ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ Premium Edition (NA)
Third party DRM: SteamThis game requires a free Steam account to play.
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.

Pretty fun game with a great storyKalGoran | March 16, 2014 | See all KalGoran's reviews »
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
