    Bastion has an exceptionally beautiful story that will stick with you, and a fantastic narrative that will carry you through that story from beginning to end. Along with the near godly soundtrack and the plethora of challenges ahead of you, this game is sure to be unforgettable.

    However I must give this game a 10 for this reason. While Bastion practically basks in the spotlight of one of the best indie games ever made, it also paved the road for two other games I would consider to be even more phenomenal, the other two masterpieces by Supergiant Games, Transistor and Pyre. Without Bastions success these games may have never been made, and that alone makes Bastion a legendary title.

    Bastion is a thrilling action RPG. Supergiant Games' fans will love it, but it's definitely for those who want a story with incredible music, fascinating characters and incredible gameplay.

    Its artistic style and the gameplay are still Bastion's two bastions for Nintendo Switch. In spite of not having additions, the portability of Switch fits perfectly. The story and its narration, as well as that progressive difficulty, make of Bastion a wonderful timeless title.

    Simply put, Bastion is an indie masterwork. It fits right at home on the Nintendo Switch, being exactly the type of game suitable for mobile play. The gameplay’s simplistic nature makes it an easy game to hop in and out of on the go. And the optional challenges highlight the game’s thrilling and addictive combat, making it easy to come back to over and over again. My only regret is that I didn’t acknowledge this game sooner. Any gripes I might have towards Bastion seem nitpicky at this point. Seven years ago, Supergiant Games delivered a solid action RPG title. Now, it gets another chance to bask in the sun thanks to the Nintendo Switch.
