Prince of Pers… I mean… The Jungle

Enslaved: Odyssey To The West is one of those tough games to review. While playing through this platform/adventure game you can constantly see the idea that the developers, Ninja Theory, had behind their vision of an event or gameplay sequence.
But sadly more often than not Enslaved lets you down. It is, however, by no means a bad game.
Enslaved puts you in the shoes of ‘Monkey’ (played by Andy Serkis) a Tarzan like man who grew up alone roaming the wilderness of post apocalyptic Earth. Skynet… uhh I mean the ‘Mechs‘ rose up and seemingly seized control of Earth, wiping out cities such as New York hundreds of years ago causing most of the cities’ rubble to develop a nice healthy layer of vegetation over it.
It’s an interesting sight and a refreshingly different take on the post-apocalyptic visuals compared with the wastelands you see in games such as Fallout or Terminator.
