Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (PlayStation 3)

 

This is how the world will look after the war. The buildings still stand, but they are in a state of ruin. Walls, ceilings, and floors have crumbled away, and the healthy foliage that covers every surface gives the appearance of a thriving ecosystem,...

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

 

We take a look at one of the biggest sleeper hits of last year, but does it prove to be as good as rumored? Find out after the break!

All in all, Enslaved is one of the biggest sleeper hits in gaming for the past few years. If you enjoy a great singleplayer experience, then you owe it to yourself to pick up Enslaved today.

Great characters ; Gripping narrative ; Lush visuals ; Excellent pacing

Shallow combat ; Some frame rate issues

I had more than my fair share of reservations going into Enslaved. Ninja Theory’s previous effort, Heavenly Sword was a bit on the short side and didn’t do much to advance the genre. Still to this day though few can match the presentation and facial...

Enslaved: Pigsy's Perfect 10 DLC (PS3) Review

 

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West's portly hero Pigsy returns in his own downloadable adventure. We trim the fat and head straight to the pork to review the latest DLC for the series.

It was only two months ago that Enslaved: Odyssey to the West was thrust upon us from Ninja Theory and Namco Bandai. It was then we were introduced to our heroes Trip and Monkey who went on a journey in search of civilization amongst the mech ravaged...

Without becoming too deeply engaged in Chinese mythology Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, loosely tells the tale of Monkey, as it is known to the English speaking world, or Journey to the West in Chinese. The traditional tale is about the Buddhist monk...

Gamertell Review: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West for PS3, Xbox 360

 

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is a pleasant surprise. It's one of those games that you might overlook, because it wasn't heavily promoted and came out at a time when a lot of big name releases like Fallout: New Vegas, Dead Rising 2, Rock Band 3 and...

Interesting story, no install needed, gorgeous environments, simple controls, fairly easy to command the Trip NPC, multiple difficulty levels, lots of upgrades to acquire, good voice acting and comes with comic book. There are also occasional third...

It’s difficult to explore and look for orbs since Monkey can die if he wanders too far from Trip, you can’t lock-on to enemies, it’s short and sometimes its difficult to see the shimmering items Monkey can climb on. Subtitles are very difficult to read

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

 

A Post-Apocalyptic world that is very lush and beautiful at times has a hidden danger that threatens its survival. This beautiful yet dangerous world is what you must survive in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. This game is brought to you by Namco...

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

 

It's easy to overlook the technical problems of Enslaved, simply because everything else is so damn compelling. This is not a checklist of what makes a game great, but taken as a whole, it IS a great game.

Surviving the Aftermath

Incredible story, action, & visuals. Great fun

Slightly repetitive gameplay

The combat of Odyssey to the West is fairly typical of the genre. One button performs light attacks while another completes heavy attacks and a third executes a shield maneuver. Monkey's weapon also bolsters the ability to fire plasma projectiles at...

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review for the PS3

 

Freedom is not worth having if it does not include the freedom to make mistakes.

Compelling inspiration; Innovative characters and story; Gorgeous, original setting; Strong animations and voice-work

except for the beginning and end; Sparse checkpoint system and one-hit kills; Touchy controls
