Critic Reviews for Psychonauts
What's unavoidable is the fact that almost all of the problems that weigh Psychonauts down are borne out of the legacy that the platform genre itself has, and Double Fine - like so many other developers - has largely been unable to avoid falling into the same pitfalls of inconsistent level design and unwise difficulty spikes. Dammit.
There are not really enough good things to say about Psychonauts and most of them have already been said at this point. It's still an amazing platformer that married gameplay and storytelling better than any other title like it. It's a fantastic adventure that everyone should at some point play. With Psychonauts 2 on the distant horizon, though, there's never been a better time to get reacquainted with Tim Schafer's old masterpiece.
Double Fine built a really fun title on traditional platformer elements and blended several game genres in a nonviolent way. Psychonauts is not only the pilot title of this studio, but a game to which Tim, with a reputation for not doing sequels, is highly likely to do the second part.
