    Bastion is an extraordinary game and as you might have gathered from this review, I can’t recommend it enough. Aside from the gameplay and story, it offers a lot of replayability in the form of weapon challenges which require tremendous skill to complete.

    I now know why people fell in love with Bastion. It’s a perfectly proportioned, well packaged, beautiful escape into a foreign world with compelling music, art, and narration. There’s no real added benefits to playing it on the Xbox One besides a few more achievements, but then again, it doesn’t really need any upgrades. It’s fairly perfect as it stands.

    If you have never played Bastion before then this is a must buy. It’s beautiful, sad and a great journey with some fun Diablo type gameplay and neat surprises along the way.

    The combat might never feel as clever as the visuals and narration but this is still an engrossing and distinctive action role-player.

    Amazing art direction is all I can say. From the music to the visuals, from the story to the characters who inhabit it, everything spellsAmazing art direction is all I can say. From the music to the visuals, from the story to the characters who inhabit it, everything spells "awesome".
    I finished it, and immediately went for a second run of the game.
    Now, can we get all the other games from SuperGiant on Xbox please?

    Una excelente aventura isométrica con un apartado artístico y sonoro excelente .
    El principio es engañoso ya que ha medida que vas avanzando

    El principio es engañoso ya que ha medida que vas avanzando tanto la historia como el gameplay gana muchísimos enteros.

    Bastion was a fun little game, pretty animation with a simple but engaging storyline, the controls were spot on, the soundtrack was lovely, IBastion was a fun little game, pretty animation with a simple but engaging storyline, the controls were spot on, the soundtrack was lovely, I recommend playing it, if there were more to the game I would score it higher but it's pretty straightforward. Just a bite sized piece of well made entertainment, nothing extraordinary. Expand

    Another irritating narrator talking all the time, trying to provoke some kind of tension with a annoying pace of voice. Like Transistor.Another irritating narrator talking all the time, trying to provoke some kind of tension with a annoying pace of voice. Like Transistor. Apparently, SG Games only knows how to do that. Thank God in this game you can shut him up in settings. Besides this, it's an average action RPG with nothing really new. I know some people would like it, but it's not that much for me. Expand
