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.
Was looking for a decent cheap game to pass the time and noticed this on sale. Had never heard of it before but it looked like it might be ok so I took a chance and bought it thinking it might end up in my 'why did I bother' game backlog. How wrong I was. First play-through took about 10 hours and I loved every minute. It's a linear third person action game with climbing, platforming and fairly simple puzzle elements, gorgeous visuals, great characters and top notch voice acting. If you played and enjoyed Ninja Theory's DmC reboot then I highly recommend giving this a go. Quality stuff with no major bugs and only a few camera niggles letting it down. A surprisingly enjoyable and fun game overall.
This game is surprisingly obscure, I've had a very hard time even hearing about it and I stumbled on it by accident. The gameplay is pretty great and the story is also really neat along with the really great voice acting and amazing character interactions although I would advise using a controller seeing as the mouse camera controls are extremely wonky currently, but otherwise it is an underrated gem.
