What are you waiting for? Beautiful and great fun.
The graphics are gorgeous, the narrator is superb, creating drama and even making me laugh with his puns at one point. The upgrade system is great if you don't mind exploring and breaking things apart, which I don't mind at all. I quite enjoy being rewarded with money for breaking things! I wish the real world was more like that.
Everything ran great on my 2010 Macbook Pro 15 inch! I can only imagine how much more beautiful the artwork would look if I had a Retina display.
I had a few reservations about the WASD keyboard controls, but they worked for me. I figured out quickly that if you hold down two directional keys, you can walk on the diagonal paths that the game favors. I haven't mastered the battle mechanics yet when I get swarmed with enemies, but after my first play I will definitely be coming back for more!
My only regret is not getting this game sooner. I had heard great things and I am glad I finally downloaded Bastion!
A solid game with hours of fun
This is a well-made, smoothly-playing, visually-entertaining game. At the sub $10 price, its 4 stars. Anything more than $10 is 3 stars. The reason it doesn't earn 5 stars is that using the same difficulty level, the challenges are not evenly matched. The storyline progression levels are much easier than the skill tests. I understand that "tests" means they should be increasingly harder, but its extremely difficult - almost impossible - to complete all the tests vs the level of skill it takes to complete a storyline level. The other flaw is that the town isn't really interactive enough or usefull beyond a few upgrades. For a classic adventure game-player, like myself, I expect that the 'town' will be a bit of an entertaining break from the slogging fragfest, this town isn't, its just annoying that I have to walk all the way back through it up to the teleport every time. Lastly, the narrators voice and manner of speaking is cool and funny at first, but it soon begins to wear on you.
The game is definitely worth $10.
First I want to say that I don't usually buy games from the app store, but when I do I put a lot of time in trying to decide exactly what I want to purchase.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this game. It had a lot of reviews talking about how great it was, but sometimes you just have to play for yourself to prove it.
I don't regret buying this game at all. I bought it on sale for $5, but I would have payed full price for it. I put over 15 hours of game play into just the story. There's still loads of extras that I haven't played yet. The story is very deep and interesting, a few times I got a little confused and lost with the story, so i'll have to play through again, but I'll enjoy every minute of it. The customization of weapons is great, and the amount of weapons and upgrades is large.
Overall this is a great game, with a good story and lots of customization. It runs fine on my 2011 macbook pro, and was a thrill to play. I'd recommend it to anyone.
