Enslaved: Odyssey to the West may be a cult classic now, but it's also a fascinating predecessor to the popular cinematic games of today.

This game deserves a full remake. Good game but could be so much more on modern hardware.

Yea i actually enjoyed the game and i never understood why the game got so much hate.

TeamIcoFan20d ago

It's because Enslaved kept (stupidly) getting compared to Uncharted 2's graphics at the time.
Xbox fanboys were propping it up as the "Uncharted 2 killer!", so much like how the first Killzone got screwed by being dubbed the "Halo killer", Enslaved suffered the same fate.

You're relying on a ridiculously slim minority to prop up that narrative.

I played through it beat it good game... I don't ever recall ANYONE saying the game was an "Uncharted Killer"... Ever... Good for what it was though.

Ninja Theory's ability not matching their ego.

And their ego is enormous.

Low scores and some hate probably due to it having excessive screen tearing and framerate drops galore. Could have been a fun, interesting and playable game if it weren't for those technical issues that annoyed me to the point of not wanting to play it any further.

This game got hate?

I remember people loving it when it was released one month before Castlevania: Lords of Shadow.

Because it came after Heavenly Sword which was exclusive, so as it happens sometimes when a studio stops making exclusive, people expect too much. Also maybe because it used UE3 and has this distinctive UE3 look (though way more colorful than the average UE game back then...) that was also popular to diss back then.

I actually disliked the game. The combat was clunky. The story was cumbersome. But, I really liked the potential that was there and the setting itself. But, I don't think it was hated so much as just considered more like Days Gone, a mediocre new IP but something that could potentially get better with a sequel.

I bought it on PC after playing the demo on xbox 360 a longgg time ago. Still haven't played it but was actually looking up stuff on it last week. This is a sign that it is time to install it. haha

I played the pc version in 1080p 120 fps. Looks and plays really great. Supposedly you can get the game to run in 4k if you tinker a little in the .ini file, but it didn't work for me =(

It's a great game man! Try it out!

Pretty short too which is good cause you can kinda plow through it. The story is solid 👌

Played the game and it was solid but also not all that memorable to be honest. I beat the game and don’t remember much about it. So kind of forgettable. Combat was pretty clunky due to bad frame rate, something we saw a lot of during ps3/360 generation unfortunately.
