UGO Review: Is Enslaved the Dark Horse of the Season?

UGO: "Your main character is named Monkey and he doesn't wear a shirt."

That was all I knew about Enslaved: Odyssey to the West about a week ago. But as I do before most review assignments I read up on the game from our previews section and learned that Enslaved is loosely based on the classic Chinese fable "Journey to the West," features the talented team from Ninja Theory (who previously created Heavenly Sword and who will be creating the next Devil May Cry), and Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) stars as the main character, Monkey -- Serkis also serves as a cut-scene director and lends his motion capture talents to the project. There, now you're all caught up as well. (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PS3, Xbox 360) B+/A+

Am I the only one who found the demo completely unappealing? The animations were terrible and it played like a cheap version of god of war.

Does not want.

I dont think Enslaved has much to do with GoW. Its combat is simple button mashing, its platform is UC inspired and its storytelling/presentation seem to be as strong as HS.

I agree with Raz...
...the saving grace for this game seems to be the story. I will rent this game eventually but cannot see purchasing it even though I love a good single player game.
