TheGamingLiberty.com: "Despite rave reviews, Ninja Theory's 'Enslaved: Odyssey to the West' will most certainly not get the sequel it deserves"
Great, now about that Heavenly Sword......
yeah, im glad they are stopping enslaved, wasn't it supposed to be a trilogy? i think the characters weren't that likable compared to the cast of heavenly sword, and the gameplay in general wasn't as good as heavenly swords, just hope they make a sequel to HS even if DMC will suck atleast they can use what they learned from making dmc on HS2, could be pretty dang awesome
too bad, improved sequel of Enslaved would be good :/
Why not? Worked with Assassin's Creed.
you want the people who did that to dante working on another game 10 years of classic dante capcom gives it to ninja theory and then lets change dante lets make the game run at 30 fps and not 60 fps
Thank goodness. Enslaved, in my honest opinion was terrible. It sold bad, it played bad, it was a bad game, regardless of the great acting done by Andy Serkis.
People always seem to commend this game for its heart and soul and the character interactions. While I agree that this was the games strength, the bottom line is that it wasn't that fun to play. Oh well, I won't really miss the franchise.
OMG! Finally I see some commnents more in line with mine. I honestly didnt see the appeal that some people have over Enslaved. The game was BAD! The story had potential but it wasnt nothing we havent seen in scifi moveis like the Matrix por example.
The only good parts of the game were when you weren't playing.
We get it. Your first post pointed out you don't like the game.
I liked this game! I enjoyed the gameplay, especially the parts where you needed to use the wakeboard-ish thingy :) Loved the story as well, loved how the relationship between them grew with the story progression. It was a great game in my opinion!
I thought it was a great game too.
The first NT related good news in a year :p . Nah half kidding , and my huge dislike for the the game aside, i'd prefer if it was actually successful ... so they could quickly step away from franchises i like , keeping everyone happy and separate .
Underrated game. Sad to see there will be no sequel. Ps3 owners need to buy more games.
What about 360 owners? Enslaved was available on that too :). Btw, I am a Ps3 owner and I own just over 50 games. I 'apologise' that I haven't bought more, but my social and working life take up most of my time :).
You need to buy more bubbles.
The gameplay was really boring
Damn, hopefully DMC does well so that they can get back to Enslaved 2. The first game had tons of potential. Still a very good game, but I enjoyed watching and listening to it more than playing it sometimes.
Deja vu? same thing with Heavenly Sword,Apparently going multiplatform didn't help them AND more importantly,same thing will happen with DMC.Don't they learn from their mistakes?
Heavenly Sword didnt do that bad, I think the sales were over 900k last time I checked and if they pushed for Heavenly Sword 2 it have hit a million quite easy.
Everyone hating on enslaved probably never even played it. One of the top games i've experienced this gen for story, atmosphere, and characters. The gameplay was simple and there was a decent upgrade system. There were orbs and masks you could collect which also added replay value. In my experiences this game was worth playing, and have no regrets buying it.
same old pompeous crap from people refusing to admit some might not enjoy every game , even with a demo around . Everyone got their own taste , and the game launched at the worst time possible wich did not help . If you did not like the game you did not play it ? If that's not pretentious , i dunno what is .
I thought the graphics were good, be that was about it. The enemies were corny, the game play wasn't the worst, but it wasn't praise worthy. and the repetitive nature of the game made it stale. I stopped playing it midway
Enslaved was good but quite disappointing. Heavenly Sword is the only game they've made that deserves a sequel!
Well, just goes to show you. You can't shine a turd.
The sequel could have been good :-/
How many articles are going to crush my dreams? Three so far and counting..... :/... I love Enslaved. :)
