Bastion is an isometric action RPG with hand painted art.

You're "the Kid", a survivor of the Calamity. After you wake up, you do as supposed after a disaster and head to the Bastion, there you find out the Bastion needs cores to work as intended, and you are sent to explore what remains of the world in search of these. During your joruney, you'll face countless enemies, you'll explore land no one has set foot on before, you'll also know more about the Calamity and when the time comes... Forget that, it'd just ruin the surprise.

Long story short, this game has beautiful graphics, gorgeous music, a fancy narrator and flawless gameplay, I'll just go ahead and say it, this ladies and gentleman is pefection.

★★★★★ | Loved it

Finally got back to finish this, and the still wonderful and charming little game even managed to draw me in for a New Game Plus.

Beyond being fun to play, with an array of weapons and gear you can suit to your playing style and preferences, it also has a great atmosphere with musical pieces and moments that will make your heart hum, together with a superb narrator that will make you fall in love with storytelling all over again.

Fantastic game and fully recommended.

There is no way you wouldn't love it.
Bastion is a beautiful game in which each element fits properly.
  • The hack and slash gameplay is fun and amplified by leveling up your character, improving your weapons, and making the game harder through idols. There's so much to discover.
  • The story is traditional stuff, but I was wrapped up in the experience from the main menu to the credits thanks to leaderboards, easy to navigate menus, and more.
  • Just a beautiful world. The characters are detailed, the colors are rich, and the world forming underneath the kid's feet is a nice touch.
  • The sound effects, the score, and the narrator (Cunningham's sensational debut role) are all excellent.
  • The game after the first time tells you that there are still many things to do before you eventually turn it off.
Try it for yourself and fall in love.

10/10 would jump off the sides of the map over and over to hear the narrator judge me for my actions. Fight the power!
