Considering my terrible phobia of cel-shaded graphics, I was surprised to find that the cartoony style did not offend me. Rather, it added to this inexplicable sense of joy that overcame me when I finally downloaded the game on Xbox Live. For those of us who spend months planning our Halloween costumes and scouting out the best possible candy varieties to pass out to trick-or-treaters, this game is a warm welcome home. A loving, but dysfunctional home."
