Dust: An Elysian Tail Review - Telegraph

With its gloriously pretty aesthetic, ferocious combat, bubbly anthropomorphic characters and dark --often grim-- narrative, Dust is a fascinating combination. While the painterly style and 2D side-scrolling action most immediately recalls Muramasa: The Demon Blade, its visual language is Hayao Miyazaki meets Saturday morning cartoons. Japan's master animator's otherworldy wonder filters into the 2D world of Fale; lush greenland with grand statues reaching for the blue skies gives way to dark caverns, punctuated with silence and effervescent pink foliage. Meanwhile, your flying nimbat companion Fidget could be a distant relative of Snarf from the Thundercats. (Dust: An Elysian Tail, Xbox 360) 4/5
