ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ Premium Edition

Boring game, boring characters, boring level design, boring plot, boring gameplay, stupid ending.
Better get something like Castlevania or DMC4 instead of this. Here is a pretty accurate review of some of the fault in Enslaved: http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/2409-Enslaved-Odyssey-to-the-West

It's fine if you don't like this game of course, but I think the review you linked to isn't the best way to look at the game. Zero Punctuation is all about bashing and raging to get more readers, which is funny and all, but it rarely gives players a balanced view of a game.

First off, ZP is obviously hung up on the game not being a faithful portrayal of the novel Journey to the West. Which I never even knew the game was based on.

Also, there's a lot of people getting all politically correct about the so-called slavery issues in this game. IMO, there aren't any.

Many of the things ZP points out are indeed true, but most are very minor issues and annoyances that don't make the game "stupid" or "boring" as you put it.

The gameplay, art direction, characters and story are all well done imo. Yes, both the platforming and the combat are not very difficult. This game is not DMC4 or God of War. It's more comparable to Jack & Daxter and Ratchet & Clank, but slightly more mature. I think it achieves what it sets out to do well and I ranked the console version 8 out of 10 when I played it. The PC port I hear isn't perfect, but with some tweaking it should be playable just fine (with a gamepad probably).

Edit: Now I'm wondering why I'm even responding to a hater. I just wasted my time :(

You dont watch Zero Punctuation to see if you want a game. His job is pretty much to bash games.

I played the game on Xbox, maybe he doesn't say much good about the game but every flaw he points out is true.

Somehow i doubt you ever played the game. Otherwise you wouldn't call the story and the characters boring.

He doesn't have many nice things to say about RE6 either, Does that make you want to stop playing it now?

The game is amazing. Beat it twice on Ps3 and gonna do it again on PC (Once GMG gives a discount ;D ) OP needs to go get some EMOTION.

If you don't like it that's fine, but why make a thread about it? The gameplay is lacking a bit idd, but the story and the characters are pretty awesome imo. I had a great time with it.

This.

The game has some technical flaws, but story and interesting characters certainly aren't the problem. The game is VERY well written and acted, and the story turns out to be very touching.

It's totally worth going through, especially for $20.

people do not listen to this troll, Enslaved is better than Arkam Origins by a mile. for 49.99 you can buy two copies of Enslaved and still have more fun than AO

This is a good game and the ending is brillant.

You must be another Troll.
This game is amazing... Outstanding graphics, outstanding voice acting and a very artistic and touching storyline.

It's true, however, when it is said that the gameplay is quite simple, compared to Devil May Cry and the like. Well, since i care most for the art, that aspect did not push me back from playing it.

Also, i have it on a console. One of the "best games no one played", sadly :(

You're not supposed to take Zero Punctuation as a serious review... If you actually decide what games to buy based on Zero Punctuation then you've been doing it wrong.

He made a thread about it because some people who havent bought the game might be interested to see why some people dont like it...not sure if that ever crossed your mind...
