What Gamespot Users have to say about Transistor

  • Rating:7

    Apparently my professors were wrong about what transistor really is...

    I tend to like Sci-Fi games set in original settings as I enjoy the genre. Transistor has some really good ideas and the story it tells is interesting although a bit confusing. To be fully aware of what is happening you ... Read Full Review

    A beautiful story - and a neat actioneer to boot

    It's rare that I find myself thinking about a videogame after I finish it, and I think that's a mark of a great game in terms of story telling. Transistor is one of those. The music is weirdly spot-on for the story, and ... Read Full Review

    Transistor Review

    Hello Everyone!I've played through this game a couple of times, and it occurs to me that while it has gained some traction, not too many people can tell if it's a game for them or not. If you're on the fence of whether t... Read Full Review

    Good, but less than the sum of its parts.

    Transistor could be lauded for many things. It's a beautiful game with a great soundtrack and wonderful voice acting. The vast array of combat options that open up as you progress allow for a staggering degree of custom... Read Full Review

    Addictive real-time and turn-based combat mixed with an aesthetically pleasing design and soundtrack.

    I would probably give this game a 10 if it were a bit longer. After playing a game for a while I usually can't wait to beat it and be done with it, but right when I finished the final level of Transistor, I restarted it... Read Full Review

    A beautiful game

    Transistor is quite the beautiful game; from its art style to its poetic dialogue and serene music, the game excels on all fronts on providing a novel experience that feels smooth and fun to play. The combat system takes... Read Full Review

    Transistor Review

    Transistor doesn't start with a big introductory cut-scene or any kind of immediate lore dump. As you progress, numbers fly around ranging from your damage counter to how many secret dips were taken in a public fountain.... Read Full Review

    Transistor has a touching story, but repetitive gameplay holds it back a bit

    The Good: Fantastic audio/visual experience, fun combat, completely customizable weaponsThe Bad: Story makes almost no sense, doesn't really have a sense of direction or purpose, you can't really connect to any characte... Read Full Review
