  • Summary: Not every action game needs to be composed of larger than life action sequences or feature some world ending threat. In a game where the world has already ended, Ninja Theory has told a story that focuses on character.

Enslaved DLC: Pigsy's Perfect 10

The Armchair Empire
22 February 2011
  • Conclusion: perfect companion. In contrast to the lush greens of the first game, this one has a decidedly brown and rust tone to it. The graphics are amazing (and a good utilization of the Unreal engine) but the general tone of this DLC is different from the main event in a number of ways.

A Strong Story Sideswiped By Uneven Gameplay

Game Informer
1 October 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: What’s harder to endure, the apocalypse or uninteresting gameplay? Graphics: Often grand in scope, but the fine details are lacking. Monkey’s animations are amazing, but pixelated texturing often steals your eye Sound: If I hear Trip say “let me scan the area” one more time… Playability:...

UGO
1 October 2010
  • Excerpt: "Your main character is named Monkey and he doesn't wear a shirt." That was all I knew about Enslaved: Odyssey to the West about a week ago. But as I do before most review assignments I read up on the game from our previews section and learned that Enslaved is loosely based on the classic Chinese...
  • Pros: if you like platforming, shirtless heroes, and protecting an AI.

  • Summary: It's not often that a developer will go all out. Ninja Theory are definitely ones to do this, with Heavenly Sword paving the way for PS3 gaming showing off the impressive hardware and throwing in an enthralling story to boot. It was just a shame that it lacked in the gameplay department.
  • Pros: Fantastic script, Fluid platforming, The narrative is just superb
  • Cons: Annoying camera problems crop up, Precision of platforming can get annoying, It ends

OXCGN’s Enslaved Review: Odyssey To The West

OXCGN
19 November 2010
  • Conclusion: Enslaved: Odyssey To The West is one of those tough games to review. While playing through this platform/adventure game you can constantly see the idea that the developers, Ninja Theory , had behind their vision of an event or gameplay sequence. But sadly more often than not Enslaved lets you down.
