Excellent fantasy adventure can get violent and suggestive.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (5 ):

For a game that didn't have a lot of buzz leading up to its release, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West shines with intense gameplay, high-production values (including great graphics, convincing voice talent, and a good soundtrack) and a story worth getting into -- not to mention evolving character development, especially the relationship between Monkey and Trip. The controls are fairly easy to pick up, but the camera angles can prove frustrating at times, especially when it's too close to Monkey's back and you don't get a sense of where the enemies are or where you'll have to jump next in a platforming sequence. But overall, this game is a surprising and gratifying pick for fantasy fans.
