This game is one of the most impressive games I've seen made by a single man. The main draw of the game for me was the combat system, but I ended up getting hooked by the story and exploration much more. The game is very reminiscent of old Metroid and Castlevania games, especially Metroid due to the fact that you will unlock new abilities through the game that can be used to access new areas in levels that you've already been to. There aren't an incredibly large amount of levels, but the levels still take a decent amount of time to get through and have plenty of secrets all over the place.

Back to the combat system that I said interested me before, it is very satisfying but tends to get boring quickly. I found myself just repeating the same combo over and over since there was little reason to use much else. Also, I'd highly recommend playing sidequests rather than just rushing through the main story because enemies become VERY damage-spongey if you aren't properly leveled.

Now, the story; I got quite hooked into the world this game created, despite it's somewhat childish appearance at first glance the story actually gets fairly dark at times while the writing still manages to have a good amount of humor(Mostly from your flying sidekick, Fidget). All the characters seemed well-written to me, except for the main character, Dust. Dust came off as an awfully generic reluctant hero, and what little character development he had seemed forced and out of nowhere. The voiceacting is also very good, aside from, again, Dust himself. I can't pinpoint exactly why, but Dust's voiceacting made me cringe often. A lot of people hate Fidget's voiceactor, but I found it well-done and fitting for the character.

Now, one big complaint people have about this game is the artstyle. A lot of people don't like the sort of "furry" artstyle this game has, but personally, aside from Fidget, all the characters reminded me more of something you'd see in an old Disney cartoon than something you'd see in some lonely wolf-kin's DeviantART gallery. The artwork for the levels is also VERY detailed and well-done, and the animations are very impressive as well. Except for during the cutscenes, for some reason the pre-rendered cutscenes have AWFUL animation quality at times. There were a lot of cutscenes where I wished they had just stuck with the in-game dialogue and preset animations rather than a fully rendered cutscene.

Overall, this game is absolutely fantastic, and I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys those old Metroidvania-style games and people who enjoy a good story. Don't be turned away by the artstyle, I assure you there is no yiffing involved in this game. ...Just don't look up any fanart.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is an awesome action platformer! The story in this game is just fantastic... I felt excitement, compassion... and I even dropped a tear! (As far as I know, only 1 other game made me cry). The feelings are really strong in this game. There's way more to the game then just the story though! The platforming is good and the combat is fine. The art is simply amazing and the music is extremely good also!

I can't believe i've stopped playing about 1 hour in when I bought this game back in 2013. I came back to it just a few days ago and I had to play it until the end when I really got into the story. I've finished the game way past bedtime...

I actually really like the item system and character stats. You have to put your skill gems where you want your strength to be and it affects how you will play the game. I love finding new materials and crafting items too, it's quite simple, but well done. The metroid-style layout of the map is very enjoyable and the numerous save points makes the game a non-frustating experience.

Honestly, apart for some aspects of the combat (such as no food cooldown and clunky movement during melee strikes) and the game only taking 13 hours to 100%, this game is perfect. I would recommend anyone to purchase this game if you want a good story and an amazing game in general!

The game looked beautiful, the combat was pretty seamless, but I found that I would use the same moves over and over because some were innately more powerful, and it got boring soon after. This would be a good game for someone looking more for storyline and to be dazzled by graphics, the character types and dialogue just weren't for me - a bit child-like. Still a decent game.

This game is fun. It has a good story (not exactly deep; meant for younger people). It has cute characters (that should appeal to anyone who is a fan of Disney movies and such). It has decent voice acting. It has fun hack-n-slash gameplay. It has nice art style and environments. It plays smoothly and without any noticeable bugs (at least for me). There really isn't much I can say against this game.

If a 2D hack-n-slash with the feel of playing a Disney movie is your (or your kids') thing, then you'll most probably enjoy this game. :)

A great game - seriously. The gameplay is not only of great quality, but it offers a decent mechanics challenge and gorgeous world. It's a bit of a lighter game in comparison to the Batman Series or Dark Souls, but it's just as great of a game. Even better? There's top quality voice acting!

Dust: An Elysian Tail is a metroidvania and is one of the best indie games I have ever played. It is a 2d hack 'n' slash game with rpg elements. The game isn't very long so I can see why lots of stuff were limited in the game such as the combat and story and I hope this gets a sequel. This deserves to be disscussed on par with indie masterpeices such as Cave Story and Braid.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is an amazing 2D side scrolling combat game. Not only does this game have an awesome combat system but it has a great story as well. There are also RPG like elements in the game as you level up with experience and can upgrade your gear. Great sounds, music and artwork throughout the entire game. The game took me ~15 hours to play through which includes getting 100% in all the areas and completing all the quests. I highly recommend this game!

This game remains as my second favorite game, right under Counter Strike : Global Offensive. It has an amazing story line and the gameplay was also very enjoyable, the game has very beautiful graphics. I would play this game alot more if i had some time up my sleave, and who can forget Fidget, sometimes it makes you remember how annoying sidekicks are. This game is definetly worth the money.

This is the ONLY game I have EVER played where I actually read the credits at the end. Why you ask? You probably havent but I am going to tell you anyway... This game is so beautifully done that I felt by the end of it it deserved the time to read the names behind it. I really can't find anything to fault with this game. It is, simply put, charming in its delivery.

The characters are great, the story is very well delivered and keeps you invested in the what is going on while giving adequete spaces between story for action and mini puzzles.

The combat, while simple, also has a degree of complexity that does take some time to master but when mastered makes you feel like such a bad*ss while also punishing your mistakes (keep in mind I only played this on the hardest difficulty setting and quite frankly, at times, it was a f*cking nightmare. It may well be quite easy on the easiest setting).

Level design is very well thought out with a great mix of miniture puzzles (to find loot and 'friends'), hazards and a great assortment of enemies to go through.

There is even a simple crafting system and an RPG style levelling system that is also VERY well done as it is simple yet effective in what it does. What does it do? Gives you what I would call 'Freedom Control'. Your free to choose the way you are controlled. 'This armour is the best you can get at the moment (controlled)... now would you like to buy that, craft it by hunting enemies for materials by grinding or buy the materials needed?... Your call chuckles.". It works very brilliantly. Even with the leveling system for Dust. While you can be a powerhouse hitter and kill everything in a few hits, you cant be SUCH a heavy hitter that you die in one hit yourself.

I would recommend this game to everyone. Not that I think everyone will enjoy it on the level I did but because it is so well done that it deserves to be played by lovers of games. It is masterfully done.

This little game rewards persistence. I don't mean that in terms of grinding for gear, like in WoW, but in terms of spending a little bit of time unfolding the story... if you like a deep story little twists, and grippnig emotion. That is where this game shines, even if it takes a little to get into (maybe 2h before the story gets interesting).

The other noteworthy thing to mention is the soundtrack, it's quite beautiful. No one else seems to talk about it here, so I wanted to make sure that it gets a mention.

*yet to complete this game, but I spent a fair bit of time offline with it, thus the "short" amount of play time.

***
OK, I have 99% completed this game - with only 1 achievement outstanding, I wish that I had known this earlier. If you want to get all achievements in this game, start it on "tough" difficulty. I had decided that I wanted to 100% this game by about 1.5h - and didn't realise this was one of the requirements. So now i have another 11h of gameplay ahead of me to replay the entire game, just to get this one achievement.
*The difference between 100% on Casual vs Tough is 17h vs 20h, if you play it through to completion the first time. it's probably more rewarding, too.

The only complaint that I have about the game, is that you cannot skip the ending credits. Seriously.

You get warned before the final boss battle that there is "no turning back once you go past this point" so you have to go and get everything in the world before you face him, if you want to 100% (actually about 117-120% I believe ingame).

It's not a bad entry into the RPG series, as you always feel like you are progressing, never like you are grinding. actually, I levelled up faster than the enemies progressed, so by endgame, I was OP 1hitting almost everything, and 2shotting the hardest minions-type enemies in the game.

Dust was by far one of the most engrossing games I've ever played. It fell a bit short sometimes then it threw me back in everytime. This was the first game to ever give me carpal tunnel, and make me call my PS3 Controller the 'n' word.

The story was pretty good, and the characters were all rememberable and fun. I was told Fidget was annoying and I would get annoyed with her, but she eventually was a cute, caring partner character. Her skills helped me alot near the end of the game, and as for the game's end boss...

Prepare your steroids and testosterone shots, babies because you're gonna have to become a ♥♥♥♥ing man, yo!

I'd rate this game a 9/10. It's almost perfect but could of been a slight bit longer. I hope we get a sequel! That would make my life complete.

There's not much for me to say about this game that hasn't already been said; it's a masterpiece. Dust is one of those games you have to play and if you don't at least enjoy it not fall in love with it then you must not like videogames. At first glance the story seems pretty lack luster and for some it still might even as you play more, but for most it is a masterfully executed narrative backed up by impresive voice acting. There so much more I could say; like how the combat is the most simple yet massively rewarding fight ing I've ever played, or how I couldn't stop playing.

12/10 GET IT!

this is a looooong overdue :) ...well now.. let's see...preety decent graphic considering that is only 2d perspective...although, sometimes, it has to many visual effects (when in a fight) so u can't resemble what is Dust and what is the enemy. (someone was overcompensating for that one ;) ). Gameplay is very fluid, but it lacks speed in some areas. One would disagree on that matter, but i love fast 2d sidescroller ;). The story is really interesting, combining the mystic past of Dust (and Fidget) and (of course) the amnesia of main character is a good recipe for rockin' some major in-game hours. It's definitely worth every penny. (wait for the discount of course ;) )
