So Enslaved, this game should have been marketed better, it’s good. It’s easily one of the most overlooked games of 2010. The story is a re-imagining of the ancient Chinese story, “Odyssey to the West”.
Fun fact, its what Dragonball’s story is also based off. Ninja Theory has done a great job of using facial animation and bringing out some emotion in these characters. The gameplay is basic on easy with some entertaining puzzles thrown in. The story is intriguing and gripping, prompting on-lookers to be glued to the couch with you . The fights aren’t typically hard and I found myself enjoying the puzzle and climbing elements much more than combat. The ending gets a little weird and takes a little interpretation to understand.
