I just realized that today is the day that Stranger's Wrath HD comes out, anyone try it out yet? what're your thoughts? I played the xbox version back in the day and tried to play the oddbox version but it doesn't like my computer so i'm pumped to finally be able to play it again soon :D
Anyone try out the HD remake yet?
Oh and they've added subtitles too, which is not that necessary anymore since they also greatly improved the audio quality of the voices (which was horrible in the original version). Thing is, the subtitles often don't match what's being said at all which makes it seem kind of sloppy but also unintentionally funny.
Don't let those two negative points influence your decision though. They're really minor and the game itself is still great.
Yes dude! It's great, aside from the voices sometimes cutting out. It plays just like I remember and for the work they've obviously put into it (they've made it very pretty) the price is very fair.
What is the price?
See also the official Oddworld.com page for more information.
Oh and keep in mind that the game's 3.2GB big, which is also supposedly part of the reason why it's not on XBLA. Since my PS3 downloads way slower than my 360 for some reason, it took me all night to download it. Totally worth it though.
@Doctorchimp: Well as it says on the page I linked they've completely remodelled and retextured many parts of the game, and as a result it really does look quite good. They've also hidden a few secrets in it, added two difficulty modes (the original only had 'normal', this also has easy and hard) and gave the game 37 Trophies (including a platinum one). Oh and some unlockable concept art and movies but I don't think many people really care for those.
I should say though, that they're planning on adding all of this to the PC version in a free update, but that will likely take around three months.
Here's the trailer to give you an impression of what it looks like
I'm a little late , but yes I bought it and it's surprisingly fantastic . I wasn't sure if I wanted to get it cause I bought it on steam for like 2 bucks and it's really buggy(barely played it) , but I picked it up thanks to it being $5 off for PS+ members . It looks gorgeous ! I always wanted to play it back on the xbox , but my brother sold his xbox just before I wanted to try it . I really wished they had it on Xbox Live , but now it's available on psn and everyone who hasn't played it PLEASE GIVE IT A SHOT . I'm raving about it , and I still haven't finished it .
Does anyone know when the Abe's Odyssey remake releases or know anything about it ?
