GameShark - Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

GameShark - While movie-based games are often bemoaned, perhaps even worse are the titles that draw inspiration from literary classics.

Take, for example, Dante’s Inferno. The publisher managed to turn the spiritual epic into a mindless hack-n-slash, recasting the timid, middle-aged poet Dante as a testosterone-emanating barbarian, who spends his free time slaying innocents and knitting Biblical imagery – into his bare, muscle-bound chest, that is. Dante’s cross shoots lasers, the eighth circle of Hell is a combat mini-game challenge and at one point, you fight demons that spawn spiders from their nipples. Tasteful reimagining indeed. (Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, PS3, Xbox 360) B/A+
