Oh...My...Brains...

Okay, first let me just say how amazingly beautiful this game is. Each of the levels looks like they locked a bunch of california art students in a room and told them to make a video game. It's beyond belief how amazingly creative theese people are.
Much like an actual dream you would have, they've taken the character's personality, reflected it into the level, and made it in the form of a platforming game.

Take for example one of my absolute favorite levels; Black Velvetopia. In this level, you enter the brain of Edgar Teglee, a latino artist who can not seem let go of his break-up with his high school sweetheart. It is your job to go in to his mind, and make him stable. In this level, everything (the colors, the style of artwork, the characters) looks like it is painted on black velvet. The characters you interact with around you are of a latino background, and the entire plot line of just THAT level is based around a bull-fighting kind of theme.

Love, Heartbreak, Adventure, Comedy, Matadors; All of this is going on...IN JUST ONE LEVEL

How incredible is that!? Each level is its own complete seperate, unique story line, yet it all comes together. I could go on forever, but i will spare you all the details. Find out for Yourself how amazing this game is

With its beautiful artwork, top-notch voice acting, INCREDIBLE and relationship-based storyline, plus one of the funniest scripts I've heard in a long time, Psychonauts is A MUST PLAY. If you pass up this rare gem, you will sorely dissapointed.

This is a game ANY gamer can appreciate. Heck, why are you still reading this review? GET OUT THERE AND RENT THIS GAME NOW!

10 out of 10 :D

Okay, I'll get straight to what I want to say. RENT IT NOW! This is a rare kind of game to come by. It doesn't only have lots of creativity and care put into it but there is a funny script and a wonderful story. The game play is a very well balanced difficulty, also a must for platforming gamers. The levels are each unique in thier own way. Finally the characters are very recognizable and interesting to look at. Each one is totally different from the next. Bottom line if you want a great game get this one or you will regret it for the rest of your life.

Let me just say, I wish I could have played this game back when it first came out. There is so much to enjoy with this game and so little, if anything, wrong with it.

The storyline and characters are amazing. Voice actors are great. I even recognized the make characters voice as one of the people from Angry Beavers on Nickelodeon.

Not only is the storyline great to follow along but there are some fun side things to do as well, scavenger hunts, collecting arrow heads with equipped items. Entering peoples brains to see how really messed up their world is, is hilarious. I loved the guardsman and painters brains, lol.

You can't go wrong with this game even if your playing games on your PS3 right now. Take my advise and play this game all the way till the end.
