About Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

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.

Summary

Enslaved is sci-fi road adventure featuring a captivating story that spans the fears of a world gone crazy with technology. Despite some mediocre gameplay elements, this game is hard to put down, and you will want to play it all the way through to see how it ends.

We like

  • The brilliantly crafted story and dialogue
  • The lush mech landscapes draped in beautiful vegetation
  • The memorable characters, who are worthy of a feature film

We dislike

  • The clunky camera
  • The noticeable, albeit minor graphical flaws
  • The dull combat elements

See PSU's review on Metacritic & GameRankings

There are a few clichés in the video game world we think developers need to get over. First, we need to see stories not based around a post-apocalyptic climate. Second, we need to see games that possess a movie-like quality play like an actual videogame, as opposed to merely having us sitting there feeling like we aren’t in the driving seat. And third, we need to stop thinking that one day machines will rule our l...
