Enslaved: Journey to the West is now available on Steam, and you need to play it
The wait may have been long, but Enslaved is finally out on PC. The $20 Deluxe Edition comes with the full game along with a suite of DLC, and you really need to give this a try if you have to play.
I don't want to say much about the game in order to avoid spoilers, but everything from the voice acting to the writing is just about perfect, the interactions between the two characters feel earned and human, and the combat itself is handled very well. It's a game that some people love, but most people have not played.
Why don't you go ahead and fix that?
