Enslaved PC video review - a lack of options kills the game - CramG

Namco Bandai Games re-released their console action adventure game from developers Ninja Theory for the PC audience, but with the game coming some years later, how well does it stack up in today's competitive market? (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PC) 4.5/10

Its a shame I always thought this title was great a sleeper hit.

Agreed, i thought it was harshly treated because of Ninja Theorys "move to the dark side" and going Multiplat - The game was pretty good, only lacking in the amount of comat moves available

Quote from review:

"If you have a controller and mess with the game files, then there is a decent game here that’s worth playing, especially for the asking price. As it stands, Enslaved doesn't possess the kind of polish or user interface expected from today’s games and therefore scores less than its console cousin."

PC has higher standards, but still a fun game.

I like this game 8\10 from me

the thing is, NT games were always an "8" game. 8 is not bad, but I wish they put more effort into their games. Enslaved is still a great game under my book.

7/10 game.
Needs more moves, though that was fixed by DmC.

I loved this game, worth a shot on consoles atleast. to bad it didn't do well and no sequel will be made.

This game was fun on consoles, beat it awhile ago. Def worth the playthrough

I played the PS3 version myself, and unless this game is unplayable on PC, a 4,5 out of 10 is out of the question.

This game is an AAA quality game that delivers good characters, gameplay, storyline and visuals. Certainly not one of the best games ever made, but definitely at least a 6/7 on the 10-scale.

Ya this review is a pretty cheap shot. I have played it on PC, it looks gorgeous and runs silky smooth @ 1920x1080. I will say it doesn't translate well to mouse and keyboard. I have a PC/X360 controller and it plays fine. Much better than the console version. The other item I had and issue with was the terrible motion blur, which can very easily be turned off in the .ini file.

A 4.5 though? No. I would say 8.5/10

This is the best version of the game. 4.5?? what a crock.

Edit: Crapgaming.com is more like it.

wtf? The PC version is easily the best version. Better visuals and 60fps compared to the crap fps you were getting on the consoles...

it still looks 10x better than ANY GAME ever has or ever will on ps3

just the fact that it isn't covered in jaggies and dirty sub-hd resolutions and textures make it better looking than any game ever to come out on ps3 or xbox360

Great game, glad it finally came to pc.

So another half-assed port with poor keyboard and mouse controls. Makes me wonder when they can't even code it in a port right.

If you have an controller the game is fine though. I wont make any excuses for them though. This is why I hate ports.
