Is It Any Good?

While Bastion's gameplay is incredibly well-done, the game is truly memorable because of the witty, wise narrator, who keeps the story moving while also commenting on every little action the hero takes -- including when he accidentally plunges to his death. It's as if the developers tapped in to that inner monologue we sometimes imagine when playing (or even doing real world activities).

The game also offers a diverse group of enemies and enough paths to explore that it stays true to its role-playing roots, while blending in puzzles and plenty of action. Nothing was lost in the port from the Xbox 360 version of the game -- and it might just have gotten better.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
