I write this within minutes of completing Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, and with all the raw emotion it left me. Perhaps I was too prepared to get involved with the story but, for it's time, I felt the facial animation and dialogue of it's characters only encouraged me to do so. Trip's story was so brilliantly executed, and I really felt for her in the hardship and regrets she suffered. The world is gorgeous and helps to set the tone of the post-apocalyptic world. If anyone has ever walked in summer you will realise how vividly coloured the world really can be, something I felt is lost in other games in favour of a "Nitty, gritty" palette where everything is mixed with grey. But the visuals are beautiful if you can forgive the relatively low-res of the game. Otherwise the combat is decent but repetitive since you face the same enemies again and again and again. But the different contexts and environments you face them in help to spice things up a little. And when you're really into such a beautiful story you can't help but be drawn along. 9/10 if only for lack of more interesting enemies.
