    Dust is energetic like a tornado. It has its artistic touch to it. This gem is like the best of the video games history, to shine upon the present days. [Issue#232]

    This game is everything you could want in an action rpg. Dust has an amazing art style with fluid, engaging combat. The music is fantastic and the voice acting is some of the best I've ever heard.

    The story line is really fresh and makes you feel very sympathetic to it's characters. Not often am I impressed by a game this much. I would highly recommend this game. A game this polished, creative and entertaining to not be played would be a crime.

    Please, whatever you do, ignore all the trolls saying this is a bad game without giving any reasoning behind it. I don't know why you'd believe such crap in the first place anyway, but I had to get that out of the way.

    Dust is honestly one of the most enchanting and charming games I've ever played. The fact that all of this (other than the music) was made by one person just makes this whole thing even more amazing than it already is. And if you're wondering about the music, then you won't be disappointed. Not by any means whatsoever. All-in-all, this proves to be perhaps *the* most captivating PC experiences I've had. The art, the music, the surprisingly dark story...everything.

    Buy this game!
