Demo Impressions: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

First and foremost, I would like to simply apologize to everyone for not posting up a video impressions for this week like I have in the past. I’m sure that you enjoy watching them just as much as I enjoy making them. Sadly, due to lack of recordable discs, my happy endeavors of recording myself gaming had to be skipped out on for this week. My apologies, again.

But, don’t worry, the impressions of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is still going to happen, but only through the act of reading. Now, if you will, please click with the left button of your mouse onto the “Read More” button to continue forward. Thank you and have a wonderfully pleasant afternoon.

Okay, so in my humblest opinion, I will just state that I enjoyed myself with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I felt that it was just great to look at and fun to be inside a world that was was so detailed and full of color. I couldn’t help but walk off the path and explore my surroundings, everything was visually great.  As soon as I ventured off, I became attacked by robots who had no chance of survival. Throw out a good combo with your staff and all will be well. The graphics here were really done well, high five to Ninja Theory in that department for pulling off such great visuals to look at. You nailed it in that category.

Enslaved felt like another Uncharted game in all honesty, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that is a bad thing because the Uncharted games are fun. Enslaved gave off that same fun vibe of roaming through the jungle with your companion or when climbing up the side of a big spaceship, bouncing around all nibbly bimbly from one object to another. The game was fast paced and had a good story which is always a plus when it can keep you entertained.

Just because I felt that the enemies in the demo were a tad bit easy, that doesn’t mean that as the story progresses, the bosses and enemies won’t become harder in difficulty. Overall, everything really meshed well together with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. I’m definitely excited to see what the final release has in store for us come October 5th as it makes its way to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. From the feel of it while playing the demo, I couldn’t help but want more time with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West.
