Dalton Miller from Fate of the Game says: "For me, Dust: An Elysian Tail is one of those magical experiences that have come along only a handful of times in my short time on this planet. It seems like no matter what aspect of Dust I tried to form some semblance of criticism against, I could not levy the complaint. This game is by far one of, if not the, most polished and balanced games I have had the pleasure of playing in recent memory. Everything, and I mean everything, in Dust is so complete, focused, and masterfully executed that when you remember that one man made 90 percent of this game, it’s nigh unbelievable. Dean Dodrill is the maestro behind Dust: An Elysian Tail, and I have no issue name-dropping him in this review, as he heartily deserves it. Play this game."
