    The most compelling argument that Indie games are better than most AAA titles.

    Rated on March 10, 2012 by JimmyFrost

    This game has a charm that I have not experienced in a long time. The music is perhaps the best I've heard in a decade. Red Dead Redemption had the crown until this wonderful entry. The narration keep...

    One of the most refreshing titles in years with only one real drawback, the pacing.

    Rated on August 05, 2012 by Zubinen

    What can I say it has strong level design, fantastic audio both in-game and soundtrack wise, well done narrative, basically the full package with a few minus points due to huge pacing issues. At least...

    Nice little fun, entertaining, awesome Game!

    Rated on September 28, 2012 by GlinTrue

    I finished playing Bastion and it was a hell of a game. Creative, exiting and a lot of fun. You play a kid in a world where the laws of nature don't apply. Something has happened to the world and ...

    Stepping in dog doo is sometimes considered a good thing

    Rated on January 01, 2013 by Rotondi

    The fear of sleep is killing me these days. But one thought that helps me relax is the thought of waking up with my bed still grounded on the earth and something hard under the sheets. In Bastion, o...

    Easy to pick up and play, and it will suck you in. Highly memorable with good replay value.

    Rated on March 06, 2013 by Xavren

    This game is charming. Between the beautiful art style and music selection, the constant narration by an excellent voice actor, and the fast-paced, often challenging gameplay, there's very little not ...
