Stranger's Wrath

Just posted an article over at Retro-Gaming and Emulation about a long time favorite of mine, Stranger's Wrath (Xbox, 2005). It has recently been remade for the PC as part of the Oddboxx and has a PS3 remake imminent. But, in my opinion, this is one of timeless games that really doe not need a remake (they did not get much wrong with the original, and it doe not feel dated at all).

It is a action adventure/platformer/first-person shooter, and it even manages to fill all of these roles without becoming a confusing mess. And heavily mixed in is a great plot with a message very relevant to our turbulent times; A message warning of the evils of capitalism, consumerism, corporations, and industrialization.

So if you have a Xbox available (or would rather go with one of the remakes), I highly encourage you to checkout Stranger's Wrath.
