So, just finished Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and I have to say that it is a really fun game.
The graphics are beautiful, the game generally is really amazing. The characters are a few of the most colorful I’ve ever seen and I kinda love them all actually. It is really creative and gives me a feeling of God of War and Shadow of the Colossus mixed together in a steam punk world.
There is a lot of battles and swinging from platform to platform in this game that can be a bit annoying but I felt that the mechanics of the game works really well and there isn’t any trouble with jumping everywhere or dodging enemies even though the game stresses you like hell, however trying to navigate between mines with the “cloud” was kind of annoying when I tried to grab all the tech blob thingys. After a while I just took those I could and forgot about the rest, my hording/collecting little “OCD” girl inside of me screamed in despair, heh. I also found out that stunning mechs that have shields is the easiest way to take them down.
The game is really comedic and jokes with a few parts of itself that I felt was a nice breeze. Even have a few sexual jokes in there that made me chuckle. There is also some romantic parts of it that felt really nice but that is for the player to explore. The interaction between characters are spot on, the animation for the faces in this game is awesome, you can’t help but to love it when somethings happen, had me chuckling from time to time. Voicing and doing the motions are Andy Serkis, Lindsey Shaw and Richard Ridings.
I did not agree with the ending fully however. Feeling that it was unfair to do like they did instead of thinking one step longer. What do you think?
