Bastion Review │ Twinfinite

Bastion at its core is a relatively simple hack and slash style adventure game. It’s a simple game with simple mechanics which might sound like it’s boring or just a standard Zelda style clone, but that’s where you’d be wrong. You play as “The Kid” as you beat up cute monsters with things like a hammer, repeater, bow and other standard weapon types. While it may not offer anything new to the genre from a combat perspective, it certainly does what it has as well as anyone could ask for with solid controls and a static camera set up in an isometric view. What really brings this game alive is the backing soundtrack, the narration and the art style which you come to expect with indie titles like Bastion. (Bastion, PC, Supergiant Games) 4/5
