    As I have explained in my Bastion review, Supergiant Games is a legendary company, releasing Bastion, Transistor, and Pyre. The games story is amazing, one that I will never forget for being so impactful, and its narrative is even better then Bastion's, it brought the game to life, from beginning to end it felt like I was a part of the journey.

The games story is amazing, one that I will never forget for being so impactful, and its narrative is even better then Bastion's, it brought the game to life, from beginning to end it felt like I was a part of the journey. The soundtrack was so fitting to the world's theme, and was of the highest quality, not to mention the game play was unique to any other, it was both enjoyable and customizable, made to let you play how you want to play.

    This does nothing but prove how absolutely talented the developers are, releasing another masterpiece without a doubt, that does nothing but improve on their previous installment, Bastion. Transistor is outstanding, it is worth every penny, and it is an experience... one not so easily forgettable.

    Transistor is a marvelous piece of gaming worthy of all praises. Whether for fans of action games or turn-based combat games, this is definitely a game to invest in and where players will find themselves experimenting in many ways thanks to the game's long lifespan, with an absolutely exquisite soundtrack in the background.

    A beautiful title. It has an interesting story and a good combat and gameplay system. It also offers a great soundtrack.

    While there doesn't seem to be anything new to draw players in, Transistor has always had a goal of replayability to begin with.
