Stranger's Wrath HD First Review, Price, Trophies, Theme, Shirts

#1 Posted by Timing (634 posts) -

Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath HD has been complete for some time, and now it's received its first review, a glowing 9/10 from Eurogamer:

On its initial release, this wonderful piece of work was all but ditched at retail by a publisher that didn't seem to understand what it was dealing with. Now Stranger's Wrath has finally received the lavish treatment it deserves, and the gaming world has a chance to reclaim one of its brightest treasures.

While a release date has still not been announced (it should be out 'very soon'), the review does mention the price it'll be going for, which is £9.99/€11.99/$14.99.

A Trophy list was also unveiled some time ago, which includes 37 Trophies (including a platinum one):

I wonder if one of the hidden Trophies is for capturing every bounty alive. That'd be a cool challenge because I remember Packrat Palooka being one of the hardest 'bosses' to keep alive.

They've also made a dynamic theme which has been available on the US PSN since last week and will be up in Europe today. It's $2.99/£1.59/€1.99 and looks like this:
Now I never buy dynamic themes, but I think this one looks very well made and I'd probably get it just to support these guys.

Finally, if you are so inclined, you can now even pre-order T-shirts inspired by the game.
