Gamekit:"The first 13 minutes of Ninja Theory’s next title: Enslaved Odyssey to the West is available to see here. During this first quarter hour we get a glimpse at some action packed cut-scenes, combat and platforming."
This game looks great, but the characters look like crap >_>
Great looking game with incredibly fluid gameplay and massive environments. The platforming looks incredible and Ninja Theory really are a talented bunch. To bad they didn't add a Co-op campaign element or even some multi-player to add some replay value to the game. Ignoring the on line community is not a good idea in this day and age and extremely limits your audience. Vanquish will have the same problem.
Horrendous graphics are goddamned horrendous. Easy, basic platforming is a huge letdown as well. Decent rent at best.
Ghost of Sparta, you must be blind in both eyes. These graphics are amazing. Honestly the graphics are better than 90% of games right now. It has great textures, real-time lighting, excellent character models and amazing facial animations. *The video quality of this clip is poor, but the graphics themselves are very good.
The game looks good, but there's something wrong with it. The inner part of the ship was too yellow, and outside was too bright. The lighting is just too much. The combat is good enough (looks like Infamous 2), and the platforming is only decent (it's just like Uncharted's not difficult, just there for variety). That being said there's just something off about this game. I'm going to rent it first.
wow dis game is fkin gorgeous
but it doesnt have much personality to it.
i don't know what you guys see in this, but I agree with others when they say the graphics are goddammned horrendous. A bunch of washed out colors and super bloom. There are other multiplat games out there that look better than this (e.g., deadspace2, vanquish, dead rising2, rage, crysis2, etc). And what massive environment? A giant ship flying around in the air crashing into the statue of liberty while the rest of the background is the blue sky doesn't justify "amazing and great looking". How do we know that ship isn't just one big rectangular polygon with some wings that have higher polygon counts for the possibly pre-rendered cutscenes?
If I had never played Uncharted I would be impressed.
I guess monkey is Italian sice they're in NY because he sure spounds like one. aside from , game looks stunning. 2010-2011 got a great bunch of games.
I usually don't do this... ...but... Shut up, tool!
I admire youre restraint people dont like this coz it isnt a generic warfare online title. Sheesh, gamers these days...
Wish it was PS3 exclusive because as it is now, the gfx sucks.
How can you even tell? Disagree all you want, people. This is a gorgeous game!
So does your comment
The video is in 360p, not HD. See this in 720p http://www.youtube.com/watc... Is not Uncharted 2 or God of War 3 Heavy wise Graphics, but still have good Graphics.
Ninja Theory decided to use the Unreal Engine 3. I think if they had created a brand new multiplat engine, the game would have looked good. I don't blame the 360 for the game not looking very good.
Please look at the resolution on the characters. I swear, Kratos in GoW 2 looks more detailed than monkey man or whatever his name is.
Saying this was on par with Uncharted 2? I could have sworn reading that. Anyways it doesn't matter cause they freakin lied this looks nothing close to that and it looks kinda boring. Not interested in this. BUT for those who are looking forward to this it doesn't matter what I think I just hope you enjoy the game, just doesn't interest me.
No. The developers said their game would have an art style similar to Uncharted 1. And it does seem to have that. They never said the game was on par with Uncharted 2. A stupid wannabe journalist site twisted their words for hits.
Ahhhh, Ok. Yeah I did read something stupid like that. Thanks for clarifying.
Yes, and I remember when someone said Ninety Nine Nights 2 is the God of War for Xbox 360 http://n4g.com/news/505759/... And yes, there are people saying is on par with Uncharted 2 (clueless people). I don't know if I have to Cry or Laugh about this.
Ahhhh yes LOL, I do remember that! Thanks for digging that up bro. I just kept thinking at the back of my mind I remembering hearing something about that I just didn't want to post without making sure.
How did they come to that conclusion? Looks a lot more like Dynasty Warriors tbh.
Wish i was 360 exclusive it would sell more and look better....the other version prolly have crappy grass,bad textures, and framerate issues
Wtf are you trying to say? you wish you were a 360 exclusive? and prolly? not being mean but lol.
Graphics look great. This may be a good rental
I can't wait to get this now! It looks amazing!
I'm really looking forward to getting this.
I wasn't that impressed...until they got outside of the plane! The lighting looks phenomenal and there's tons of stuff going on at once. Also, the animations, draw distance(jumping outside the plane) and overall fun factor looks really good. The part where the plane is about to crash looks incredible as well. You can see the whole city moving beneath him.
this game looks fog/hazy and not that good "toooo" me. i will pass.
Can anyone say... meh? I considered buying this after it went platinum but after seeing this, I'll pass. Combat is horrendus, graphics average, platforming underwhelming.
Great animation and voice acting! I loved it! I wanna get it.
Don't even pretend to "meh" this game, if this were a ps3 exclusive 95% of N4G wouldn't stop raving about how good this looks. Not all of us drank 1-console Kool Aid.
Exactly. The only reason the PS3 fanboys are hating on it is because they know it does look good and they hate that it isn't a PS3 exclusive. It does look really great. Also, just the fact that the story was penned by Alex Garland (the writer of Sunshine and The Beach) is enough to make me very interested.
Why should I care, I can get the game if I want to, your XBOX360 fanboys are to busy about fanboys all the time, relax and enjoy the game, it looks good.
Wait, the writer of Sunshine is doing this? That was a fantastic movie. Sign me up.
if this were a ps3 exclusive, 95% of n4g would talk about how piss poor the graphics were.
This game just popped up on my radar after watching that video, hadn't checked out any info on the game before. I like the art style, the character looks like he'd fit in Heavenly Sword, similar style. That level looked insane I wasn't expecting that. Anyone have a released date, I think I'll be checking this game out, love the aul hack & slash titles if done correctly.
October 8th for EU: http://gamekit.co.nz/?p=337... and October 7th I think for US.
Thanks for the link (added bubble), 8th of October, that soon already, there's at least 5 games I want to buy in the next few weeks. I'll probably have to put one or two off till Xmas (sucks being in debt).
October 5th for North America. It's been on my calendar for the past couple of months. :)
Looks unbelievably boring. I hope some challenge gets introduced in the later levels. The first 15 minutes look like a whole lot of "run forward and jump" to me. Doesn't look fun at all. No action, no puzzles, no exploration, incredibly simplified platforming... What is everybody seeing in this game? Is it just because it has pretty graphics that you're all gaga over it?
Then the first 13 minutes of uncharted 2 must be just as boring (which is completely ridiculous). This game seems to borrow heavily from UC2's cinematic presentation. A lot of platforming, along with quite a few exilerating moments, minimal enemies, great camera work and animations to boot. You really have to be kidding with a statement like that. I'd really like to know what you find amazing as an introduction to a Videogame because no title pulls all its cards out in the first freakin 13 minutes.
I would just like to point out the obvious, if this were a PS3 exclusive, these fanboys would have nothing negative to say. I expect the same comments for MGS: Rising when its nearing release.
And I just realized many others said the same thing, duh.
