I randomly found Psychonauts at a rental store before I ever joined Gamefly and thought it looked neat so I picked it up. Boy was I glad I did!! Not only are the graphics in the game totally out there and fun just to look at it but the storyline and character development was awesome! There are tons of little easter eggs if you take the time to talk to everyone in the camp and many of them cracked me up when I found them. The gamplay itself wasn't too complex but gave you a very nice variety of psychic powers and I used most of them throughout the game. This game was so much fun to play, actually more fun than most any other game I've played. I definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a good time playing a fun, funny game!

Platforming goodness at it's best

For the longest time, platform games have been leaving me feeling empty. It all seemed like it was about useless fetch quests with no real fun. That all changed when I played Psychonauts.

Yes, the game is a traditional platformer. It's got big environments, lots of exploring, and of course, lots of jumping. It's even got the traditional search for items. But what sets apart this game for others of it's ilk is that this game has character. It is one of the funniest games I've played.

Graphically, the game is great. It isn't the most gorgeous thing on the PS2 but the environments are just as weird as the characters that inhabit the world and they all look great.

The gameplay is spot on. Easy to control and very precise. You couldn't ask for more.

I really feel this game transcends genres. Even if you don't like platformers, this game has such "soul" that I think anyone should play it.
