Great game with an amazing story.
20 September 2014 | by drako121See all my reviews

Dust: An Elysian Tail incorporates a 'cartoonish' art design in a hack and slash RPG sidescroller, it's really captivating and is easy to connect to the story. It is very visually appealing and just plain beautiful, has nice music, good voice actors and a combat system that is just so fluent and overall makes the entire game smooth. It can be noted that Dust has similarities to Kingdom Hearts, on the PS2, mainly through the story and sense of the game. As the story runs for a good 10+ hours, Dust is definitely worth the $15 on steam and considering most of the game was completed by one person, it is an amazing accomplishment, 9/10.
