In Enslaved, players take on the role of Monkey, a strong and athletic, yet solitary figure, who been captured by one of the mysterious slave ships, which harvest the remaining population and take them out west never to return. Trip, a technologically savvy young woman who has also been imprisoned by the same ship, manages to escape. She quickly realizes that Monkey, with his raw strength and power, is her only hope to survive the perilous journey back to her home. She hacks into a slave headband and fits it on Monkey, linking them together – if she dies, he dies… Her journey has now become his and Monkey must now travel west alongside Trip as they traverse a demolished world, under constant threat of capture and mortal peril.
Enslaved is a premier adventure and gaming experience. Players will enjoy taking 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.

Despite the lack of ingenuity in how this interactive story is played, I have found it to still be an incredibly immersive experience due to the richness of both story and graphics. On that note, the graphics deserve a special mention as this is an incredibly beautiful game (google screenshots to see for yourself).
Is this game worth buying? Definitely. Is this game worth $60, well that depends on if you are more interesting in the storytelling portion of the interactive storytelling experience games provide. If you've enjoyed titles such as Heavy Rain, Psychonauts, and/or the Mass Effect trilogy where the plot is the selling point of the game, then I would recommend buying this game as soon as possible. If not, then I would recommend waiting until the price drops down to something more reasonable before purchasing it.
You follow the story of a young tech girl named Trip and a battle-hardened vagabond named Monkey. After escaping from a slave ship, Monkey must escort Trip safely back to the village she was kidnapped from, whether he wants to or not. Set in a time where free men struggle to survive in a world dominated by the homicidal mechanical ruins of a long ended war, you must run, jump, and smash your way through crumbling cities and clockwork goliaths to reach your goal.
I had a lot of fun playing Enslaved and can honestly say that I fully enjoyed the experience. That experience, however, has to be taken with a grain of salt. Do not purchase this game expecting a deep gameplay experience. It is very straight forward. Run and hit things. That's pretty much it. The battle system mainly boils down to pressing the attack button repeatedly while intermittently tapping a dodge button. There are some more aspects involved but nothing really game changing. Outside of combat, the game has a heavy focus on parkour-style exploration. However, this feature is noticeably shallow. Rather than preforming any button combinations that may require mental and reflexive dexterity, you simply run toward the object in front of you and tap jump, and your character takes care of the rest. Hell, you don't even have to guess at where to go next, because that area will be lit up brightly just in case you stopped to wonder if you had to go anywhere but straight for once.Read more ›
I am a trophy hunter. Once I start a game, I cannot move on to another without seeing that platinum trophy pop up in the upper right hand corner of my TV. There have been few exceptions to that rule. Even those exceptions get completed to platinum with time. Taking that into mind, I delve as deep into each game as I possibly can.
There is no way you can button mash through this game if you are trying to get the platinum. There are a lot of trophies (49 of which 17 are completed by beating the game on hard) that require you to actually use cunning and skill. Sure, if all you want to do is beat the game, throw it on easy and enjoy some button mashing. However, I started my first play through on hard. You will quickly find out that button mashing will not get you through the hard difficulty without making you go bald. Wait until you are button mashing on some robot while three others are running in to pummel you for your horrible tactics. Or you say, "Hey look! There are a few robots just sitting there. Oh, wait, wait! Oh GOD DAMNIT!!!" You just got owned by three machine gun robots in the distance because you weren't cautious.
As far as you needing to or not needing to think of where to go next, try finding 100% of those tech orbs without thinking of every possible way the developers could have hidden those tiny red dots. They exploit every camera angle and every millimeter of playing area they can to make sure you don't have an easy time finding them. They even throw a few wrenches into the whole operation that will make you say, "WTF!Read more ›
Have no idea why this game never got the notoriety, but it is a sleeper hit in my book.
