Game Review: Transistor


Red, a famous singer in a city called Cloudbank, is attacked by the Process, a robotic force commanded by a group called the Camerata. She manages to escape and comes into possession of the mysterious Transistor—the great sword-like weapon she was to be assassinated with. The Transistor is buried into the chest of a man, now slumped over and dead; though his consciousness and voice seem to have been absorbed into the Transistor itself along with Red’s voice. The Camerata continue to track Red and the Transistor down with the Process, wanting the weapon for some yet-unknown cause.

I became a fan of Super Giants after playing Bastion. I was very much looking forward to play transistor once I heard it was coming out. I loved the fact that it had the same prospective as Bastion. I loved the fact that the game soundtrack had a great impact on the game. The soundtrack was a job well done, every song is better than the one before and each song told a story that matched the game events.

The story is about survival and saving the city. It had a dramatic depth to it and is a love story. The game play is similar to Bastion if you have played it. You have a weapon and you acquire new moves along the way. since the game is cyberpunkish you can also combine the moves and get stronger moves basically.

The game is very fun to play and its totally worth playing.

Overall Rate: 4/5
