MMGN: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Review

MMGN: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is one of those nice surprises you didn’t see coming. It appeared at the top of my review pile in a shinny case that I knew nothing about. Going in with a blank slate, the opening cinematic confused me. I had no idea what was going on, only to become more confused when the shirtless protagonist began jumping around a plummeting airship. At that point it seemed appropriate to consult Google, where I learnt that Enslaved is loosely based on “Journey to the West” - a Chinese novel dating back to 1590. However, it’s not all ancient history, rather a modern revival of a story most players won’t even realise exists. Even with such rich history, it would be easy to overlook Enslaved as it’s drowned out in a sea of readymade franchises and cash-in sequels, but then you would miss one of the highlights of 2010.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Journey to the west" is when they went and got Buddhism from India right? This game looked great, wonder if it really deserved a 8.4.

Looks suspiciously like Zeno Clash >.>

But apart from everything else, it's refreshing to see (or hear, rather) an impressive job on voice acting.
If you make a game, make sure it has decent voice acting!

The storyline is an interesting premise, Journey to the West is iconic in Chinese Culture. Glad it has a great review, I might be checking it out :)
