The cult game that should've become a classic

Psychonauts is Tim Schafer's overlooked masterpiece. It's a 3D action platformer set in a very imaginative world - or rather, a whole range of very imaginative worlds. I won't spoil anything because this game deserves to be discovered. Don't be fooled by its childish looks, while this game is absolutely suitable for kids there's also plenty to love for mature gamers.

Very Unique and Entertainaing !!

Psychonauts reminded me of the days of Crash Bandicoot on the PS1. So much fun, so much adventure blended with a great sense of humor. The most thing I loved about Psychonauts is the lack of repetitiveness, the gameplay and the ideas vary greatly as you progress through the game. You virtually don't do the same thing twice in the game...very impressive indeed. I was hesitant to try Psychonauts since so much modern games are still to be experienced..now, I'm relieved I didn't miss such a gem. Must have !!

Like no other

As soon as you start up "Psychonauts," you will instantly be greeted with a style of game unlike any other. Its simple, yet complicated gameplay allows for a unique experience to the user. The technique and gameplay mechanics highly resemble games such as "Ratchet and Clank" and "Jak and Daxter" which allows for the player to personally connect to it. You can smash and break your way around a pretty open world, which also gives you lots of freedom. This game is definitely a game that must be played since it is so unique!

Mr. Pokeylope Would Be Proud

I was bored one day and I saw this game on sale, so I gave it a go. The game went beyond my expectations and made my spare time go by fast. The controls feels dated, as it is obviously made for controllers and it has many annoying sections. The characters and dialogue is the best I've seen in any game. The wit and humor carries the whole game through with the level design being exceptional. The best part is the game expects you to do the work while the game gives you the tools necessary. I can recommend the game at full price and during a sale, it is a must have. You can run the game on a potato and has personality that makes it stand out of the AAA mess. This is simply Tim Schafer's masterpiece. Just watch out for the Milkman.

Good game, let down by awful controls.

I would love to gush and rave about Psychonauts, about the art style, characters, dialogue, humour and level design. I would love to, but I can't. I can't because of the god-awful controls. In fact, describing them as god-awful is being kind, they were so bad playing with a mouse and keyboard borderline impossible and playing with a controller, whilst vastly improved things, still wasn't great. Playing Psychonauts is like being sat at the cinema with some hyperactive toddler poking you in the eye every minute or so. No matter how good the film is, you can't enjoy it due to being constantly poked in the eye. Which is a genuine shame as Psychonauts is a great game, it's funny and weird and well-designed in terms of level design, character design and story. But just as you're in the middle of enjoying all that, along comes the poke in the eye and the controls overshadow the whole thing. There is simply no escaping the poke in the eye that is the controls. So, as much as I'd love to shout from the rooftops and tell the world to buy and play the game. I simply can't recommend it, I can't recommend that people endure being poked in the eye.
