Bastion – Review

 

Bastion is the first title in this year's Summer of Arcade and it is a great way to start out the five week promotion.  In Bastion you play the role of “The Kid” and you awake to a world that has been destroyed by the Calamity.  You have no idea what...

Looking at Bastion, it could very easily be mistaken as yet another Diablo wannabe. But this would be a grave error. While Bastion is an isometric

Bastion Review (Xbox 360)

 

It is this flexibility which keeps Bastion fresh from beginning to end. The variety of weapons, ranging from repeating crossbows to hammers to mortars, are satisfying to use and they're introduced at an intelligent pace. The moment you feel you've...

Bastion Review - Frictionless Insight

 

The Calamity has left Caelondia shattered. Literally. All that remains of a thriving city are tiny floating fragments and scattered survivors, human and otherwise. A hard-boiled kid with a smattering of fighting expertise allies himself with an older...

Bastion Review: XBLA gets another modern classic

 

There's a summer slowdown when it comes to disc-based games, but no shortage of great XBLA titles. Brian Lelas lets us know about Bastion in a review.

Are videogames art? This question has been bounced around a lot in recent years. In the case of Bastion, the answer is a resounding ?yes.? The simplistic yet dynamic combat, the ever-changing world of fantastic imagination and the amazing voice-over...

Bastion review [360]

 

The Summer of Arcade has featured some great games in the past – the likes of Braid, Limbo, and Super Meat Boy, for example. But Bastion, from Supergiant Games, achieves a new level of quality in many ways. Few XBLA releases combine such striking...

Bastion

 

An RPG game heads into philosophical territory.

Bastion is a post-apocalyptic work, yet it’s almost never grim. Its premise is that even when the future seems to have been consumed by past calamity, the only way to go is forward. But does moving ahead after a disaster mean rebuilding what was there,...

Bastion Review:

 

Bastion Review Xbox 360 (xbla) Arcade. It's been a good time for Xbox Live Arcade games lately, and Microsoft's Summer of Arcade special has just started with Bastion. Bastion is an adventure RPG where the entire experience is narrated as it un...

Bastion is the kind of game that justifies the Xbox Live Arcade. It's fun, smart, and full of content. At no point is it anything other than amazing. Microsoft made a brilliant decision in starting their Summer of Arcade with Bastion. If you find...

Bastion Review

 

The Summer of Arcade kicks off with Bastion, so does it start with a bang or a bust?

When I beat Bastion for the first time, I reloaded my save and played through for the second ending. When that was done, I started my new game plus. I'm not the repeat type of gamer, but Bastion's leveling, weapon upgrades, and difficulty tweaks are...

Bastion

 

You probably think you've heard this story before: Calamity strikes and the whole world ends. You're one of the few people left standing in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by monsters. It's up to you to collect the pieces and rebuild your broken home....

It's not always about the adventure you go on, but sometimes it's the way the story is told. Bastion weaves an incredible story that goes places I wasn't expecting. The game's narrations are unlike anything I've experienced before; improving what could...
