    This game is over rated! Not that the core gameplay isn´t fun, because it is actually lots of fun.
    But while Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD being a port from the 2005 Xbox release by the same name, well minus the "HD" Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD really shows sign of it´s old age. You will see lots of poor texturing, boring and uninspiring level design and recycled use of enemies.

    Even though this game is fun to play it really shows it´s old age through out!

    I fully regret purchasing this game. Controls are very annoying and the gameplay is mediocre. The graphics are good, though. Do yourself a favor and get Guacamelee! instead.

    The oddworld series is known to many people and has come to be known as a classic series. Stranger's Wrath is no different. The Story is interesting but slow and boring but the gameplay is fun. The HD needs to be greatly improved. The graphics are ok but still looks like a PS1 game. This classic game is a fun time killer but if you like the Oddworld series then this a must have.

    More than seven years on and Stranger’s Wrath is still fresh. Apart from some annoying pop-up tutorial boxes on PS Vita and some niggling issues when retrieving ammo, it’s still unabashedly brilliant. A must buy for sure. [March 2013, p80]

    Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD is a game that feels the weight of years. Far from being unplayable or not attractive, you can not cross over the imperfections of the control system, on a plot that is not too daring and partly on a too-flat concept level design.

    Despite feeling slightly dated, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath still manages to impress on the Vita's small screen.
