    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]

    The PC version is also an excellent port, offering a steady framerate, crisp visuals and well-established controls. If you missed out on this grand adventure when it was on the Xbox 360, here’s the perfect opportunity to fix that.

    It’s a bit rough around the edges but the smooth action, beautiful visual design and engrossing story made Dust a trip to Elysium for me.

    Highly entertaining, substantial and a visual treat but with a slight whiff of Gorgonzola in the story department.

    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.

    ¿Qué acciones tomarías tú, si un día despertaras en un lugar extraño y sin recordar absolutamente nada sobre ti mismo y tu pasado?...

    Esto
    es lo que nos propone Dust: An Elysian Tail, un juego donde se desenvuelve una historia no solamente original, sino verdaderamente atrapante y con varios giros en su desarrollo que no son para nada predecibles en realidad. Una historia en la cual te encuentras con varios personajes únicos y memorables, sobre todo los principales, de los cuales te hacen querer saber más sobre ellos.

    Si extrañas juegos al estilo de los clásicos "Castlevania" encontrarás varias similitudes a ello en "Dust", que cuenta con una jugabilidad sencilla pero completamente adictiva, niveles amplios y con elementos de RPG ya que nuestro personaje puede subir de nivel y portar objetos que lo ayuden a ser más fuerte. También existe el uso de ataques mágicos que llegan a ser bastante espectaculares

    Este juego cuenta con varios secretos y parodias por descubrir en los cuales llega a hacerse mención a otros juegos reconocidos de otras empresas.

    En cuanto a gráficos es impresionante ya que son totalmente coloridos, atractivos y con escenarios perfectamente diseñados, cada uno con su tema propio muy bien adaptado.

    La banda sonora es de las mejores que he escuchado en mucho tiempo, sencillamente perfecta, encajando con la atmósfera de forma muy exacta, permitiéndonos sumergirnos placenteramente en esta aventura épica. Es increíble la manera en que encaja de forma maravillosa en los momentos mas críticos y emotivos de la historia.

    Las actuaciones sobre las voces de los personajes es algo que cabe destacar también ya que los diálogos son interpretados increíblemente, convirtiendo el intercambio de dialogos entre personajes en algo muy apetecible y entretenido. Sobre todo en las escenas de éxtasis donde las actuaciones llegan a convertirse en algo muy bello.

    En resúmen: "Dust: An Elysian Tail" es un juego que no te puedes perder si eres amante de las aventuras fantásticas o simplemente buscas un buen juego que te haga olvidarte completamente de la vida cotidiana para llevar tu mente a lugares fantásticos y coloridos... sin necesidad de drogas.

    Mis felicitaciones a los desarrolladores.

    A game I really enjoyed playing: catchy story, delightful music, charming characters. Everything a game needs.
    The 2D cartoon style is well
    performed and fits really well the universe, the fights are really cool too and the combat system is well though.
    I highly recommend this cheap game, it'll make you lough and cry.

    I love Fidget! Er, this game can be better but it's already excellent enough. New things (skills, enemies, items, gameplay) keep coming from the first minute to the last so you won't easily get tired of it. The exploration is terrifically good fun. There are 12 friends (characters from other 8 awesome games) to be rescued in this game and the Bastion-style way to rescue the kid from Bastion most impressed me. And again, I love Fidget! Expand

    Wonderful indie fantasy game.

    I can't leave on my chair when I play this game.

    Lovely story, mood and easy but fantastic combo action.


    I am sure this can be one of best platform action up to recently. Recommend!

    The first 40% of the game is fantastic and original; a very interesting story with an anthropomorphous art-style that seems to be well-worth the 14 euros. However, it then suddenly hits you over the head with a seemingly endless underground level that features large amounts of platforming and enemies that can only be beaten by parrying, whereas the first 40% was a fast-paced and flashy brawler. It suddenly expects you to have mastered techniques you never before needed, which indicates that the designers didn't really know what made their game fun and put their money on the wrong horse. Even the anthropomorphic stuff gradually disappear to make room for more platforming puzzles and combat all but disappeared from the game, aside from a few tedious encounters with shielded foes.
