by angryman great game
Reading the previews, and listening to the hype for Enslaved made me very anxious to pick it up. Enslaved is a great game with a mix of a good story, and great characters this is a definite buy. The story is really short but still worth checking out..

Rated 9 out of 10 by NerdyRaptor It blew my mind.
When I go in for new games, I always look at the used rack (9.99 and under), and stock up on the cheapos with hopes that I found a treasure. This just happens to be one of those games. I snagged Enslaved for 4.99 on impulse, simply because I loved the art on the cover. When I played it for the first time it was like my brain exploded with awesome. Enslaved was a ride from beginning to end. I adored everything about this game. The characters have a great dynamic, the story line is FANTASTIC, the combat is a perfect blend of simple and challenging, the variety in the game's 'worlds' was refreshing, NOTHING about the game was repetitive, and as a bonus, Andy Serkis is the voice of Monkey! In closing, its really hard for me to find games on PS3 that I can play all day long (The Arkham games are the only others). I was so impressed with this game, and so happy I went ahead and paid the measly 5$ for it. My only regret is that I burned through it in a few days and now I don't know what to do with myself.

If you're a fan of this line of designers - the same crew who made Heavenly Sword, you know that they can bring it. Many of us were a little disappointed when there wasn't a follow up to heavenly sword. Yet this team of designers is on their stuff. I have to give them that. When I downloaded this demo, I did it with the intent that I'd just try it. I had nothing else to do, and I was just bored. This game starts out FROM THE JUMP, with tremendous action. I even let a friend try the demo out and she was on the edge of her seat trying to make the little deadlines that are therein. The characters are amazing, the voice-over's are truly smashing! I can see this one wooing over those of us who truly love a good love story. I wasn't too impressed with the main character being named "Monkey" but hey.... This demo is worth the download and the only way I can see this not being a smash is if it's short. Otherwise - I've got to have this one. THANK YOU THANK YOU for bringing back great gaming guys.
Rated 9 out of 10 by AdrianEpic Brilliant adventure game with good story fun chars
When I first got this game I wasn't too sure about it. The way the game starts out is a little weird, on board a ship with it blowing up, barely giving you time to get on your feet. You won't figure out what's goin on with the story at first, and don't let that deter you from playing it.
As the game opened up, I started loving it.. More attacks are added, projectile weapons, a very cool interactive ability with the sub character that allows you to command her to distract enemies, etc, in key times where you'll need to navigate past them to be able to destroy them..
All in all, it's like a beautiful recreation of the prince of persia experience, with extra game play elements like stealth and cooperative puzzle solving, and a futuristic theme. One of the best action/adventure games I've played in a couple years to be honest!
Do NOT miss out on this game. I haven't put it down for almost 3 days, I'm on chapter 15, and I cant wait to see what happens next!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Ghatz Good, but a few complaints
Let me first say that you should buy this game. But the main part of whether you will like it or not is whether you can overlook a few meh gameplay choices for a great story, and great characters like that of either Half Life, or Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The gameplay is alright, but the combat gets kind of repetitive, its no god of war in this respect but it gets the job done, and the platforming, by the way I am a fan of any kind of platforming, starts of amazing. But after the first level it becomes point the stick in the direction, press X, over and over, since you really have no freedom as to where Monkey goes, he can only go the right way. Well in conclusion, if you would enjoy a great story, with awesome characters, a lush enviroment with great green colors, for once not grey or brown! Then this is the game for you, if not go buy Halo: Reach.
Rated 10 out of 10 by sonygurl23 NEEDS A SEQUEL!
I don't normally write a review my review style is I buy the game and play it over and over. But this game I feel in love, and it was just a filler game for me middle of summer waiting for the great games to come in in winter. So I was going through the lower price games to fill my shopping basket so I wasn't really have much faith for it. But once I put the game in I was hooked, the story line was so interesting. The action was intents where it needs to be. And the way it ended justs screams a sequel. And when I found out that they are not got me heated they will make duke nuk'em forever but lose a chance on a really great franchise as this one. Now I am the type of gamer where when I do everything in a game I will trade it in either for more games or for the newest game I have on hold. So I am begging on my knee's please make a sequel to this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Riozaki A truly Amazing game that passed under the radar
First off let me get off and say that this game completely slipped under the radar even for most hardcore gamers.
Enslaved is an awesome action/adventure game easily rivals others of its nature (god of war, uncharted, castlevania, etc) The game doesn't throw innumerable pitifully mindless enemies at you, so even though the enemies are fewer, they still provide a nice challenge. On that note, even though you may die here and there (enemies and environmental hazards), the game doesn't make dying painful where you have to start all over.
I am usually someone who can pick up a story from the beginning, or a ways into a game but this game genuinely surprised me (the major turning point wasn't what I was expecting, and was thrilled to see it go differently. The ending did have a little strangeness to it, but it was surprising. The characters in this game are just completely awesome and you can't help but love the characters. The main character is Monkey and his design is spot on the mark (totally awesome personality and character animations)
My only critique is that it is sort of short, however, if you like achievements or trophies, this game has alot of them.
I highly recommend this to anyone to like an action game with a great story.
Rated 9 out of 10 by TopTear Very good game but not without flaws
This game blew me away when i first began to play it. The graphics and the music were phenomenal. The scenery/environments are beautiful. The gameplay is pretty good. You basically fight and stun. Upgrading your health and combat keeps the game fresh. Also there are many hidden things that are not too hard to find. Enslaved has some problems but not that many. It has many framerate issues but it didnt stop me from enjoying the game. Also, the game is pretty short. Its not that short but i beat it in around 8-9 hours and i was taking my time. They came out with DLC which increased the amount of hours of gameplay. Im my opinion, this was a very good game with excellent set peices and i would recommended this to anyone.
Rated 0 out of 10 by maniakmedic Even more excited after playing the demo
I played the demo for this after downloading it from the European PSN and I can honestly say I'm even more excited for the game now. The only real issue I had with it was that at times it seemed that there was a small delay between pushing a button and seeing it translated to screen, but other than that it controls well and looks gorgeous. The colors really pop and I love the way that Monkey moves. If you don't have a European PSN account definitely watch for the demo release on the US PSN this coming Tuesday the 21st. As an aside, I'm a huge Uncharted fan and the platforming elements remind me a lot of Uncharted 2, which is hands down my favorite game. October 5th can't come soon enough.
