Bastion is a delight. It features innovative and atmospheric narration throughout a captivating story, beautiful painted graphics and a gorgeous soundtrack as well as fast-paced and polished gameplay. Notably it is a bit of a slow bloomer in several ways – if after the first hour you're not sure if it's worth your time, consider giving it another. The few minor weaknesses I found were easily offset by the fantastic overall quality and polish.
