Slick’s Quick Hits: Enslaved: Odyssey To The West

Ka-me-ha…..oh wait wrong story. Actually it’s not; Both Dragon Ball and Enslaved are both based upon the Chinese legend Gensomaden Saiyuki, commonly translated to Journey To The West. Also, Monkey, one of the two main characters and Goku are both based upon the hero of said legend – Son Gokou, the monkey king. And if you want to know any more about the connections, READ A BOOK (props to anyone that picks up that Tick reference)! Trip has placed an enslavement device on Monkey’s head (which looks like Son Gokou’s crown) to essentially make him her bodyguard. The combat is reminiscent of Heavenly Sword – no surprise as the game is made by the same people. The developers are hoping to get right the things that went wrong in that game and this will not be a PS3 exclusive.


Some of the gameplay reminds me of Ico because Monkey has to endure danger and get Trip through unharmed. Monkey’s movement is very synonymous with his name and so far the game looks great.
