GI: Costume Quest is cute and funny, so it may look like a good game for kids. Let me assure you: After completing the adventure (which took me about five hours), I can’t recommend Costume Quest to gamers of any age.
WOW.. Nice Review.
Should have guessed it would get a low score. They released it quietly. Went onto games marketplace and was surprise to see it there.
Didn't make a fanfare but most downloadable titles don't. The date was announced weeks back.
I only enjoy the games that have mediocre scores *runs off into the sunset laughing*
I'm about three hours into it and its been fun. A nice little tid bit to hold me over until New Vegas arrives in the mail.
I bought it and its a fun little game. If you like halloween go get it
WOWOWOOMFGGEEEEEEEE o.o ......Nice review. :|
Tim Schafer never gets a break I'm getting it regardless. There's not enough Halloween games out there (Nightmare Before X-mas, Halloween night in Bully)
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!! Halloween night on Bully is one of the most memorable chapters in my 21 years of gaming! I'm glad someone else loved it!
I loved that game. Had such a "vibe" to it, probably my fav R* franchise (yes like it better than GTA)
never got tired of the music in that one either. loved how it transitioned to a double-time feel while on the bike.
I think the seasonal aspect of Bully was a fantastic idea. I love to see it utilized again. And yes, Bully has one of the best soundtracks for a video game. It makes me think of old Scooby-doo episodes though lol
But I will wait for it to drop to $5 first.
So far i'm enjoying it. Sure it's simple but it has alot of charm and is just straight up good fun. Save system is the main bummer, can be a tad irritating, but so far no other issues.
The saves are the only thing that somewhat get me (I mean, why not add a Save option on the menu?!) Everything else is pretty charming and fun.
I can agree with the save annoyance, but I found the combat to me somewhat fun (Although regenerating your health after every battle like in FFXIII is something I can't really get used to...) and the exploration to be pretty great, too. I can say I'm having fun with the game, and if anything, it's like playing an RPG similar to Earthbound (Set in Halloween, of course) with some new stuff in here and there, with cute art and visuals.
Played the demo. Five minutes in, I went to the main menu and purchased it. For anyone that loves Halloween...it's a must-buy! It's so awesome!
I thought it was fun too. Not sure what GI is talking about.
Its Tim Freaking Schafer. That alone is worth the price of the game. I know it is a short game but it is longer than Vanquish. :)
Vanquish took me 8 hours on my first play-through. I played on Normal mode. Other than that, you're right. Tim Schafer is awesome! Keep in mind that he did not direct/write this though. It was actually made when Double Fine was being evaluated by EA. The team split up into four divisions, each making a different game concept. This is the first one they're making. The other three will be coming within the next two years. Edit: HOW DID I GET DOWN TO THREE BUBBLES?!?
+ bubbles and yeah just beat costume quest took about 5 hours. Worth 15$ :D
" After completing the adventure (which took me about five hours), " So was the 5 hours with or without the lost 45 minutes? Because it could be closer to 6 hours if not =) But regardless, I had a blast playing this in the middle of the night. The text whizzed by so fast at times I have to replay it just to get the full effect next playthrough. It was also so charming I look forward to sitting down with it again. I just found a new Halloween tradition...hope they release another next year since it will be a new tradition for me regardless. It's the Great Pumpkin of games. And if you're too good of a gamer to really enjoy it then you should stick your tongue in an electrical socket while hitting the refresh button for an update of your favorite lame sites biased reviews.
Wow I'm really surprised at this score. Granted, I haven't played the whole game, but I played the demo, and what I played of the demo I absolutely loved.
