Going into playing Dust: An Elysian Tail, I knew very few things. First off, it was an RPG, which normally for me is an iffy area. I have so many uncompleted Final Fantasy games, and I normally get bored with the stories before they get started. Secondly, I knew that it was a side-scroller. Once again, I’ve never really gotten into side-scrollers.
Dust: An Elysium Tail is a combination of both of those two elements and works fantastically well. Throw in a really well done plot line that kept me coming back for more, a great set of voice actors, visuals that are top-notch and it perhaps comes out of the Summer of Arcade as the best game of the lot.
