Check out my review of the game here: Bastion review
Bastion gave me one of the most negative first impressions that I’ve ever had; there was a lot of swearing and frustration that first day as I got used to it. However, after forcing myself to continue playing, I grew to like it more and more. As it stands now, it’s probably my favorite indie game that I’ve played. To be fair, I haven’t played all that many indie games (and half the time I don’t even check if a game is indie or not), but I’ve had enough bad indie experiences to appreciate how well Bastion does what it does. It may be a bit overrated, but if you can tune out the hype, it’s definitely worth a chance.
