Just completed this game after picking it up n the cheap and absolutely loved every minute of playing it. The graphics are vibrant and bright with fantastic vistas and draw distances, the views from some of the taller structures are incredible and make the game an absolute plesure to play, the storyline is probably the best I have witnessed on a games console, both exciting and emotional, the characterisations are superb, interplay between characters as good as most movies. This had me hooked from beginning to end and I'm so glad I played it. But more importantly is really is great fun to play... here's hoping a sequel is in the pipeline... I cannot recommend highly enough...
I absolutely loved every minute of this game down to the story, graphics, character development, etc.
The combat is a bit shallow with your basic light and heavy attack, evade, block, etc, but it doesn't damage the game and works well for how basic it is.
The story is one of the most original and thought provoking ones I have experienced and I've gone through the game twice and earned the platinum trophy within 5-6 days and loved almost every minute of it! (With exception to collecting some of the tech orbs.)
I would recommend this game to most people but if you didn't like Uncharted then you may not like this as you can see the similarities quite clearly, although they are not similar enough to call Enslaved a rip-off.
Absolutely fantastic game which has been overlooked and hasn't got the attention that it truly deserves.
1st off i will say the last guy who said he downloaded on both xbox and PS3 and said xbox is better is totally wrong. the PS3 version clearly has better lighting,filtering effects and added touches the xbox version doesnt. the xbox version suffers from frame issues,lacks a flow the PS3 version does and u can tell the cut scenes r compressed video whereas the PS3 ones r in realtime. but back to the game its amazing,heavenly sword was a top game and this one is carrying on its good work. incredible recreation of humans like no other games,real emotion in their faces and expressions. u can tell its gonna b a amazing story and game taht drags u in. prob wont sell well thou and only to the people who know of it which is huge shame :(
