Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

E3 2010: Enslaved E3 screenshots uncovered
Monkey business in new shots

Screens of Enslaved: Odyssey to the West have been released and they look extremely good.

Ninja Theory are following up Heavenly Sword with a multi-platform release of Enslaved, an adaptation of the classic Chinese novel Journey to the West.

Ninja Theory have made no secret that their PS3 exclusive title Heavenly Sword made them no money, let's hope this multi-platform release does.

One thing is for sure, it looks impressive.

Looks mostly good, pretty but looks a bit generic, i hope they have some good stuff going on under the bonnet.

Heavenly Sword looked nice, quality voice work too but the game was boring, no wonder it didn't sell very well.

Uncharted 2 the "pinnacle of its genre"

Ninja Theory co-founder Tameem Antoniades has told Eurogamer that Uncharted 2: Among Thieves can already be considered the "pinnacle" of its genre.

The problem being that Antoniades' new game Enslaved - with its motion-captured performances and Hollywood blockbuster approach - treads on very similar boards to Naughty Dog's masterpiece.

"It's never good to be compared with something that's already the pinnacle of its genre," blurted Antoniades at Develop last week. "It makes you slightly uneasy."

"I'm okay with people comparing it to Uncharted [2] because it's in the same genre. But, bloody hell, that's a lot to live up to."

Despite his praise, Antoniades doesn't believe that cinematic games such as Uncharted and Heavy Rain have yet mastered their craft.

"I'm not going to single out Uncharted [2], but the best games out there in storytelling still fall short of the nuances of films," he declared.

"When we're doing Enslaved and the story and the character and everything we're not looking at other games, we're looking at movies and achieving that level of cinematic performance.

"We've got a good shot at delivering a strong story where the talent behind it actually matters," he added.

That talent hasn't come cheap. Ninja Theory has ensnared none other than Alex Garland (The Beach, 28 Weeks Later, Sunshine) to co-write the game, and rubber-faced actor Andy Serkis (Gollum, King Kong, Ian Dury) to star in and direct motion-capture.

Those are bigger names than Uncharted 2: Among Thieves'. Will the critics be more severe because of them?

"I've never really thought about that, to be honest," Antoniades responded, nervously.

Enslaved will be released in October on PS3 and Xbox 360.
