Summary: Not to many people knew about this game and it did not really make headlines, but this is a great sleeper game that may have slipped through the cracks. I really enjoyed the interactions between the characters and there were funny comments made throughout the game. There were also serious points. The graphics were better than average and the game play was smooth and played very much like Uncharted.
Summary: I love the graphics on this game, and the storyline is really fun to play. It's fairly simple to get the controls understood and to play, and the actual game is a lot of fun to work though. One part that's a little complex is a few of the camera angles make maneuvering weird and hard to do, but that's a minor thing. The game's post apocalyptic green areas are so gorgeous you'll want to go back through them again!
Summary: The images in the game are wonderful, The game play is easy and natural. I beat it on normal in about 15 hours with over 85% collected. The Mechs are cool and the Cloud Hover Board is tons of fun to just play around on. On the down side it's a short game with an easy to read Plot. Also there's only 3 characters, unless you count the Pyramid (bad guy) as the fourth. Over all a good 4 stars, I'll play it again.
A brief, yet beautiful and grasping post-apocalyptic adventure

Summary: This game takes place about 150 years in yet another post-apocalyptic future where apparently a nasty war occurred that decimated the human population to the point where they now only number in the thousands. Also left behind after the war are deadly mechs who scour what's left of the earth for any surviving humans, capture them as slaves, and send them west to a place simply known as Pyramid.
Summary: Enslaved is set in a post apocalyptic world many hundred years after a war wiped out our civilization. Monkey is a young man trapped on a slave ship, but when a girl named Trip escapes and the ship beings to crash Monkey gets out. To make a long story short both of them wakes up in ruins of New York, but Trip have secured Monkey with a headband which let her control him, with this she forces him to help her get home to her village, this is easier said than done as there...
Summary: When I first heard of this game on game informer I thought this was going to be another cheesy Japanese game. After playing the demo I knew I was wrong.This game does not have the best game mechanics but it is challenging. The graphics are awesome for the most part but a whole lot of bugs. I love using your partner in the game to out flank enemies. It kind of reminded me of Army of two. The best part of the game is the voice acting and the story line.
Excerpt: Enslaved is one of the most frustrating games I have played in quite some time. Not because it is a bad game, quite the contrary, it is one of the most engaging and interesting games to come out this year. What really bothered me about Enslaved were the consistent technical problems that I encountered, ranging from small and excusable to utterly distracting.
Summary: I had a few problems with this otherwise remarkable game and truly it is a fine game. Most people praise the story as being the strongest point but I say it's the characters. Far from cardboard, these characters are truly alive with emotions, all of which you can both see, thanks to great animation work, and hear, thanks to the fantastic voice acting. The world they inhabit is also quite beautiful, despite the rust and decay of this post apocalyptic setting.
Summary: Enslaved is a good game. The only fault I can find in this game are the endless long tutorials. It is like playing Sengoku Basara or Final Fantasy 13 (or any game that is an RPG) with the endless cut scenes about tutorials that you can't turn off that takes the player away from the immersion. I don't get why the tutorials are making a comeback in so many games. I just think of it as lazy developers and programmers who can't make a game without giving so much tutorials.
Summary: Please understand that I am writing this review as the game is selling for $20. I myself paid only $25 for it a few months ago, so I am basing the value on that price point. Story: 9/10 More inspired by, then based on the classic tale "Journey into the West", the writers had great source material to work with, and use it well. The tale centers around Trip and Monkey.
