TGV Review: Costume Quest

Costume Quest is an incredibly charming, whimsical experience from start to finish, that feels right in just about every decision it makes. With impeccable timing and a fine balance between a sharp, observant wit and pure, adorable innocence, Costume Quest manages to take you on a great ride through life of a child. When I finished the game, I wanted nothing but to go out in the woods and play just like I used too when I was young.

Really need to get my hands on this.

I am really surprised with the positive reviews for this PSN game

I played the demo and wasn't really impressed, the battles were boring, and the trick or treat aspect felt like a chore.

Did anyone buy this game, and when so: does the battle gameplay become better when you progress in the game?

The battles get a little, LITTLE more difficult after a while, and the costume powers (Hell, the costumes as a whole) is somewhat well implemented. On the downside, quests can get a little boring and the battles still lack some challenge, and hell, if you lose them you re-appear right where you died.

I'd say it's a game with its flaws (Mainly the lack of challenge and some flexibility on gameplay), but it's so charming and so great you can overlook them and have a good time with the game.

I'd really recommend this to anyone who has 15$ to spare, because it's well worth it.

Like I say in the actual review, The battle system gets to be a little too simple, but I found the game enjoyable from hour 1, so maybe it's just not for you? I had a lot of fun with it, though.

I liked the demo but I'll wait on purchasing it, $15.00 seems a little steep for me so maybe later on or when its on sale. I like these games the humour is usually pretty good.

I can't wait to play this. I really need to just buck up and buy it, but my heart tells me "Wait until it's on a Gold Deal."

it's really funny

you can feel the Tim Schaffer seal of fun on this game

the fighting system is quite bland, but it fits well with that kind of small, sweet experience

I actually liked this game for not trying to be funny like Brutal Legend and the halloween theme thing is a pretty nice touch.
