Chris Morton: Dust: An Elysian Tale is definitely a special case in so many fashions. It is a game that, by all conventions, should never have seen the light of day, yet here we are playing it. Dean Dodrill (the one man behind the majority of the game) has truly crafted a love-letter to gamers that should be experienced by all. If you have a passion for action games, the Metroidvania style or just gorgeous animation in general, you need to play this game. It is definitely packed and more than worth the price of admission, and it is quite possibly my favorite XBLA game to come out this year. This is what Summer of Arcade was designed for."
