NXT Gamer: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

NXT Gamer's Duncan reviews Ninja Theory's Enslaved.

"The greatest compliment I can give to Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is that it made me care. It’s not often that a game manages this. Sure, many games are good at eliciting excitement or fear. But empathy? That’s rare."

Spoilt for choice with this and Castlevania, both brilliant games.

The standard for brilliant has been lowered, it seems.

Both games are slightly above average. Nothing more, and nothing less.

I just finished Enslaved last night and I would have to disagree. The game was excellent. It had a few technicle issues but over amazing experience, ninja theory did a great job.

Im attracted to both games but if i had to buy one of them first it would be Castlevania cause gameplay wise it seems much more complex than Enslaved and that i like.And also i love the art design on Castlevania. (image below)
But still i recommend both games for action adventure hack n slaher fans out there.

it's amazing that enslaved is a multiplat yet is better than all 3rd person exclusives before it. Ninja Theory rocks!!!!!!!

Uncharted 2 beats it down...just my opinion of course.

I liked Enslaved a lot but I think the pro reviewers are hyping it a bit much (which I guess counter-balances some of the Castlevania fans who feel the need to bash it.... no one on this thead yet but in other forums i have read).

For instance who did you really care for in this game and how is that any different then caring for say...Master Chief and Cortana (sure she was an AI but at least not a selfish little brat). Monkey was cool and I felt bad for him being in the situation he was in, but not sure I felt that bad for anyone else in the game. ....well some fish...but thats really it.

Edit after reading reveiw:
I agree with his assessment of the animation and how you can "read between the lines" on what the characters really think despite what they may have said. The animations are excellent.

Also, I did not experience any of the tecnical glitches he mentioned.
