Expression is a major theme running throughout Transistor. When it leans into that philosophy in the design and story, it’s some of the most exciting time I’ve spent with a game of this scope. Everything that is there glows with presentation and forethought. It’s only when restriction – restriction from information and restriction from movement – becomes the focus that I feel I’m missing something even better.

Visuals and sound are the bread and butter of a Supergiant game, and Transistor really does knock it out of the park with a gorgeous art style, fantastic use of color, and highly evocative soundtrack. I maintain that the style is positioned way above any actual substance, but I also cannot deny just how damn great such an elegant style truly is. From environments, to enemy design, to every distinct attack animation, everything is gorgeous, flowing, and colorful.

Despite some reservations with the ending, Transistor is captivating in ways that few other games can manage. It creates a place that we wanted to be a part of, learn more about, and most importantly didn’t want to leave. Transistor isn’t something you’ll forget about immediately after finishing it. Instead, it’s one that you’ll wish you could play again for the first time.
