How is this game?
What are the pros and cons? Is it worth $2.25?

Pros: Great music and graphics. An interesting narrator that comments on your actions / decisions.

Cons: It's a fairly short game that is not very challenging.

It's a fun little title you'll beat in a few hours and probably never come back to, but the music and narrator make it a memorable experience.

I have over 60 hours logged in Bastion. Not everyone will love it as much I do, but it certainly has replay value. There are two choices of endings, and once you turn on all ten idols it becomes a lot more challenging. If you have any interest in video game storytelling, good music, hack and slash style gameplay, or beautiful artwork, get this game.

It is worth, impressive game. Wonderful soundtrack.

I was wondering the same, for the cost it is, why not.

I appreciate alien742 asking this question, and your responses.

Thanks for the reviews everyone! I will be buying today!

Yeah, it is a wonderful game. Hopefully the followup by supergiant studios is just as great.

and the soundtrack is actually worth the extra $1 as well

Im not the indie game type, but you all owe it to yourself to spend the 2.50 while its on sale and get it, its stunning, great art, amazing music, and the narrator is such a good touch to the game. i really cant see how anyone could not get sucked in to this game.

Just finished my first play through of this game, it was a lot of fun. Definitely worth the money!

I agree with other people on the music, very very nice. :)

It's okay. It's not great, but it's not terrible either. It's one of those games where you're like, "Meh. I didn't get ripped off."

you make it as challing as u want it with the gods u activate alot of those and u have it pretty rough.To OP its amazing the story is deep enough to get that connection to the story. There is replayablity and fun weapons

I'd recommend this game shamelessly at full price. On Steam Sale? Quit reading and buy it already!

Just bought it not to long ago! Thanks for the comment :)

I'd recommend this game for about five bucks (as in dollars, not deer, I hate hunting). For $2.24, it's a sweet deal.
