Bound’s abstract world is one of geometric pathways atop an undulating sea of cubes. Its protagonist is an otherworldly ballerina; her every step and leap an act of elegance. She can also literally dance her way through any obstacles. It’s an inspired idea, even if it doesn’t amount to anything mechanically interesting. While Bound is a visual triumph, with intriguing story vignettes, its platforming is more style than substance.
