Taking its name from one of the greatest technological inventions of the 20th century, Transistor is unequivocally one of the greatest games this year. That it only costs twenty dollars is astounding since it could easily sell for more, and despite it being rather short, Transistor begs to be replayed at least once. It may be self-described as just a "sci-fi themed action RPG," but for once in this industry, that's severe modesty.

Transistor is such a finely woven creation, I didn’t want to risk giving away any details and detracting from anyone’s personal experience of the game. I hope this fact can justly illustrate how great of a game it really is... I think just about anyone will enjoy at least some part of this title, if not thoroughly enjoy the whole. Give this game the time and love it deserves, as I can wholeheartedly say that a lot of time and love was put into creating it.

Following on from Bastion, I doubt many would have begrudged Supergiant from heading down the same path again. While Transistor does hold certain similarities, such as having the constant presence of a voice and the general underpinnings of the action RPG gameplay, the Turn planning phase completely transforms the manner in which you will tackle a fight, making it a far more considered and tactical experience.
