Enslaved Review Scans from GamesMaster Are Now Out In The Open

"A couple of weeks ago it was rumored that the new issue of GamesMaster contains the first official Enslaved Review and that the score was quite decent – 86%. In the meantime the rumor was confirmed by the magazine’s subscribers, but the first Enslaved Review Scans are surfacing only now, and here." (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PS3, Xbox 360) 86/100

The game is 10 hours long.
Thanks, that's all I needed to know, can't wait to play it :D

I warn everyone though, after reading the article, they are doing a minor spoiler about the ending on page 4 (it occurs 2 times) :/ And it's also found in the last quote from the magazine they make in the article.

Thanks for the heads up. I hate spoilers.

This sounds great. I have been looking forward to this game.

Thanks for the spoiler warning. I don't want to read any spoilers before I play it.

With no co-op or multiple endings to encourage a second play through, even if this game is stellar, it's a rental.
firelogic  +   1809d ago
Agreed. A part of me wants it to be disappointing in sales because of the raping they're doing to one of my favourite franchises.

Does no one replay games for fun any more?

@unicron

I replayed Dead Space several times. But I do appreciate it if the developer adds multiple endings or extra content to make me replay the game.

I played the demo and while the core gameplay isn't that special or great by any means, they definitely sold it well. The presentation is great. Platforming is like Uncharted2 but the controls aren't as tight. So far it feels a lot like heavenly sword, good but not great.

Platforming felt automated, I was just spamming the jump button and pressing forward most of the time and on normal difficulty, it's like the game played itself , and the combat is a copy of HS and uninteresting.

The good thing is the graphics and cinematics.

Rental at best.

I felt the combat a lot simpler than HS's. I mean HS combat was about stances (long and short range sword fighting) and counter moves which added a very nice level of strategy. I dont remember the Enslave demo to be that deep.
tiamat5  +   1809d ago
I agree. It felt wrong. Combat felt clumsy as did climbing and even just walking. Nice effort to try and mix up the gameplay but this definately won't be on my must buy list. Rental or used maybe
firelogic  +   1809d ago
I shudder at the thought of how DMC will play considering HS wasn't the tightest and smoothest of controlling games, and now I read this about Enslaved.

Excellent game!
Loved the demo, can be dowloaded through the U.K. playstation store right now. Well worth it! I think this game will receive great reviews. Day 1 for me!
