From the makers of indie masterpiece Bastion, this stunning RPG thrusts you into a hauntingly beautiful sci-fi world brimming with intrigue. To unravel the mysteries of Cloudbank, you’ll need to fight robotic goons in intense tactical battles while modifying your weapon with powerful new abilities. Transistor’s gorgeous artwork, affecting soundtrack, and riveting story all blend to create a truly one-of-a-kind experience.

One of the best games ever.

I got this for the Apple TV and it was amazing. The art style is incredible and the music is A++. When you set down the controller, Red starts humming along to the music, which was enough to make me swoon by itself. The gameplay is very fluid and the different ability combos you can create really add a lot of diversity to the play styles you can choose from. There are only two issues I had that are preventing me from giving a 5 star review. First, the aiming system for the Apple Remote is too sensitive and makes fine control nearly impossible. Honestly I never checked if you could turn it down though so I could be complaining for no reason. The other thing which was a bigger issue is that is keeps crashing during New Game Plus. I was really looking forward to finishing it at least twice but it's crashed probably 10 times in the first few hours of gameplay since I restarted. Fix that and I'll change to 5 stars.

ALMOST the perfect game!

This game blew me away. Gameplay, graphics, the story, the music omg the music! And the Turn() is nothing short of brilliant. So satisfying to play. One of the best and most immersive games I've ever played. I only have three issues with Transistor. One, it crashes randomly. Not too often, but it's annoying because (second issue) it takes so long to load! I would have still given the game five stars if those were the only problems, but... the story is WAY TOO SHORT! I was just getting going and then I faced the final boss! Seriously way way way too short. I want more! I would PAY for more. Recursion is great, but it is just the same thing again. The world of Transistor is so deep and intriguing and I felt like we barely scratched the surface. Sequel??? PLEASE???
