BEST SINGLE PLAYER GAME IN A LONG TIME!,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: Enslaved: Odyssey to the West (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I bought this game after playing the demo and was really intruiged by the story line! WOW! this game takes you along on a fantastic story and the ingame acting and dialogue is some of the best i have ever come across in a game. The characters are so believable due to the dialogue and the motion caption of facial expression that was used in this game which grabs and haves you really caring about what happens within the game. Later levels the dialogue between Monkey and Pigsy is fantastic and brought a smile to my face many a time. Don't think its just a button masher because this won't get you very far without dying later in the game, you have to be tactical with how you use monkeys staff and the combo moves youv'e upgraded. Then theres the graphics which are really fresh and vibrant and make a wonderfull change to the mundane colours which are used in many a game these days. In short i simply could not put this game down due to the excellent in game acting, dialogue and wonderfully paced action i just hope it does well enough that they make a follow up. I am a compulsive game trader i buy complete and trade for the next new title constantly but this is one game im hanging onto as i have read that there is some meaty DLC on the way a and i just have to play more of monkey and co!
