Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
31 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is very much in the mould of the Uncharted series, so there’s an emphasis on spectacle and a focus on narrative. It’s also made with a broad audience in mind – just about anyone even half familiar with a good old fashioned controller can pick it up, play it and maybe even complete it, though it turns out that developer Ninja Theory’s efforts to reach them has been somewhat in vain as at, the time of writing, the sales haven’t exactly been...

8 January 2011
  • Excerpt: Strong Points: Mostly gorgeous graphics; engrossing narrative and characters Weak Points: Uneven gameplay; sometimes unstable framerate, especially when a lot of activity is on-screen; platforming is way too easy, and hampered by unevenly difficult combat Moral Warnings: Violence against robots takes the fore here; one of the characters, Trip, is consistently dressed provocatively; lots of profanity, most of it involving blasphemy
  • Pros: Mostly gorgeous graphics; engrossing narrative and characters
  • Cons: Uneven gameplay; sometimes unstable framerate, especially when a lot of activity is on-screen; platforming is way too easy, and hampered by unevenly difficult combat

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

True achievements
6 January 2011
  • Conclusion: It also seemed too close during some of the combat. 2) Enviromental traps on several of the levels will kill you instantly 3) Chase sequences on 2 levels are a pain, especially on hard difficulty 4) The 100% Tech Orb achievement is a real pain, even using a guide. Again, this quick review is just meant to assess this game in what I believe is a more realistic manner.

Test Enslaved Odyssey to the west

Generation NT
5 January 2011
  • Conclusion: Enslaved Odyssey to The west se révèle dans sa globalité très sympathique à prendre en main. Il est vrai qu'après un jeu tel que Castlevania, le titre de Namco Bandai peine à convaincre en terme de contenu et de réalisation technique. Mais pris à part, ce Enslaved peut délivrer un très bon moment de jeu. On apprécie son scénario parfaitement mis en scène, l'environnement et les décors mis en place et le caractère attachant des deux personnages.
  • Pros: Une vraie immersion, La mise en scène et les décors, Un jeu très bien rythmé
  • Cons: Gameplay répétitif, Manque de diversité des ennemis, Des phases de plateformes laborieuses par manque de visibilité

Excellent fantasy adventure can get violent and suggestive.

Common Sense Media

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is a violent game -- a third-person adventure that's placed in a brutal post-apocalyptic world. However, its protagonists are clearly good guys fighting against evil, and the enemies are machines and monsters instead of humans. That said, the hero, Monkey, uses weapons to slice, smash and impale creatures. Some of the finishing moves are particularly violent, such as jumping up and smashing down on the enemies.
