Trip is anxious to escape so she can make her way back home, but she knows she can't do it alone. She has the brains, but not the brawn - you, as Monkey are her ticket to freedom. You soon become Enslaved by Trip - bonded together by a slave headband. If you stray, you will be paralyzed by excruciating pain. If your stay, your fate is in her hands. In both cases, your freedom is no longer your own...
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is game from the well established video game developer Ninja Theory, the guys that made Heavenly Sword. Unlike Heavenly Sword that was a PS3 exclusive, Enslaved is a multi-platform game.
You play as Monkey, a buffed up guy that jumps around like; well a monkey. At the beginning of the game you (Monkey) meet Trip, a chick that enslaves you in order to return home. Trip is a little bitchy in the beginning, but she grows on you. All in all, the story is fine (albeit a little predictable), voice acting is really good, along with overall feel of the game. Just like Heavenly Sword, Enslaved has no multi-player.
When it comes to gameplay, it's satisfying. Controls are easy to learn and most importantly, they make sense. My biggest problem are the enemies. There are no human enemies in the game, you're always fighting mechs which get annoying after a while. The game succeeds in changing the tempo, and it doesn't work all the time.
All in all, Enslaved is a good game, definitely worth playing.
Stuff I liked:
Great voice acting, Story sucks you in, Good controls, Good graphics, Convincing post-apocalyptic world,
Stuff I disliked:
Obvious twists, mechs get annoying after a while, there is some screen tearing and textures poping in.
