Flashback Review - Enslaved: Odyssey To The West - STFUandPLAY

Like a lot of games out nowadays, Enslaved takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. You play as Monkey, a muscle bound, acrobatic man who fights to survive in this harsh world. He must have screwed up along the way because the game begins with him restrained in a metal pod inside of a giant airship full of slaves. A young girl named Trip manages to free herself from her pod and during the mayhem that happens afterwards, Monkey also escapes. Trip and Monkey manage to leave the airship but as the name of the game implies, Trip makes Monkey her slave using a headband that controls people. If Monkey doesn’t listen to Trip’s orders, she can inflict pain or kill him using a device that controls the slave headband. The headband is also attuned to Trip’s heart beat so if she dies, Monkey dies too. Trip promises Monkey that if he can get her home, she will free him. (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PS3, Xbox 360)

I know people love to give Ninja Theory so much hate, but I absolutely love their games.
Enslaved is at the top of that list for me.

I rented this game and fell in love with it myself. Yeah it was a little simple..combat wasn't that hard but man the world and story was awesome. To me. I need to pick this up again for the cheap. Loved it. The ending was pretty perfect per the story.

Enslaved and Heavenly Sword are definite keepers in my gaming library! People are really missing out on Enslaved that havent played it. It received great reviews too. I loved the world, graphics, gameplay and the characters! Just a great game!!!

I kept playing this game and could not help but think, "this is like the spiritual successor to next gen Donkey Kong." Super fun game.
