Summary: PROS: This game has drop-dead gorgeous post-apocalyptic environment with stunningly written storyline and characters. Watching their development and interaction with each other is a wonderful thing to behold. Andy Serkis is in it. Snarky commentary and genre-savvy snide remarks abound.
Summary: Enslaved odyssey to the west is an action adventure game. As the main protagonist of the game, you are a person enslaved by the slavers with an unknown name. You call your self "monkey" not much of the story is unveiled until you reach close to the end of the game.
Summary: I can't argue that the price may fit experience so I can't complain about putting some money down. If you're really picky on how to invest your money in games, perhaps this might help you decide whether to get this or not. Story: Fairly transparent but sweet (well paced) love story.

Summary: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is an action adventure game from developer Team Ninja that attempts to re-imagine the ancient Chinese story Journey to the West with a bit of future apocalyptica flare. You follow the story of a young tech girl named Trip and a battle-hardened vagabond named Monkey.
Summary: When I first saw the trailer for this game, I was blown away. it looked to have great graphics, interesting story, and amazing maps. I got this game and was eager to play it. however my intial excitement wore off quickly.
Summary: After hearing some raves from other gamers, I decided to pick this game up since it was on sale. My first impression of the game is: awkward controls and movement. You will get used to the battles and movement mechanics, but one thing that bothered me was the QTEs.
Summary: I'll start off by saying I loved Heavenly Sword. The story was good, all the characters were interesting, the fighting mechanic was different and the sixaxis moments gave it variety. I didn't mind that it was a short game because there was a lot of content packed in that time-frame.
Excerpt: In many respects, Enslaved comes to embody the best and worst of what gaming has so far had to offer during the HD generation. The game's beautiful, elaborately designed jungle vistas are testament to what can be achieved with artistic vision and effort, whilst there's something distinctly Hollywood...

Pros: Appealing and attractive game world; Monkey and Trip are great characters; high - production feel
Cons: Shallow platforming; run of the mill combat; clumsy controls; slight technical troubles
Enslaved is mediocre, but it's a bit of fun for a few hours.

Excerpt: Enslaved: Odyssey To The West is a good gaming experience, but when you look at it deeply. It's a pretty mediocre game. It starts off with an Uncharted style jumping about, but a lot less fluent and with bad camera angles. I may have enjoyed it more with good camera angles.
Pros: Fun for a few hours, good visuals .
Cons: Mediocre gameplay, bad camera angles and non fluid jumping .
