Popular Review: "I’ve rarely played anything that is so unashamedly itself. Each hour is different, each character distinct and memorable, each new psychic playground full of surprises. There are a few things here that belong back in 2005, such as an obsession with collectibles and a redundant tree of upgrades that only confuses the array of psychic powers. But this is a standout title that reminds us why 3D platformers were once gaming’s most popular genre." - Guardian

My Review: 16 years of waiting. And it's worth that! This game rocks, simple as that. The creativity in the theming and design of the levels is just jaw-dropping; the writing, story, and characters are streets ahead of the typical modern AAA driven, and the game looks and sounds gorgeous. But the combat and platforming can still be clunky at times. If you have Xbox Game Pass, you should try this. If you don't have Xbox Game Pass, but you're into platformers and/or like surrealism and games that do something different, you can't go wrong here.

GOTY. 

I played Psychonauts for the first time when I was 10 years old. I’m now 24 and and working on 3D modeling for game design and it is entirely indebted to Psychonauts. Needless to say, this game was worth the wait and had me roaring in laughter.

A more than worthy sequel for the classic that is Psychonauts.
A fun story and some really cool levels make for a good time. The ability switching was a total ball drop though. Date
