Bastion’s story starts off as a mystery to the player and is revealed piece by piece as you progress. So as not to spoil too much, I’ll just provide a brief overview. An apocalypse of some kind called the Calamity occurred tearing asunder the city...

When I beat Bastion for the first time, I reloaded my save and played through for the second ending. When that was done, I started my new game plus. I'm not the repeat type of gamer, but Bastion's leveling, weapon upgrades, and difficulty tweaks are...

Bastion is Supergiant Games' first title, an action RPG with a unique presentation. It's been making waves over on Xbox LIVE Arcade for about a month, and now the PC release has been topping the Steam chart for a few days since launch. Naturally, it's...

It was just about this time last month when I was reviewing this great little game on the Xbox 360 called Bastion. Chances are you’ve already heard some buzz on this game or perhaps you’ve already read my 360 review. Regardless; the game has been...

Pros: Fun narrative concept; great art direction; an armory of engaging weapons with a well-implemented upgrade mechanic.

Cons: The actual driving plot isn't terribly interesting once it gets rolling; not a whole lot to bring you back once you beat it.

International Review By PCMweb on 100

Bastion is een absolute aanrader voor liefhebbers van old school actie-rpg's. De game is verslavend, leuk en je kan het zo moeilijk maken als je zelf wilt. Daarnaast is ook de prijs nog eens super. Voor nog geen 14 euro heb je dit juweeltje in...

International Review By Zeitgeist Game Review on

When Bastion was released a few weeks back, I heard comments like “Best Game Ever” and “Must Buy”! Well that obviously got my attention considering I’d not even yet heard of this title. While I may not freak out as much about it as others have, I am...

International Review By Skillpoint on 100

Kalla mig gammalmodig men jag gillar inte den trend många spel hakar på där de desperat måste apa efter explosiva Hollywood-produktioner där jag spenderar lika mycket tid att stirra på regissörens filmdrömmar som jag faktiskt interagerar med verket....
