Oddworld Stranger's Wrath


Oddworld Stranger's Wrath is a brilliant bounty-hunter game from the off-beat creators of the Oddworld series. You roam through a fantastic world chasing down enemies with your arsenal of living creatures.

Oddworld Stranger's Wrath The game is extremely well animated and rendered, with a variety of creatures that you immediately connect with. There are little multi-teethed killer Fuzzles, the oh-so-cute Chippunks, flying creatures, smelly creatures, and more. You fire all of these with your crossbow, wreaking mayhem on your enemies.

The theory here is that you're trying to capture as many bad guys as you can alive, to get the largest bounty for them. Different enemies call for different capture techniques. Some require the flying monsters, while others need to be wound up in a cocoon. It's all done with an "old west" motif, with drawling, laconic discussion and dusty, tumbleweed landscapes.

We love the game. The dialogue is brilliant at times, the gameplay is engaging. Your ammo is just so much fun! They talk back to you, laugh as they are flung at the enemies and have a variety of attack styles. When you run out, you just go to a patch of weeds and track down some more.

The game goes between first person and third person and does so rather well. My only real complaint is with the camera, which at times gets caught behind buildings and other obstacles.

The game guides you along nicely. You are pursuing bounty person X, you know their hideout area, you go there and find them. It keeps you moving along in the right direction.

If there's a real complaint, it is that the game does NOT work on the XBox 360. This is one of the only reasons we were holding onto our ancient XBox system and I would much rather be playing this on the XBox 360. It looks very unlikely that they're ever going to patch the 360 to support this older game, though.

Still, if you own an XBox, I definitely recommend finding this game!
