Namco Bandai Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

Even though the classic Chinese novel "Journey to the West" has been relentlessly adapted back and forth across many books, TV shows, and video games, Ninja Theory's Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is an incredibly unique take on the iconic story. Supported by memorable characters, smart dialogue, impressive art design, and some downright gorgeous environments, Enslaved is a stellar action-adventure from the Heavenly Sword developer.
