Stranger's Wrath took a whole new approach to the Oddworld formula when it launched in 2005. There would be no platforming here, just a straight action-adventure game centering around collecting and apprehending bounties for â€œmoolah.â€ It was yet another way to immerse us in Oddworld, and once again the game succeeded.
Stranger's Wrath incorporated some new design ideas that some games still use today, like the quick transitions between first and third-person gameplay throughout. Other ideas, like â€œlive ammunitionâ€ or ammo made from living fictional creatures with different attributes, have yet to be emulated, but we don't think they'd fit anywhere else but Oddworld. If you have yet to play Stranger's Wrath, make this HD upgrade your excuse to do so.
