Oddworld Soulstorm





Oddworld Soulstorm 


At some point in the past my dad purchased a copy of Oddworld Soulstorm on the PS5. None of us have gotten around to play it though. Then Oddworld Soulstorm was being ported to the Xbox One and Xbox Series X. We got offered a video sponsorship to play Oddworld Soulstorm on the Xbox systems. Were you able to check out my live stream of Oddworld Soulstorm? If not, you can find it in the video section of our website. That live stream will be appearing on our video channels when we have the bandwidth to upload them. This is my first exposure to the Oddworld franchise. I did some research and chatted with those that have played previous video games in this franchise.

I found Oddworld Soulstorm is really tight on the timing. You have to play this game nearly flawlessly to progress in some areas. Vykkers Labs is a great example of this. I tried playing it first and learned that I needed to play the main game some to learn how to play this game. Oddworld Soulstorm is a lot harder than I was expecting. Oddworld Soulstorm is a video game for hardcore gamers interested in a real challenge. This is just one aspect of Oddworld Soulstorm that I feel is not for our target audience.

Families can expect violence, bad language, blood, gore, and more in Oddworld Soulstorm. When our character dies they generally explode into some gore I have not seen in many ‘M’ rated video games. Oddworld Soulstorm was given the ‘T’ rating which I question. We can possess enemies from certain locales and make them murder one another. We can also explode the enemies, have them fall on mines and more to help us make it through the challenging areas. We can swipe mines away if we time it absolutely perfect. Oddworld Soulstorm is not a forgiving video game.

The blood, gore, and bad language are areas within Oddworld Soulstorm that also make it a video game that is not a great target for our audience as well. In fact I am not sure why some of that was needed in Oddworld Soulstorm. I was also confused by what was going on in the beginning of Oddworld Soulstorm. These characters died and I had no clue who they were. Are they important to us? I honestly had no clue and no idea. Was I supposed to be sad they were gone?

For me Oddworld Soulstorm is in a really weird position. We purchased a copy of the game, and were given a video sponsorship much later. I am not a fan of this franchise in any way, shape or form. The graphics are nice, and the audio sounds good. The main replay is to die less I suppose. I see little reason to replay Oddworld Soulstorm personally. Oddworld Soulstorm is not really my flavor if you know what I mean. I do not think Oddworld Soulstorm is a good game for families either.
