Dust: An Elysion Tail (short Dust:AET) is my favourite single-player game up to this day! Why you ask? Well this game achieved a very satisfying yet on Hard Mode challenging Brawler Gameplay, a good story with cool and remember able characters like Fidget, one of your companions in the game.
The Gameplay is made up out of 3 basic moves, basic sword atttack, spinning your sword and Fidgets fire breath attacks. Hold your feet because if enemies are in the air and you attak them with a spinning you sword attack you can go flying, quite literally, this might sound a bit odd, so if you are unsure just check out the gameplay and it will make a lot more sense. You can also combine the weak fire breath and combine with spinning your sword and summon up strong AoE attacks which melt any enemy. And don't worry as the game progresses you can get more variations of the fire breath moves and find your best playstyle. Or you just use your sword all the time, its really up to the player.
Let's get to the cream de la cream the story and characters, since it's not just an indie title, but also an one man game, you would think that the low budget for voice acting would have had a bad impact on the game, but especially the quality the character Fidget is surprisingly good, I can't spoil anything but there are a few voice lines in the gameplay, if you are keen. The story is about you killing the bad guy, but also a journey learning about yourself and the world you live in, the world itself is fun to explore and the boss have different backgrounds to why they are fighting you, really interesting. As are the side quests, half of the side quests are just simple “Get me this item plz.” quests, but the other half unlocks side levels and little memories will be made and make the characters you meet, feel more relevant and you'll care more about them.
Really enjoyed it nice voice acting, cool story with a bit of joking as well and an interesting, fairly big world to explore. A pretty good game for an one man game. Definitely worth buying.
This game gets an 'A' for Awesome. (A>G>O)
