Entertainium's Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

Review by Jason Kwon

The ancient Chinese fable, Journey to the West, has been adapted into many forms of media, with the most notable being the Japanese manga/cartoon, Dragon Ball. UK developer Ninja Theory takes this famous Chinese story and uses it as the basis of the plot in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. While the core tenets of the tale are present (Monkey themed protagonist, staff, cloud), the game is set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic New York that serves as a really interesting premise. In addition, the gameplay feels so visceral and the visuals are so sharp that anyone looking for an immersive, story focused single player experience will have a grand time with Enslaved. (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.5/5
