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,

You play as one of the two twins trick-or-treating on Halloween. One of the twins gets kidnapped and you go on a long and crazy quest to save them. You assemble the team and use your costumes to fight the evils ahead to get to your sibling.
The story is very sweet. It's about two siblings that dislike each other, but in their hearts love each other. It's also about making friends. It's such a good hearted game that I would recommend for any child (and any adult searching for a sweet story).
The fighting mechanic is quite easy. I did not have any trouble going trough this game at all.
The environment is imaginative. You are impatiently waiting for a new chapter, because of how extremely the environments change.
Looking for something sweet? Or just want a laugh? Get this game, because it's most definitely fun!
Hard but funAkiMatti | April 9, 2014 | See all AkiMatti's reviews »
Costume Quest reminds me a lot of Psychonauts with the world design. Kids with big heads and a cartoonish world filled with humor. That is what CQ is about.
You go around in your rollerblades and your halloween costumes, gathering sweets and completing quests. Eventually you will save the town from the attack of some ogre monsters by using you costumes that will turn into awesome mechasuits,on combat. Combat is semi turn-based with some timing. Easy enough.
Cons: The map could be better, I got lost many times and didn't know where I was supposed to go.
Pros: Great world, great dialogue, sounds, and character design. Controls work great especially with a pad. Humour.
Short but sweet....HAdamienjameswebb | Feb. 3, 2014 | See all damienjameswebb's reviews »
So this is pretty much just FF with kids and candy. the game is short, but soooo entertaining at the same time. it does have a good base in the art style. it works perfectly, and that you go into the kids imagination for the fight sequences is hilarious. There are cards to collect that give you power boots or defensive advantages, and the bosses can actually be really hard to try and battle at times. the downside is that this game is terribly short. it does have an expansion of sorts, but i wish it could have been more of an RPG in the way of FF.

This is a fantastic Double Fine game with great writing, hilarious references to pop culture, and jrpg elements. The turn-based battle sequences are pretty cool but get repetitive after a while. There are upgrades for your characters that you can buy and use throughout the game that affect battles which are clever and useful.
It's a halloween-themed game in which goblins have taken your sibling and you go out on a quest to rescue them. It's a cute game that doesn't take terribly long (about 5 hours). There are Steam achievements, and you'll want to perfect this game.
