ENSLAVED Odyssey to the West Premium Edition

Steam Description

Follow a gripping, surprise-filled journey as two dissimilar characters form an uneasy partnership in order to survive through a perilous, post-apocalyptic America.

150 years in the future, war and destruction have left the world in ruins with few humans remaining and nature having reclaimed the world. Mysterious slave ships harvest the dwindling population and take them out west, never to return.

Trip, a technologically savvy young woman has been imprisoned by a slave ship but manages to escape using her mental prowess. Monkey, a strong, brutish loner and fellow prisoner also gets free by virtue of his raw power and brawn. Trip quickly realizes that Monkey is her ticket to freedom and is her only hope to survive her perilous journey back home. She hacks a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together. If she dies, he dies and her journey has now become his. ENSLAVED centers on the complex relationship between the two main characters. Players take on the role of Monkey, utilizing a mix of combat, strategy and environmental traversal to ensure he and Trip survive the threats and obstacles that stand in the way of their freedom.

ENSLAVED Odyssey to the West Premium Edition - Review

This is a game that's full of action, and although I've seen a few reviews saying that the parkour and fights can become repetitive and boring, I disagree. I think if the game had been longer, then it may have become repetitive, but for me it was just right. The parkour elements get more difficult in different areas as you progress, with you having to time your moves right, and there's enough variety of enemy and fighting options that it kept me entertained throughout.

There's a few places in the game where you get to use your Cloud. It's some form of hover board, and it's a lot of fun zooming around on it!

The story is decent and kept me gripped throughout. The cut-scenes are awesome, and the voice acting is on point. Some of the conversations, particularly later in the game, are full of humour, and I absolutely loved the main characters! I also thought the settings were very impressive and looked fantastic.

The camera settings reminded me of some older Playstation games, which I actually liked and thought it added even more charm to the game. The only reason I put it as a con above is because it was particularly annoying in one big battle, where it kept resetting, making me run everywhere except where I wanted and resulted in my death (death is never the player's fault :P).

I thoroughly enjoyed Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. With a great story, impressive environment and cut-scenes, and full of action and adventure, what's not to like?
