Dustforce takes platformers tested by time, such as Megaman and refines the genre to it's maximal potential. Everything is spot on, you are in full control, precise and absolutely magnificent. It takes a while to get used to the gravity, controls and all these essential elements in the game, but even after you got the hang of the basics, there are many more things to master. From combat to advanced techniques, there is always room for improvement.
Dustforce was made for speedrunning, you can clearly see it with the leaderboard and replays of playthroughs of every player's best runs. You can see the best players what exactly they did at every level and learn the routes and have the wonderful experience of speedrunning, where you play the same level for half an hour to get that 0.07 second advantage.

This has to be my favorite platformer on steam at the moment. I've put in 35+ hours as of writing this review, and I'll put in plenty more trying to SS every level. The difficulty ramps up quite a bit as you make your way through each level, and the seemingly simple controls open up to some fantastic speed tech once you learn a few tricks. With a replay system that allows you to watch anyone's play through of a level, you'll want to go back and improve your time trying new techniques you see other players use. It can get quite competitive between you and people on your friends list as you try to one up each other. The music is absolutely glorious. The OST itself is a great buy, definitely have that on rotation in my playlist. The art style is simple and clean, the animations are smooth and the game looks and feels better and better the faster you go. If you enjoy difficult precision platformers, or love games with mechanics that allow you to go fast, this is a purchase you won't regret.

There is nothing bad to say about this game. Nothing.

The soundtrack is a unique, atmospheric montage of skillfully crafted musical sounds. The gameplay is flawless and exciting, and can be quite the challenge to those who think they've seen all the game has to offer! With an intricate overworld, gorgeous scenery, and riveting gameplay, this is a must-have game for anyone who enjoys platformers or video games in general.

There are hidden spots in every level where you can sit and enjoy the scenery for as long as you like, all while relaxing to the fabulous soundtrack. There are hidden secrets which add to the game's depth as you struggle to find at least one in every level of every one of the four worlds. For an indie game, it does everything right.

The controls are responsive and they will not miss an input unless you put in a dash while you're in the air (as that won't happen on any game anyways). Each level is better than the last, and there's a Tome of Levels for you to visit your favorites if you choose not to run through the overworld to get to it. Please play it with a controller, as keyboard takes getting used to.

All in all, this game is wonderful. For me personally not worth 10 bucks or whatever it goes for, but you can get it every few months in a bundle for a dollar with some other games, so there's always that.

This game is absolutely worth the money. The amazing music, the atmosphere, the satisfying and challenging gameplay... Everything about Dustforce makes it a masterpiece. I purchased it on a Humble Bundle a while back, but then bought it full price on my PS Vita to show my support (and so I could play it when I'm out!). Even if you missed the two or three Humble Bundles this game has been in, I assure you it will be worth the money.

A fun and challenging platformer with a good flow, varied stages, and a sweet soundtrack. Can get a bit too tough in later levels, though.

Excellent art, fantastic soundtrack, and high-difficulty platforming define Dustforce DX. This game is not easy, but it is very fun to explore and discover as you try to master its expertly crafted challenges.

It's a nice game. It has a good soundtrack and nice graphics, but sometimes the difficulty is not necessary, and the game sometimes gets bit boring and heavy because of this, and personally, I've played better platform games, and... I would recommend others instead of this one. 6/10

It can get pretty challenging. It's a little lame dusting leaves around but whatever, it works. You have to clear a levels leaves and it can be fun but the controls could be more responsive and tighter. Otherwise, it is not a bad game, give it a try if you like platform puzzlers.

Terrible controls and unreliable physics. Prepare to hit the wrong key many times, and have your walljumps/runs affected by pure luck on whether or not it does what you want
