RePlayed: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

GodisaGeek: "Some games can do everything right, from narrative to combat, to character and world design, and yet still fail to resonate with the mighty gestalt beast that is the gaming public. Regardless of production values, big names attached to the cast or crew, or even the source material upon which they’re based, some titles just can’t catch that break when it comes to sales. Even a game that can score as high as 8 or 9 in almost every single review, and elicit smiles and nods and assertions of “Ah, that was an excellent game” every time its name is mentioned just can’t shift enough units to be certified a “success”. As a some-time champion of such titles, I could reel off a list as long as your left leg of games that should have been instant classics, yet were relegated to the bargain bin in record time."

enslaved was underrated, but nt had to open here mouths.

Godchild10201263d ago

It was released the same day as Castlevania: Lords of Shadow and well it was over shadowed by a bigger marketing strategy.

I enjoyed it.

NastyLeftHook01263d ago

i played it and i enjoyed it too, the story was actually interesting.

Bimkoblerutso1263d ago

Yeah, I liked it too. DmC made me realize how great the Andy Serkis/Alex Garland collaboration was. The characters and story were just so much more interesting in Enslaved.

Ninja Theory made a decent game with a great story and awesome characters. They do some of the best cutscenes around. Shame this game was ruined by their unprofessional clownshoes remarks plus using the Unreal engine and the audacity to say this game would of been better than Uncharted. Oh well. Rented it, enjoyed it, got over it.

Oooh Castlevania...that was amazing. Can't wait for the sequel.

^It makes me feel sorry for the folks actually making these games underneath all of the asshole PR's and "chiefs" that like to run their arrogant mouths off every chance they get.

It just seems like if they were able to make WHATEVER they wanted without the corporate fat-cats pushing them to steal a fanbase from another franchise (Heavenly Sword -> GoW, Enslaved -> Uncharted, DmC -> DMC) they could make something really great.

Played it this past summer, it was pretty good.

Yeah it had great characters and a decent story line. From a platinum point of view it was pretty easy except for finding all 1700 odd orbs. Sheesh!

Loved Enslaved.
Had an interesting story, interesting characters and an inspired (read: non-brown) post apocalyptic setting.
I never understood why this game was so disliked by so many people.

JoySticksFTW1263d ago

I think Ninja Theory themselves are the reason people don't like the game.

I liked it. Loved Heavenly Sword. But I'm one of those gamers that wish NT reps weren't such arses.

Makes you almost feel bad supporting them. Heck, I know there are gamers that will only buy NT games used or borrow because NT leaves such a bad taste in their mouths.
