  • Summary: What a beautiful game, with fluid controls and slick combat. The voice work is great and the difficulty of the side-puzzles reminded me of a time when things weren't hand fed to the player; and it is quite fun figuring things out on your own. It's a bit short and the combat may get repetitive at times, but I never found myself bored. The furries made me hesitant to try this game at first, but I ended up enjoying it.

  • Summary: The first 40% of the game is fantastic and original; a very interesting story with an anthropomorphous art-style that seems to be well-worth the 14 euros. However, it then suddenly hits you over the head with a seemingly endless underground level that features large amounts of platforming and enemies that can only be beaten by parrying, whereas the first 40% was a fast-paced and flashy brawler.

  • Summary: THIS IS A MUST HAVE! The story line, the play style, everything was awesome about it. When the ending makes you actually tear up, that means that the game did it's job. You care about all the characters. I played it on the casual setting, with my laptop/gaming pc hooked up to my television using the full controller support. Flawless execution. Definitely worth the time and money. So many throwbacks to other indie developers that it made me smile.

  • Summary: Dust is not a bad game. The art is high quality and everything is well-polished. However, it's also not a particularly good or interesting game. The combat and enemies are repetitive, and the story and character archetypes are almost identical to those found in so many RPGs (Quiet, noble protagonist, cutesy sidekick, sage-like mentor, flirty female characters who embarrass protagonist, etc.).

  • Summary: This game is phenomenal. Polished from start to finish. Great combat, environments, graphics, sound, and a decent story to boot. NO I didn’t make the game, some people are just too childish to admit not all reviews come from some paid scrub that comes on here to boost ratings. This game is awesome, don’t miss it.

  • Summary: Beautiful side-scrolling action game. Has fantastic animated dialog, interesting characters and AMAZING gameplay. My only complaint is that the ending is a bit weak and there's no New Game+ to help you get 100%. At $13, this is definitely worth it.

  • Summary: Please, whatever you do, ignore all the trolls saying this is a bad game without giving any reasoning behind it. I don't know why you'd believe such crap in the first place anyway, but I had to get that out of the way. Dust is honestly one of the most enchanting and charming games I've ever played. The fact that all of this (other than the music) was made by one person just makes this whole thing even more amazing than it already is.

  • Summary: This game is everything you could want in an action rpg. Dust has an amazing art style with fluid, engaging combat. The music is fantastic and the voice acting is some of the best I've ever heard. The story line is really fresh and makes you feel very sympathetic to it's characters. Not often am I impressed by a game this much. I would highly recommend this game. A game this polished, creative and entertaining to not be played would be a crime.

  • Summary: The developer built the game from the ground up on pc then ported it to xbox. He then added pc settings and such. This is a solid game and has everything you could ever want from a Metroid/Vania type game. The combat is fast and fluid. Character stat customization. Amazing art style and graphics. Glorious music. Crafting. Exploration and adventure. You grow attached to the npcs and care about what their issues are and what happens next.
