Enslaved: Some Of The Best Visuals We've Ever Seen?
Now, before you scoff, bear in mind we're talking about the developer that first presented us with a glimpse of what the PlayStation 3 was capable of way back in 2007...
Ninja Theory, the team behind one of the PS3's first great exclusives, Heavenly Sword, is currently hard at work on their new action/adventure title, Enslaved. The game has been in the headlines a lot lately, and it's primarily because the details that keep leaking out from the European designer are pretty darn impressive. And you know, we like it when we hear feedback from fellow journalists who have actually seen the game in action; take CVG's early analysis as an example. They say it's "as colorful as Mario, as detailed as Gears and as beautifully animated as Uncharted." ...um, all right. Now, bear in mind that the studio decided to go multiplatform after making "no money" on Heavenly Sword, and CVG's man made such bold statements after seeing Enslaved run on the Xbox 360. He says the platforming sequences "look straight out of Naughty Dog's game," and overall, "the set pieces we saw were absolutely of Uncharted's caliber." Considering this, if the actual mechanics can also live up to expectations, we should all be in for a very big treat. Cross your fingers!
We may have to hit up Ninja Theory to see if we can get our hands on an early build...it's looking too good to wait on.
