I remember playing Oddworld: Abe’s Exodus on the original PlayStation. I liked the puzzle aspect, but it smelled too much like Sega Genesis’ Out of This World. I can’t tell you how many curses I’ve cried out in heaven over it. But it’s not the games. It’s a crazy world: Wrath of the Stranger was first released on Xbox in 2005. Yes, the original Xbox, not the Xbox 360 or One (damn Microsoft and their console names). It’s been a long time since he got good grades, but for some reason I never played him then.
Here we are at the beginning of the sweet era of Nintendo Switch game systems that we have all learned to love and adore. Someone thought it would be a good idea to revisit and push some of the games that many of us may have never had the chance to play. This is great, and I urge you to support it until that fateful day when someone finally wakes up and realizes that what we really want is Eternal Darkness: Sanity Requiem 2002. I think I’ll say that every time I replay a game from that time.
Stranger is probably one of the coolest video game characters ever made. I liked it right away. He’s the average bounty hunter in the Oddball universe. You check it in the third or first person. It’s actually a really cool aspect of the game and probably revolutionary for the time. Your job is to bring moolah rewards to pay for a mysterious operation that will save your life. Well, we have a moral reason to put bad guys in jail or kill them.
I’m warning you now, this game is going to be like it was in 2005, because it was. Everything could be fine now. You buy this game because you were a fan of the original and you want to play it again. You don’t need that test. Just go shopping and have a good time. However, if you are like me and have nothing to do with the 2005 version, then this magazine is for you. Should you put your hard-earned money (or mom and dad’s) into it? Actually, my answer is a mixture.
The graphics are bright and crisp and move like a switch. I didn’t notice any slow falls or terrible cracks or anything like that. Graphically, Stranger is well designed, and there are many interesting things to see. Stranger Rage is aesthetically pleasing, and there are some interesting characters that might make you laugh a little.
Sound is another story. Voice recordings – NO. In 2005, there were a lot of games where you could just reuse character models for reasons I didn’t know. Maybe it was because of the memories, maybe it was laziness, or maybe it was for financial reasons. But the fact is that you see a lot of characters who have almost identical voices and looks, and the voices of these characters are intentionally made to try to be funny. You’re no fun. They’re boring if you’re not twelve. Then you can be more forgiving.
Where this game really pushes me over the edge is in the mechanics of the game. First, a camera that doesn’t move in the mountains or hang on to something has always been a stumbling block for me. You tend to latch on to stupid things you don’t see and immediately feel frustrated. Additionally, the camera movement in third person is extremely slow, which quickly becomes a problem. So you’re saying that if I can see the ground, I can jump off and not get hurt? Great! Just let me push up (if you don’t reverse the controls) and see where the bottom is. Any second now… and I can almost see it in 10 seconds, but no, I can’t because it doesn’t go that far. Let’s jump up and down and look at… a dead man. That’s all I’m saying. Thank you!
The first man is not much better. It can be fun, but the problem is that I was trying to shoot the little creatures so you could reload your weapon. You see, your ammo consists of creatures you have to hunt to replenish your supplies. Yeah, it’s pretty cool. I played with the sticks to control Stranger, and I had trouble hitting anything because it was just so sensitive. I’m really tired of this game because of her.
Like I said, if you’re already an Oddworld fan: Stranger Rage, you don’t need my advice to buy it or not. However, if you’re sitting in the hot seat because you’re not sure if it’s your cup of tea, remember that the orders are very dated, the game is probably translated very accurately for modern times, and that’s how it feels. Still, I enjoyed the game as a whole. If you can overcome some of my problems, you can have fun and help strangers get some moolah.

Final thoughts : WARNINGS
It’s a crazy world: Stranger’s Wrath is a high-definition remake of the game released in 2005, and is played exactly like this one. The third-person games from that era had camera issues that were very annoying, so expect those to come into play. The story is cool and the character design is very good. If you can forgive that the controls are very wobbly, then you can have a lot of fun with this game.
