Set in Halloween, Costume Quest is a cute RPG with turn based combat. After you select your character, you are thrown into the story: your sister (or your brother) has been kidnapped by goblins because they need candy and your sibling was wearing a giant candy corn costume...In battle a costume gives you power: if you are wearing a cardboard, you'll become a giant robot! Each costume has different abilities and attacks. The combat system is simple and weel animated, the cartoon style graphics is coloured and effective, there are many scenarios and a lot of items to collect.
A good introduction to turn based RPGsMadDemon64 | Dec. 29, 2014 | See all MadDemon64's reviews »
Costume Quest is an excellent way to introduce your child or younger sibling/cousin to the world of turn based RPGs. That is not to say that only little children will get enjoyment out of it, but that it is a very simple game and not in a bad way.
Costume Quest has you take on the role of one of two siblings going for a night of trick-or-treating. Early on the sibling you didn’t chose gets kidnapped by goblins and it is your job to rescue them using the power of your imagination to fight off various enemies. Either that or you really do transform into a giant robot or unicorn and every time you battle enemies you step on more houses than Godzilla. Either way it is a silly premise to a silly story that is enjoyable, if not a bit simple.
Speaking of simple, the combat system is bare bones, but not lacking. You get the standard “allies attack first by either attacking or guarding, followed by the enemies” system of turn based RPG, with your allies gaining access to special moves every so often in combat. These skills are dependent on the costume you wear, as are the actions you need to perform in order to do bonus damage while using a standard attack.
Combat strategies are minimal but there. You will need to figure out which enemies you need to attack fist, either due to them dealing devastating spells or healing their allies, and certain costumes have better synergy than others.
Costume Quest is a fairly fun, but easy romp through the neighborhood if you are not a child, and a good way to determine whether or not you are a fan of turn based RPGs if you are.

This title showed a lot of heart. It's a child's fantasy turned to reality. These are the kinds of games that make Double Fine great. Its personality just shines through and we can connect with the game on a deeper level than just playing it.
The combat system is great. Sure, it gets kind of repetitive a few hours in, but you can just change costumes to see other great attacks.
Overall, it's a very enjoyable game that would make you remember how awesome your childhood was.

I spent hours without realising on this game! the game art is brilliant, the best is the comic strip style! Also all the side missions as well so you can take a break fro the main story, however it slowly started to become relative but it was still very enjoyable.
What you've come to expect from Tim Schafer & Double FineBLUEKOOLAIDMAN7 | June 25, 2014 | See all BLUEKOOLAIDMAN7's reviews »
Costume Quest had that distinct vibe that only comes from a Tim Schafer & Double Fine catalog. Costume quest boasts simple but interesting visuals that compliment the game's tongue-in-cheek humor. Costume Quest is sure to keep you entertained for a few hours if you are looking for a non-serious turn-based strategy game.
As a turn-based game, Costume Quest is FAR from deep. You have access to a few abilities for the members in your party, however for the most part strategy does not extend much past attack attack, heal, attack ect. This is not necessarily a bad thing, Costume Quest is not intended to be a rigorous RPG with multiple layers of strategy, but simply a fun, if not repetitive combat system to match it's overall tone.
What to take away from Costume Quest is that its a fun,lighthearted adventure game that will give you a good laugh. Costume Quest is certainly worth the price to pick up and should entertain just about anyone,
