Review Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath

Vlad Popa
9.4Excellent
Unusual yet amazing gameplay, awesome combination of gyroscope and virtual button controls, first and third person view modes blended into one game
High price
Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath for Android is a unique blend of 3rd person action, 1st person shooter and platformer gameplay, with just a hint of stealth elements and plenty of crazy other elements that blend in seamlessly to form a game it is amazingly brilliant, hugely amusing, and a great deal of fun. The game is a beautiful remake of the 2005 classic game, released in 2010 for the Playstation 3 and PC.
The game follows the exploits of the Stranger, a bounty hunter set to earn enough “moolah” for a vague life-saving operation. This is done by defeating outlaws and capturing them, dead or alive. It is played from both a 1st person and 3rd person perspective. The first is used for shooting the Stranger’s unique weapon, that uses live ammunition in the form of an array of critters. Each critter has its own use, from a distraction to stuns and traps. In third person mode, the player can perform platforming mechanics, such as double jumps and rope climbs, but also engage in melee combat and capture enemies.
The game’s graphics are beautiful enough, though not quite outstanding. The graphics manage to reveal the game’s age, despite the HD remake. Plenty of detail has gone into designing the beautiful world that the Stranger inhabits. Odd creatures and inhabitants are created in such a way that they blend seamlessly with the environments. Sometimes this poses a problem for smaller screens as the enemies will be difficult to spot due to the use of similar colors with the terrain. This merely adds a new level of challenge to the game and will be only a slight inconvenience.
Overall Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is a true masterpiece. It is an epic game that just goes to show how far mobile gaming has come, and is an outstanding example of how true games should look for any platform.
