Narration Alone Makes This A Great Gamemikenotcaptain | Dec. 5, 2014 | See all mikenotcaptain's reviews »
Bastion has all of the elements that an Indie game should have. It has a unique and beautiful setting, it has solid gameplay, and amazing soundtrack and voice acting. I literally could listen to the narrator of this game to lull me to sleep. The story of Bastion is great and the skill/item progression kept me engaged throughout its entirety. My favorite aspect of this game,other than narration, is the unique setting. The floating world that appears as you walk around makes for a world that has no other like it. Wonderful indie game that I would suggest to anyone.
A Bastion of good funyarkitty123 | Nov. 7, 2014 | See all yarkitty123's reviews »
I wasn't expecting much from Bastion by dint of the bulky, in-game character models alone, but I was pleasantly surprised. You really have to play it and get into the narrative to really appreciate the game, then maybe less than an hour in everything starts gelling and you get a lot of useful, clever assortment of powers you get in games like Metroid (not comparing genres here, just the quality and depth of powers you get). I highly suggest playing the game with the stellar gameplay, cool narrative, and fun powers. There is a lot of game/depth here, and it's one of the finest RPG experiences you can find on Steam. 10/10, would Bastion again.
Bastion - reviewcarlyle | Nov. 7, 2014 | See all carlyle's reviews »
Bastion looks like a stock characterised by simple mechanical extremely accessible and immediate. The player just continue along the path that is created in front of the boy, defeating all manner of creature until the discovery of the artefact useful for the reconstruction of the ramparts. This pattern is repeated substantially the entire length of the game, interrupted only by sessions to be addressed to raise survival "coins" and unique challenges that will allow us to get the materials to be used in upgrading of weapons at your disposal. Each unit collected at the end of a stage will rebuild one chosen among the six buildings that were once the bastions, an act that we can use to expand gameplay possibilities and customization of the equipment. The element that makes it stand out Bastion in the now abundant mix of video game masterpieces of independent matrix is undoubtedly the so-called "dynamic storytelling." From the first seconds of the game until the end of the adventure the male voice of the character of Rucks will not be limited simply to tell the story and events in their order, but in a different way every comment on your choice of action or habit. The environments inspired by the narrative engaging and breathtaking sound department create a great little work that will be hard to forget.
One of the bestmadm0x | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all madm0x's reviews »
Bastion is an amazing game, filled with colorful art and a sexy narration that tells the story as you play as oppose to ripping the camera and controls from you so you can watch a 5 minute cut scene. I would love to play another game with this guy as a lead voice. Music for the game is also very good and fitting for this kind of game, somewhat somber at times.The game play is pretty fast pace and excellent, though has it's short falls. One of them is that you are given too many weapons, Unless you plan on experimenting with the weapon load-out, You will usually stick with what works for you. Same with secret skills, which I hardly ever used while playing. Overall, an amazing game that opens up for you the more you play.
Indie game worth some praise.Strictnyne | Nov. 6, 2014 | See all Strictnyne's reviews »
I'll be fair and honest to say I've never been huge on the indie titles, but I picked this one up for a few bucks and thought why not. The game style is a bit different then I'm use to, but I've rather enjoyed my time with this one. It makes me think getting transistor by this company may very well be worth it. The soundtrack and art style seem to make you have to give the indie market a very series shot of your attention.
