Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is the best game that you’ve never played. The colourful Ninja Theory adventure crashed and burned when it originally deployed in 2010, but publisher Namco Bandai has opted to give it a new lease of life with a digital re-release for the PlayStation Network. Don’t miss out on it a second time.
The game – which closely mimics the plot of literary classic Journey to the West – sees you take control of the muscular Monkey, as you traverse a post-apocalyptic North America with your teenage captor Trip. The title fuses Uncharted-esque platforming with simple combat, and has some of the strongest storytelling on the PlayStation 3.
This brand new download version comes with a slew of additional content, including the Pigsy’s Perfect 10 expansion pack and a bunch of previously pre-order exclusive costumes. There’s a trailer embedded below. If you’re hungry for more information on the game, check out our glowing review through here.
