ASG Gaming Review: Enslaved. Did Ninja Theory create the multi-platform game that would have them known as a "household name" amongst most gamers, whether it be Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 owners?
What some "reviewers" say to get attention... I do agree with the score, however.
Digital Foundry: "Gameplay-wise, the game holds your hand a little too much, but this came as something of a relief for Digital Foundry after most of the week was spent grappling with the sometimes-sadistic Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. Both of these games operate in territory where Uncharted 2 is the undisputed master, and while both have much to offer, Naughty Dog's epic is still a cut above the new challengers. In the case of Enslaved, character animation and interaction with the scenery isn't as seamless as it is in Uncharted 2, and the superb graphics are sometimes marred by some obviously low-resolution textures." -> http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
you have to admit, with a headline that contains 360 and uncharted in the same line, its bound to get 1020 degrees in a few minutes (who knew it was a review, a nt theory game.lol. this forum is going to rip this review apart). i expect nonsense comments like 1000 game awards. story, graphics and gameplay fused together to make the most more deepest game evah. anyway, its not a risky review, dont expect too many uc references. i feel bad for the site though, its going break soon .(site hits!!!!!!) nice.
Seriously, whats with people comparing U2 and Enslaved? Sorry, but Uncharted 2 is in its own league.
Just buy a PS3. Buy Uncharted 1 and 2 and VUOALAA!
not even close
So much for Ninja Theory's comments about Naughty Dog overdoing the animations.
just like Quantum Theory is Gears for PS3 gamers /s stupid article is stupid
*remembers walking with Nathan through the snow" "remembers scene at the beach bar" No, not even close...
Of course they compare it to Uncharted 2, it's one of the best games of this generation.
I laughed to the point my sides started hurting. Why would they compare this to Uncharted 2...why?
Don't ever mention Uncharted 2 in the same sentence as Enslaved.
They are not alike at all!!
You just did. /slaps Troll_Police
They are not in the same level.so I call this pure bs. the game is average deal with it.
You should never mention Uncharted 2 in the same sentence as Xbox 360.
Do you see now why people think you're a fanboy. You guys take hobbies like gaming to a whole new level of embarrassing retardation.
Retardation is a disease
. In my opinion... No.
How could it be? They're even of different genres!!
to get hits
Don't disrespect Uncharted like that.
Hell no. Enslaved is like a slightly more realistic Jak & Daxter for 360 gamers, except not as good.
this game simply cant even be called anything in the realm of Uncharted 2, Its a good game but it simply cant stand the up to the top tier product of Uncharted franchise. LOL!!! they wish it was.
this is as Uncharted 2 like as it gets, and im not saying is close by any means but is okish
I think it is perfectly the same as Uncharted. The Shoothing-sequences are so similar ... wait ... is there cover-based-third-person-shoot ing in Enslaved at all? Not that it is an important part of Uncharted. Just saying... Well certainly they share a similar color-palette instead of being all brownish/greyish but that's about it, isn't it? As far as i remember Uncharted also came without the clipping issues and (at times) rough character animations. Don't get me wrong. Enslaved is great, but Uncharted-great? Yeah... Well... No!
I gave you a disagree before reading your second sentence. XD Have a bubble. ^_^
ok yes it isnt THAT good, but it as good as 360 are gonna form that type of game
enslaved is as just a good a game as uc2, and personally I like it better than uc2. Uc2 is a good game but I don't like it or see what's so special about it. Enslaved, to me, has way better face animations too. Gears is a better 3rd person shooter for me than uc2. Enslaved isn't a shooter so really it's all down to preference I've never seen so many fanboys on one site ever. Sad. Not everyone thinks uc2 sets a benchmark for tps, and, quite frankly it doesn't.
Oh you with your stealth trolling.
But he can haz opinionz no?
I don't like uc2 and think enslaved is better. So what? It's my opinion. The article presented so I replied. I'll think what the hell I want and I don't have to agree with you or anyone else. Get over yourself and your uc2 passion
@CantHaveOpinionsHere You're painfully obvious: You have a username saying that we cannot have opinions here [at N4G], then you proceed to post your opinion about how Enslaved has superior animations and is generally more enjoyable than U2. After all the disagrees you know you will get, you will inevitably say "wow omg lolz so many disagreez cant have n0 opinionz hear lol!".
You can like the game better, but to say it has better animations, especially facial animations, is pretty hilarious. That's not an opinion, it's an indication that you haven't actually played UC2.
But never mention Gears' clunky and slow controls. I call BS on you seeing as how Uncharted's controls are the smoothest and most seamless you can get from any 3rd person shooter.
generic peanut butter is as just a good as Reeses, and personally I like it better than Reeses. Reeses is good peanut butter but I don't like it or see what's so special about it. generic peanut butter, to me, has way better nut chunks, too.
lmao at you, i own both uncharted 2 and enslaved, in no way is enslaved better than ucharted 2. better face animations? what drugs you on, the facial animations arnt even as good as heavenly sword. go play gears 2 then if its so much better, not many people online is there, i was on it last night and it took an age to find players.
Gears 2 online died off awhile ago ....now i only use it for horde with friends........ U2 MP still going strong though.....
Everyone can have opinions but that doesn't mean we have to agree with them, so stop playing the victim and quite frankly your opinion reeks, IMO
I totally agree with your comment. Almost everyone who commented on here immediattely just comments with an answer like "no". All I was trying to convey with my review was to compare it with a game that it has been compared to many times already, and shares many similarities. I'm not saying it's a better game...... If you can read, you'll see that all I'm questioning is if Enslaved gives xbox 360 owners, who have never experienced Uncharted 2, an experience similar to uc2......which, if you actually read the review, you would know that while it makes attempts, it actually falls quite short, but it's still a great game none the less.......I'm not trying to "hurt" anyones feelings, but some people take this stuff wayyyyyy too personal.....it's just a review, a little different than most, but why would people want to just read the same review over and over.....take it for what it is, people, and if you don't like it...you won't hurt my feelings......and on that note......I love N4G.....but this fanboy stuff has got to end.
LOL As if you didn't think of that headline to fuel the very fanboyism you claim has to end. You are part of the problem. Enslaved is nowhere close to Uncharted 1 or 2... in any way. You wanted to imply that it does to get hits, so stfu.
You can have opinions here, but try to base them in reality. Your opinion is not based in reality. Enslaved doesn't have any animations that are better than Uncharted 1 or 2, facial animations included. I enjoyed Enslaved, but let's keep it real. I'd give it a slightly higher score than this review (8), but again... let's keep it real. You are the fanboy.
That is a perfect comparison. It does feel more like Jax and Daxter than Uncharted. But in my opinion Jax and Daxter had more personality and was a lot better. Off topic. Here's hoping for Jak 4 or Jak and Daxter collection with Jax X Combat racing included
and if that is the 360 Uncharted 2, my oh my those who dont own a PS3 are missing ouit big time lol
begins really reviewing with the sentence "What makes Enslaved so fun is the gameplay," then proceeds to spend 2-3 paragraphs talking about story/characters. in other words, MORE bad writing submitted for our reading pleasure on n4g. smh
I just dnt like the combat. It is boring just like HS...well not boring, but something about it is just lacking in fun :s It games like God of War, DMC and Bayonetta the combat just seems so fluid and fun and I'm not sure why but NT has again failed to nail this gameplay aspect. Enslaved is just another game, but please do not fcuk up DMC!
At least in terms story telling and cinematic feel. Enslaved doesn't have the production value, the polish of UC2, they're on different levels Still playing through Enslaved and currently missing banter between characters that occurs while exploring in UC. The story feels disjointed if the only conversing occurs during cut-scenes. Still enjoying the game though. I'd say it is the only multiplat that is reminiscent of UC but again not on the same level.
lol at that title... gatta love n4g for the great laughs..
I tried Ensalved demo and have to say it's really not as good as Uncharted (1 or 2) gamplay wise. Melee combat is a big part in Ensalved, but it just wasn't that exciting in the demo. Maybe someone who has both can do a better comparison.
"an Uncharted 2 experience for 360 gamers?" 7.75 / 10
lol only on n4g!
just ridiculas i don't have an issue if it was, its when you ask a stupid question at the end with a score like that wow, they prob explain its not but still
OMG not even close, even their 3 years old Heavenly Sword can give Enslaved a run for its money .
Enslaved is clearly inspired by Uncharted with a touch of ICO, but it's not at the same sky-high level of quality of those games. This doesn't make Enslaved a bad game, though. I really enjoyed it.
mehhh i have Uncharted 2 and sucks, just have graphics nothing more, just a ripoff of Tomb Raider
I wish Tomb Raider could rip-off Uncharted...that would save the series, for sure.
Experience yea, but not uncharted.
C'mon guys, the games have some similarities and if you've tried both of them you know it. Dynamic camera, the whole movie feeling...Enslaved clearly drinks from the Uncharted 2 fountain. I found the demo quite fun, actually.
finished this the other day and i hate to say it but IMO enslaved was better than uncharted 2, and uncharted 2 was very good
