4.0 out of 5 stars Original, some platforming flaws but it's actually FUN!, 19 Dec. 2008
This review is from: Psychonauts (PC) (Video Game)
I was recommended this game for a friend quite a few months back, he knows I loved games such as Monkey Island with truly interesting ideas for witty jokes integrated into an adventure game. Psychonauts was for me, a breath of fresh air after numerous recycled ideas for platform games being reinterpreted. Sure, Psychonauts is no Crash Bandicoot or Mario when comparing it for it's platforming quality. The control system can even be quite frustrating at times. However this is forgiven instantly when you grow into a giant and terrorise a giant city of talking fish (even in context that doesn't make a huge amount of sense!)

That's the underlying factor of games isn't it? FUN? You know that word that games used to be associated with before RPG's like World of Warcraft came along and it feels like a second job (which you have to pay for.) Yes, Psychonauts is a charming, witty and immersive video game which yours truly was addicted to for many hours in his spare time. The variety of psychic skills is a boost, allowing you to be creative (as well as burning things for fun, lifting annoying people, terrorising fish etc.) If you like fun games and aren't hugely bothered with a couple of design flaws then this is for you.

Hurry and buy it now....trust me!
