I was very, very impressed by the DEMO! First day purchase for me! Great animation and fun characters!

Amazing, I know people will hate on it for how streamlined the gameplay can seem but this game is made to tell a great cinematic story, if they achieve this, I will except almost any compromise.

Anyways feedback thus far from the demo is positive but not to sound elitist this is probably because it's currently only on PSN, the PS3 audience are more susceptible to story driven games like U2, Heavy Rain and the like.

Lets see the responses when Enslaved hits xbox live.

In the demo you can notice that there is input lag for the movement controls. The combat controls are great though.
What worries me about this, is that OXM (official Xbox magazine) has already reported this in their hands-on preview some time ago. OXM also stated that they were hoping this would be solved by the time of release. But the game will be released october 8 in Europe. So, I'm affraid this cluncky movement controls will be in the final version as well.
Other than that, the demo was simply great. The facial animation is the best I have seen, and this together with great voice acting promises a well told story.

Pal, when it comes to cinematic gaming, noting tops mass effect, so yeah the xbox 360 audience will definitly like this.

Mass effect ? Ive played both on pc, and ME2 is nowhere near as cinematic as U2 and GoW3...

Im not trying to disrespect here but I just can't understand this mentality at all,I mean this are games and gameplay must come first above all else, in fact story comes last.

In my humble opinion of course.

@IRAIPT0IR
I'm the exact opposite. Horses for courses I guess.
I enjoy films a lot, books and when it comes to games, for racing titles etc yes gameplay rules but action/rpg/even shooters. Story for me is equally as important as gameplay.

I'm looking forward to this. The end of the demo was a nice point to end.

I thought so as well, right when Monkey finally is close to Trip on that airship before Trip launches the pod hehe.

I don't mind a nice story but if the gameplay sucks I'm not going to bother finishing it, no matter how snazzy the graphics or cutscenes are. If this is anything like Heavenly Sword I'm steering clear, and seeing as how the two main characters look exactly like Noriko and Bohan...
