Pretty fun game with a great story

Enslaved is a game where the action takes a back seat to the story. It's got pretty fun combat and platforming, but without the enjoyable story and really good voice acting and facial capture for the two main characters (the playable character, Monkey, is performed by Andy Serkis, best known for his role as Gollum) in one of the most mysterious, interesting, and beautiful post-apocalyptic worlds I've seen in gaming.

Enslaved uses the eastern Monkey King tales as character setting. The main character you play, Monkey, are forced to have a circlet stuck on his head by Trip and you cannot get too far away from her or you will die and if she dies you will die as well so it is your job to listen to her and get the job done. Gameplay is similar to any kind of action adventure games with the hack and slash elements similar to Darksiders series. As the story progress you will be able to upgrade Monkey with new skills and upgrades. The world itself is beautiful to explore but it is sometimes plagued with bad camera and horrible control but that didn't limit the game to be great. Definitely a must try for all action adventure fans.

If you are old enough to remember Monkey! (magic) this game will bring all the memories of the story of monkey and tripitaka on their journey to the west back (albeit with a modern twist). The voice acting is superb and helps draw you in to the relationship of the two main characters. The gameplay is good fun, it won't tax your brain much but is enjoyable 8/10 all up and it was a shame that this didn't sell as much as it should have when originally released
