About This Game

You're the Stranger, a mysterious bounty hunter on a mission to bag the ultimate prize. And you need that money like no one else because there is something very wrong with your health and the only way to fix it is a very costly operation. However the nature of your illness remains a secret and as you find out during the game, for a good reason.

In the dusty, undeveloped wastelands of Western Mudos, cantankerous townsfolk find their settlements besieged by belligerent outlaws. Along comes Stranger, a tall, dark and enigmatic bounty hunter with a mission to capture troublemakers and scoundrels and return them to civilized townships for incarceration.

But Stranger is keeping a secret and needs expensive surgery to survive. In his quest to earn enough Moolah, Stranger reluctantly accepts the ultimate bounty from the owner of the Mongo River and suddenly his adventure takes a very different turn.

Key Features:

  • Fire Live Ammo! Launch critters at your enemies. Distract them with Chippunks, encase them in Bolamite webbing, or destroy them with Stingbees and explosive bats.
  • Accept missions from the Bounty Store and talk to neurotic townsfolk to learn where your bounty can be found.
  • 1st/3rd Person gameplay.
  • Easter eggs.
  • Unlockables.
  • 35 Achievements.
  • Three modes of difficulty.

This game quickly became a stapple of my childhood back on the original xbox. I remember waking up early before school and playing before the day had even begun. Its a fantastic blend between 1st and 3rd person view that no other game has seemed to capture. It looks great and plays even better for its age. And the crude, dark humor really makes it a part of the Oddworld universe. I will never forget my first runthrough of this game. One of my top five games of all time, hands down.

Buy it.

This Game Is A blast! I First played This Game On The original XBOX. It's The Only Game I Ever Played On A Console. When I Saw It On Steam I Had To Have It. I Don't Usually Play Single Player Mode, But I Loved This FPS/3rd Person Game. It's Worth The Sale Price For Sure!

Strangers Wrath was one of my all time favorite games for the xbox. I really enjoyed the stealth bounty aspect of the game. And all the silly volgar little characters add such a twisted hummor to the game. The story is very unique and very exciting on your first play through.

This has to be one of my favorite games of all time. Very few games make me wish they were longer. Out of all the oddworld games this one is the best. You use a mix of third-person platforming, and first-person shooting. It mixes very well. You spend most of the game fighting outlaws as a badass bounty hunter, but there is a still an amazing story to go along with it. It is also full of surprises. I recommend this to anyone that loves playing video games.

Pretty fairly good game so far, played the game back when i was a kid and didn't thought too much of it tho.
The game is packed and bursting with a lot of style from the intro sequel you can get that, aside from everything the gameplay has a pretty nice flow and a very decent level of effect when it comes to the charisma of it's characters going beyond the stranger himself to enemies and bosses. It't truly one of the last games too keep itself true as it mixes the good things about modern gaming (as they were striking it) as well as the good things from old games, oh and the crosbow is just amazing.

I use to see this game a lot at the video store as a kid and it really intrigued me but not enough to hire it out, never really gave it solid try and I regreted that decision until now. Thoroughly enjoyed playing this game in its entirety, the Oddworld universe is represented extremely well in this game with its dry humor and incredibly dark setting. There is not much of a connection between Strangers Wrath and the other Oddworld games beyond small refernces to products manufactured by the Glukkons and Vykkers (Bad guys in the previous games) spread throughout the Mongo Valley, but this detachment from the other games is not a bad thing as it gave the game an ability to explore more of the Oddworld universe and what inhabits it.

Some bad things about the game, well the actual story and gameplay was enjoyable and the PC port controls were really smooth but trying to get a controller working on my end was an extreme pain so I just gave up. The soundtrack was freaking radical, whenever the tunes started it really helped set the scene but the downside to this was the music sometimes bugged and stopped playing for me!

In short if you can't be bothered reading whats above (Sounds better in my head). I really recommend you get this game if you are a fan of the Oddworld and its dark setting. If you just found the first two games a pain in the egg to complete this is a refreshing ride.
[8.5/10]

Overall it's a very good game, first played it back when it was released on the Xbox and I loved it then and I still love it now. I will not be giving away any spoilers because it's a game that everyone should play at least once, when I first picked up this game on Steam the only achievements were to get the bounties and now they added more and I think that’s great to see. However hearing people complain about that some achievements are broken does confuse me because all of them but one worked fine for me, The one that is broken for me is Sekto Suicide (at the time of writing this review) I went through the entire game three times (on each difficulty) and I earned the correct achievements for each difficulty, But when finishing it on hard mode to find out it's broken did ♥♥♥♥ me off a little bit but still does not hurt my love for this game and Oddworld games as a overall. I would give the game 9/10 only because like I said at the time of writing this people are having problems with earning achievements. If it ever gets fixed then change that nine to a ten! Basically...GET THIS GAME!

Having played this game as a child, replaying it was an interesting experience.
The gameplay is unique, with the 2nd/3rd person combination and the 'live' munitions concept, although the whole 'run around and bounty some dude' that makes up the first half of the game feels stale after a while, but it is definately bareable and countered by the variety in environments and various enemy boss fights, which are all individually memorable.
The plot and dialogue is actually quite good, it caught me off guard with its witty humour, charm and twists.
The graphics in this HD update are reasonable given the games age.

The music is a little scarce but fairly fitting for the environment, but the sounds used are something i really couldnt stand. NPCs often repeat quotes over and over again, and weapon noises are the same, making for a frustrating and annoying experience occasionally, most noticable the later portions of the game.
The game itself is actually fairly short, being a linear action/adventure game, i finished it up in about 10 hours on hard, and it doesnt offer a tonne of replayability outside of steam achievements, and i noted a problem with the steam achievement system and the games save system with collectables.

The game is fairly short, but its definately an entertaining blast and rewarding and memorable to playthrough.

Stranger's Wrath, well, were do I begin. I'd like to point out that because this is an HD remake that the graphics and sound are fantastic, but what about the game. Well, you learn early in the game that the protaginist bounty hunter, Stranger, has an urgent medical problem that needs to be taken care of, otherwise he will die, but the procider will cost 20,000 mullah(and in the game not only will u receive at most 500-1000 mullah at max from bounty hunting, u are constantly buying upgrades(unless u want to cheat by constantly beat up the towns-folk))(not to mention that the only resemblense to the other oddworld games with this one is Vlukkons and the Glukkons(yep, not even the Mudokuns apear in this installment,but it doesnt matter)), so Stranger is forced to do more bounties. Thats all I'll say about the story. The gameplay is also fantastic due to the genuies 1st/3rd person style gameplay with the Critter Lancher, one of the best weapons in gaming history due to fact that it can lanch any critter Stranger can fit on the hand crossbow and use them as ammo(the lightning bugs are the only critters that u use to farm critters and also have an unlimited ammo). The other elements are also done very well, as how you have to capture enemies and bounty people alive to get a lot more profit(its the dead profit times by high timing numbers like 5 or 4 or 3 or even 6). I dont know what else to say, get the game in the Oddbox(since buying the game by itself is stupid, seeing the Oddbox is 10 USD and Stranger's Wrath by itself is 10 USD), and play this magnificent game as well as the others now!
