Transistor - Review @ RPGamer
RPGamer posted a new review for Supergiant Games Transistor, and awarded the game with a final score of 4/5. So this makes another postive review for the game.
While it would be hard to call Transistor disappointing, it's also impossible to say that it's as good as Supergiant Games' previous title. If the game had taken more time to explain its story, characters, and world, it probably would have been a more enjoyable experience. Luckily, the design of the combat system is a huge step up from Bastion's comparatively simple hack'n'slash battles, and the game's Recursion Mode — basically a new game plus — is designed in such a way that multiple playthroughs are required in order to see all the various functions and even to unlock all of the game's upgrade slots. A single playthrough will likely take most players roughly eight hours. It might not have matched up to their last game, but Transistor is still a great title that leaves me excited to see what the studio has planned next.
