Summary: Well, I finally finished it. It starts well, the graphics and animation are great, it works far better than Halo2 or any other Xbox game. It's graphics have been cleverly thought out to get the best from the xbox without overdoing the effects. Halo2 and Butcher Bay have bump-mapped everything to death, Wrath avoids this, masking it's deficits cleverly. Initially the new ideas for a FPS/3rd Person stealth game seem very clever..
Summary: If you're an oddworld fan then this latest installment can only disappoint. Granted, the rich graphics are still superb, but the game play is a simple shoot 'em up with none of the story, characters, puzzle solving or intrigue that made the predecessors so amazing. I was really looking forward to some addictive game playing, but alas this is just a better looking halo 2 - which is fine but that's not what oddworld was ever about.
