Another excellent game from the makers of Bastion. Transistor has a great and unusual story which is almost completely delivered by a talking sword (the Transistor of the title) via interactions with the main character Red (who has lost her voice).
The combat is also enjoyable allowing you to pause time to plot your attacks and movement giving it a very tactical feel.
Also just like Bastion the animation and music in this game is it's strongest point making it a beautiful piece of gaming art.
-Great story thats brilliantly delivered
-The combat in this game is interesting and feels fresh
-Beautifully animated with a great soundtrack and excellent voice acting.
-A single playthrough is quite short but recursion mode (allowing you to replay it with your unlocked upgrades and more challenging enemies) gives you a reason to come back for more.
- A greater variety of enemies would have been nice though this is sort of remedied with enemy types upgrading as you progress through the game.
Overall this is a beautiful well made game that i'd highly recommend.
