Uma belíssima mistura de sidescroller, Hack and Slash e RPG.

Aliado a uma historia que não é uma inovação, mas bem contada, personagens carismáticoas e uma excelente trilha sonora, fazem este jogo valer a pena!

This is a game that I had been meaning to play for a while now. The visuals in the screenshots look absolutely stunning. Dust has been out since early 2013 and it has that real polished feeling of a fantastic game. Essentially this is a hack and slash, RPG, side scroller. The combat system is basic, but does exactly what you need it to do. All of the attacks look and feel satisfying, as well as the parry system which normally is something that gets overlooked in a lot of games like this.

The musical score behind Dust is somewhat of a masterpiece too. I am surprised they haven’t released just the sound track as it is beautifully crafted. The level design on offer here is interesting too. Each "zone" is split into separate areas, which can be a little daunting at first because they are all huge. One gripe I did find is that the map in game isn't very clear and can sometimes cause confusion as to where you actually are on it.

As I said above, the combat system is basic, so this means you can master it very easily. There are a few combos to learn as you progress, as well as a welcome addition of a crafting mechanic. I also liked the feature where if you sold something to a shop, they would then stock this in the future so you can buy multiple copies of it; this is really helpful when you are trying to craft your armour and weapons.

This took me roughly twenty hours to complete everything on offer, main story line, challenges and side quests. The game did feel slightly repetitive towards the end of the last chapter however.

I would really recommend you pick up Dust: An Elysian Tail, you can more often than not find it on sale, but I would still recommend this at full price.

If you found this review helpful, please consider giving it a thumbs up. You can also find more reviews over at http://www.completingthebackloggroup.com/

Dust: An Elysian Tail is an interesting little item. It plays as an exploratory 2D-sidescroller / action-platformer— a genre colloquially dubbed “metroidvania.” Captivating, hand-painted artwork and a stellar soundscape merge with solid gameplay mechanics and a trope-riddled, but well-told, narrative to form the end result of a pretty enjoyable game experience. Be aware: this game was designed to be kid-friendly, and does have an overall essence similar to what you may find on children’s Saturday morning cartoons.

The gameplay essentially boils down to 2D hack-and-slash combat and mild exploration. The combat is fast paced, fluid, responsive, and quite fun at first. But, to be honest, it does grow stale as the game goes on. You have the same attack abilities by the end of the prologue that you have at the end of the game— and it isn’t that many. You will quickly see the best strategy is to just spam a few buttons while hopping around, and that’s basically what the combat becomes. The various difficulties spread the gamut from “for children” to “for masochists,” with some sweet spots in between. Although, even on “Hardcore,” with some grinding you can raise your stats to a point where it becomes easy… if you have the patience.

Furthermore, there are a lot of secrets to discover and treasures to find throughout all the levels, which to me was more exciting than the combat. You will unlock new movement abilities as the game progresses, which allows you to reach new treasures in all the levels. This also was slightly annoying because often times throughout the game you will spot a treasure that is tantalizing you just beyond your reach; but it then becomes that much more satisfying when you return later to collect it with your shiny, new double jump ability.

The story is overloaded with tropes and clichés. Right from the start: you are greeted with a main character with heroes amnesia, but a great power within; you are greeted with a cute-but-ditsy, comic-relief sidekick; and you are greeted with another sidekick who knows your destiny, but won’t just come out and say it… just to name a few. From there, the story does develop into something more substantial and decently interesting, yet still quite cliché. Also, as I alluded to earlier, the game has an overall identity akin to what you find in children’s cartoons. And the characters and voice acting do not stray from this identity. Thus, some of you may find some of the dialogue and acting to be annoying or childlike. Although, personally, I thought the voice acting was pretty well done and enjoyed most of the scenes— but I am easily amused, and am unquestionably a child-at-heart.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is definitely a good game. There are a lot of great elements at work making it a true gem. It does get a little stale towards the end of the game if you are returning to previous areas to 100% it, but if you just play through the game and don’t bother with that stuff then you will probably finish before it goes flat. I highly recommend it to any fan of the genre and would say it is a safe bet for the average all-around gamer.
