"Only like it for the story"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The story is cool (as it's a re-imaging of the Chinese story Journey to the West), and distracting enemies is great fun and blends in with the story very well, rather than being a ‘hey look at this cool thing you can do’.

The thing that makes this almost unplayable though is the camera and how it's constantly bobbing around like shaky cam in movies. I have to close my eyes just so they don't hurt sometimes. I'm constantly moving the right stick to try steady the camera.

The combat itself is very lame. Repeated hold square, then hit triangle twice then hold block and go again. There's really no other way to fight because there's no combos other than square, square, square, and triangle, triangle. You get such limited amount of ammo there's no point in shooting.

There's almost no point in dodging as it doesn't get you far. You might as well have just walked there. It would have been better if the dodge was left stick + block rather than left stick + jump, because sometimes he'll jump and sometimes he'll dodge.

Overall, it's not a BAD game. The story is what makes this game worth getting

"Unique!"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was really looking forward to playing this game after having played the awesome Heavenly Sword which had such a great story, so coming into this maybe I expected to much, dont get me wrong this game is great and so is the story.

The 1st half of this game starts off real good but once you pass half-way it starts to drop story wise like they dont know where they want to go with it. But at a cheap price this would be a must buy.

"Freestyle Fantasy Action!!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is quite enjoyable. The graphics are fantastic aswell as the story line and game play. One down side I found was the camera angles with many finishing attacks that go in slow-mo. Over-all this game will keep you interested throughout. The features are great! The characters are pretty cool apart from Pigsy whose just disturbing. Its an easy game to follow in ruite, killing robots grows on you during game play. Another great smash em up game with a small amount of tactic and accuracy techniques invloved.

Description

More than 150 years in the future, the world has transformed into an unrecognizable state where all that remains are a dwindling human population and merciless robots left over from wars long past. In Enslaved, players take on the role of Monkey, a strong and brutish loner, and his AI partner Trip, a technologically savvy but sheltered young woman from a peaceful community. Both become captured by a mysterious slave ship, which are rumored to harvest people and take them out west never to return. As they each attempt to escape, Trip realizes quickly that Monkey, with his raw strength and power, is the only hope she has of making the perilous journey back home. She hacks into a slave headband to enslave Monkey and link them together – if she dies, he dies. Her journey has now become his.

Players must make sure both Monkey and Trip work together as they skillfully navigate through the world and survive against the dangerous enemy obstacles that lie in wait. Monkey will deftly wield his trusty staff weapon to attack and defend against enemies, using a combination of melee attacks, blocks and counters. He will also be able to perform spectacular takedown moves, allowing him to rip an enemy apart piece by piece, take its weapon for his own use or destroy it in one final blow.

Features:

  • A CINEMATIC MASTERPIECE – Featuring dramatic cutscenes co-directed by Andy Serkis, (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) who also plays the lead role of Monkey, portraying critical events that drive the story of Monkey and Trip

STUNNING ENVIRONMENTS – Explore a beautiful, eerie world of war-ravaged cityscapes that have been reclaimed by nature and are fraught with danger at every turn

  • TACTICAL GAMEPLAY – Think on your feet! Survey the environment, work together with Trip and choose your path to battle through the perilous environmental and deadly enemy obstacles that await
  • ENGAGING STORYLINE – Play through an original story co-written by famed novelist and screenwriter, Alex Garland, (The Beach, 28 Days Later); Loosely inspired by the classic Chinese novel “Journey to the West,” experience the evolving relationship between Monkey and Trip through their plight for survival
  • DYNAMIC COMBAT SYSTEM – Attack and defend with agile prowess using a combination of melee attacks, blocks and intense takedowns which allow Monkey to overtake an enemy to steal its weapon for his own use, rip the enemy apart piece by piece or destroy it in one satisfying final blow.
