In Enslaved you take on the role of Monkey a strong, brutish loner who has been captured on a mysterious slave ship 150 years into the future. War and destruction have left the world in ruins and you are one of only a few humans left. On the slave ship you encounter Trip - a beautiful, tech-savvy young woman who is also at the mercy of her captors.
Trip is anxious to escape so she can make her way back home, but she knows she can't do it alone. She has the brains, but not the brawn - you, as Monkey are her ticket to freedom. You soon become Enslaved by Trip - bonded together by a slave headband. If you stray, you will be paralyzed by excruciating pain. If you stay, your fate is in her hands. In both cases, your freedom is no longer your own.
A cinematic masterpiece: Featuring dramatic cutscenes co-directed by Andy Serkis, (Lord of the Rings, King Kong) who also plays the lead role of Monkey, portraying critical events that drive the story of Monkey and Trip
Stunning environments: Explore a beautiful, eerie world of war-ravaged cityscapes that have been reclaimed by nature and are fraught with danger at every turn
Tactical gameplay: Think on your feet! Survey the environment, work together with Trip and choose your path to battle through the perilous environmental and deadly enemy obstacles that await
Engaging storyline: Play through an original story co-written by famed novelist and screenwriter, Alex Garland, (The Beach, 28 Days Later) - loosely inspired by the classic Chinese novel "Journey to the West," experience the evolving relationship between Monkey and Trip through their plight for survival
Dynamic combat system: Attack and defend with agile prowess using a combination of melee attacks, blocks and intense takedowns which allow Monkey to overtake an enemy to steal its weapon for his own use, rip the enemy apart piece by piece or destroy it in one satisfying final blow

Enslaved is a RPG game which is very rare and much in playing like Tomb Raider, I loved playing this game on PS3. with its Sci Fi out of our world theme. I ordered it online on Ozgameshop and received it in 1 week time (including holidays) in Victoria, Australia. I ordered it with other items so I get the shipping for free as well.

What would the old Japanese 'Monkey' show from the '80s be like if it was set in the future and the story and animation were by Andy Serkis? Well, you'd get the game Enslaved: Odyssey to the west. Of course you don't have to be a fan of the old show to enjoy this game. You play Monkey and must help Trip (like Tripitaka) reach her father. The intro is one of the best in any game as you escape a ship on it's way to crashing. The combat is fresh mixing up combos with finishers and even first person shooting. Your journey takes you across a ruined land where you meet some interesting characters along the way. Monkey even has a hover board that you can use to get around on, a nod to the old cloud. As you and Trip make your way across the land you must work together to overcome obstacles and enemies. This game may look a little childish but it can be tough. Ultimately this is 'irrepressible' fun!

Being a fan of the Monkey TV series I was keen to pick this up when it first came out. The story features that titular character as well as Trip and Pigsy makes an appearance later in this post apocalyptic spin on the tale. The story, acting and animation are great in this game and it's very pretty to look at. The gameplay itself though is very simple with easy combat mechanics and platforming that was impossible to fail at. Worth playing at the hardest difficulty straight up. Definitely recommend playing though especially for this cheaper price (I bought it at launch).

The story of this game is epic, as are the environments. The controls and gameplay mechanics not so much. Some components of movement, ledge hopping and cover are a little coarse. Haven't finished it yet, but the story unfolds nicely with a lot of emotion. Similar in gameplay style to Heavenly Sword but with more ledge hopping like the Uncharted series.
Good game, as long as you don't get to annoyed by some of the control/gameplay mechanics.

The game has a straightforward combat system which is reminiscent of your usual hack and slash games like god of war or heavenly sword with certain moves used to counter or more effectively fight certain enemies. The upgrade system is also similar, with many upgrades adding new moves to your repertoire and powering up existing moves.
Story wise, this is a VERY loose adaptation to the Chinese folk tale of Journey to West. Having said that, the character development takes very strange and jarring turns, whereby character relationships start transitioning without a real catalyst. However by the second half of the game the story and characters wrap up very nicely in the end.
Overall despite all its shortcomings the fairly intuitive gameplay mechanics and the increasingly engaging story made this game quite fulfilling and well worth the already low cost.
