió en la Xbox original.
Conclusion: Auf Oddworld - Stranger's Wrath HD habe ich mich ganz besonders gefreut, denn wo Oddworld draufsteht, ist auch Oddworld drin. Charme, Witz, tolle Spielbarkeit, abgedrehte Charaktere, abwechslungsreiche Welten, fordernde und eher taktisch ausgelegte Kämpfe, kreative Munitionsarten - all das und eine...
