  • Summary: Really fun game, visually beautiful, and not a bad story to boot. The game is easy to master but still offers enough of a challenge to keep it entertaining. It's a great throwback to old school side scrolling games with a hint of modern HD performance.

  • Summary: A westernized muramasa rebirth. In a nutshell this game is fun and simple. A hack and slash game that gets propelled to better heights with the rpg elements, and the random loot. I loved the random loot it kinds of cancels out the repititive nature of hack and slash games.

  • 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.

Dust: An Elysian Tail Review: A Tale Worthy of Being Told

18 April 2013
  • Summary: Is a man defined by his birth, or is a man defined by overcoming his birth? Dust is a 2D side-scrolling video game mash-up. Combining solid hack-and-slash gameplay with lite RPG elements and the platforming/backtracking commonly associated with games in the "Metroidvania" style, Dust is a love...

  • Summary: Dust: An Elysian Tail is a very fascinating and extremely entertaining game. It reminds me a lot of Castlevania or Metroid in way. Combat is very creative and imaginative with several different action packed ways to dispatch your enemies.

  • Excerpt: Чудная аркадная игрушка, я в очередной раз убедился что игры на всяких xboxlivearcade и тому подобных сервисах часто интереснее блокбастеров. ну впрочем, и в мире кино так же.
