Unfortunately there are not many original games for Xbox. Is this gap well filled by Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath? It is a matter of taste. Personally – fills in the middle. But if you want to buy it, think twice or even three times. Why? Since the game is very, very strange.
Perhaps I exaggerate. Perhaps I have seen too many mainstream games and such games like Oddworld seem to me strange. Either way, no longer are controlling Abe anymore, known from the PSX parts. Stop whining sadly because the new hero is also good. Our sheriff is a real caution – he is doing a lot and speaking little. And if he says something, it’s always something funny :). We like such characters.
The story itself is not very surprising. You’re just the sheriff and you’re trying to bring order and harmony. The very atmosphere of western evokes smile on the player’s face. It’s okay. And the videos are made professionally. Gameplay is at least strange. The figure is packed with a lot of frames but it is not perfect anyway. Our sheriff’s run is a little bit irritating – like a monkey. It is quite funny, but only for the first time. Fight itself is a little monotonous and not surprising. You shoot a bow and the cartridges are … living creatures! There are a lot of types of those monsters so there is plenty to choose from. Funny thing.
Overall, buy this game if you like a bit unusual titles. I enjoyed it, but there is no frenzy.
