    Stranger will suck you in, much like his bounty collection device, from the opening tutorial and you won't be able to put it down until the final boss fight and surprise ending.

    There's no doubt about it, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD is punching well above its £9.99 price bracket. The production values coupled with over ten hours of quality gameplay mean the game would easily be worth £40 if stuck on the shelf of your local retailer.

    Brilliant. [Feb 2012, p.83]
  4. It's an enjoyable and surreal experience. Smart dialogue and pointed cultural comment make this no different from its Oddworld predecessors, and a very welcome addition to PSN.

    It's great to see Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath in high definition, since it's a game that deserves to be played. The dual gameplay works fine, as you can switch from third to first person perspective by just pressing the right analog stick. The way you get ammo is different from everything else, but will put you in both pleasant and unpleasant situations.

    An impressive revamp of a lost classic. [Feb 2012, p.86]

    Despite showing its age, Stranger's Wrath HD is still a wholly original, refreshing title when compared to many modern offerings.

    I haven't gotten around to finishing "Strangers Wrath" yet, but it is defiantly one of my favourite FPSes. It was different from the otherI haven't gotten around to finishing "Strangers Wrath" yet, but it is defiantly one of my favourite FPSes. It was different from the other games and I liked that. I thought it was clever having to use critters as ammunition.
    Great game, loving it so far. I cant wait to see what Oddworld pulls out of its box of wonders
    Oh and just a tip oddworld, if you were to remake Abes oddysee in HD, that would be cool.

The gameplay includes switchingThis is such an amazing game, the over all atmosphere and feel of the environment and characters is so unique. The gameplay includes switching between first person and third person, which really works. The characters and surroundings all have gorgeous, detailed textures, and honestly this game could easily pass as a PlayStation 3 game and not just an old Xbox remake. It's a real gem and you'll want to complete this game more than once in case you missed anything the first time around. Expand

    OW:SW had a lot going for it - a brilliantly unique gameplay concept with an interesting story tacked on to it. While I did enjoy the game, IOW:SW had a lot going for it - a brilliantly unique gameplay concept with an interesting story tacked on to it. While I did enjoy the game, I couldn't help but notice the incredibly bland world, clunky controls (especially when switching from third to first person views), and the repetitive/sluggish pacing. These factors held Stranger’s Wrath back from being one of the greats. Expand
