Original Gamer: "Every now and then, there is a game that isn’t unique for its gameplay mechanics, but how it presents itself. Where many RPGs are bogged down in long and drawn out cutscenes, Bastion takes a different approach by having a booming narrator describe the action as it happens. The result is a storybook feel that keeps you in the action, much like the presentation of a game like Half-Life. The narrator is a deep and booming voice with a bit of that country accent. It’s like having a book on tape being played over the game, and it does wonders for immersing you into the world of Bastion."
