  1. Stranger's Wrath simply isn't a better game for having first-person mode, and many of us would have maybe preferred the choice.
  2. If you're gonna have odd features, make them essential... A good game, but a slightly wasted opportunity.

    Though the tired ramblings of the characters and classic game plot aren't the most original, it does faithfully honor its western theme.

    A great game with that special oddworld feel to it. It tries to combine quite a bit of genres: 3D platformer, Stealth and FPS. And actually A great game with that special oddworld feel to it.

YEAH... but original game was... better? I don't know why, but I think that new version is different than old. I'm weird, i understand. This game's my childhood, like Ghost Master or... uhhhm... Whatever. I don't like Munch Oddysee or Abe's Exoddus. Only Stranger's Wrath. :) Full Review »

    Marking a change from the previous puzzle based instalments in the Oddworld series Strangers Wrath is best described as First Person Shooter.Marking a change from the previous puzzle based instalments in the Oddworld series Strangers Wrath is best described as First Person Shooter. Fortunately it has more than enough personality, from the interesting lead character to the amusing selection of live ammo, to set it apart from the crowd. Add to this a solid control scheme and, despite the odd minor fault, you are looking at 15-20 hours of great entertainment. Full Review »
