Now, Ninja Theory is giving those gamers a chance by re-releasing the game with additional content. With all the GOTY, Special, and Premium editions that are our there, is Enslaved: Odyssey To The West Premium Edition worth another journey? Find out in our review!
This game deserves to be played once by all.

"All we needed to do is sell a few more copies!"
First off, Enslaved has withstood the test of time very well. While the game was released only three years ago, the market has changed and shifted tremendously, and this story still holds up well. Enslaved is loosely based on the novel “The Journey” by Wu Cheng’en. The game was adapted to video game form by Alex Garland who wrote the screenplay for 28 Days Later and most recently the story for DmC, the amazing Devil May Cry reboot.
