I feel we’ve been pretty PS3 focused on WeView recently. When we kicked everything off we were very inclusive with lots of multi-platform titles, but for the last month or so it’s just been PS3 exclusives. Luckily TSA has a very strong base of PS3 users, so it wasn’t all that terrible, but now it only seems fair to be inclusive for a week.
So Enslaved: Odyssey to the West. How can you hate a game where the main character is called Monkey? He even looks like a monkey! Yes, I’m very easily amused. Moving on. To be fair, Enslaved seems pretty hard to hate regardless of a character named Monkey, so much so that Dan absolutely agonised over the game’s review.
I’ve agonised over what score to give Enslaved. I desperately want to give it a ten purely for its fantastic story, but a fantastic story does not a good game make – it needs the gameplay to back it up and that’s where Enslaved falls down in places. What we are left with is a flawed masterpiece, but one that you definitely need to play.
After what seemed like a very tough decision the game ended up with an 8. Perhaps you think it deserved to get itself the full ten out of ten, or maybe you thought we were too generous with the title in the end. Well now’s the time to let us know.
Just head over to the forums and leave us your thoughts on the game. Whilst I’m not going to discount longer reviews, please remember that the aim is for short, snappy opinions. More than that I simply don’t have the time to wade through longer reviews, so if you want to have your opinion included in the verdict post try to keep it short.
Once you’ve written your review make sure you give it a score on the Buy It, Bargain Bin It, Rent It, Avoid It scale. Remember, if you want your score and opinion included in Monday’s verdict post you need to have it done by Sunday afternoon, otherwise I’ll have written it and you’ll be left out in the cold.
