    Bastion (Xbox 360)

    I bought this in the Christmas sales and only played a couple of hours before stopping. The game just didn't click with me.

    The art style is great but the game felt far too simplistic.

    I went back to the game last week and it seemed to click this time. The game became more involving and the choice of weapons helped to customise the experience.

    I also switched on a lot of the Shrine effects. Each one has a different effect such as making baddies stronger, replenishing health on attacked foes. This made the game more difficult in a good way.

    I would have loved the game to have exploration and maybe some puzzle elements as it is quite linear.

    Overall the game is very enjoyable if you can get past the slow start.

    8.5/10
