This is a beacon, a fine reminder that if you have talented people and a little respect for your audience, great storytelling in games can be not only possible but profound.

As a trip through an interesting, beautiful world covering ground that hasn’t been effectively tread in games, with a strong narrative and engaging, believable characters, it provides something unique this Fall. If you can look past its flaws, Enslaved might surprise you as much as it did me.

Enslaved is an affecting adventure that makes strong use of its characters and story to create a believable world.

With the gameplay being such an unwanted distraction, the story is the only attraction. The plot delivers a cool science fiction twist in its final moments, but ultimately serves as a slave to mediocre gameplay for eight to nine hours.

This game is a prime example of why I'm glad I don't listen to reviews to base my buying habits. This game although good, isn't something memorable. Nor is it a "mandatory" staple to any gamer's collection.

The first problem is that the game is from Ninja Theory. And just like with the PS3 game Heavenly Sword, Enslaved was more about graphics and story than gameplay. This seems to always be Ninja Theory's bane. I just feel sorry for the people that bought this at full price as the price dropped to $20 barely a month after release.
