The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated Oddworld: Soulstorm for Xbox Series and Xbox One.
Never played these games. They look appealing.
Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee and Exoddus on PS1 are phenomenal games. Play them anywhere you can find them. They still hold up today and I cannot recommend them enough. Munch and Stranger are mediocre at best and the New n Tasty remake ruined the originals’ charm and visual appeal. For SoulStorm... This game sucks ass. I cannot believe how bad it is from both a pacing perspective and its gameplay. The chapter format makes it arcadey. The crafting and item system makes its sluggish. The enemy AI is frustrating. Exoddus was a puzzle platformer with really creative secrets and the gameplay flowed so well. This game is so poorly designed that the biggest enemy is the game controls and design itself. Original two games are 10s. These new ones are not. New n Tasty is a 7 at best but SoulStorm is the worst game in the series and an embarrassment to Oddworld.
I really liked Munch when I was young. I remember my parents buying the console, that and Arctic Thunder for me for a Christmas present when the console just came out. Playing it now, yeah, it's cool, but it's nothing that special. I really like Stranger's Wrath to this day though.
Game is mediocre imo, NnT was much better. Would advise anyone to wait for a sale.
Agreed. I went in thinking I would like it since I played Abe in the past but it was pretty mediocre.
Yes agree. Glad I got to try it out on PS Plus because I definitely wouldn't have been happy if I'd have paid for it. The crafting system needs a lot more work tbh, it's more or less pointless
Hopefully, this comes to Gamepass.
Would've been nice if they made newer games in the original first 2's style.
This game wasn’t great… no where close to NnT. If you haven’t played it yet, wait for game pass.
Got it free on PS5 via PS+ I surprisingly enjoyed this game
it seems ps5 and xbox have traded 2 mediocre games with each other. medium for soulstorm.. its such a shame because the head guy on this is such a nnice guy.
I'm pretty sure I remember this site going ape about this thing and how they were getting it for free. You know, even though the games that come to gamepass are crap gamepass games. Now it's coming to Xbox, and all of a sudden it's mediocre.
Yeah some people were like: "We get Soulstorm, and it's exclusive to Playstation! OMGeez!" They thought it was exclusive to PS. Now nobody cares cuz it's not exclusive and it was mediocre. They also talked about load times being fast as hell. But of course nobody cares anymore.
Bitch and moan like a littletoddler all you want. That doesnt take away the fact this game released for free on ps plus and was good value at the time.
I never doubted the game's value. I love the series.
Lmao there is 13 comments and 2 being you. How did you get that conclusion? If you look at the reviews and what other people were saying you would know that a lot of people were hype but was disappointed. Typical n4g comment here to play victim.
Did I say anything about the review score? Or did I simply state I remember many Sony fans making a giant deal about this game when it was exclusive, and now it's nothing but negativity in an article that it's coming to Xbox? Oh, and I give you full apologies for making a comment, and also responding to someone. I guess I just responded again to you, so I'm probably a terrible person at this point. Playing victim lol. Just somebody who frequents here, and has reading comprehension. Not saying you don't, just saying I think you are selective in what you address.
Lmao what negativity. Show me one that’s negative. Of course they were excited. I was excited because deep down I knew it was coming to Xbox but after the reviews I was immediately turned off. It was a mediocre game and that’s it. Still gonna try it because I like the game but geez man. Calling out something that’s nothing. Honestly everyone had genuine opinions in this article until your comment.
"I remember this site going ape about this thing and how they were getting it for free" Sometimes I feel like you guys are on a different N4G than the one I use. Soulstorm was barely talked about outside of 'oh, it's coming to PS+? Neat'. But feel free to pull sources to back up your claim that this site, not just one or two people, were going 'ape' about this game.
Welp, guess I misread dozens of comments in multiple articles around the time the game came out, and hadn't noticed all of the negative reviews with a whole bunch of people calling farce on them. Must be going insane. Sad for me. I'm not strolling through this entire site just to prove that. I actually enjoyed the game, for the most part.
What do you mean? According to Ted there is so much negativity in this article. Can’t you see? Must be selective seeing.
TheRealTedCruz Is that any different when it comes to a Nintendo or Xbox exclusive? When game is revealed all of us hope for the best and some games turn out amazing and others don't live up to the hype Instead of saying playstation fans or Xbox fans why not just gamers. Gamers got excited because this franchise use to be great
Because this site has such a giant, obvious bias, and you can't even like a service like gamepass without people trash talking you and calling you a fanboy. I'm trying to balance out this site before it turns into Sony Defense Force 2.0, if you remember that site.
TheRealTedCruz Absolutely not over the last 3 months this site has had more negative new on PlayStation than any other so what are you talking about? We we forgetting the whole fire Jim Ryan Also no one has an issue with GP but issues do come in when Xbox gamers (notice I didn't use fanboys or any other name calling because this is the only way we can have mature conversation) want Sony to have a service where they put all their exclusives day one on the service. Issue with this is first GP users should demand more from Xbox, when Xbox starts making excellent games that sell millions and win more GOTY than any other game in history than let's talk about having games on psn now or similar service to GP. This whole last generation and even now what had Xbox done? This is coming from someone who bought the original Xbox over PlayStation 2 and who currently has an Xbox One x with game pass ultimate. 4th generation in and the best thing you can see about Xbox is well wait for E3 or wait for next year those things have become meme to themselves Once Xbox steps up and I hope it does because we as gamers want awesome games and the better Ms does the better Sony will have to do
And what about the people in the comments section of those articles. I said nothing of the articles posted. I spoke of those here on N4G.
Game Pass has a ton of great games! Now with EA Play included it is even better.
The original 2 where awesome, not hearing great things about this one though
I want a sequel or successor to Strangers Wrath
game breaking bugs prevented me from enjoying the latest one. ill try return to it again to give it a go properly but i have a really sour taste in my mouth already from it
