IGN: Costume Quest Review

Costume Quest does a lot of things right – it’s humorous, has a great art style that fits the childish theme, a decent battle system, and costumes that double as super powers. Sure, the story is cheesy, but it's also heart-warming and the ending leaves you with a smile on your face. But despite these great qualities, the game does have its shortcomings -- the campaign feels short, side-quests can get repetitive, there isn’t much in the way of character customization, and $15 seems a bit steep. Still, it's a great way to relive the nostalgia of your trick or treating days, so you should give it a try, especially if there's a price drop.

Presentation - 8.5
Graphics - 8.0
Sound - 8.5
Gameplay - 7.0
Lasting Appeal - 7.0

Why shouldn't you?
Not like 7.5 means "Don't buy it".

... but not for 1200 pts.

I wouldn't be surprised if next week on Halloween it gets a 1-day sale for 800 pts or something. Will probably get it then, or wait till it finally does drop in price.

7.5 could be anything from 6-9 depending on the person, at least from my experience with reviews.

It's a great game. The presentation is perfect the game play is fun. The fighting is awesome. If ya got PSN get this game. Its worth the price if ya love all things Halloween!!!!

Played the demo it was good they need more rpg games like this one on disc based, psn based.

The game is way too easy. There is 0 challenge & combat is nothing but a bunch of QTEs.

Esena2771d ago

Did you actually play the game or are you just guessing it's too easy?

hay2771d ago

Probably played the demo only.

Quagmire2771d ago (Edited 2771d ago )

Main factors unforunately causing me to pass up on this game are:

Short Length
Turn-Based Fighting
Lack of Voices
And repetitive missions.

Too bad, was wanting to play this too.

I think I will buy it if it goes down to $10 but it just seems really easy.

I mean I didn't come close to dying and it doesn't seem that it gets tougher as the game goes on
