+Looks hand-drawn, well animated, vibrant colors, 2D (or 2.5D?)
minor negative: You may need to get used to the positioning of your character/view of the game to attack certain enemies
+Great music, voice acting and sound effects
+Standard beat-em-up style, with some RPG elements. It might feel repetitive at times (but maybe you might be playing too much)
+Challenges changes up the pace
- I personally feel that it's easy even on the hardest mode
Aside from the semi New Game plus and challenges, there isn't much else to replay this game other than nostalgia. Although, i could be wrong
I look forward to the next game this developer makes.
much better to play with a controller than the keyboard. Some parts of the game might be really hard with a keyboard.
I would advise to get it on sale if you will only play once through. If you're a completionist-its worth full price, and you might need to buy the soundtrack when you are done with it.
The graphics are really good, though the 3rd person interface with no zoom takes a bit of getting used to, particularly if you are having to navigate with a keyboard. But, stick with it. As I said, it grows on you, particularly after you get over the controls learning curve.
The game sort of has a Legend of Zelda feel to it. It is not hugely challenging, but the story is fairly interesting. For a solid RPG for under 20 dollars, I think it is good, but not great. It is worth a whirl, but don't expect mind blowing RPG action or story lining.
The game this most reminds me of is Diablo 3. Your equipment options in Bastion are limited to two weapon choices and one skill choice however, so it doesn't allow as much customization as a game like Diablo 3. Your character, The Kid, runs around small linear areas fighting off large groups of enemies in search of cores to help rebuild The Bastion. This creates hectic, hack-and-slash action in which your weapon and skill choices can have a great deal of affect on the outcome of the fight. You also can upgrade your weapons and character as he levels.
I stood in line for Diablo 3 for the midnight release and after a couple weeks, I grew tired of it. However, this similar game, for $4.50, has held my attention far longer. It has to do with the atmosphere. The art style is gorgeous. Occasionally I will get lost in the visuals and run off of the platform. The dynamic narration is also very effective in providing story and keeping the player engaged. The music is also very well done. The combat feels more involved and difficult than in Diablo 3. Perhaps because of the very tight spaces and the requirement of the block mechanic. The story isn't incredibly deep, but a title like this doesn't need a very deep story, just an intriguing one, and Bastion has it.
Even when this title isn't on sale, the low price of entry makes this a must play. You just don't often see such polish and creativity in big budget games today. Pick this up!
You get Bastion.
And for $15 you can't go wrong, now can you?
one thing i found out after a week of owning the game (because i'm slow, and i bought borderlands 2 the same day) is the fact that his game supports the Xbox 360 controller. this is a HUGE advantage for those of us who don't often play PC games and want the feel of a console game on our laptops.
there is one minor issue with getting it to start in windows 8, as i have on my Surface pro: it has problems with compatibility. however, if you spend some time googling around, you'll realize that there's a piece of software that comes with the game that allows use on windows 8. just copy and paste this into your windows file search bar after downloading and installing the game and you'll find the needed program: (C:\Program Files (x86)\Bastion\xnafx31_redist.msi)
this game is underplayed, and amazing. go take a look. (and get the soundtrack too! i listen to it quite often)
If there was an option to give 10*, I would give it 10. This is truly a game that everyone should play. Well done SuperGiant Games.
