Om dette spil

Follow a gripping, surprise-filled journey as two dissimilar characters form an uneasy partnership in order to survive through a perilous, post-apocalyptic America.

150 years in the future, war and destruction have left the world in ruins with few humans remaining and nature having reclaimed the world. Mysterious slave ships harvest the dwindling population and take them out west, never to return.

Trip, a technologically savvy young woman has been imprisoned by a slave ship but manages to escape using her mental prowess. Monkey, a strong, brutish loner and fellow prisoner also gets free by virtue of his raw power and brawn. Trip quickly realizes that Monkey is her ticket to freedom and is her only hope to survive her perilous journey back home. She hacks a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together. If she dies, he dies and her journey has now become his. ENSLAVED centers on the complex relationship between the two main characters. Players take on the role of Monkey, utilizing a mix of combat, strategy and environmental traversal to ensure he and Trip survive the threats and obstacles that stand in the way of their freedom.

Terrific and wondrous plot! I loved it!, It began feeble, but as soon you get to the third chapter, it kicks off!. The synergy between the two main characters was immaculate!, and the end made me think about the precious things in life that we miss by don't taking care of them. A very colorful and creative game that i recommend to everyone!

But, it isn't a perfect game. It has some technical issues that you can fix using the Community guides. And the gameplay is constant enough to make you feel like you are doing the same thing every single minute.

Last but not least, Play it!; it is a Hidden Gem!

Even though the PC-Port is a little lackluster, the game itself is great. One of the best games I have played in 2016 (I've only come across the game recently).

If you tweak the Unreal Engine .ini file, you can play in modern resolution and the graphics are gorgeous even today.

Other pros:
- engaging storyline
- nice graphics and setting
- good music
- the 2 characters are well developed and very authentic
- the fights are fun and the gameplay is overall satisfying

Cons:
- the graphics on the PC need ini tweakage before they look acceptable
- gameplay might be a bit repetitive
- difficulty might be too easy for some (the plattforming parts are impossible to fail)

Overall I strongly recommend the game. Well worth the money and a beautiful gem that is probably underrated.

I really enjoyed the plot, the world, nice characters and really good, often funny (especially after Pigsy appeared: Hey, Monkey, do you know what an Ice cream is? -No -Well because you seem to have one stuck on your head.) dialogues. But gameplay. Oh my, it was boooring.

the game itself is ok. environment is awesome tho. linear hack n slash worth the grab under 5 i guess, i know its somewhat influenced by Journey To The West and Son Wukong or Son Goku or w/e you wanna prefer is the main character but the game only has the money and the pig and rest is irrelevant. woulda been cooler if it was roughly based on the actual story whether its in the future or not.
6.5/10 overall. def not bad. but not great.

Enjoyed this game for the most part. Good story except for a few parts with the WTF moment. Only other issue is controls can ♥♥♥♥ you off from time to time. I would give it a solid 7/10 and feel its a good game to grab on the cheap for a play through.

so..its really hard to rate this game.

it is probably the most epic in scope and story that i have seen in years before and of recent.
Picking up where Prince of Persia began to stumble, and birthing a fight system that stares deeply into the eyes of God of War and Beyond Good and Evil, it would seem like perfection. STUNNING envionments, multiple upgrades, multiple play styles, enviro-puzzles, cloud surfing, Mechs, a female protaganist that will make your pants feel too tight every second she is on the screen; it really is mind-blowing.

but then there was the camera.
all said, this is also of the more frustrating games i have played to date (and there have been some rough ones). almost ALL deaths will revolve around losing the camera, missing a strike in the combo system, and being butt-♥♥♥♥♥ due to not being able to face the opponent. the rest will probably invole the controls not responding at key moments for jumps/ bosses and causing rage-inducing retrys.

i mean the acting in the cut-scenes alone make this worth playing...
and it carries a DEEP cult feel a la Beyond Good and Evil...
this could have been my favorite game...
but its not.
if you have patience, try it out.

A touching story that is memorable and leads us to an afterthought while bearing in mind the addictive and clever game.

ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West consists of several simple elements, all well connected together, so that manages to maintain excellent pace and never bring the player to boredom. But the most important thing in the game is the story, in which the gameplay is just an attachment. Not only perfectly presented, rooted in the realities of interesting and filled with charismatic characters, but also thought-provoking. And this in video games is still a rarity.
    PROS:
  • Plot
  • Characters and their relationships (Pigsy rules!)
  • Post-apocalyptic climate
  • Facial animation
  • Consistent, specific artwork
  • Variety of gameplay
  • Keeps you in suspense until the very end
  • Must-see final (The whole is topped with heavily surprising ending, which every player should interpret in their own way.)

    CONS:
  • Many simplifications related to gameplay
  • Minor technical mistakes

When you finish this game, it feels like you have broken up with a girlfriend.

Overall it's a pretty good game. If you know the story of Journey To The West at all, (or Dragonball, which is probably what most people will compare it to) you will see the similarities very quickly.

The characters and plot are enjoyable, and the game design itself is beautiful.

I found that there were a lot of flaws though, and some really gave me problems during the game.

The biggest of these were the controls; the camera, though controllable through a lot of the game, becomes automatic for certain sequences in the game, usually important ones like boss battles. I found myself constantly battling the camera to see what i wanted to see, and ended up dying countless times because it swung around just when i had got it into place, and meant i couldn't see where the giant mech was charging at me.

This is exacerbated by the level design. Often the major battles end up being in circular arena-type areas, and when you get close to the edge, it automatically faces outwards, so you can't keep an eye on the boss while you're collecting plasma or health around the edge of the arena. Extremely frustrating.

Equally frustrating was the platforming, which i found rigid and fiddly. I don't know if it's down to the port, but i can't remember the number of times i was trying to vault a barrier, jump a gap on the cloud or jump between handholds at speed, and ended up watching as Monkey shook his head in refusal, did a roll instead, or just straight-up dove head first into the hole. There were a few more rage-quits than there needed to be, purely because of clunky controlls.

That being said, i played through first time on hard, and the chapters seemed to go from virtually impossible because of the crappy controls and bad camera, to surprisingly easy because of an easy layout and limited number of enemies; it seems like perhaps the difficulty levels weren't successfully executed.

In terms of plot, the overall story is compelling, but doesn't quite go deep enough. The ultimate antagonist (Pyramid) is really a non-entity until the very end of the game, you have no real understanding who they are or what they do, and no idea why anyone would even know what they were called or that they existed until basically 3/4 of the way through.

All of that said, overall, i would probably give this game a 6.5 in spite of the problems i was having. It really is beautiful to look at, and very atmospheric. It's also super satisfying to watch Monkey and his gigantic arms tear huge machines limb from limb. It has some really funny moments, and the central characters have good chemistry. It could perhaps do with an update to some of its mechanics, but i enjoyed it, and completing the highest difficulty is pretty satisfying after being killed So. Many. Times.

I'll probably play the DLCs and other difficulties in the future.

Enslaved: Odyseey to the West is a solid action game held up mostly by its characters and storytelling. In a distant post-apocalyptic future you play Monkey, who escapes from a slave ship only to be enslaved by a fellow escapee: Trip. From that point forward you're trying to keep her alive during various adventures. I can't really go into it any further than that without spoiling things, but suffice it to say the storytelling and character development is interesting, particularly during the first half of the game.

Gameplay-wise you're looking at a fairly standard action-platformer. Monkey jumps and climbs around some crazy - and beautifully colorful - environments. And over time he unlocks more spectacular methods of navigating terrain and taking out enemies. There is an element of collecting materials to upgrade and unlock abilities here, so there's a small amount of customization. That sadly doesn't do anything to prevent the combat from being very simplistic throughout. And even the spectacular boss battles are handled by fairly basic, eventually repetitive, means.

Enslaved is an older game, and it shows. The environmental design is beautiful and colorful, but the texturework is frequently hideous and there's not much detail to anything. It looks worse than a game released in 2010 should. Similarly, the audio is far from ideal. There is no separate voice volume slider, which often results in voiceovers being completely drowned out by sound effects. Subtitles are essential.

The game loses a little of its focus after the halfway point, but picks it up again shortly before the ending. It ends up being a game that's most-of-the-way to being excellent. Yet it falls flat in terms of execution a few too many times to get all the way there. Some sequences are very glitchy and the combat mechanics / enemy variety could've used some more attention, for example.

All DLC is included with this edition, which is a blessing. The character DLC is largely useless, because it only unlocks after playing the campaign through once, and you're really not going to play through it a second time. But Pigsy's Perfect 10 is an excellent example of how DLC can be done right. It takes the main game's formula, but puts a huge spin on the gameplay mechanics and delivers an excellent 2-3 hour linear stealth & sniping mini-campaign. It even serves as a nice self-contained prequel story ... that's best experienced after playing through the main campaign.

Conclusion / TL;DR
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is an excellent "experience". Gamers who enjoy interesting stories, strong characters and amazing environments can't go wrong. But those looking for strong action-platforming mechanics first and foremost will be let down.

Technical Droning
Requires some ini tweaks to render properly, specifically to fix a Shadow rendering bug and unlock the frame rate.
120Hz - Yes, with ini tweaks
Borderless Window - No
Graphics Options - Decent
Texture Quality - Poor
Gamepad vs Keyboard - Gamepad, the keyboard controls aren't very good
Audio Balance - Poor. Subtitles required

A fantastic and criminally underrated gem that deserves a spot in the collection of every adventure game fan. The combat is fun and varied, figuring out how to get from place to place poses a challenge, but isn’t frustrating, and the storyline is surprisingly deep, if not all that original.

If you enjoyed played games like Mario 64 or Banjo-Kazooie as a kid Enslaved will feel familiar but also fresh and unique. Doesn’t hurt that Tripp is hot as hell!

I did not know what I was getting into when I got the game. It was actually suprising. A port from the PS3, it is actually very well done. I only encountered two bugs during the 8 hour playthrough where my character froze in the classic cross pose and would not respond. I have yet to play the piggsy extra.

The game overall reminds me a little of Uncharted/Left Behind with the two characters talking with each other as you explore the old ruins with some very easy platforming and hand to hand combat thrown in for the action. I really should not call it platforming as you can never really fall to your death and only on a few levels are there moving cogs and stuff that can actually kill you but it is very fluid and well done. There is some stealth thrown in but I found it much easier to just kill eveyrthing. There is ussually a boss at the end of a level with some mid bosses half way through but they are fairy easy do defeat. The graphics are suprisingly good but if not to your liking you can always use some sweetFX to fancy them up a bit. There are some good community guides for helping tweek some of the more common graphic complaints.

The overall game is a little short. The story while good, leaves more questions than it does answers specifically with the setting. There are some funny bits of comedy thrown in the mix.

A good game if you want something fun and short.

I played this game primarily for the story, I heard it was interesting. Let me tell you I certainly wasn't dissapointed in the slightest on that front. My devotion to the story was so great that when i accidentally skipped a cutscene at the end of a chapter, I replayed the entire chapter to see the cutscene again. I also rewatched the epilogue a couple of times because philosophy was going through my head, and I wanted to make sure I didn't miss anything. Great story

The game was certainly limited in terms of controls, I had to open up the ini files to figure out some of the key bindings for the ol' mouse and keyboard. I recommend a controller, it would work better I think.

Combat is a little shallow, especially if you didn't look up some of the key Bindings, but it can be fun and challenging, and the bosses are good.

Its a good game with a great story that satisfied me, therefore I recommend it.

Nicely done, Story-rich Action Adventure. Great character acting and impressive, expressive facial animation. Eye tracking is quite good so no "Dead-eye" faces.
Beautiful environments and well worth the ride.

Update 3/11/16 - Just finished the game and WOW! great story. 20 hours to complete for me on easy to enjoy everything in the environments AND enjoy the action.

Where was this game and wasn't it in my life sooner ?!!

Third person puzzle-platformer with melee combat featuring a male protagonist in a wasteland who collects red orbs... What does that make me reminscent about?...

+Incredible story and a stellar ending
+Very likeable characters with excellent voice acting
+Awesome, unique environments
+Satisfying combat
+Funny dialogue
+Atmospheric audio
+Relationship between Monkey and Trip, within gameplay and out
+TIght, responsive controls

-The game tends to take control from the player to show the same kind of cutscene you've seen 100 times before
-Puzzles could be a little more challenging
-Graphics and lack of options

Overall, an underrated gem.

I haven't stayed up late to finish a game in a long time - E: OthW was a blast! Just the right mix for me of jumping, bashing, shooting, surfing, puzzles, and story. Haven't had this much fun since Beyond Good and Evil, which this game made me nostaligc for with the bo-staff fights, hovercrafts, and pig-styled characters. That said it's a completely different game and much darker story, but still enjoyable and fun to play.

The fight style can be tough, to the point of frustrated cursing at times, but it helps break the simple run through of the jump puzzles and co-op puzzles, which are thoughtful enough to add to the game but not mind breaking. The decoy feature with your partner is handy, even if you get frustrated with the constant "Monkey! Go fetch this!" "Monkey! I can't jump." "Monkey! Kill something!"

I also love the characters, Monkey in particular is great and Pigsy is hilarious. The graphics and detail really bring them to life. Love also the silly jumping / climbing mechanic whcih grows on you after awhile.

The only thing I wasn't happy with was the ending, which felt cut off after staying up to finish it through, but there's still extra Pigsy content to play and the journey is more satisfying than the destination.

This game is not that pricey, totally worth a few hours of your life. Buy it!

Don't know how I missed this when it first came out, but am very glad I caught it on sale in Steam. Throws you into teh action right out of the gate, and keeps going from there. If I had to complain about anything, the forced perspective changes are a little annoying, but also completely understandable. But all in all, while I haven't played it for long yet, it's already worth more than what I paid, and am excited to go back and play further!

- Wonderful scenery
- Gameplay is fun and various. Don't expect technical combat though.
- AMAZING characters
- At its time it was a new IP. Something rare for sure.
- Man, Pigsy's Dlc. Guys play it and you'll understand.

This game has its flaws no doubt. They're pretty easy to find for everyone, so I won't even mention them.
Enslaved is by far more than the sum of its single parts and at the end you'll be sad this wonderful adventure is already over.
Play it, love it.

Enslaved is one of my favorite games ever. I had no idea going in to the game that I would enjoy it so thoroughly. I played and beat it originally on the Xbox 360. I never got to play the expansions. Glad to see they're in the PC version. It is a very beautiful game, especially for the time,and even now. It pull's you into the world nicely. I fell for the characters and felt attached to them by the end. Trip (the female lead), is still IMO one of the prettiest game characters ive seen or played. At any rate, great writing for the characters. Loved the relationship between Monkey and Trip, even if it isn't groundbreaking or super complex. Good and interesting overall story. The levels are enjoyable through and through. I don't think I remember a level that I did not enjoy, or got bored/frustrated with. Great controls as well. I have been begging Ninja Theory for a sequel on Twitter for a loooong while now. Hehe. They are always nice and reply or comment back to me. Good people there. I do think there may be a sequel in the works, but am not certain. On my own Slug rating system I made up just now, id give it a 9.5 out of 10. Wonderful game, but there is of course always room for improvement.

Pros:
Great atmosphere
Good voice acting
Good character personalities
Decent platforming and combat

Cons:
Absolutely tacked on ending, like the last second they tried to throw in some moral dycotomy it didn't work at all.
Limited enemies and platforming variety (more below if curious)
Some graphical issues (may just be me, more below as well.)

Definitely worth a check, I'd say if it's on sale pick it up. Though I always wait for sales so I'd rarely recommend a full price purchase unless you really want the game and know you'll probably like it.

About the limited enemies and platforming elements. I felt they were both decently made but they both also get old somewhat quickly. There aren't many enemy types, mostly you'll fight the same 4 mechs so combat can grow pretty tedious. Also platforming always stagnates in my opinion, there's only so much you can do with it and the answers paths in this game aren't hard to figure out. Luckily the game switches between fighting and platforming at a decent pace to make both more palatable. Usually a game being short I consider a con since it kind of sucks paying money for something you burn through so easily but it almost helps this game since if it went on for much longer the combat/platforming would probably end up wearing on my patience as I grew more tired of them.

Graphical issues, overall the graphics are fine in my opinion. But the cutscenes had a wierd wave effect while the camera was panning that was pretty annoying, this could just be some setting on my computer I messed up I guess but it never really happened during actual gameplay. Also Tripps hair is like a bundle of wires, they clip with her face and such which I found pretty noticable. They're both very minor cons though.

Overview
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Premium Edition) deserved more attention, but maybe not as much as many lovers of this game think. Please keep in mind that it first came out for consoles in 2010, and I am now reviewing the game in early 2016. Enslaved is an emotional and exciting experience, but is not without its fair share of faults. In this review I'll go over Enslaved's presentation, mechanics, characters, and some final thoughts.

Presentation
I have a really hard time conveying how I feel about Enslaved's presentation. The textures are god awful, but the lighting is strikingly beautiful. Some animations make me want to vomit, while others are fluid and very entertaining. The only part of Enslaved's presentation that seems to be balanced is its soundtrack, which manages to be nothing more than decent. All in all Enslaved suffers from one overarching problem, which was the way in which it was ported. The performance is great and most peoples hardware should be able to run it, so that's not my complaint. The issue is that it feels utterly like a console game fitted poorly onto the PC platform. It did not evolve at all when jumping to PC, all of its console limitations came with it. Ninja Theory/whoever they hired to port Enslaved essentially just made it run on windows and work (somewhat) with mouse and keyboard. That's it. If you want a direct verdict on Enslaved's presentation, I'd say it's just passable, as long as you keep in mind you are playing a 6 year old game.

Mechanics/Gameplay
Enslaved is absolutely a mechanically driven game. Much like the presentation, the mechanics, and thus the gameplay, is a bit dodgy. To start off with the most egregious offense of the mechanics, it'd by far be the camera. It's just horrible. It will switch back between two points of focus without you wanting it to, push in far too close or pull out too far away, and simply never seems to be where anyone in their right mind when playing this game would want it to be. In contrast of this, the combat and its progression throughout Enslaved's run time is just straight up enjoyable. When fighting enemies you'll have an abundant array of attacks that makes combat exciting and suspenseful, which is good because that is what you spend most of your time in this game doing; beating up on your adversaries. However, the combat does have a downfall, which is that some of the special moves you can choose to purchase don't seem to be perform-able without a controller of some sort. The final thing to mention about the gameplay and mechanics is the platforming. This is sadly another aspect of Enslaved that goes into the disappointing bin. The platforming is very jerky, and even worse, entirely linear. Its only saving grace is that most of the entertaining animations I mentioned in the presentation section do happen while platforming around. Enslaved very obviously hoped to be a mechanical marvel with tense gameplay, but it stumbled and fell short. Just like Trip does actually, but without Monkey to get her on her feet. Wait, who are they? Well, meet the-

Characters
This may seem like a bit of an odd part of any game to write a bit for, as story would tend to be a more appropriate aspect of a game to focus on. Surprisingly though, it's the masterfully written characters that turn Enslaved's narrative into a device to progress their own development and personal appeal. The ONLY three characters in this game are Monkey (you), Tripitaka (I.E. Trip, a teenage girl with mad tech skills), and Pigsy. Pigsy. Pigsy is the best character in Enslaved, and that's all you need to know about him. The characters are the one thing in this game that I have no real criticism of, other than some of Monkey's choices (which you do not control) that don't always seem to always reflect his personality, and only seem to be there to unsuccessfully extend a certain narrative driven mechanic. I can't really say much more without spoiling parts of the game, so I'll leave off with this statement. When I finished Enslaved, I didn't miss the gameplay, the design, the story, or any other aspect- other than the wonderful, truly lovable- characters.

Final Thoughts
Enslaved is a 7-8 hour adventure that most gamers are likely to enjoy. If you want it, I'd advise getting Enslaved on sale, as it frequently does so at a $5 price tag. Summing up Enslaved in one sentence, I would say this; Enslaved is a compelling gaming experience plagued by many non-game-breaking flaws. That's why I'm recommending Enslaved, and can do so without much doubt in that choice.

Personal Rating: 7.5/10

P.S. While this review does not include any form of criticism of it, this version of Enslaved comes with the 2-3 hour DLC "Pigsy's Perfect Ten." I'd personally extend this piece of DLC the same score I gave the main game, a 7.5/10. You might want to check it out if you enjoyed Pigsy's character.

Enslaved: Odyseey to the West is a solid action game held up mostly by its characters and storytelling. In a distant post-apocalyptic future you play Monkey, who escapes from a slave ship only to be enslaved by a fellow escapee: Trip. From that point forward you're trying to keep her alive during various adventures. I can't really go into it any further than that without spoiling things, but suffice it to say the storytelling and character development is interesting, particularly during the first half of the game.

Gameplay-wise you're looking at a fairly standard action-platformer. Monkey jumps and climbs around some crazy - and beautifully colorful - environments. And over time he unlocks more spectacular methods of navigating terrain and taking out enemies. There is an element of collecting materials to upgrade and unlock abilities here, so there's a small amount of customization. That sadly doesn't do anything to prevent the combat from being very simplistic throughout. And even the spectacular boss battles are handled by fairly basic, eventually repetitive, means.

Enslaved is an older game, and it shows. The environmental design is beautiful and colorful, but the texturework is frequently hideous and there's not much detail to anything. It looks worse than a game released in 2010 should. Similarly, the audio is far from ideal. There is no separate voice volume slider, which often results in voiceovers being completely drowned out by sound effects. Subtitles are essential.

The game loses a little of its focus after the halfway point, but picks it up again shortly before the ending. It ends up being a game that's most-of-the-way to being excellent. Yet it falls flat in terms of execution a few too many times to get all the way there. Some sequences are very glitchy and the combat mechanics / enemy variety could've used some more attention, for example.

All DLC is included with this edition, which is a blessing. The character DLC is largely useless, because it only unlocks after playing the campaign through once, and you're really not going to play through it a second time. But Pigsy's Perfect 10 is an excellent example of how DLC can be done right. It takes the main game's formula, but puts a huge spin on the gameplay mechanics and delivers an excellent 2-3 hour linear stealth & sniping mini-campaign. It even serves as a nice self-contained prequel story ... that's best experienced after playing through the main campaign.

Conclusion / TL;DR
Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is an excellent "experience". Gamers who enjoy interesting stories, strong characters and amazing environments can't go wrong. But those looking for strong action-platforming mechanics first and foremost will be let down.

This game is awsome on so many lvls yet there is so much room for improvment

Whats awsome
1. Setting, It takes place in destroyed future where machines rule the world and evrything is left behind to slowly decay, I love theese apocalyptic games and this is rathere colorful too.
2. Character development, you can really see how characters change through the game.
3. Story, through game seems to very well written
4. I really liked pacing of game, it was not most games have it. Usually it is just Combat, and combat and combat what fills between combats.

What could be better ?
1. Camera, aghgahgahghhagh why do you this why cant i watch around freely.
2. Controls on climbing, but it is probably fault of camera, because you are not sure which way you would like to go.

Rating: Have you been ever so in love that columns behind you form a heart ?

I want to see more games do to the post-apocalyptic genre that ENSLAVED has done here. There's no cold, drab, desaturated colour-palette; instead, everything from the environments to the characters are beautifully vibrant. If there was a single word to describe this game it would have to be "lush".

There's not much to the story, there's almost no exposition, but that's okay. I enjoy how the very, very few characters interact with each other. The humour and insults exchanged throughout the dialogue are quirky at first, and there were a few words said that I wasn't expecting to hear from a game such as this, but I found it hilarious and strangely comforting. Maybe because I'd grown attached to what appears to be the only humans left in existence.

There are a number of issues, though. Firstly, the battle camera is horrendous, it makes fighting a lot more difficult than it needs to be as there is no lock-on camera. The field of view is so close to your character it's hard to tell when to block or evade an incoming attack. The battle system is also quite clunky, fighting numbers of enemies at once with melee attacks is sometimes frustrating and tactics such as countering and evading attacks aren't accurate. I found that maximising your ranged weapon's upgrades makes it a lot easier in order to manage groups of enemies from a distance.

The story also seemed to come to an abrupt end. I feel as though an additional one or two chapters would have improved how the last portion of the game unfolded but that's not to say it was a poor ending, it just seemed to be over sooner than I'd have liked. It's a shame too, because the ending raised more questions than had been answered; it was a huge contrast to what I'd previously experienced through my journey and not at all something that I expected to happen.

I also hugely appreciate that the optional collectibles throughout the map actually add to the significance of the story. It's not clear at first what meaning is behind them but it all comes together quite neatly in the end.

This game is a pleasant surprise. A sold platform/action game.

The graphics are nice and the environment is very pretty. The gameplay is nice (at least with a controller, can't say about keyboard and mouse). The combat could use a few more combos, but it's still solid. The voice acting is good, as is the music.

The only thing i complain about is the story. Don't get me wrong, the story in itself is not bad, although very predictable, but there's lack of lore and the ending doesn't really make much sense imo. Or at least didn't answer much of the questions i had, and left me with even more question.

Still the game is worth it's price.

8.5/10

This was one cool game for me, an experience I did not regret.
What I liked most is the story, characters and their interaction/relationship, the art direction as the world created was really cool.
Combat is good - Prince of Persia combined with some Batman.
On dislike side I would say the patforming stuff, due to being really really limited.
If you are looking for a cool story, a nice adventure, then this would be for you.

This game is BEAUTIFUL!! I don't mean the graphics (well, graphically it's beatiful as well), but the atmosphere, the design and the story - they are just BEAUTIFUL. The gameplay is like a lighter Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time with a bit too much climbing, but that's ok. The soundeffects, the music and especially the voice acting are awesome. The only problem this game has is the terrbile controls, the dumbass mouse and camera handling. And they are more frustrating in the Pigsy's Perfect 10 (it's a separate little story where you play as Pigsy - you can find it in the Extras menu).

The story seems a bit slow, yet it's not boring at all, not even for a sec (at least to me). The dialogs are well-written, they are funny, sad, touching - so there's everything. And the ending... Hard to not spoil it, so I just tell ya it's damn cool, I really like it.

I hate that with full of my heart when a game has bad or worse controls/camera, nevertheless the Enslaved is absolutely worth to play.

And one more thing: I don't quite think she did the right thing...
