[h1]Review zu Bastion[/h1]

Bastion hatte ich schon seit Ewigkeiten auf meiner Wunschliste. Immer mal wieder ist das Spiel mir bei größeren Steamsales aufgefallen. Hauptsächlich deshalb, weil es dann meistens im Schnitt für 3€ erhältlich war. Allerdings habe ich mich nie dazu durch gerungen es mir letztendlich doch zu kaufen. Ein anderes Spiel mit ähnlichem Fall war Dust: An Elysian Tail. Ich war damals von diesem doch eher spontanen Kauf positiv überrascht und habe vor dem Kauf von Bastion gehofft das Gleiche wieder zu schaffen. Habe ich also mit Bastion für mich einen Überraschungshit gefunden?
Nein, eher nicht.
Mein erster negativer Eindruck war schon, als das Spiel meinen Xbox 360-Controller nicht entdeckt hatte. Zumindest teilweise nicht. Bestätigen und Zurück konnte ich tätigen, nicht aber navigieren... Also habe ich es dann gelassen und mit Maus&Tastatur gespielt. Diese Art der Steuerung hat etwas Eingewöhnungszeit benötigt, war aber dann gegen Ende doch recht angenehm.
Mein größtes Problem mit Bastion ist die Art und Weise wie sich das Spiel präsentiert. Wenn man jetzt lediglich die Ästhetik des Spiels betrachtet und sich als potenzieller Käufer fragt wie sich die Musik dazu anhören würde, würde man definitiv nicht auf - sagen wir mal etwas - härtere Musik schließen. Das Gleiche gilt für den Erzähler dessen Stimme viel zu rauchig wirkte, um zur Ästhetik des Spiels zu passen. Es wird im allgemeinen alles auch viel schlimmer dargestellt, als... nun ja, dargestellt, weil die Ästhetik des Spiels recht kindlich wirkt (was definitiv nichts Verwerfliches ist, es nur leider an mancher Stelle fehl am Platz war) Anders gesagt: Wenn der Erzähler von einer rauen Gegend spricht, man aber Farbenvielfalt pur sieht, so wirkt das unglaubwürdig. Eine raue Gegend sieht für mich anders aus.
Für mich persönlich war das ein großer Stimmungskiller. Anfangs jedenfalls.
Irgendwann nahm dann die Geschichte an Fahrt auf, wenn dann neue Charaktere hinzukommen und man weiter und weiter spielt. Alles schön und gut, aber dennoch habe ich immer diesen Stimmungskiller als faden Beigeschmack gehabt. Man sagt ja schließlich nicht umsonst, dass der erste Eindruck der wichtigste ist. Das gilt auch für Videospiele.
Andere Spieler werden wahrscheinlich nicht ihren Fokus daraufgelegt haben. Ich allerdings schon. Weshalb ich das Spiel generell nicht so gut fand, wie manch anderer.

Kommen wir für die Schnellen unter uns einfach mal zur Pro-Contra-Liste:

Pro:

+ Die gemalte Ästhetik ist wunderschön. Richtig farbenfroh mit vielen Farben und Formen zugleich auf dem Bildschirm
+ Der Cursor (bei der Steuerung mit Maus&Tastatur) hat interessanterweise einen Schatten. Ich fand das irgendwie faszinierend und wollte es nur mal erwähnt sehen
+ Kontern macht sehr viel Spaß, sofern es mal gelingt (was nicht schwer zu meistern ist)
+ Einige Waffen fand ich recht spaßig zu benutzen
+ Fesselnde Geschichte, die allerdings bei mir etwas gebraucht hat, um in Fahrt zu kommen
+ Viele Gegner verlangen ein Umdenken der eigenen Spielweise, wenn auch nur geringfügig
+ Mir gefiel es, dass der Level von oben herunterstürzt und sich so quasi zusammenbaut
+ Cutscenes sind wunderschön gemalt

Contra:

- Das Spiel erkennt meinen Xbox 360-Controller nicht einwandfrei
- Es gibt SEHR viele Übersetzungsfehler!
- Die Flugbahn der eigenen abfeuerbaren Projektile ergeben irgendwie keinen Sinn. Es sieht so aus, als würde ich einen Gegner treffen können, doch dem ist irgendwie nicht der Fall

Prontra:

+- Das Intro mit den Firmenlogos lässt sich nicht vorspulen
+- Die Erzählerstimme hätte mir mehr gefallen, wenn sie etwas märchenhafter gewesen wäre
+- Content abseits der Hauptgeschichte war uninteressant und von mir kaum angerührt
+- Einige Gegner verschießen sehr kleine Projektile die schwer zu erkennen sind. Besonders in der Hitze des Gefechts

Bastion war nicht das Überraschungsmeisterwerk, das ich gerne gehabt hätte, ist dennoch aber noch ein gutes Spiel, wenn auch etwas kurz, besonders, wenn man Achievements und Nebenaktivitäten, so wie ich, auslässt. Kann gerne im Vollpreis gekauft werden, sofern man gewillt ist, alles im Spiel durchzuspielen. Ansonsten würde ich auf einen günstigen Sale warten. Immerhin gibt es das Spiel dann ja schon mal für rund 3€.

Ich danke fürs Lesen und wünsche sehr viel Spaß beim Spielen! ;-)

After getting all the achievements and finishing the game multiple times I feel responsible for leaving at least a review for this little masterpiece.

Pro:
- Amazing Soundtrack and music. (I even listen to it in my freetime)
- Unique and interestings characters
- Nice story
- Very nice and fitting art style
- Easy controls
- Gameplay

Contra:
- Can be too short if you want only one playthrough and don't care for achievements

If you still haven't played it, Bastion is totally worth it. In doubt just buy it on sale and get ultra value.

Bastion an sich ist schön gemacht aber was es wirklich derart einzigartig und bewegend macht ist die Musik und wie die Handlung erzählt wird. Die Musik ist so gut und wird derart genial eingesetzt um genau das richtige Gefühl, die richtige Stimmung in einem aus zu lösen. Dahingehend könnten sich viele Games ein Beispiel an Bastion nehmen da Musik so viel ausmacht um wirklich etwas im Spiel zu empfinden, was aber die meisten Games schlicht ignorieren. Bastion stellt beispielhaft zur Schau wie Musik in einem Spiel eingesetzt werden muss und wie man dies mit der Geschichte verknüpft.

Offensichtlich gehöre ich zu den wenigen Leuten, denen das Spiel keinen Spaß gemacht hat.
Die Geschichte fand ich langweilig, die monotone, melancholische Stimme des so sehr gelobten Erzählers hat mich bald genervt, Das Gameplay war uninspiriert, wobei ich ohnehin kein großer Fan von Achtion-RPGs bin. Nach 2 Stunden hatte ich das Gefühl, alles im Spiel gesehen zu haben.

Nach 4 Stunden habe ich ziemlich enttäuscht aufgehört und mich gefragt, warum Bastion so sehr geliebt wird.

In my ongoing and likely futile effort to write a Steam review for every game in my library (#196 out of 555)... it's time for Bastion.

The first time I played Bastion, I was distinctly underwhelmed. The storytelling was not particularly engaging to me, and the novelty of the narrator reflecting on the players' actions quickly wore off. I was left with the impression that most of the critical acclaim was coming from people who simply hadn't played very many games, and hand't yet caught on to the narrative potential of the medium. Almost 10 years later, the opinion remains largely unchanged. Bastion is a solid ARPG that's a bit rough around the edges mechanically, despite a very high level of visual polish, and is much more focused on storytelling than is common for the genre, with an omnipresent narrator commenting on (very nearly) your every action.

All that said, I didn't find the story being told to be particularly engaging. Developer Supergiant Games seems to have a very particular narrative style, and it doesn't do much for me. It's fine, I suppose. Serviceable. But a bit long-winded and unsubtle, if that makes sense. More plot-driven than character-driven is the best way to put it, I think, and I've always preferred character-driven stories. The various twists and turns also tend to be pretty heavily telegraphed, which lessens the eventual impact.

The game itself, like Supergiant's other offerings, is very competently constructed. But the main draw here isn't the game itself, exactly, but rather the experience of playing it. If you divorce the gameplay from the story, there's really nothing special or memorable here. In other words, it's a game worth playing once, but not worth revisiting, unless you want to reread the book, so to speak.

Note: also played on Nintendo Xbox 2 and Nintendo Switch.

This is probably one the most iconic videogames from this decade in terms of its aesthetic and rightfully so. It presents itself as a brawler with an intereseting world in a visually and musically engaing world. Seriously though, the soundtrack is well worth obtaining. I lost count of the number of times I had it as background music qhile doing something else. Plus, as the story ends I believe I recommend finishing the main story at least once.
My only gripe with it would be the difficulty of some of its achievements, since I spent way to much time on a particular one. However, that could also be my lack of expertise, who knows. Either way, game's cool, no wonder it put its developers on the map.

There are so few games out there that will completely blow you away and leave you in a state of shock. I had heard about this game and I know I'm late, but I went into the game not knowing what to expect. Holy moly. I couldn't put my controller down. I finished the game in a day (which is completely doable hehe) and sat in silence during the credits. The play style, story, art, and music all synergistically created an actual perfect experience. I doubt that I will encounter as many gaming experiences as I did with this game. 10000/10.

Story and soundtrack are talked about enough, so I'll discuss gameplay. Bastion is a linear, but highly replayable action RPG. Super customizable loadouts mean that the game can be adapted to any playstyle too. All about fast attacks? Hit your enemies with the machete and dual pistols. Prefer some reach? This game comes with a wide selection. What about up close and slow? All ranged? Yes and yes. Once you have general loadouts suited to your liking, you can monkey around with whether you want armor piercing abilities, high damage, quick ammo recharge, or even whether you want some weapons to function better as melee or as thrown. What about challenge? Yep, the game can deliver there too if you'd like. If you play games for the story, read any other review and they will tell you that Bastion is for you. If you think the story is just the icing on the cake for fun gameplay, then I'm telling you that Bastion is for you. It's enjoyable, highly customizable, and it practically runs on anything. Highly recommended.

Simply said tedious, the game gets extremely easy after a few upgrade
The soundtrack is good and the combat is fine but overall lacks anything to get the player really involved
Parrying is a joke, requires you to block at the end of the windup and not during the actual attack frames

Play Transistor instead

SGG has a knack for mixing isometric action with worldbuilding and art, and Bastion is no exception. The world is literally being built as you walk in it, meaning you don't see most threats until you get up close to them.

Bastion is an indie action RPG with an isometric perspective that places the player in a scenario of destruction.

An agile combat system that requires a lot of skill from the player combines with a robust customization mode, creating a memorable experience, even in a relatively limited format.

Highlighting also for the details of the game, which offers a beautiful visual environment, a satisfying soundtrack and an engaging narrative (a complex and heavy story) with a unique narrator who will tell all events in a very creative and human way.

In conclusion, although Bastion is an excellent gaming experience overall, the game can become a little boring.

I do recommend, but with caveats.
The moment to moment gameplay is largely boring. It is very standard isometric hack and slash/ shooting. There is very little that was compelling to it.
But that's not why you play the game. You play it for its amazing art, outstanding soundtrack, unique way of telling its narrative, and the fact that you learn the main characters backstory by doing drugs. And if that is enough to hold your interest give it a shot.

Bastion is an amazing RPG game with a surprising hardcore feel and unmatched narration that is yet to be topped to this day.

Combat - This game has amazingly smooth movement which is lucky because you are really going to need to master it if you want to have a nice time. The combat always feels fair and gives the player a sense of reward when they defeat even a small enemy. Saying this, the game rarely becomes overwhelming, only intense.

Level Design- IMO the levels have a very unique style and theme, while avoiding becoming repetitive and stale at any point The levels have such charm and give you the greatest feeling of exploration and discovery that you could possibly want. [spoiler] The game features 3 types of levels. -Ordinary Levels - Weapon Trials - Memories. These all feel very different from each other and allows some one like me (always change how i'm feeling with regards to what I want to do in a game) to always something that I want to do. [/spoiler]

Narration- Where do I even start with this game's narration.... Not only is his voice perfect for this game, his voice is reactive to what you do in game giving you the feeling that there is actually someone narrating your game play. It is just amazing. I would recommend this game purely on this dudes voice... even if the game play sucked..

Story- So for how much I want to be the guy who can sit and play a game for 1000 hours just for the story immersion, its just not me i'm afraid. This game does it perfect for someone like me. It makes a lot of the story discovery optional and even then it is fairly minimal. Most of the story is explained through narration as you are playing which means a speed junkie like me can experience the game at my own pace and not have to suffer not knowing what is going on because I don't to watch more cut scene than I play/

This game is Incredible. [spoiler] The only issue I had with the game was the ending. Only because it becomes somewhat of a side scroller which drags by the end and means that the game peaks at the penultimate level, rather than the final level which doesn't feel right. I was pleasantly surprised with the choice the game gives you at the end which was a nice touch of freedom for the player. [/spoiler]

Overall I would give this game a solid 9/10 and would definitely recommend it, full price and can just dream of a Bastion 2 in the near future.

The soundtrack alone was and is already worth the money. The graphics are great and there's plenty to explore in terms of the story, definitely has replay worth imo just to get the whole story/think on some of the details as you go through it.

As a new person to playing games/casual player, this was pretty friendly in terms of game play. It took some time for me to get used to the controls and how the attacks worked, but still not hard to get through the levels even if fumbling (which I did a lot).

Will forever have a spot in my favorites. Especially the soundtrack.

I think not writing a review would not do justice to this game. So let me start why I like this game. First thing which got me attracted to the game is art. I mean the visuals. Myself having a drawing hobby i could not look away from the game. Second thing is the music. I did not know that this game has such great music (I always try to make my own mid on things.). That was it for me. It formed a combination like you have with beer and salted chips. I wont write about the story as it would spoil the experience for many people but one thing I could tell you that this was the second time I have had such a great experience in narration after HxH chimera saga (or I would like to think so). And the last thing I want to tell you that having a 2012 era potato laptop, recently I could not even run few games (for which I was really frustrated) in decent setting. But behold this game runs smoother that you could think of anything like. No FPS drops , clear combat system (only problem I think I faced with your cursor pointer and dashed aims not matching with each other for which i needed to get used to it). As the review suggests I think they are true and honest. This game is Overwhelmingly recommended.

It's Supergiant's first game, one that started it all. How does it hold up in 2020?

It's pretty neat. It set up all the gameplay functions that we can see in Supergiant's next games - the weapon upgrades, the player controlled difficulty system, the enemy types, the overwhelming amount of voice lines for just about any interaction, the wonderful artstyle and music that's specific to each game... It all works!
It creates a seamless experience that the player can tailor to his taste - make it easier, make it harder, pick any kind of weapon and individually upgrade it, all while the narrator comments on the protagonist's choices. If you want to complete some side challenges, they're there. If you want to just focus on the story, the game doesn't put the ending behind any kind of wall.

Suffice it to say, it was amazing 7.6 hours. And it only gets better from here when it comes to Supergiant.

Consistently one of the most understandable combat systems in my library, with narration and music that make the experience immersive and beautiful. Even on playthrough....6? Hands down one of my favorite games ever played.

Fantastic game! Amazing artstyle, great and funny at times narrative, very easy to immerse yourself into the story and world thanks to it. Gameplay is great, lots of different weapons, and abilities you can mix up for different type of builds. Difficulty can be adjusted up to your liking, unlike most games though you don't really pick difficulty before game begins, there is easy and normal of course, but difficulty really comes from game itself actually. You find shrine in game fairly early on that allow you to add up to 10 interesting modifiers some more annoying than others, but overall nice for those who want extra challenge.

Soundtrack is one of the best I've heard, really fits the game levels and world, in fact probably one of the best things about the game!

I can't really say that there was anything I really disliked about the game, but that's just me, it didn't feel too grindy or stale at any point, it just kept getting better towards the end.

I'm just surprised I haven't played this before until now, if you've had it for a while like me, or plan on getting it, definitely give it a shot.

I'll give it 10/10

Supergiant produced an masterpiece on their first attempt as a new indie studio which is an incredible feat. Bastion's story is about restoring your city after a calamity has struck it with an satisfying end to it. The gameplay is surprisingly addictive to the point that i even completed the optional weapon challenge levels which I generally skip in other games. The main character himself does not speak but the story is told through the narrator's (Rucks) perspective whom you meet in your journey. The voice acting of the narrator is one of the best i have ever heard in video games (He is low key the Morgan Freeman of video games) and the games is worth experiencing for his comments alone since he does so on every thing you do in-game. The music is top-notch which you will be familiar with if you have played any of the other games Supergiant have made. This is an indie classic and a must play for all indie game fans.

I might not have many hours on this game atm, but that's mainly because my experience with this game was on another steam account owned by my cousin. I enjoyed the game so much, it's story was so well-defined. It wasn't until recently that I won a copy of this game in a chance giveaway. I'm really looking forward to playing this game through to completion once more.

[H1]Introduction[/H1]
Bastion and I had a rocky history. I started playing it in 2012, but I had to restart from the beginning once, and abandon it mid-game at least twice for various reasons. The times when I wanted to resume playing, I either got distracted by new game titles or by games in my ever-growing backlog. So, you can imagine how foreign Bastion felt to me when I continued from where I left off 8 years ago. Yet, I’m glad I took the time to relearn it because this is one of the most satisfying video games I’ve played.

[H1]What the Game Did Well[/H1]
Bastion is simply superb. I’m still kicking myself for waiting this long to resume playing. I simply love its balanced gameplay, engaging writing, stunning graphics, and atmospheric soundtrack. Rarely do I feel games achieve excellence in these areas in equal measure, but this game certainly does.

GAMEPLAY
Bastion is a very accessible and well-balanced game. The learning and difficulty curves are reasonable, and the game makes sure you’d always what you need to complete a level. There’s a wide variety of weapons, each with different combination of speed, strength, and range, to choose from to cater to diverse playing styles. You can also equip swappable Spirits that grant ability-enhancing bonuses to offset any disadvantage you may have from your weapon loadout or skill level. You can tell that the developers didn’t design the game to frustrate players, but to challenge them enough that they’ll simply have fun.

While Bastion is easy to learn, it’s also hard to master. You won’t need to have full mastery to enjoy or complete it, but the developers have put in features to satisfy players who seek more challenges. There’re the optional Proving Grounds and alternate dimension skill testing areas for earning extra XPs, upgrades, and bonuses. Also built into the main story is the Shrine, where you can invoke Idols to boost enemies’ abilities, making the game even more difficult. In exchange, you’ll get to earn additional XPs and currency.

It’s a relief that Bastion doesn’t punish players if they just want to play the game for the story. There’s no need for mindless or frustrating grinding to level up. Just changing up your weapon loadout and equipped Spirits can significantly improve your chances in completing the occasional challenging levels.

WRITING/STORY
Although there’re many levels in Bastion, none of them are too long. The longer stages are broken into discrete, visually different, and manageable parts. While this certainly helps with pacing and sustaining interest, much of the latter can be attributed to the charming writing by Greg Kasavin. The mystery around the Calamity that destroyed Caelondia, and the purpose of the Bastion are slowly and thoughtfully unfolded. All the while, the game is narrated dynamically, as if the narrator is telling a tale of your adventures to an invisible audience.

It’s this dynamic narration that makes Bastion unique. It provides background information on places you visit, people you meet, and enemies you fight. Because of that, you truly feel like the star of the story because little things you do, such as changing your weapons mid-level, breaking random objects in your surroundings, and getting knocked around by enemies, get different commentaries. It’s to the designers’ credit that these narrations never feel forced or intrusive; they are perfect accompaniment to the action and quiet moments on screen.

At the same time, what makes the narration outstanding is the voice actor, Logan Cunningham. His performance is equally mysterious, comforting and imposing, adding to the enchanting yet enigmatic atmosphere. His voice is so synonymous with Bastion that it’s hard to imagine playing the game without hearing it.

GRAPHICS
The graphics in Bastion are gorgeous. Lead artist Jen Zee’s use of hard lines, bright colours, and watercolour painting style gives the game a mature fairytale aesthetics. Depending on the level, her art also conveys senses of wonder, foreboding, and isolation to great effect. It’s refreshing that Bastion is not set in Tolkien-esque locations or dark dungeons. The world of Bastion is a mix of fairytale fantasy and western, with a hint of steampunk. The art style and world design make this game stand out among its peers.

MUSIC
The music by composer Darren Korb is mesmerizing. It’s a mix of guitar country and blues, with touches of World music, strings and electronic here and there. This amalgamation of music genres fits the various elements and styles that inspired Bastion. It’s so good that I ended up getting the soundtrack, something I don’t do often.

[H1]What the Game Could Have Done Better[/H1]
In one early stage, some floor tiles would fall beneath you if you stayed on them for too long. For some reason, my character respawned right on the same spot where the floor tile had collapsed, resulting in an almost endless loop of falling and losing health. This only happened in this one level, and no other stages with similar collapsing floor. That was annoying considering how Bastion pretty much did everything else so well.

[H1]What the Game Did Poorly[/H1]
Nothing. Bastion is a near perfect game.

[H1]Final Thoughts[/H1]
I knew Bastion would be a great game given how much praise professional, amateur and casual game reviewers had given it. Everything about the game is so balanced, with no one aspect outshining the other. All elements work in such harmony with each other that Bastion is truly satisfying to play. It’s one of those rare games that is pleasing mechanically, narratively, visually and musically. I still can’t believe it took me 8 years to finally get back into and finishing Bastion. While it’s worth the wait, I won’t recommend you waiting as long as I did to (re)play it.

This isn't my type of game. I got it because it was on discount and it seemed pretty cool. But I just don't really like it that much. Why am I leaving a positive review? Because I can see that it is good, despite not playing much. Nice music, graphics, all around a good game. It's not my style, but I can see that it's a good game. I'm not going to give it a negative review just because it's not my kind of game.

Beautiful indie game.

As expected from Supergiant Games, they do not disappoint.
I loved Transistor but Bastion blew my mind.

Now off to finishing Pyre and then playing the new Hades from Supergiant Games.

About Hades, even Jim Sterling praised the game, so you know it is a win in the current abhorrent game industry!

The offered variety of weapons and upgrades made for a lot of play styles felt really well made. The controls were reliable but the hitbox of monsters was confusing at first, since it was their standpoint and not their width. The story was good, simple. A sigil of linear gameplay.

I enjoyed the story and the final decision; so much so I didn't want to replay it to get the other ending because of how the game made me feel about choosing what I had chosen.
Just recently re-played it to get 100% and I believe that, even though it is quite old at this point, it is still very worth it. The DLC challenges ARE not easy (imo) so if you like a challenge I definitely recommend it.

This is where the great journey of Supergiant Games started, and it feels good to see them where they're at now.

If I say that Bastion has the best voice-over narration ever in video game history, it won't be an exaggeration. The soundtrack is just mesmerizing and matches so well with the godlike narration by Logan Cunningham. The art style is beautiful as every other Supergiant's games has. The ending is sure to put tears in your eyes.

The game is fairly short, but the NG+ option offers replayability and considering the price it's totally worth it.

At this point in time I have played all of supergiant's games except Hades (I know I'm getting on that soon). Anyways, they're all phenomenal for various reasons. Bastion combines a satisfying and just deep enough combat system with a story that keeps you hooked, characters that keep you invested, and some of the best audio that has ever blessed my ears. The narration and soundtrack have already been lauded so I won't dwell much more on that. The story asks you to make some complex ethical questions that don't necessarily have right or wrong answers, and aren't shoved into a binary morality system. Long story short- play bastion. Also don't make the mistake I did, play it with a controller

[h1]TL;DR[/h1]
A title of major importance for the evolution of indie games. Bastion is the debut of Supergiant Games and for good reason. It combined great isometric gameplay with a a cryptic story and a charming artstyle.

[h1]This Game Is Old, Aren’t Their New Games Better?[/h1]
Bastion is already 9 years old (as of me writing this review) and it shows at certain aspects:
It is a little more clunky than the later titles from the same developer. Bastion is slower paced and feels conventional at times, but also very surreal and like a niche product.
Honestly: Nowadays it would not directly click with me from just seeing it in Steam and my initial playthrough was incredibly rushed and as such I missed the actual well designed core. It may not seem outstanding, but Bastion is well polished and has it’s own merits.


[h1]Recreating Atmosphere in a Bottle[/h1](This is a link to a picture)

Thematic rich areas have become a staple of video games. The immersion should not break in any capacity as the session will be way more engaging, if you do not need to up your suspension of disbelief every second. And the world of Bastion has clear rules it follows and that is really interesting to pay attention to. Areas are divided in earth shards that flow around and have a somewhat specific theme. You can realize how the world changed and became different after the event of the calamity. And everything seems logical, if you are willing to puzzle through.

[h1]What a Story[/h1]
Storywise Supergiant Games used a well known concept (the apocalypse), but gave it their own spin. A narrator exists within the game that comments whatever happens and is cleverly used to describe your surroundings and makes it possible to deliver some powerful lines.
Like:[spoiler]They didn’t make it.[/spoiler]
These makes the characters more believable and the focus on a small cast makes it more personal. Everyone has his own distinct background and they are indeed driven by their past.
And this combines with the superb gameplay.

[h1]The Actual Game[/h1]
The gameplay is centered around the idea that there once was a somewhat realistic world that got broken down and you salvage what you can to survive. Every weapon you pick once belonged to someone else and was used before, they have their own stories to tell. Every mechanic except respawning is explained by the lore. The isometric perspective combined with the colorful arsenal and your big arsenal make it possible to absolutely have a blast.
Despite that enemy variance is not that high, but they fit into their respective areas and are challenging you in specific ways. Like testing your positioning with enemies in a small room that have AoE attacks and you have to plan how you are moving. Your arsenal includes many weapons, my favorite combination was a mortar (because I love big explosions) and a pike (because spears are the meta weapon in RL). . Many more different weapons exist and are all well balanced, nothing feels not viable.
And if you are seeking difficulty: try to activate all 10 difficulty conditions. These are incredibly

[h1]Things That Aged Badly[/h1]
The game does feel a little sluggish and the restriction to not replay stages in Story mode makes sense from story-perspective, but farming currency in just a limited number of areas is just not fun. Also needing to rebuild certain buildings every single run is incredibly annoying and makes New Game Plus really off-paced. And the game is somewhat short, if you do not aim for challenge runs, you will not get much out of this game (in terms of playtime), but Bastion is really cheap on sales and absolutely worth it.

[h1]Fanboy Spoilers I Want to Discuss (Only read after the story)[/h1]
[spoiler]
I absolutely enjoyed two scenes in particular: The moment you defend the Bastion with your animals is absolutely great and earns praise. This is their home too and you already became a family. Them defending it with all their power was a great conclusion to something I had thought to be a gimmick.
The second one is when you can safe Zulf and the Ura decide to stop attacking you and when someone breaks that quiet convention, the Ura stop him and let you pass. They are not evil and an act of kindness was something that could make a difference. Even this harsh world has humanity to offer and this is a great message.[/spoiler]


[h1]Conclusion[/h1]
A somewhat timeless game that works perfectly fine and has great and well thought-out battles to offer, woven into an engaging story. A great game that should absolutely be played.

Zitat:

To be a little more direct: As of now meme curators dominate Steam. So consider following me for reviews that actually cost me some time (and effort) to create. I do not know, if this will change much, but the majority of my readers are not followers (I think? I just imitated a Youtuber I enjoy watching). I am still going to pump my heart into this reviews.

I'm glad that I finally decided to give this game a shot.
As I first played Hades, I see a lot of resemblance in the Bastion. Great mechanics, interesting lore, unbelievably good music and sound FX. It looks just like a thing that Supergiant Games know how to do - great games with no drawbacks at all.
There is a possibility to adjust the difficulty as you see fit - there's no-sweat mode plus there's a feature to make normal mode harder on the go (again, Hades is similar in that regard, but no spoilers here). I'd say it's quite challenging on max difficulty and I'm sure it will take some time and failed attempts to master the game and get all achievements.
It's a small game, but worth every penny. Big props to the Supergiant Games, they are my idols now.

This, out of all the games I've played and truly enjoyed, stands strong at the top of my list - the game that's had the most emotional impact for me. The gem in my eyes of Supergiant Games, it has always been a blast to even return to, to hunt for the little secrets I've missed, the achievements I've aimed for, and the challenges I've set for myself.

The voice for Rucks, Logan Cunningham, drives the story on with this special, solemn charm, with bits of human to go along too, and has definitely by far been my favourite voice to hear for narration. The other voices which are heard further into the game are just as beautiful, and the gameplay is just as fun.

Playing as The Kid, pushing through the Calamity, I can't help but put myself in his shoes, as well as feel for all the characters and everything they go through. Bastion is probably also the game that's made me legitimately cry - a lot.

[h1]Lie on my back
Clouds are makin' way for me
I'm comin' home, sweet home
~Darren Korb, Setting Sail, Coming Home[/h1]

In my reviews I often talk about just how many developers treat their games like products. Well, technically, those are the products, of course, but... you can't create anything really beautiful just by doing your job. If you'll do your job good enough, you may come up with a really good product, but that'll be just that. A product. While we all know that video games can be... something more than that. Much more. When Miller brothers started creating their MYST? It wasn't because they wanted to make a popular game. Heck, they weren't even gamers. They just had that certain vision and they really wanted to turn it into reality. To share it with the others. To let the others dive into it and experience it together. And it's not just words. You can clearly feel such things. From Westwood Studious' magical worlds of The Legend of Kyrandia and Lands of Lore to Cyberdreams's I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream, based on Harlan Ellison's short story. That certain artistic touch? That special something that makes a game more than just a game? As long as you treasure it as much as I do, I want to introduce you to one of my most favorite independent developers. Please, welcome – Supergiant Games.

First of all, Supergiant Games is a pretty small studio that only has about 20 employees. But what they achieve in their field is absolutely amazing. Every three years they release a game. And every time it's something different. Entirely different. They never make sequels, spin-offs, or stuff like that. Every single time it's an entirely different something in the entirely different genre. And every single time it's... complete. With nothing else to say. Every single time it's a unique experiment. Unique vision for us to experience. It's never anything big (all of their games can be beaten in less than ten hours), it's never anything groundbreaking, but every single time it's an absolutely unique experience. A unique journey with an extreme level of the atmosphere.

Did you ever experience one of those lucid dreams? You know, one of those that you can control? Supergiant Games are among those very few companies that can re-create such experience. By combining unusual gameplay elements, strange worlds filled with mystery and godlike music (we'll return to Darren Korb a little bit later) they create something absolutely magical. Something that consumes you entirely. So, in the end you don't just beat their games. You wake up from them. And then you find yourself just sitting there, staring at the screen, thinking about what you've just experienced. That's what they do. That's the magic of Supergiant.

Now, let's talk about this exact game. Bastion... Guess, I'll never forget the day I've experienced it for the first time on my Xbox 360. See, the Bastion was the very first game the guys ever released. So, I honestly didn't expect anything from it. For me, it was just yet another Xbox Live Arcade. Something I've got just because. I mean, it was cheap, it had that anime-like guy on the picture and I was like “Sure, OK. Why not? I need something to waste some time until the Dushonored will come out anyway.” Well... let's just say in a couple of minutes I forgot about the Dishonored. Like I forgot about pretty much everything else. Because this game? It swallowed me whole.

Technically, Bastion is a pretty basic game. It's one of those tiny little console-oriented ARPGs, in which you run forward, kill some monsters, level up and master different weapon types (some basic optional challenges included). So, technically, I can see why some people consider this game to be heavily overrated. But see, you don't just play Bastion. You experience it. Every single screen here is an experience on its own. By playing as a character known only as a Kid, you explore the broken sad world that was destroyed by mysterious Calamity. The world that keeps a lot of secrets, both gameplay and story-wise. And while you will see the elements of the broken world appearing right in front of the Kid, inviting him to explore, Logan Cunningham's deep and charming voice will reveal the new secrets to you. And while you'll learn more and more about the sad origins of Calamity, Darren Korb's godlike music will just... take your breath away.

And no, I'm not exaggerating. As a person who actively play video games since the 80s, I must say that it's not even that easy to impress me anymore. It's just sometimes the music in the game is more than just that stuff that plays on background. Usually, I don't even tend to remember the music from games. But like I said, sometimes the music is... more than just music. Remember Matt Uelmen's Tristram Village theme from Diablo? The one that actually made you want to stay awhile... and listen? Remember Akira Yamaoka's Tender Sugar from Silent Hill: The Room? The one that actually made you feel all the pain? Remember Yutaka Minobe's A Love Suicide from Rule of Rose? That one that made you feel like you're the one who's going mad? That's exactly what we have here. Even though Darren is not as famous as the people I've mentioned above... well, he should be. The music he wrote for this game? It's a masterpiece. And the songs he performed with Ashley Lynn Barrett? Even more so. You know how sometimes the right song begins to play at the right time during a certain scene and the next thing you know is tears making it hard for you to see? Darren's Setting Sail, Coming Home is one of such songs.

So... yeah. Bastion is one of those things I can't recommend enough. It's the game you should not miss. No matter what. With a tiny little “but”. Like I said, you don't just play this game. You experience it. So, before even starting, make sure you have some decent sound output (some proper speakers or headphones) and nothing to distract you. Because if you'll have something to prevent you from diving into the atmosphere here? You risk to end up with just a decent indie ARPG. Pretty short and, well, all the interesting little touches aside (like the world maps appearing from nothing right in front of your hero), pretty basic. Whatever you do? Do not let that happen to you. Make sure you're alone. Dim the lights. Make some coffee. Turn off your cell phone. And disappear in this godlike mix of sad images, heartwarming developments, deep narration and breathtaking music. Bastion? It's a nice example of how video games can be more than just games. Ah, and make sure to buy the complete bundle. You know, the one with the music. Because after you'll wake up from this dream? Buying the soundtrack will be the first thing you'll do. Dixi.

It has great art and some good ideas, sure. But the mechanics get old quickly. Also the gameplay does not feel polished enough to suit the leel of punishment you receive doing mistakes in combat. The fights are numerous but not really entertaining.
I reeaally wanted to play and love this, since I am a fan of Transistor, but I can't. Still giving Hades a shot I think, though

Bastion is an action adventure game with some light RPG elements as well. The combat, story and presentation all come together to create a well-rounded experience that has no major flaws. The game’s biggest weakness is that it can sometimes feel like a jack of all trades without many exceptional moments.

Immediately after starting the game, Bastion’s unique storytelling style becomes apparent. While many narrative games switch off between story sections and gameplay sections, Bastion doesn’t. Instead, the vast majority of storytelling takes place while you play. There are a handful of short cutscenes but they account for maybe 5-10% of the game’s actual plot. The meat of the story is told through dynamic narration, triggered by actions while playing. If you find a new weapon, the narrator will say something to the effect of “The Kid found a new weapon to try out”. Every line flows naturally and rarely seem forced, even though the entire game is tightly scripted. Falling off a ledge might produce a comment, taking heavy damage from a certain enemy, picking up an item, etc. It culminates in a linear story with a relatively large amount of interactivity.

The game’s writing is usually good and occasionally great, although it’s a step below many fantastic games with a narrative focus. It can be cliche at times, but the western inspired aesthetic is a good change of pace from your typical fantasy RPG setting. I wouldn’t say any characters were particularly well developed, but there isn’t anything in the game that stuck out to me as “bad writing”.

Bastion’s western aesthetic carries over into the visuals, with some great enemy designs and beautiful art direction. It’s polished and clean, but with enough attention to detail to prevent it from having a barren, sanitary look. Being a post-apocalyptic setting, it runs the risk of overusing some genre tropes, but by blending it with elements of fantasy and westerns, it feels completely unique, even if it wears its influences on its sleeve.

Bastion’s gameplay is probably it’s most controversial quality. Even among fans of the game, it’s generally considered the weakest part of the game. For me, I actually enjoyed it a fair amount, even though it’s a bit clunky and repetitive. Every weapon is unique, outside of the melee weapons which feel pretty similar to each other. You can change your character’s loadout to have any 2 weapons, regardless of whether they are both guns, both melee weapons, etc. You also get to choose a special ability, although they have limited uses, so you don’t use them as often as your normal weapons. There are also many different buffs that you can equip, and the total number increases as you progress through the game. Overall, there is a good amount of variety in choosing your combat style, but once you find your favorite weapon, not much will change. Most of the ranged enemies have a lot of overlap in terms of combat mechanics, while melee enemies are equally similar to each other. There are a few standout enemies that bring something new to the table, but they make up a small portion of the game. Still, even with all of these issues, Bastion is short enough that I didn’t really mind the repetitiveness because it didn’t overstay its welcome. There is a New Game Plus option after beating the game that allows you to replay the story with all of your unlocks, but I quickly lost interest. It felt like New Game Plus was an afterthought to add replay value, rather than something that was planned from the beginning. Especially given the storytelling style, playing the game a second time with almost no variation doesn’t work well.

I would recommend Bastion to those looking to see where Supergiant Games started out, but it doesn’t hold up as well as their later work. It’s a fun adventure game with a good story and combat, but it excels at nothing and left me wanting more from almost every aspect. If the game seems interesting to you and you keep your expectations in check, most players should come away from Bastion satisfied, especially when it regularly goes on sale for only a few dollars.

8/10

Bastion is what i would like to call a indie masterpiece, for its price youll get something pretty dang amazing.
New gamers just wont understand the essence of this piece of art, brings back the times when games were about having fun and a good story instead of just graphics and massive multiplayer.
This game is awesome.

for me this is the greatest single player narrative game I've ever played.

the gameplay is fun and engaging with a surprising amount of depth, there is a good selection of weapons and unlocks with lots of customisation for how you want to play. the music perfectly blends with the story and the gameplay and the fantastic narration. the characters all feel extremely real and the story is amazing. also this is like one of maybe two games that made me legit cry so thats an instant win in my book.

A nice platform-smasher with a compelling story and a satisfying weapons system. The main pluses are a good, non-linear story, nice soundtrack and the fact hat you get each of your moves narrated to you as you go. Worth picking up in 2021 (and beyond)!

I don't understand this game.
Beautiful drawings, nice narration, meh animations, meh story... i can't stand the gameplay.
Supergiant is a great SH but i tried and played this game three times. Mainly on switch.
It bores me out of my mind, i don't understand where's the appeal.
Is all so sloppy, repetitive, unprecise imho.
I so wanted to like this.

Awesome game even in 2021. Art is simply said master piece. You will enjoy in this game visually from start until finish. Every level is unique and it will encourage you to search for more.

Progress is nice and whole game you have a feeling of getting stronger and better. There is good addition of challenge if you want will nice reward if you opt for that. And game is not short it will take around 10 hours at first completion if you want to see everything and complete the first pass totally.

This is a must play for everyone that like good story and narration combined with perfect graphic design, level of challenge and sense of progress. 10/10

At this point Hades is getting all the attention, but Supergiant has yet to make....even a meh game. Of the three games before Hades, Bastion is unquestionably the best in terms of gameplay.

In a nutshell, Bastion excels because it presents enemies that do exactly one thing that needs exactly one thing to counter it, then throws you an assortment of weapons that don't work well against ALL of them. Yeah, it pioneered the Supergiant Narrative Experience TM, and it's truly reliably pretty for both the eyes and ears, but the game is nothing without its concise, direct, responsive gameplay.

Don't skip this one. It truly is rewarding.

There are some games that play at the edges of your memories years after you have played them. Games that, even when you may run across levels that feel excessively difficult, you want nothing more than to complete it and allow the melancholy-filled satisfaction to flow. Bastion is a pleasing game visually, audibly, and story-wise, with game mechanics that are both challenging and easy to utilize. There are some bumpy rides throughout but nothing that cannot be overcome with some time and focus. There is a smoothness to the pacing that feels right—you go from fast action to a, well, bastion of peace where you recover and steady yourself for the next fight, uncovering and building up an existence for you and…others. The story that unweaves is incredible, with voice talent so compelling that you can’t get the narrator’s voice out of your head. And you won’t want to.

If you are not used to this kind of gameplay but are willing to try it, Bastion is a great introduction. Pick up the soundtrack while you are at it—it is unique.

Bastion is a beautiful action adventure RPG. In Bastion you play as a little kid in a third person prerspective in which you have to fight your way through different levels with different monsters as enemies in order to save the fantasy world. There are also various weapons in the game. The different weapons can be found in the levels. Bastion has a nice soundtrack, the sounds will stay in your head forever. While you play Bastion a very nice voice tells you the story in a great way. I had a lot of fun with bastion and I recommend this game to anyone who is interested in a fantasy RPG. Have fun :D

[h1] Bastion - 9.2/10 [/h1]

Plot and Dialogue: 9.5/10, 10/10
Setting and Art Design: 10/10
Soundtrack: 7.0/10
Graphics: 5.0/10
Gameplay and Sound Design: 9.0/10, 7.0/10

Plot and Dialogue:
The plot of Bastion is presented in a unique manner, with a narrator commenting on your actions in real time, instead of having your character talking in the moment. It's the only game that I've played that has done it in this manner, and it does it extremely well. The dialogue is top notch, without any corny or cringey lines. Each line and word contributes to the greater story at hand. The plot itself seems simple at the beginning, until you start to dive into the environment and the world you are playing in. The ending is especially strong, one of the strongest I've seen.

Setting and Art Design:
The setting and art design is phenomenal in this game, with each level feeling extremely distinct and memorable. Each character also has a great design to them, even though they have the same base model. The various structures, colors, and environments that are all used mesh very well to immerse you in this great world.

Soundtrack:
The soundtrack enhances the scene you are in, with there being some pretty good ones. A majority of the tracks though were mostly forgettable. The ones that were memorable are, In Case of Trouble, A Proper Story, Build That Wall (Zia's Theme), Mother I'm Here (Zulf's Theme), and Setting Sail, Coming Home (End Theme). Each of these tracks are done very well, bringing up the emotions that are needed to convey for each character.

Graphics:
The graphics are not great, but that does not really matter. The game looks good and so I don't really dock the game for anything, graphics wise.

Gameplay and Sound Design:
The gameplay is extremely varied, allowing the player to fine tune the weaponry selection, their tonics, and spells to suit each play style. The level design is linear, but it is still fun and offers some paths that are not on the straight line for the player to explore. The enemy design is also very well done, as each enemy is distinct. The game also introduces different enemies at the end of the game, to keep the player on their toes. That was done well. There are also additional side content that you can do to better master your weapons, but are not mandatory. The sound design has some nice sounds to it as well, each your weapons sounding very distinct. Good on that.

Final Notes:
This game, even though it is about 10 years old now, is still an extremely good game that everyone should play. It isn't long, but offers plenty of replayaability for those that enjoy replayability.

It took me 4 hours of non-stop playing to run through this game smashing stuff.

Bastion is a very interesting action game. Although this game is published in 2011, this game is very famous between the action game world, it is also ported to a many platforms, definitely worth you try. This game is really amazing.
Though the story of this game is simple, the narrative technique in this game is rather interesting. The music of this game is also very fantastic, I could understand why many players keep high score for this game.
Too simple is also the weakness of this game, it doesn't leave too many thoughts on the player's mind. So that means if you are looking forward to game with rich story, this game maybe is not the best option-although the worldview of this game is really unique. Whatever, if you are interested in action game, this game no doubt worth you play. Many factors in this game is rather funny. I am sure you will love this game.

I have Bastion on my Wishlist for a long while now.
Have played it very shortly when it was released back in the Xbox360 days.
Got it today for less than $2, and I've been playing non-stop for 3 hours now.
Really really love this game. I could see how it's a great predecessor to Hades.
Music is absolutely terrific.
I really like the voice narrator, and short precise story telling.
I'm a sucker for Over-The-Top Action RPG games since the days of PSX's Musashiden / Zelda / Deathspank.
This game totally gave me the nostalgic happy feelings. (I'm a 40+ year old very grumpy/picky gamer)
The game is easy compared to 2020-21 action / roguelikes. Which is OK since if I want to feel the tense sensation there are plenty of games to choose from nowadays.
Playing this game just feel relax, challenging enough to feel fun, and let the fun time flows.
Totally more than worth of the $1.5 spent.

Thanks the developer for the great game.
Cheers.

This is a really amazing game it does an incredible at the music,combat and history

You basically are told the story while you are playing so it doesn't get on your way because while you fight they tell you bit and pieces that combine in a world really unique and if you want to go in detail about the past of each character is the same

The game isn't that difficult in itself (please don't torture yourself like me and activate more than 5 shrines unless going for 100%) and the game plus is an excuse for replaying the game (and getting certain achivements) thoug it save file system is really bad deleting you progress for game + and score mode

I really apreciate that it has a good linux port i haven't found any issues exept one with the subtitles but it still really good

The combat in itself tries to make you use the most recent weapons because they are the ones that do the most damage, which i am not sure if i am 100% in but it is okay

The music is amazing it fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the part of the level you are on

The shrines are something that i have a mix reaction with because there are ones that feel like give too much for little overhead and then there are the ones that give little and add a beatiful difficulty spike

The history isn't anoying and it is interesting usually they tell you more info with items but they tell you enought without them too

Just play it and have a good time with it

[h1] Quick Bastion review [/h1]
I'm not going to write a full review like I normally do because I didn't take any notes while playing it. Now that is not a good thing perse nor a bad thing. It's just that I feel like I don't have anything to talk about with this game.

[h2]Thoughts[/h2]
It's a decent game and that's why I'll recommend it but there's just not much besides the art style. The gameplay was very boring after like 30 minutes and the story is in this case the second motive to play this game but it's just not interesting in the slightest. Now the art style on the other hand is pretty good but for me it isn't worth it to play an entire game purely for the artstyle if it doesn't have anything else. With that said though, I do recommend it because it's worth it when you get it on SALE but not even close to full price. It doesn't take all that long which i thought was a good thing in this case.

Now I do have 8 hours in this game because I finished this game twice. The first time was around 2-3 years ago and I thought I had a quick ending and missed a lot of content until the 'true' ending. After just finishing it for a second time, I now come to realize this wasn't the case and just got a different ending but that doesn't matter since it was a decent enough timekiller.

[h2]Conclusion[/h2]
A decent game if you get it on sale and even then don't expect too much with it since besides the art-style and maybe the soundtrack there's not much else to behold.

[h1] Review[/h1]
Now Bastion is a classic. When the game came out it was coupled with various steam events, including having later the main voice actor of this game as an announcer in Dota 2. It’s one of these games where you can’t really make up your mind on it when you only play it once due to its gameplay systems.

Gameplay
As an action-adventure from a top-down perspective it has the usual abilities, small stat increases, and weapon upgrades. Generally, it plays rather bland as the game will give you a new weapon almost every level. These levels usually benefit using these weapons in one way or another but, especially when doing arena fights, it becomes obvious which weapons are good and which are completely useless. Often in these type of games the combat is the best, here its totally fine but you mostly play it for the story.

The map design also doesn’t play into the games favour, as I would say that random floating objects in the sky make for a cool concept they aren’t as fun as they seem to be. A lot of the maps become rather bland and due to the more isometric top down camera the whole perspective doesn’t work that well when being forced to walk narrow paths in a really weird perspective. This makes some people even rage quit as you will fall a lot down and get damage. This can be managed.

Hitboxes can be weird. You can automatically or manually aim. The first isn’t always optimal as it will always aim at the person closest to you not the one with the lowest hp or any other priority you might need. Another example is the broken blocking system. In order to block you need to lock onto a target as moving with the mouse isn’t a thing. This is awful if you try to block things, but an enemy is directly in front of you the protagonist will make a 360 and just get himself hurt.

This made the gameplay rather average. Bland. In itself its not something you really get for its gameplay as there are more well thought out games in this genre.

Story
Now the reason the game stood out was less because its story itself but rather how it is presented. The story is told by a person who basically comments on everything. And due to the writing, it works very well giving the game a depth that it didn’t have before. The storyteller sometimes addressed the player indirectly, especially when talking about the main character as a kid who is a young adult which fits to me as I played the game when I was rather young.

Initially its quite curious what’s going on. The story is told weird, additionally some things are never explained. But in the end, it comes to a good conclusion that didn’t left me disappointed. Its less character driven and more narrative driven, quite literally.
It’s a story that cant really be told by books or movies so it sets itself apart and has its own validation for existing.

Sound
The game got an interesting repertoire of tracks. Additionally, it fits into the narrative as well as the game not only has its combat and ambient tracks but also some which feature vocals that the game even addresses at some point giving and playing into the established lore.

Graphics
Its quite interestening that they managed to make a game blend three types of graphical artstyles neatly into each other. As in the background the game features still images that picture aren’t really possible to make out that well featuring distant landscapes. Ontop of that you have the regular paths the main character is walking around, which are static drawings but they appear from time to time and also have a 2.5 dimensional perspective so to say. You character on the other hand is completely 3D .

Conclusion/TL;DR
I think its not such a great game as people makes it out to be but it is very memorable solely for its presentation, story, narrative and soundtrack. There are reasons you should play this game but its totally understandable if people dislike it because of its gameplay.

6.5/10 Above average

So, I am not usually somebody who makes reviews, but this is my 2nd ever review on Steam for a game I believe is worth the review and should get a little more praise. I am not someone who takes apart games by its littlest detail. So I will just review over my impressions of the game and how it over all made me feel. After all, if a game made you feel something and got you really thinking, then the game did its job right?

I tend to be a pretty bad game hopper, so it was only recently that I decided to finally start going down my steam list, one by one. This was the very first game on my list and boy, was it an amazing start to that decision.
-------

As a disclaimer: This is not my first SuperGiants game, my very first was HADES, and I can say that I loved HADES (Switch Port) so much, that I just needed to get and play all of the other SuperGiant games. Little did I know that Bastion was their very first game and man, I wish it was longer because it's a wonderful experience.

Gameplay/Genre/Combat: It works very similarly to Hades actually, go figure its the same company. However, there are some differences! You have a lot more weapons to choose from, you can wield two weapons (For an example, my main weapon is the hammer and my secondary are the Duel Pistols), and you have a Secret Skill or technique. You can only have one Secret Skill at a time and every time you activate it, it takes away a Black Potion which allows you to use the skill. You have a certain amount of healing potions and black potions but can pick them up as you go. Along with THOSE potions, you are given a different set of potions. Every time you level up, a new slot for a new potion is added to your Distillery. You can apply them to your character as a boost while you play the game. Each one has a certain ability like being able to do +25% Damage when you Counter as an example. You can dodge roll and you can even block with a shield! The game-play itself is a rouge-like action role-play, so it is very quick, its a little slow at the beginning, but once you get used to it you become a speed demon! If you want to give yourself a challenge, you can invoke the gods in the game at the shrine which allows the enemies to be stronger, faster, damage resistant and much more. It's very crafty and clever for their very first game, you can feel the HADES similarities if your first game was HADES. If THIS is your first SuperGiant game, then I can say that its a smooth ride from this game to the next one.

Music and Art: Stunning, the composer for this game (Darren Korb) is the same man who did HADES and I think he is THE composer for SuperGiant. He is just amazing at bringing the game to life, the music is fantastic and I cant help but groove to it every time. The art is also stunning, (Made by Jen Zee) there is always beauty and intricacy to every small detail, it is all 3D models to a 2D made background and I love the artistic visuals and views that this artist puts into the game. The music and art blend together beautifully, along with the game-play and movement make a very easy, yet a challenging, and fun experience. Very pleasing to the eyes and the ears.

Story: The story is short and sweet but also bitter sweet at the same time. I wont get too far into it, I don't want to spoil anyone. The story is something you put together over time, the narrator is telling a story to you, about The Kid (you), the other people you meet, the world you find yourself in, the weapons you acquire and much more. The more mementos (items in the areas you land in after the world broke into pieces) you find, the more you get to learn about the culture's that used to be there and so on. It is a short but yet sweet story of destruction, loss and desperation, But also hope, growth, and home.

Characters: They are all wonderful, over time you get used to the narrator speaking over your game as you learn more. Not to spoil too much, my favorite character is the Survivor, as I am a very hopeful person to people like him. They all have their own individual stories that you can go through if you pick up their specific mementos and belongings. You get to learn about how they grew up and how they ended up where they are now. How SuperGiant executes interacting with the characters is wonderful, I just wish you were able to interact with them more than just approaching them with certain items. But they go through their own smaller character arcs.

Leveling: It is slow. But worth the small grind! As you go through the areas again and again you will level up, and when you do, you get to unlock a new potion slot. The potion spot at the Distillery allows you to have potions that make you stronger and more beefy as you defeat enemies and go through the story, or to help make achievement hunting easier!

Over-all Conclusion: It is amazing, absolutely wonderful, I truly believe so far that SuperGiant games does not miss when it comes to their games. They put a lot of thought and passion into what they make as an indie company and their games should be given more of a chance outside of the ground breaking Hades. Hades is a lot more open ended, no matter how many times you die you will always get new story progression and there is a lot you can do in the game. Bastion is shorter, a little more linear, and focuses on story, but even after 1 full play-through, I still have not maxed everything or tried everything and I hope to! But again I say that SuperGiant games does NOT miss, it only hits!

So try it out, you may end up falling deeper in love with these guys just like I have!

More of a middle thumb to be honest...
I did play Hades first so I'm not sure if that influenced my experience, I have a feeling it did.

Definitely well made, great art, beautiful music, the narration was well done even though I did find it got annoying pretty quickly and ended up turning it off and read the subtitles instead; the writing was solid. A creative world where the tiles create themselves under your very feet...full of light and colour, just an overall well constructed game. However, despite its beauty I found it to not be overly enjoyable. It started with the combat; it's passable but not very fun; you might find otherwise but just could not get into it the way I did with Hades. Rolling off the level, weird quirky enemies, not hitting things when you think you will, and a few crashes didn't enhance my playthrough. Particularly the ranged weapons were underwhelming. I unlocked everything and all the upgrades which helped things a bit by then I was just eager to get it over with. I played a New Game+ and was even more eager to finish it up. On a sale it may be worth exploring Supergiant's first title for 'historical' reasons but if you've already played Hades and are looking for another similar game to play this is not it.

TLDR;
6.5/10

Supergiant's first game, you wouldn't think their first game would be so good but man Bastion is fantastic.

If you haven't played a Supergiant game, their games are usually isometric action games with light RPG elements and fantastic visuals and laid back vibes and good storytelling. Bastion in particular is really cool because it's story is told through a narrator, he's a character you will meet in the game who's there and narrates the entire game, even some moves you do or when you mess up or get hit he will always have something to say and it's pretty engaging.
I really have no complaints about this game at all, I loved the combat and I think the levels were perfect in length. I like the new game plus and the amount of combat options there is, it's pretty in depth and you get to choose the way you want to play the game but it doesn't feel complicated like other games. You wouldn't think this is a game from 2011 because it still feels very modern to play.

Bastion is considered an indie classic for a reason, it's a really great game and holds up very well even now. It took me way too long to finally get around to playing it but I'm glad I did.

TL;DR: its a good short game go play it if you liked hades

I've been interested in playing this game ever since I finished Hades, as I really enjoyed it and the clips I saw of Bastion looked like it had similar gameplay aspects. Recently played this game since my friend gifted it to me and I was not disappointed at all. If we are comparing this game to Hades, I do feel that Hades is still the better game, but that is kind of a given, considering that Bastion is the first game Supergiant made and Hades was a result of everything they learnt from making this, Transistor and Pyre. If you liked Hades though, I do feel you would like this game as the gameplay is quite similar and it has a nice story.

The game is very short, as you can finish the game in about 7 hours (I played through new game plus so my time is about twice that length), with the game being comprised of short areas you traverse through to progress the story, so you can just hop on and play at anytime basically. I think this is the part where I gush over the gameplay, as I really liked the gameplay. The combat, while again not as good as Hades, is very fun, as the environment and movement options allow you to use different approaches to various situations. You also get a wide variety of weapons throughout the game, which you can upgrade by collecting the specific material for that weapon or buying it, then buying the upgrade. This allows for a variety of differing playstyles, all of which are fun to just try out. To try them out or grind for money, there are arenas in the bastion where you can fight wave after wave of enemies. These arenas or dreams also give you backstories/a better look at the personalities of the characters in the game which I think is a brilliant way to tell a story.

Speaking of characters, the characters are very well developed in my opinion considering the amount of screentime they get. Excluding Rucks, who narrates the entire game, there are also Zulf and Zia, who you meet as you progress through the story. These two dont get much screentime as you wont spend too much time in the Bastion with them, but I feel like their characters were actually explored well considering that.

The OST of this game is also very nice, as some of the tracks really does hit you in the feels and fit with the narratives and characters very well. Overall, very solid game. Dont expect this to be as good as Hades, but you can clearly see the amount of growth Supergiant has gone through over the years.

The game title has no relation to the Overwatch character. I was so disappointed to find this out... Jk.

Indie Hack 'n Slash Action RPG with a somewhat similar game play to the Diablo series (isometric style). It has the same creators as Transistor and Pyre. If you like those games, you'll most likely enjoy this. The artwork for this title is GORGEOUS. It kind of reminds me of an Impressionist painting.

The game is short, but there's some replay-ability from the New Game Plus and Score Attack modes. All in all, the best character is the Narrator. The dude totally sets the whole atmosphere. For reals.

I dropped it for a few years but came back after his passing to finish it.

Has a very special place in my heart now.

Overall it was just OK for me up until a very deeply moving scene towards the end that was just amazing. I hated the diagonal map design (northeast to Southwest) instead of your normal north to south style map. I do realize this was done to make it look better but it took away from game-play because of it. Also I felt that the game-play got monotonous real fast even with the assortment of different weapons and skills.

Artistically it looked very pretty, especially the Kid's design itself. And as far as the narrator, although I didn't really like his voice but he did a great job and I felt as though he wanted his narration to sound like something out of the wild west.

So what I can say about this game is that it's NOT epic but it's good. I will have to give it a 7/10. And btw it took me about 20 hours to finish the game the first time. I did do about 4-5 hours of straight grinding which wasn't necessary at all really unless you are an achievement hunter. So you could feasibly finish the story in 10-15 hours. Maybe less if you don't do ANY grinding.

Bastion is a beautiful game. I do admit that I found it difficult to keep up with the story at times because they deliver it to you while you are in combat and focusing on other things, but I got enough to really appreciate the effort put into this game.

Of course the narration is top-tier level, and I found the gameplay to be basic but very enjoyable. It also presents options for letting you choose how you want to run a level.

Finally one of the best parts of the game is how quickly it can be finished. I much prefer shorter (6 hours-ish) games over 60 hour games any day. I have a backlog to get through here, I don't have time to spend hours on end trying to finish a single game!

9/10 - great game, seriously recommend it to anyone!

Considering It's their first game, it's pretty good. The narrator's voice acting is nice , it's visually appealing , the gameplay and enemy variety would have gotten a bit boring if the game was longer, but for the 10-15 hours this game asks, I think it will be worth your time.

Bastion is a modern classic action game. With a moving story told through solid, simple action gameplay and a host of striking visuals alongside an outstanding soundtrack, this game is an essential PC gaming experience. Lose yourself in this addictive post-apocalyptic landscape as you undertake an unforgettable adventure.

You play as The Kid, a white-haired young man with a knack for dodge rolls and violence. At the behest of an older man named Rucks, The Kid must travel around a ruined land post-Calamity to salvage materials to power the Bastion, a floating island that serves an unclear purpose. Along the way, fight a wide variety of wildlife and machines, collect scraps and mementos from the past society, arm yourself with nearly a dozen different weapons, and build up the Bastion to customize your experience and reassemble what you can of civilization.

The first major release from developer Supergiant Games, most known more recently for the hack-'n-slash roguelike Hades, Bastion is a game of both gorgeous artistry and excellent gameplay. Combat sequences take up most of the player's time; setpieces spawn throughout levels that players can take on armed with a shield and two weapons of their choice. Enemies have distinct weaknesses to certain weapons, giving levels some replayability down the line as players challenge them outfitted with different equipment. Bastion also has a decent exploration element, with levels chock full of upgrade materials, mementos that reveal lore, and tons of currency to collect. This currency can be spent in a few ways back at the Bastion, allowing the player to tailor their own experience through the game's dozen or so levels.

Bastion is a pleasure to witness from the sights and sounds it provides. The game features a number of iconic facets of art design, ranging from floating level terrain that spawns in virtually underfoot to the soothing-yet-wizened narration of Rucks. With a wide color palatte and level backgrounds bordering on the psychedelic, there's always something good to look at with this one. An outstanding soundtrack compliments the visuals, with songs that match the story's emotional beats and even sporting lyrics corresponding to relevant people or places. Gameplay is enough of a smooth affair that even the less seasoned gamers who simply wish to try this for the story or the aesthetics will find this accessible and rewarding.

Though Bastion is a decently short adventure, with a full run clocking in at a little over four hours, this game offers players a rich experience with plenty to do. Take on custom challenges to bolster your favorite weapons, fight in arena combat for practice or to experience more of the story, fulfill a host of missions to earn rewards, or further increase the game difficulty with a range of modifiers that amp up the intensity and the rewards. Even this length for a single run is deceptive, as a robust New Game Plus mode can easily bring players back in for a second or third time to tackle completionist objectives or to see what consequences different choices in the story yield.

Bastion is a mark of excellence for indie gaming. It manages to tell a compelling story with gameplay satisfying to newbies or challenge seekers. Tons of content and replay value, an amazing OST and inspiring world design, simple combat that doesn't get old - there are endless reasons for you to embark on this journey, least of which should be the low sale price this game often goes up for. Play this one as soon as possible. Bastion gets an A+.

Nice game, I enjoyed it. Gameplay is a mix between arpg and action. It has a great art style and it's aged really well, it looks lovely. It takes around 6 hours to work through main story, but to 100% achievs is a grind that requires multiple playthroughs. Buy this game just for the narrator... I could listen to him all day long. Eargasm was real.

Awesome game. Beautiful, world shattering yet very intimately told story. The gameplay is flawlessly done. One of my favourite games.

And now I played all 4 games of supergiant games and I'm so happy that I did that. I bought all 4 soundtracks because 1. I feel like supporting them for making these absolute gems and 2. All 4 are fantastic pieces of art (both games and soundtracks) that worth every penny of what I paid for them.

This game had a rough, uninspiring start for me. I almost refunded it, before passing the 2h mark. But I decided to stick around since this was the third supergiant game that I played after Hades and Pyre. I loved the other two so I thought that maybe this one gets better and it does. The longer I played it the more I ended up liking it.

Story is good enough, nothing ground breaking but it's better than decent. Sprite-work is gorgeous. Lot's of different weapons and buffs allow for many different builds. Soundtrack is really good and core gameplay feels responsive after you get a hang of it.

Animations are just bad, main character moves in like 10 fps, and the attack indication animations of the enemies aren't clear right away, it takes a while to learn the animations and get used to them. Hitboxes are really weird, often my projectiles went straight through the enemies without dealing damage or enemies weren't hit while obviously standing in the melee range. I hated the narration, it was either irritating or putting me to sleep, but I hate the narration in games most of the times so it might be a personal nitpick

Game's worth the asking price imo
