6.5 Enslaved: An Odyssey to a Mess: Review (Spoiler Alert!!)

Since its announcement, Enslaved: Odyssey To The West has been highly anticipated by gamers, and critics.

However, The future is not as beautiful as the past.

The guy must outright hate NT since he starts spilling the plot three minutes in.

Not liking them myself because of their attitude, but that is something else entirely.

GuruStarr782721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

Why would you say something like that? Why would you want someone to fail who is trying to bring a new IP to the table?

I know, as a gamer, I want not only all new IPs to be hits, but most games in general, the more success, the more great new IPs we will see.....what a nice guy you are, you should be ashamed to call yourself a gamer.

I've played through it, and while it's nothing totally groundbreaking, it's fun and I hope to see a sequel with a few tweaks and maybe a longer game.

King-Leonidas2721d ago

you wonder why i hope this game fails? It's NT's attitude towards the ps3. Now as a gamer and Spartan, i cant stand that crap coming from developers.

Active Reload2721d ago

Its ok to be a weirdo on the internet.

Elimin82721d ago

This game was very disappointing.

TerrorCell2721d ago

U sir are not a Spartan. Your just some fat kid in his basement in the dark spooning his ps3

King-Leonidas2721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

Oh noes u just discovered my dark deep secret... *runs off to mcdonalds*

i watched the vid and i don't know WHAT plot it was ...Seriously ..if this vid was spoilers ,then what to you see when you watch gametrailers reviews ??

Godmars2902721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

When a reviewer, or whatever this guy calls himself, blurts out plot points while footage everyone has already seen plays, namely what happens when Trip and Monkey at the end of game, sorry, but I consider that a spoiler. Nevermind the obvious hatred the man has towards the game if not Ninja Theory.

I'm not a fan of them either because of their endless mouth running, but the game does look interesting enough. Even though from what I've heard from other - actual - reviews, playing the demo, it sounds and feels like a platformer on rails. Doesn't speak well of what will happen to DMC, but this game shouldn't be damned for that.

xAlmostPro2721d ago

wow whats with journalists these days? -_- surely you can review a game without having to go into major storylines etc.

DaTruth2721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

How could he put spoilers in a review? A review is for people who haven't yet played the game!

This game is excellent.

FernandoMartinez2721d ago

No it's not. It's mediocre at best...

Kran2721d ago

Somebody who hasnt even played the game ¬¬

Kran2721d ago

Yeh. You probs played the 1st chapter and thought: No UI display? I give up on this game ¬¬

MysticStrummer2721d ago

It could have used some more polish, but I enjoyed the hell out of it, The only other person on my list who played it said the same. It's better than mediocre.

evercast2721d ago

Ive played the game through and loved every single minute of it. One of the best games of the year, and yes I have played all the big hits and most of the smaller hits this year. GOTY contender in my book.

Why have PS owners changed their mind about this game all of a sudden?

MetricTwo2721d ago

Because in the months of press coverage for the game, a few people associated with the studio have mentioned in passing a few things that, when ripped from their contexts in 30 minute interviews and blown out of proportion, are slightly down on the PS3. Unfortunately, the small minority of PS3 owners who treat the console as a religious figure and have taken the situation way too seriously, also happen to post about half of the comments on this site.

XRider2721d ago

I just noticed a trend today. It's too bad realy with that much anger and hate one could miss out on a lot of great games.

DaTruth2721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

Where are their ripped out of their context, blown out of proportion, slightly down on the 360 remarks?


MetricTwo2721d ago (Edited 2721d ago )

@Da Truth

For example, just yesterday or the day before there was story that reached the top "hot spot" on the site. The story was about a small portion of an interview with Alex Garland, who wrote the script for Enslaved. In it, he's explaining why he hadn't played Heavenly Sword when it came out and mentioned that he was sick of his PS3 because there wasn't anything on it at the time (this was in 2007, btw). If you read the comments, it's just amazing how many people were offended by someone saying they didn't like their PS3 three years ago.

If my statement bothered you because you're a PS3 owner, you should know that I am too. That's why articles like that bother me so much. They get all of us bent out of shape over trivial comments. Plus, it encourages the kind of crap journalism that grabs snippets of an interview hoping to get more hits by pissing off fans.

Here's the link to the story I mentioned, if you're interested:

Spoilers isn't on regardless of not liking them, totally agree with you godmars.

But Ninja theory need to stop with the silly talk, people don't like it.

I don't think this game looks great, it looks good.

R_aVe_N2721d ago

Lol that was a odd review to say the least... He was very unimpressed by the game like some of the other big reviewers. "Apparently he had nothing better to do.. So what the heck enslave him... who cares!" That is really funny if you ask me.
