The game's immediate charm lies with its 16-bit influenced style, but its true identity is undoubtedly in the hands (and voice) of its ultimately cool and unseen narrator. It all comes together in a remarkable package that will keep you gripped until...

The trainer also gives you the ability to add XP instantly, which helps you level up a ton faster, thus progressing through the game even faster and getting to use some of the other weapons. Strangely, I found myself using the healing potions cheat,...

It is this flexibility which keeps Bastion fresh from beginning to end. The variety of weapons, ranging from repeating crossbows to hammers to mortars, are satisfying to use and they're introduced at an intelligent pace. The moment you feel you've...

Bastion Review - Frictionless Insight

 

The Calamity has left Caelondia shattered. Literally. All that remains of a thriving city are tiny floating fragments and scattered survivors, human and otherwise. A hard-boiled kid with a smattering of fighting expertise allies himself with an older...

The Bastion is an absolute must-own for anyone who has enjoyed action RPGs in the past. The ever-present narration adds a lot to the overall experience, and the core gameplay is very well-executed. Controls are sharp, dungeons aren't too difficult, and...

There's a summer slowdown when it comes to disc-based games, but no shortage of great XBLA titles. Brian Lelas lets us know about Bastion in a review.

Are videogames art? This question has been bounced around a lot in recent years. In the case of Bastion, the answer is a resounding ?yes.? The simplistic yet dynamic combat, the ever-changing world of fantastic imagination and the amazing voice-over...

Bastion - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

The Kid is a nobody. The Calamity happens, everything he's ever held dear and everyone he's ever known are gone, washed away like a memory. He makes his way to the Bastion, where he meets Rucks. As one of only two Caelondian survivors of The Calamity,...
