I bought it cause trailer showed some pretty interesting fighting scenes, i had no idea what i was getting myself into :)
This game kept me interested form the very first frame and not once did i find it boring or repetative. Its one of those games that are easy to like and get into but hard to let go.
First thing i noticed about it was the incredible and trully beautiful art style which really stands out. Every area of this game is very well done and is enriched with an AMAZING soundtrack that contributes so much to the atmosphere and overall feeling of the game world leaving you no choice but to love it.
Second thing is combat which i soon realized is not exactly what i expected since i was looking for something with many, many, many moves to fight with but then again, it turned out that in this game its much more important to avoid being hit(could be due to my difficulty setting, cause i mostly go for the hardest one straight away if available) than to hit yourself. Even with few combos, this game managed to do what many games with much bigger move lists failed to and thats to make it fun, cause thats what games are all about, right? :) In addition to being fun, its also super fast and it makes you want to combo as much as possible and rewards the ones who do it with bonus XP
Game also has many secrets. Some areas will be inaccessable or, more like, unreachable at first, but as you progress with the story and as Dust gains new skill, reaching those will no longer be a problem for you, while some secrets are just well hidden and require certain clues to find, so, as a completionist, i enjoyed this gameplay aspect very much.
And last but not least, the story. I dont wanna spoil anything for anyone so i will just say that its pretty damn good, but it takes a while to get from intriguing to very interesting so, be patient :)
If you are having second thoughts, i say go for it, theres really no reason not to like this trully amazing game that is bound to stay with you for a long time. Hope this review helps
Only complainment i have about this Steam release is that it does not let me purchase OST! I really want this in my Steam library, Valve, plz fix
