finished it on PS3 several times already. after seeing its mindblowing ending, i definitely want more of this, and i have a feeling that the sequel will be more awesome..

Wow, it's been nearly 3 years since I played this game. They must have learnt from all their mistakes now. I can't wait to play LoS2. Loved Gabriel becoming Dracula!

I'd love to see these artists let loose on a decent adventure game. I found myself playing this tedious and horribly linear button masher purely to see the next gorgeous environment, which is not the ideal motivation.

Also, it had the worst camera in the history of video games.

Recently decided to pick it up again, had been sitting in my backlog for almost three years. A great game, but yes....the camera can be a bitch.

You don't want to go there, if this is the 'worst' the others will make you piss your pants in fear.

I think that's a bit harsh. It starts out as a button masher because you have no combos, equipment and light/dark abilities. After you gain more of these things, the game becomes a real hack n slash.

This I agree with. You couldn't freely move the camera and they didn't learn from God of War how still-cams are done well.

Totally Agree about this. The game looks good very good but the camera... can't find the words to describe how i feel bad... But hope we're not going to have the same thing with the coming port of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. and yes it's coming to steam... just wait for the official announcement.

and they seem to have fixed the horrible camera angles. That's the only complaint I had about the console version of this game. The graphics looks so crisp. enjoy you PC gamers.

Good riddance that LoS2 wont have shitty still-camera anymore, its the worse style you can go with in action adventure games plain simple.

I think I read that if you dont move the character the camera will pan out until you either move the camera manually or move the character.

Sure still-cameras are good for scale and environmental view thats great for sure, but during platforming it definitely can hinder your view completely.
From a combat view then its a mix bag, I personally dont like it, but it definitely give you a bigger view of the ground on where the enemies are so it has its advantages and disadvantages.

What? Did I miss something? Where you heard that?

I liked Enslaved very much, didnt get to finish it tough. Was very underrated IMO

Oh and yeah, the camera was the biggest negative about castlevania.

On some locations the fixed camera in combat was so bad that I sometimes couldnt see the enemy, even if it was a warg!!

Yup, and some of the platforming were you had to jump from a ledge.

About the game


What's up?

    Moonwalker @KORNdog: Speaking of Spiders, I finished Technomancer yesterday. Fun game but dragged down by WAY too much backtracking and lack of different locations. (54 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: I'm not far enough into the game yet but I heard the game world is very interesting and full of great quests with multiple choices. Those kinda things sound great to me. (56 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog i honestly think they'd do better making something on a smaller scale. like an isometric action RPG. that spiders (developer) could do with going that direction too. (1 Hour ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it just looks like a typical game from them to me. like they bit off more than they can chew and the results are just mediocrity across the board. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @KORNdog: the facial animations are bullshit yes, animations in general are passable, combat isn't nearly as bad as I expected though. The world so far has been great, very very nice indeed. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it still looks all kinda of garbage though. lol (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker tearing was horrible, not to mention loading times. Plus it really doesn't look too bad either. Trees and foliage swaying in the wind, nice lighting. Good job PB. course all the jank is still there :) (2 Hours ago)
