Dust: An Elysian Tail

 

When gaming companies set out to create games most of the time the games are made with a passion for their idea and the game companies will spare no expense to guarantee that millions of other gamers get to enjoy it as well. Sometimes you get games...

Amnesia: The most convenient of plot devices.

The last push and final confrontation are a union of repetition and frustration, overstaying its welcome and almost undoing the good work. Bookended by a flat beginning and ending, it’s the entertaining centre of this adventure that is its strong suit....

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review

 

The Summer of Arcade has been a pretty good one for Xbox Live users, right? We started off with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD, a game that brought back most of the good vibes that the series had so many years ago on the PlayStation and Dreamcast; we...

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review

 

There aren't very many bad Metriodvania games. They probably exist, but the combination of vast open platforming worlds with nonlinear exploration pioneered in Super Metroid and expanded on with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is one of the most...

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review

 

Dust: An Elysian Tail periodically stumbles, but impressive visuals and enticing exploration make for a successful journey.

Gorgeous, diverse backgrounds ; Smooth combat with sharp controls ; Tons of well-hidden secrets ; Lots of content aside from story missions

Shallow combat ; Lousy voice acting and boring story

The goblins that populate early levels change to lumbering trolls, kamikaze bombers, slinking wolves, and other ill-tempered creatures as you plunge deeper into your quest. Diverse visual design ensures every beast you snare has a cartoonish charm that...

Dust has been flying under the radar quite considerably for the past few years. Intiially slated to be an Xbox Live Indie title, it was eventually slated to be an Xbox Live release in 2011, only to be delayed into the Summer of Arcade in 2012

Sometimes, when you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. Even in video game development. Find out why Dust is a one-man marvel.

It's hard to believe that such a content rich, well-polished title could be the product of one man's hard work. Aside from the incredible orchestral soundtrack and savvy voiceovers, creator Dean Dodrill is responsible for every aspect of Dust. Sure,...

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review

 

I don't know about you…

Furiously arcade-y combat; Varied enemies to beat down; Hand-drawn environments and animations; Tons of quests and secrets to uncover in a huge world

Absolutely insufferable characters and story

While my interest in the title was all but killed within the first five minutes thanks to this intolerable premise, Dust's furious combat quickly did away with my apprehension. While you'll mostly mash the X button, the Y button can be thrown in for...
