The cliche “grabs hold and never let’s go” definitely applies to Supergiant Games’ Transistor. When you begin the game, you are already thrust into a moving plot, and it’s up to you to figure out what happened to Red, the character that you play – but you’re also trying to keep up with the now. With a talking sword as your companion, you make your way through a stylish, sci-fi adventure, finding all of the pieces of a puzzle that is constantly on the verge of being swept off of the table by your foes. Transistor is strange, action-packed, and a refreshingly different take on a role-playing game. Between the exceedingly well-crafted visuals, sound, and battle system, this game has the potential to hold your interest like no other game can.
