    Bastion is a fun, beautiful and soulful experience that’s more than just the sum of its individual parts.

    Bastion

    Gone Home

    Fantastic atmosphere, impressive details, seamless gameplay and great storytelling. Over-priced.

    The controls are sharp enough and the gameplay never breaks your connection with the story, although it lacks in variety and challenge. The game progresses at a steady pace and it's fun just to find and explore every roo... Read Full Review
