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.

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.

Tough-as-nails platformer. But god damn if it doesn't feel incredible to flow up ceilings, walls, and over spiky spiky pits once you get good at it. It's pretty much got all the bells-and-whistles move mechanics, including wall and celing runs, double jumps, 4-way dashes, and screen-clearing special moves. The mechanics are tuned to the point where there are 4 characters that ostensibly are amost identical, but those with a trained game-feel can tell they are worlds apart.

Plus the music is incredible. It will get you laid at parties.

Horribly unresponsive and janky for a platformer. Everytime I died I felt it was the result of the controls rather than my own mistakes, as opposed to a responsive platformer (like Super Meat Boy).

Needs fine tuning on the stickyness and controls.
