Dust: An Elysian Tail is beautiful but drowns in repetition (review)

VentureBeat
13 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Dust: An Elysian Tail is a pleasure to look at. The combat is deep and highly kinetic, but the rest of the game can’t keep up with that energy. What’s left is an inconsistent and sometimes boring product that doesn’t live up to its potential.
  • Pros: Hyper-smooth animation and gorgeous visuals From a technical standpoint, Dust is possibly the best looking XBLA game. The animation has a buttery-smooth quality that surpasses just about anything Cartoon Network is airing on Saturday mornings. The characters and enemies move with a fluidity that ...
  • Cons: Absurd voice acting, silly narrative tropes, and questionable character design In the opening moments of the experience, the protagonist discovers he has amnesia, he gets a magical sword, and he acquires a wise-ass sidekick. It all occurs because that’s just what happens in these games. That’s en...

Dust: An Elysian Tail

PC Only
3 September 2013
  • Summary: Soms kan ik een flinke dosis schattigheid in een game wel waarderen. Mariniers en andere soorten krijgers met sixpacks waar je jaloers van wordt en biceps die bergen kunnen verplaatsen vervelen op den duur een beetje. Ik waardeer bloederig geweld en een hoop gore, maar wat variatie is ook leuk.
  • Pros: Emotioneel verhaal, Toffe combat, RPG-elementen, Veel content, Mooie beelden en veel opties
