"The Platforming is linear to the point of being prohibitive." That's all I needed to hear. The only thing about Enslaved that had me interested from the beginning was the chance to really explore this massive apocalypse/nature re-imagining, and I suspected from gameplay videos that it wasn't likely that was going to happen. Then Yahtzee, who I know has a love for exploration given his previous statements, hits the final nail in the coffin. No Enslaved, I'm not going to buy you. I'm not going to rent you. Thank you, Yahtzee.
I've been looking forward to this all week, and now I fell ... a bit underwhelmed actualy.
I must admit that the review went pretty much the way I expected but the uncharacteristicly small number of curses, jokes at the game's expence, and general "Laugh My Ass Off" moments left me feeling a bit shorted. To me this seemed like he just kind of went through it just for the sake of getting it done.
It's hard to tell a good game from a bad one with Yahtzee... I understand, that its not the goal in these ranting reviews, but maybe some kind of shitometer would be appropriate to tell is the game worth buying or not? For instance other reviews of C:LoS made me quite confident i wanna play it. And watching Yahtzee's episode about it i can really tell no difference in the attitude in comparison to this one.
