It plays a bit like Zelda, but what differentiates it is the sound. There is a narrator that says things depending on what you're doing. For example, if you get knocked down by an enemy, he might say, "The Kid was knocked down, but he wasn't out yet." And the narrator has the best voice. And the music, goodness the music is one of the best. Transistor by the same developers also had great sound and music. It just seems to be a strength of the studio. The game was challenging enough for an old man who is bad at platformers, but definitely far from impossible. Even getting first prize in all the mini game challenges. I recommend you play this with a controller though.
Bastion is a beautifully designed, fully narrated action rpg. Wherever you go, the world is being assembled right in font of your feet brick by brick, and the narrator tells your story, like it was a fable. The whole thing is rather unique, and has to be seen, to be really appreciated. The core gameplay is a diabloesque action rpg, that can be controlled with a mouse easily, + with the occasional hot keys. It is nice, but there's nothing special there. It is enjoyable though, so in the whole, i recommend this game. If you want to try something indie, this is one of the best.
Bastion has a wonderful way of telling its story and really has to be experienced through your own play to be fully appreciated. Accompanied with great, atmospheric music it makes for a very memorable gaming experience. The combat is responsive and satisfying with great, "hit feel" and FX, and offers good customization. The shrine system provides a real challenge for even the most hardcore, by applying various penalties to the hero and buffs to the enemies. A great game with heaps of value.
Bastion is an amazing game, it's most known for a top-notch soundtrack coupled with a distinctive narrative that will remain for a very long time in your memory. The game offers very nice graphics, interesting design of levels and opponents. Gameplay can be tailored to your expectations - easy and simple or demanding, all depends if you want a challenge or just to have casual fun. Money well spent.
