Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Pigsy’s Perfect 10 (2011)

Pigsy decides to make himself a perfect companion and, after carefully making plans, sets off with his robot buddy Truffles to collect the parts. However, they are all in Mech-patrolled territory and he will have to use all his cunning and gunning to make it through unscathed.

8/10

Pigsy ("I eat therefore I am") wants the perfect woman for a companion but it’s a relief to note that he never gets disasteful in this DLC pack for Enslaved like he did in the main game. There are gripes: checkpoints are only saved at chapter breaks, I didn’t realise that you could EMP and Bomb turrets (because in Enslaved, you can’t), there’s still some stuttering graphics and Pigsy’s abilities in this prequel disappear in the main game. However, Richard Ridings (Pigsy’s voice) is outstanding again, the design remains wonderfully detailed, the size and gameplay is satisfying and, perhaps most memorably, it’s got a really nice story; very sweet and worthwhile to experience.

This Enslaved: Odyssey to the West game contains robot violence.
