Critic Reviews for Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD

Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath is a strange game that still sticks out because of its unusual but fantastic tone.

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Wrath HD keeps showing that its offering was very original in 2005, and now, with this new edition, it doesn't feel outdated and at the same time it improves resolution, fps, loading times and add new features as movement control when aiming...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.

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

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.

Something of a welcome throwback to when games revelled in creativity and developers weren't afraid to combine deeper, more profound themes with some smart genre blending, Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath ascends beyond its mish-mash of platforming shootery to create a memorable effort that a whole new generation of gamers can finally enjoy in its best form. Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath might not be perfect, but it is delightfully odd, full of charm and laden with surprise and that, in 2022, still remains more than enough to make it irresistible.

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.

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.
