Dust: An Elysian Tail, a masterpiece.
This is the first thorough review I have written for a video game.. (TL;DR at the bottom of review)
Where do I start? Dust: An Elysian Tail is one of the best games I have ever played. First, the story. The dialogue is very well-written. There are lines that made me smile, specially the Fidget ones! And how they ended that story, simply wonderful (no spoilers incoming, don't worry.)Gameplay
This is a fighter game but has platformer and some RPG elements such as shops, quests, and leveling up. The gameplay is very responsive. I played this with a PS3 controller (as a X360 controller) and it was wonderful. Nothing was wrong with the controls, the fighting was consistent and very responsive. The gameplay was really fun and I'd probably come back to play some little more just for the heck of it.Graphics
The art style is beautiful and the graphics are spot-on. Every region has a different look and feel to it. There's a snow region that leaves your footsteps in the snow. These are probably the best graphics I have ever seen in a game with a 2D artstyle. Now, the only problem I have with the graphics (Dunno if you'll have them) is that I've had some stuttering in the game. Vsync was on, but I really don't know what was the problem. This kinda annoyed me, really, but not that much.Replayability
I haven't really tried to 100% complete this game yet. But boy, it has tons of quests and tons of treasure to find. You'll probably put 25 hours or more into this game if you 100% complete it. So, this game for completionists? Heck yes.Verdict
I think that Dust: An Elysian Tail is a fantastic game and a must-have for every PC gamer who likes fighting games.
My rating: Loved it and highly recommend it.
Time to beat: ~20hrs
Time to 100%: nope sry got +30 other games thx steam
This game is fantastic and amazing and wonderful and I love it and you should totally freaking buy it or I'm gonna throw you outside this Steam page.
