Reviews

 

IGN - 90/100 - While it seems gimmicky on paper, I found myself playing through the entire game this way, and really appreciating the immersion it added to my experience.

 

TheSixthAxis - 9/10 -  Transistor is a near essential game to own on PS4.

 

MMORPG.com - 8.7/10 - My biggest wish is for more of this game, a sequel or some DLC, because I want to see this world continued, and I want to play the combat until my thumbs bleed.

 

GameInformer - 9/10 - From its surreal setting and enigmatic characters, to its surprising upgrade system and combat, Transistor is a game that is happy to let you discover its charms over time.

 

Gamespot - 8/10 - So in the end, yes, Transistor is a fun action role-playing game with a neat combat system, but beautiful moments like these make it more than that. They make it a game with a soul.

I like the look of this game. I hope it ends up being a free PS+ game, but either way I'll most likely get it at some point.



I love JRPGs, but hate anime... Is that legal?

It does seem different than your average game. But it looks very promising and looks very addicting. I personally can't wait.
