Do not demoralize: we are facing a 'great game' in its time, an advance to its time, and you have to play it to know what we mean. Although the graphic section is simple, it looks good on Nintendo Switch, and if you play in portable mode, it is much more enjoyable than on television, where we can see more about its tasks

Stranger's Wrath HD keeps showing that its offering was very original in 2005, and now, with this new edition, it doesn't feel outdated and at the same time it improves resolution, fps, loading times and add new features as movement control when aiming... Some details don't hide its age, but it's a great adventure, and this is its best version.

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is still a good game, thanks to its unique style and a compelling, slow, fascinating wierd-western narration. The charming adventure of the Stranger it's a manifesto of the most ambitious visions of early 2000s and, despite some technical flaws and some naive choices, it's still surprisingly fresh and elegant. The Switch porting could have been slicker and better, because framerate issues and clumsy controls in a remastered in 2020 are not acceptable anymore.

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is an enjoyable remaster which has managed to age with grace, bringing back a classic feeling that isn’t too dated and is just as easy to play now as it was back in 2005.

For the more dedicated fans, or newbies willing to discover a glorious saga ready to relaunch, however, a little more motivation will be needed to justify the € 30 required, perhaps not just a few for a review of gaming history certainly appreciated, but not then so essential.

Complaints aside, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is a fun, unique take on shooters. Given that the HD remaster is around a decade old, Stranger's Wrath does look and feel a little dated. However, if you can look past its age, there's still a mighty fine experience to be had here.

Despite these rough edges, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath is still a joy to play on Switch, and if you didn't experience it the first time around, it's well worth a look now.

Stranger's Wrath was indeed a pure gem when it released in 2005, was very welcome on other systems and you can have the fondest memories of it. But the stranger looks and feels very old as it comes back on Nintendo Switch. It still has a good heart but doesn't really shine anymore in terms of graphics or gameplay. Still, it has this fantastic western atmosphere. And it is a part of video games history that has to be known. But mostly that makes us hope for some kind of makeover, Abe style.
