7.3 / 10Combined Score
At this point, nothing except for perhaps poor collision detection!
I know I am going to get flack for completely changing my views on this one, but hey I've been wrong before. Everything that people have thus far complained about, all of those things can be worked around, trust me. I rented the game when it first came out, and I quickly learned to hate it, yet, at the time I never thought my way through the game, I never accepted things like no 'during mission' saves and the extreme level of difficulty as mere challanges and not obstacles as most people think. I recently purchased the game new, for next to nothing and, although I still had to work hard to get past the Escorting Markus lvl., from that point on, the game seemed to get easier and easier. Simply by applying the right character to the appropriate mission, the game be...
fighting system,no saves,far to difficult, wants you to break your xbox
the game itself is very good but it is the fact that if you die you have to do the entire level again. Also this game is near impossible and i have been tempted to take it back. Only but this game if you have the patience and determination to complete it
Poor combat, no save points in levels (except few pre-boss places)
Similiar to previous views I have had to change my mind about this game.
Due to the hype before release i felt disappointed playing the first few levels but if you can get over the poor combat and lack of saves this game has a lot going for it. The graphics are some of the best yet on the xbox and although the levels are not long the fact that it takes many attempts to complete them makes them seem so.
Also the fact you can go back and play any level you have completed with another character and weapons adds to the replay value, plus once you complete it with the good side you can go back and complete it with the bad side with a different twist to the story.
If the gameplay was as good as say, Halo, then this game would be getting a score of 4.5
Be patient with this title and you will be rewarded.
Combat system, level design, bosses
In the interest of fairness, I feel the need to revise some of my opinions in my previous review. While most of my gripes still stand, as the game progresses they seem to matter less and less. Enclave has a "gotta beat this level or I'm gonna bust" quality that brings you back time after time. Although the combat system remains less than perfect, it places more of a premium on weapon and character choice than other multi-character games I've played. You find yourself thinking "I wonder if I can beat this level using character X with weapon Y" over and over again, just to try out the permutations. The significant differences in characters' abilities makes this a rewarding experience and rewards replay after replay.
For these reasons alone, I've upgraded my score to 4. This game is a definite keeper.
Enclave could have been a great arcade action/RPG fusion. Unfortunately...
No checkpoints on levels, poor combat-keep hittin the attack button and pray!!!
Like i said the graffix have had a lot of time spent on them and make the game look fantastic and makes you feel part of the world of Enclave, on the down side is the shitty combat and lack of checkpoints, in all honesty though i cannot put this game down but feel that when you have to keep starting the level from the beginning might begin to try other peoples pacience or at least the controller being slung across the floor on occasions!!!
