YMMV / Enslaved: Odyssey to the West

  • Alternate Character Interpretation: Either Trip is a scared young girl with understandable motivations, who's sympathetic despite her actions, or a calculating bitch who will exploit anyone and anything to get what she wants. Any forum thread concerning Enslaved will have a fair number of people defending either interpretation.
  • Guide Dang It!: Finding every Tech Orb in the game (there's an achievement/trophy for it). While you likely wont have trouble finding the vast majority of them (say 70 to 80% per level), finding ALL of them will require careful use of a guide. Even worse is the fact that some orbs are glitchy, and sometimes will either randomly not be there, or will disappear if you don't grab it fast enough.
    • Finding every Mask as well.
  • It's Easy, So It Sucks: A common complaint by reviewers. Game Informer cited how the game apparently won't let you jump unless you'll land safely.
  • Jerkass Woobie: Trip makes some awful decisions over the course of the game, but you can't help but feel bad for her.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Certain Mechs are sure to be this.
    • The death of the slave that is threatened into assisting Monkey.
    • The screams of the slaves trapped within coffin sized cells. No, there is no way to help them.
    • The Dog stalking you in the theater.
  • Older Than They Think: Some people started to complain this series was ripping off Dragon Ball. Both are inspired by Journey to the West.
  • Tear Jerker: Pigsy's Heroic Sacrifice.
