IGN-Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath Vita Review

IGN:Stranger's Wrath is about Stranger, a bounty hunter who tracks Oddworld criminals in an attempt to raise money for an unexplained surgery that he "needs to survive." Occasional parts of the plot drag as mission after mission seems slotted in to extend the length of the game, but the twist which I won't spoil here is great. Stranger's Wrath's story may not be the stuff of Oscars, but the clear attention to detail in the world kept me engaged in the universe and wanting to see the plot through to the end.

This deserves better. I don't understand IGN, they give overpriced shitty iOS games a 9 and gives this full smooth awesome game a 7.5

I never understood that. See a game like Angry Birds nearly get a 10 on IGN, they praise it for everything and "innovation" then turn around and give a game like this or Assassins Creed, Borderlands etc an 8 or lower. Then handheld titles struggle to even get that far....

Isn't it scary that reviewers singlhandedly control the sales of every game except CoD?
Those 20 year old IGN writers control the industry.

@ ginsunuva
That's not really true. Theres lots of games that have had great sales despite bad reviews.

I love this game and series. This is what I give to them all. (The GB/GBC games are terrible, don't play them. They have no connection to the series, just a cash out from an outside developer.)

Abe's Oddysee 10/10
Abe's Exoddus 10/10
Munche's Odysse 9/10
Stranger's Wrath 9/10

I bought it on day one and have been loving it so far. Never got a chance to pick it up on the original xbox so this is a lovely introduction. I'd give it a 9/10 for being an entertaining and fluid game. This is how you port a game, i'd like to thank the developers for not just putting out a crappy product just to make a quick buck.
