If you’re unfamiliar with the classic Chinese myth known as Journey to the West, you might want to consider dipping into one of its many book and movie versions, because there’s a reason it’s been a beloved story for hundreds of years. It’s a fantasy adventure that touches on many broad themes, and of course stars the Monkey King, who reaches just about maximum awesome for a hero.
One of the first things a particularly brilliant, if slightly doofus-y games journalist says in the above video is this (but with crappier grammar): "The only thing that can keep Enslaved: Journey to the West from being a sleeper hit is if it becomes a bona fide, full-blown hit." I'm right, too.

We got excited about Enslaved: Odyssey to the West when we finally got our hands on it recently. We're worried that this possible sleeper may just get ignored by the public since it's not obvious what the game's really about, and it's hard to tell why it's different from anything we've played in quite some time. So here are the ten things that make Enslaved so much more than just another fall action game in a fall choked with action games...
We’re a bit in love with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West here at GR, so when we heard about upcoming DLC for it, we were like, “Hell yeah we want to see that!” Ignoring opportunities for continuing the potential romance between Monkey and Trip and sticking with the standard look and gameplay, Pigsy’s Perfect 10 instead goes for 3D visuals, a prequel timeline, and goes for a hybrid of stealth and sniping gameplay...
Retro indie platformers are a dime a dozen these days, so it's takes something truly special to stand out from the pack. Escape Goat manages that by combining an absurd premise with some complex and clever puzzles...
