Still worth trying at $5.
meh... you are probably the one of the rare few who didn't enjoy Bastion. Everyone has different expectations of games though! I have also been disappointed with some universally praised games.
The game caught me the moment the narration started. The gameplay is pretty fun too..although I suck and kept falling off the ledges. However gameplay isn't the only thing that makes bastion stands out. The beautiful art, the dynamic narration, the way the story is told(multiple endings too), some truly emotive scenes and the beautiful beautiful tracks all come together to create a great game.
It is priced pretty low too at $5? It is quite a big middle finger to all 'premium' indie appstore developers who are complaining about apps being priced too low."Look..here is a port of a multiple awards winning game on multiple platforms being offered lower than your premium ios games"
