Bastion review

Reviewed July 26, 2011

Jason Venter says: "As you run around each gorgeous environment, admiring the dense foliage or the imposing brambles or the stone walls or whatever else, the path ahead of you fills in abruptly. Tiles fly up from beneath the screen, as if drawn to you like magnets. Itís an interesting dynamic to see in action, distracting at first before soon becoming intuitive. Pathways prevent you from wandering too far off the beaten pathóbecause you really canítóand they give the world its own identity. To an extent, it feels like youíre truly living through an apocalypse."

JoeTheDestroyer says: "...you almost feel like you didn't want it to end in the first place, and it wasn't just because of that welcoming old voice or the awesome visuals. The game itself is fun, challenging and addictive thanks to it's simple and easy to pick up gameplay. Bastion has something that a lot of recent ďartsyĒ games don't: both style and substance. "
