Let me say at first one thing. I haven't played Psychonauts as kid, I haven't played it when it was out in 2005. I did heard about game, but never cared to check what it is. Well, I think I would have much more fun than nowadays, but this game is still simply gem as platformer. It's really well done, challenging and simply fun. It's one of these games with awesome experience while playing. It's not only platformer, but it's mix called puzzle platformer. And puzzles in this one are not easy. Maybe I did get old, but trust me, some of them will really make your brain hard work. The story is great, characters fun to talk to. If I'm not mistaken, it have some little tutorial at beggining, but after you are on your own. Maybe because of how games are made nowadays, I felt sometimes lost on the map.
If you are looking for good platformer, some game where you could use some thinking, or simply for some great game from old school - get it and play it. It's a game for long time, you won't finish it in one sitting or one night.

This is one of the most charming games that I ever played. Everything about this game is done with an amazing care: the story, the characters (especially the main character), the gameplay. What else can you expect from Tim Schafer, the creator of Monkey Island series. The game mostly plays like a 3D platformer, but also it has some elements from point & click adventure games. Also, this game is heaven for people who like collecting stuff. The story is good enough that it can be made into a Pixar movie. Even do the game is released in 2005, the graphics are still great, same as the music score. The only downside is that it still didn't get a sequel, probably because it didn't have great sales. This is a fantastic game that you should play immediately.
Want some crazy? Get this!mirta000 | May 19, 2014 | See all mirta000's reviews »
This game is not only for everyone, but I think that it's a must play for any gamer. You're playing as a kid that can get into other peoples minds in a camp for such kids. However your parents disagree with it and they want to get you out of the camp, therefore you only have so few days to become a psychonaut. The game is a nice mix between the crazy inside other peoples mind and the weird that you find while wandering around the camp. It also has a monetary element - collect coins and spend them for new awesome gadgets. Some of the quests in the game are challenging to complete, some will surprise you and some are just entertaining. Either way it's most definitely worth buying.
A great game for kids!BlockAgent | April 25, 2014 | See all BlockAgent's reviews »
This game is a 3d platformer that reminds me of the days of the Nintendo 64 3d platformers. The gameplay is enjoyable and the game as a whole is well done and creative. As I was playing it I found myself a little embarrased anytime my wife would walk into the room because this game, from the characters to the story to the graphics, is obviously geared towards kids. While playing the game, I felt like I needed to be 8 years old for it not to seem weird or embarrassing that I was playing it. Watch some modern day cartoons on the disney channel to get a preview for how it feels to play this game. Overall a mildly decent game though.

this game is nothing if not weird. its a crazy trip into the minds of some of the weirdest people ever imagined... wait, what?
the art style is amazing and works perfectly with the twisted mind melting story that it goes with. the character designs and levels are just so ridiculous, you couldn't even imagine how they were dreamed up in the first place. this all makes sense though seeing as all the levels take place in the minds of the characters that are in them.... uuuugh head hurts... the gameplay is a simple platformer. you collect items, buy upgrades, fight monsters and try and defeat an evil genius boss monster. there's also some ridiculous jokes added in for good measure. don't be fooled though because this is NOT a little kids game. the enemies and puzzles can be very hard, and some of the subject matter that they deal with can be very dark and deranged, but that's really who double fine is when you think about it. Loved this game, and i think everyone at some point should play it. not just for the cultural references, but for the amazing experience that it provides.
